We have been coming to this hotel for the past 10 years, what a change in the room services. Rooms are being updated, a little better than before. Had a room for 7 nights. Free breakfast from 6 to 9am is OK, for a quick start to a day. Pool was clean and warm, towels were supplied at the front... More

I have frequented the Howard Johnson at this location many nights since May 2016 and would recommend it to anyone. Jason, General Manager, and his team have made tremendous improvements to the property. All of the staff, including the housekeepers, were most accommodating and friendly. My room was very clean and smelled fresh. I can't write a review and not... More

Front Desk staff was great! Windows are open to the newly redone rooms and they look great can't wait to stay in one! Breakfast was best I ever seen in a budget hotel. I use this hotel frequently and it just gets better and better. Hats off to the new management.
