Let me start by saying I have NEVER left a hotel that I had pre-booked.... NEVER. My husband booked this for three days and we made it through one. Furniture was badly stained, room was supposed to be no smoking but it smelled like cigarette smoke and mold, hair dryer was missing the front protective grille and also had a...

I just needed someplace to stay for one night to be close to work the next morning. This was the cheapest but the most disgusting place I've ever stayed! My room was 'non'smoking yet reeked of cigarette smoke and there was a cigarette filter on the floor. There was hair on the bathroom floor, what looked like small 'shells' on...

This is without a doubt the worst motel we have ever stayed in. We don't mind older, not-so-modern motels, but this was not just old. It was filthy! When we got to our room we were surprised to see the door to the balcony wide open. We're guessing that was to try to air out the horrible moldy smell. We...

This was the nastiest place I've ever stayed at. It was filthy dirty. There was black mold on the ceilings. It smelled horrible. The noise is so bad you cannot sleep. This place should be condemned and torn down. Howard Johnson should be ashamed that they are even associated with this dump.

“NON-SMOKING Rooms 2nd floor I recommend Rooms 206 or 204 because I have stayed in each very clean room I especially liked room 206 even though there was a small stain on the rug (probably soda or coffee) no bugs room 206 bathroom renovated very clean could upgrade tub and shower fixture but overall both good rooms.BOTH ROOMS ARE FACING THE HIGHWAY ,GREAT VIEW especially at night with traffic!”
