If you are just looking for a cheap place to lay your head for the night, don't be fooled by the prices! This hotel is disgusting. We got a room with a hot tub and as soon as I turned it on, spiders came gushing out of the jets. Stains everywhere! There were several junkies and drug deals going on... More

Check-in took almost 30 minutes because they had to change the name on our reservation. Our room was very dirty (moths, bugs, dirt)...but we arrived at 2 am so not in the mood to have it cleaned and there were no other rooms available. The shower was nice, and the bed was comfortable (and not dirty).

When I made the reservation the woman I spoke to was extremely pleasant and patient. Mark was there to check me in at 1:00AM. He was very helpful....just seems like a great guy. The room was what I expected. I had my 17 year old son and 3 year old daughter with me. We really enjoyed our stay.

We arrived at this hotel after leaving our original hotel due to the room conditions at the original hotel. These seemed to have been the last 2 rooms available within a 30 mile radius of our event at an affordable price. The front desk staff were incredibly welcoming and helpful. We were met with a smile, no matter which staff... More

This is the least expensive decent motel in the area. That alone will appeal to many. Not so highly visible, so look closely to find it.

Something in that hotel that they use to clean the hotel burned my eyes. I will never stay there again.

The staff was nice and helpful, BUT the hotel needs new furnishings, better continental breakfast, new flooring, better tv service and just needs to be more clean. The ice machine had little chunks of brown flecks in the ice and it was very dirty on the outside too. Needless to say we did not use the ice. Our phone was... More

This Howard Johnson is quite dated. The carpet was dirty and stained. It had a huge rip right in the middle of the floor between the beds. With 2 floors of rooms there was no elevator to assist with baggage. Only 2 flights of stairs at the end of the hallway. There were black hard shelled bugs crawling on the... More
