I was very unimpressed with this hotel that promotes on it's sign "new rooms". If this is new for Howard Johnson they must be suck back in the 80s. I'm not typically one to complain but this room just felt dirty. The tub had a bunch of its paint chipped off. There were questionable spots on the bedding. There was... More

If you are looking for a basic no frills place to crash after a day at Cedar Point then this is it. Breakfast is toast or a muffin and a apple plus coffee. Rooms are ok. Could be cleaner. But it's just a place to crash for a night it's fine

It was acceptable for the amount of time we were going to spend in it. Had a TV and a shower, wifi, and two beds. I don't think there was a fridge... More

This place is nothing as advertised. The rooms were like prison cells. Extremely small. You actually bump into stuff walking by. Window did not have screens so bugs every where. Won't be coming here ever again.

Dear Guest, Thank you for the review. I’m sorry that the size of the room and a problem with the window screen detracted so much from your stay with us. Our intention is to provide the best value in the area. While we satisfy many guests, I sincerely regret that we failed you and hope you will come again soon... More

This place was tiny, our room was tiny but relatively clean. I could tell the room had been recently painted, but not professionally. The white paint spill on the curtain upset my niece, as she thought it looked like...something else... The bed was nice and firm and the sheets were clean, which I loved and slept like a baby. We...

They need to offer mini fridges in the rooms, guests like to have a place for leftovers and beverages.
