Room was very worn out with a dirty looking tub, mismatched tiles in the bathroom. Seemed clean but that was about it.

After a 10 hour drive, I was very pleased when I arrived at the Florence SC Howard Johnson Inn, conveniently located from I-95 The Staff was friendly and efficient. The room was comfortable and clean. There was a refrigerator, microwave and coffee maker in the room, as well as internet access and cable TV.

Good room at a good rate with plenty of parking and free coffee. Staff is good and helpful, will stay again when in town. Regardless of renovation, staff seem to care about guest at all times. Good to see money being put back into property.

Shower tile was in bad shape, they were losing their coating, mattresses were old, and worn out, pillows were lumpy, bathtub was old and stained. Did have a good refrigerator, microwave, and TV, and a new sink.
