    Great hotel. I definitely enjoyed my stay and will return. The rooms were clean, the staff were very friendly and the amenities were excellent. It was a great location as well. The price is also very reasonable.

    The rooms are big. Air conditioning always dependable, which is key in Texas. The location is great and the front desk clerks (Brian) are always there to help.

    Price was great, very clean rooms. Staff was very helpful. Rooms a very dated, but clean. The air conditioner is very loud, and kept waking me up every time it went on. Unable to hear the TV over the air conditioner. Overall, nice place.

    It was dirty, un attended, old fashioned, and toilet has urine from the last customer. It was disgusting!! I will never stay there or in any Howard Johnson hotel again. This was our first and last time
