This Hotel is under remodeling and the rooms that are finished are very nice. It was refreshing to see the new decor and new matttress but should have new bedding to go with the new decor

We have stayed at many Howard Johnsons over the years. This was the worst. It was dated, dirty, and very bare. It took us 3 nights of asking to get a chair, we never had a lamp. They were stingy with towels and the majority of the staff was unhelpful.

This hotel is decent. The rooms are dated but the mattresses are amazing. The customer service is also really good. I must say the one thing I did not like is that their breakfast is 5-9 every day including weekends. Pool is really small. There is plenty of parking so no worries there. It is pretty close to a gas...

Besides the fact that the tv turned on and off, the lights did the same. The coffee pot was dollar store quality and the breakfast was too. I was also disappointed that the room was on the fourth floor, not the first, as agreed to when reserved. The toilet clogged in the morning.

“There are no good rooms as far as I can tell.”
  • stained curtain would not cover window so we had to close it in the door
  • This was the iron. covered in tape and bare wires where plug should be
  • The phone was missing a cord. The front desk was notified and did nothing for the 3 days I was t
  • curtains didn't close so we used the room pen to fasten them.
