We decided at the last minute to reserve a room here instead of driving back from Outer Banks all in one night. I would guess by the looks of things that this used to be nice 20 years ago, but it is not now. There were two young women sitting on a bench near the entrance to our room who...

We were heading from FL to CT and stopped here to sleep. I was a little weary after reading the reviews but we tried it anyways. The price was average. The staff was polite. The room smelled fine. There were some stains on the pillow cases so we didn't use the pillows. The bathroom looked kind of gross like it...

Last minute check in, asked the rate for a double bed room for one night and was quoted $70.00 by room clerk. The room was dingy, a little smelly, and the bathroom was cleaned, but old and stained. I checked on line with Chain website and the price if I booked online in their lobby or driveway for the night...

I was not going to do a review on this Inn as I guess I got what I paid for. However, the reviews on their web site were decent, so I took a chance as it was where I wanted to be. It turned out to be one of the worst experiences ever at an Inn. We were checked into...

This hotel is just terrible! Never ever will stay again. Shower curtain rod was broke, the bathroom door had no lock. They only gave us TWO towels for 4 people. The hallway ceiling looked like it was about to fall in. And the breakfast was terrible. The pool water was dingy and green and I refused to let my son...

I understand that $36 a night is a really low price but I guess you get what you pay for with Howard Johnson in Petersburg, Virginia. This was probably the worst stay I have ever had at a hotel. I do not recommend this hotel to anyone. On about day 2 of our 6 day stay I started logging down...
