Just a few miles from the airport--a very easy drive--this Howard Johnson is pretty much what you would expect: clean, neat, well run. Front desk staff get an "A" for being helpful. The room was well stocked: fridge, microwave, coffee maker, hairdryer. The bed was comfortable and I wasn't bothered by noise (and I am a light sleeper). There are about 3 fast food and 3 regular restaurants within walking distance.
Less than perfect: The breakfast options were pretty dreary, especially the muffins, which had been quartered for some reason, leaving them pretty dried out after an hour or two. Patrons should also be advised that there is no elevator in this 2-story hotel. No problem for me, but it might be for some.
I would stay here again without question.
