“I'm not sure that I want everyone to know how great this place is.”
Reviewed November 5, 2012

We took a chance and stayed in this Howard Johnson's for 2 nights while visiting family. What a wonderful decision. The rooms and lobby were recently renovated. Not just
refreshed, but totally renovated. New tile, furniture, beds, towels, flat screen TV, etc. The tub had been removed and replaced with a walk in shower that had floor to ceiling ceramic tile. Much more upscale than the price.

The breakfast was in the beautiful new lobby. It had the basic items you would expect. Toast, bagels,donuts, cereal. Very clean with lots of comfortable seating.

The only minor complaint would be that the curtains didn't come together in the middle. We just clipped them together. Not a problem.

We stayed during the week and the rates were so reasonable. Everything is higher on the weekend and during special events in this big tourist area. I totally recommend this motel.

Can't be beat for the money. Water pressure was the main problem as well as a few minor things but for $60 a night on the weekends, book it. I wouldn't bother with the loyalty program. I booked 6 nights worth of stay and apparently have nothing to show for it.
