“generally a good stay”
Reviewed July 2, 2013

The room was what I wanted clean, quiet, safe, and smoke free smell. The highway in front is a mean piece of road. There is a diner next door. The next best thing you can do is eat before you check in. What ever you do do not park under the trees near entrance c. Before I left I had to clean off piles of bird poo off of my car.

After spending a frustrating and difficult time trying to find a "coupon" motel room late Sat afternoon (dog show in town) on rt 1, we pulled into an easily accessed parking lot to form plan B, and found ourselves in an oasis of tranquility named Howard Johnson. The male desk clerk was quite accommodating, giving us a budget priced 2-bed room rate, changed our room to 1st floor without us asking when we mentioned bicycles (we were easily able to bring them into the room through the sliding glass door facing the parking lot, and the room easily accommodated the bikes without interfering with our movements). Typically the coffee system in the room had only powdered lightener and one coffee bag, so I asked the same very nice clerk for another coffee bag and real lightener; he gave me a covered styrofoam cup full of milk to take to my room for that night's and following morning's coffee (yes, refrigerator was included). The grounds and near-rooms were quiet, which was unexpected given the number of cars I saw the next morning in a clean and non-pot-holed parking lot. The bathroom was quite clean and modern, the rugs looked new, the other guests I observed did not arouse any apprehension. So if the N J Grounds for Sculpture or bicycling the Raritan canal tow path or visiting trendy towns on either side of the Delaware River (New Hope anyone?) is on your to-do list, this motel will be a positive surprise. Just remember it's not a new motel, just a good one. Hey, there's even a diner in the same parking lot with the nicest waiter, and the patrons all seemed to be locals!

Room Tip: Our room was in the rear, furthest away from rt 1 and the office, which made it quiet and peaceful.
