Reviewed June 4, 2012

Stayed here to rest on the way to another destination. The guy who checked me in was very friendley and nice. The room ws clean and the bed was comfortable. Free parking and WiFi. My only complaint is that that despite being non-smoking, the hallway and room had that smell like someone sprayed a bunch of different air freshners to mask odors.

The hotels in the Poconos area are all $$$ in the summer. Stayed at this hotel for the weekend and got very friendly service. The service staff, front desk and managers were welcoming and made you feel at home. The rooms are comfortable, with clean beds, can't ask for more much more than that.

Spent 2 nights here last month on business. Was up all night by the next door units door constantly opening and closing. It was occupied by 2 "ladies" who had a lot of guests. Terrible internet service, dingy room. Went to lobby the next evening to complain but the employees were more interested in talking to each other than working.

Stayed for just one night at $140 for the night expected nicer facility. As soon as we walked in the door we recognized a strong smoke odor. (it had no smoking on the door) Thank heavens our room was smoke free. It was dark and dingy and felt like we were sleeping in someones basement. The carpets and chair was old and dirty looking and I had my husband lift the matress to check for bugs.....I was afraid to bring my bags to the room? After a "once over" it seemed clean so we got settled. Walking around the hotel we noticed rusted lights, torn sofas, weeds, broken picnic tables, baquet chairs in the pool area etc. Not a place we would ever stay again. I expected a nice clean place for the rating and price. (i just hope they didn't have bugs....still a little nervous?)

My son had a state contest in the area so we decided to stay at this Howard Johnson. The kids had a great time in the pool. I lost my Seiko Divers watch during our visit but it wasn't until about two weeks after we got home that I realized it. I thought there was a possibility I lost it in the room. I called the hotel and asked the customer service person if anyone turned in a watch ot the lost and found. He said no so I thought that was the end of that. I gave him my room number and about an hour later he called me back and said they found it. Most customer service people would not have taken any action but this individual did. Not only was he professional but honest as he could have just kept the watch which was fairly valuable.All other aspects of the hotel were also excellent.

Reserved a "non-smoking" room and was pleased that it was in a N.S. Wing. Turned the corner to get to the room and was hit by a wave of cigarette odor. if smoke odor bothers you stay someplace else! Room smelled awful too. Front desk staff was very pleasant, but won't stay here again.
