The rooms were nice and the room service personnel were great. That's where it ends. We went up with 2 other families for 5 nights. The 1st night was fine. The second night there was a high school soccer team there that used the hallways as a soccer field bouncing the ball off room doors. Calls to the front desk were useless. The second night was thew girls turn as they had to play a tag game called jail break thru the hallways. I had to yell at them and file a complaint at the front desk with another couple. The 4th night was fine however the 5th night at around 3:30 am there was a domestic fight in one of the rooms in our hallway. Other people were yelling and cursing at them to stop and one individual went and banged on their door. No we will never stay there again. We got very little if any rest.

Room Tip: Find another hotel to stay at if you want to sleep at all.

Spent this weekend at the hotel for a soccer tournament. Everyone in our group was complaining that the rooms were old and musty smelling and they were not happy at all. I don't expect a HJ to be a luxury hotel so I didn't have high expectations. I was the only one who felt the room was fine. It was clean, looked recently painted, the bathroom was fine, the only thing I saw was in the hallways the carpet was very worn, but in my room it was fine. The location is good also. We had free breakfast because we were with a special travel agency. It was a very limited, lacking breakfast, but we didn't have a lot of time for breakfast so for me I just wanted to get something in my stomach to hold me over until lunchtime so it was sufficient. If you're looking for an inexpensive place in a central location I think this is fine, just know what to expect.

Room Tip: They have a few rooms with 2 queen beds. Btw, it's 2 floors high and there's no elevator.

Stayed at the Howard johnsons in Bartonsville this past weekend. Good points: Close to many attractions, good resturants right across the street, reasonable priced, pretty clean, also the resturant on premesis was pretty good. Bad points: Although hotel was mostly clean it could definately use some updating. Bathroom was clean except what looked like mold behind the toilet. The pool leaves a lot to be desired. And thin walls....unfortunately could hear EVERYTHING that up stairs neighbors were doing at 1:30 in the morning. So overall ok for a 1 or 2 night stay. Not somewhere I'd like to be for an extended stay.

Stayed here over Mother's Day weekend. The price was right and the location is convenient. The food at the restaurant and bar was very good. The hotel room was as expected -- clean and quiet. No complaints on that. You should definitely consider staying here if traveling to the Poconos area.
