We wish to give a big thanks to Nichole at the front desk, who helped us sort out a problem with our room. She was very nice and helpful. Priceline support was not helpful and Nichole made the effort to find a room for our family for the night at 11:00 PM. Coming from L.I., N.Y. it was refreshing to meet someone who was willing to out of their way to help us. Thank you Nichole!

I have to say I was pretty disappointed this trip, we have stayed at this Howard Johnson many times in the past and have never been as unhappy. We arrived in our room to find the wall paper coming off the wall, the bed spread was stained with who knows what, the faucet was not attached to the sink in the bathroom I called the front desk and they said there was no Maintenance Man there at the time and they would send someone tomorrow and no one ever came(my husband tightened as best he could without having tools), the knob for the faucet was not attached, it came off in my hand, the message light on the phone blinked constantly even though there were no messages, the microwave was missing a leg, the refrigerator was missing the freezer door and the freezer compartment was in serious need of defrosting. The room itself was clean and had new carpet, however the carpeting was coming off the bottom of the wall in several places. Our second room for this trip was in better condition, however the curtain rod was falling off the wall, the tree outside the balcony was over grown and made it difficult to see anything but the tree and it scraped the balcony all night long, making it difficult to sleep. Also, they took out all of the Vending Machines, except for the soda machines. Breakfast was not bad the first day, however the second day, there were so many people trying to make waffles and breakfast was only until 9:30 a.m. and the gentlemen who was in charge of the breakfast room locked the door at 9:30 a.m. so that no one could get in, so if you left and came back you were unable to get breakfast. When the hotel is as full as it was, I think more time should be allocated for breakfast. The last time we stayed at this H.J. was two years ago and it was much better, although I had left two pillows behind and had asked for them to be sent back to me, I was told that they were sent, but never received them to this day. I can honestly say that we would probably never stay at this Howard Johnson again.

We stayed one night at this hotel on route to Canada from Washington D.C. The room was your average run of the mill hotel room. The hotel room was relatively clean, the T.V. was operational, WiFi Internet was not operational and never did work even after calling the front desk and tech support. The washroom was relatively clean, no bugs, air conditioner was operational, mattress is probably due for replacement, carpets were also nearing a date with the steam cleaner! As we were on the main floor, the sliding patio doors leading to the parking lot did not have an operational lock but rather a thin aluminum bar which latched into the door.

All in all, it was a relatively good stay. The staff were very nice and friendly. There was plenty of parking space and the location of the hotel was near the major highway, restaurants, shopping facilities etc. We did have a good sleep and pleasant stay.
