I always wanted to stay at this Howard Johnson Inn because sooner or later it will be bulldozed and replaced with a cookie-cutter motel. Traveling the east coast corridor between NJ and Florida in the late 1960’s/early 1970’s, I remember the orange roofed restaurants next door to the HJ Lodge or Inn. The rooms were always huge and there was a patio or balcony with 2 lounge chairs. The pool was Olympic sized and we could look forward to a decent meal and ice cream for dessert.

Today, usually staying at a HoJo you just never know what your going to get. HoJo is just a name today - a franchise with easy standards to follow. You can take the name and plaster it on any cookie-cutter motel you want to. Honestly, the corporate company that owns the franchise system should just retire the HJ name because its not the same anymore. I will go farther and retire Ramada Inn and Days Inn - names that meant quality in their glory years under private ownership.

The New Stanton, Pa Howard Johnson motel - built in 1960 is pretty old already. Don’t get me wrong, it’s not falling apart, it was clean, and I didn’t notice any long term residents. The owner was pleasant and we talked about the golden years of HJ. I requested a king room far from the pool. My room had a microwave and mini-fridge, cable with 78 channels and the old style table and 2 chairs. Yes I’m spoiled since I rather have either a recliner or lounge chair with ottoman. The old Westinghouse air conditioner kept the room cold, though a bit noisy for some I rather have it that way to drown out noise - which there was none even though the place was packed. Original HJ motels like New Stanton’s were very sound-proof, constructed of cement walls and floors. Everything worked except the free wireless internet. The signal was there but it just didn’t connect. I called the front desk and he agreed that there was a problem but it was something beyond his control. If I was staying more than one night it would have been a problem for me. My room also had a patio with 2 plastic chairs.

There is a self-service laundry available, and continental breakfast was served in a former guest room. Basic fare along with a hot waffles. The coffee was the best I ever tasted at a motel. The HJ restaurant is long gone, replaced by a Sheetz gas station. But there are plenty of fast-food joints within walking distance along with an Eat-n-Park restaurant across the street.

Small problem at check-in which the staff readily fixed. No decaf coffee at the continental breakfast, but otherwise breakfast was good. Room was very large and very clean. Have paid much more for much less elsewhere. Would stay there again.

We were on a long trip and instead of pre=booking we decided to get a hotel when we were tired. After being offered only smoking rooms in other pricier (read "new") hotels in New Stanton, we went to the Howard Johnson's, got a very nice rate and a nice room. It's an older hotel with older design, but has been redone but is spotlessly clean and really nice. All the rooms have balconies or little sitting areas outside. I liked the vaulted ceiling with beams in our second floor room. The big draw for the kids after weeks of tiny indoor pools was the extra large, deep outdoor swimming pool. They had a blast and we did too. I'd skip the free breakfast (unless you're a big tiny donut or tiny muffin fan) and go across the street to Eat n' Park (and you get a 10% discount with your room key) or the McDonald's. Overall, a delight after being charged much more for much less.
