“Okay room”
Reviewed March 2, 2009

Okay room located conveniently by the highway. It was clean, not so quiet. Bed okay.

This is a great motel for those traveling with pets. It's $11.22 extra for your pet. They have a large area to walk your dog, free breakfast (toast, bagels, fruit, donuts, juice, coffee, tea), clean rooms, comfortable beds, quiet atmosphere, and friendly service. We stayed in room #214 on the second level on 4/30/08.

  • Liked — Convenient location, good stopping point for east coast travel.
  • Disliked — The bathroom needs to be upgraded.

After reading other reviews I was looking forward to my stay....... NOT AT ALL.....Rude clerk upon arrival....dirty walls and ceilings in entire room. bathroom was clean but old and nasty with cigarette burns all over the place .... broken heater only allowed the room to be 90 degress or 60 degrees .... pool was black and had garbage floating in it....hotel was almost empty...hotel would be great after a complete renovation....great location

this hotel is very clean and modernized. nice furniture and lobby. only problem i saw was when we arrived at 6pm on a sunday, the man in charge at check in was not very friendly, quite cold. did not get a good impression of place from him or help. however we were pleased with the room and the breakfast hostess in the morning. we told her we were not greeted very pleasantly and she said that man has been here for 6 years now. dont know how.according to our impression of him though. would definitely recommend to travelers.

I stayed here two nights on my trip south. My first time at a HoJo Express and it left a very good impression. Clean room, free internet and a typical free breakfast. My top rating for a motel.

This motel is very good for the price. The room was clean and spacious, and the night clerk was quite energetic and even turned the heat on in the room for us before we got to it.

The building exterior does have an "interesting" color scheme, and the breakfast is limited, but overall it was great value.

  • Liked — Good value, convient to the interstate
  • Disliked — none

We were returning from a week at Disney and worn out. The weather was starting to get bad, so we saw the Howard Johnson and pulled off the interstate. I have to admit, I was very leery of it, but it was perfectly fine. The beds were heavenly to sleep on and everything was clean. We wanted to try the pool, but the weather was too bad. I would stay here again with my two sons.
