“Worlds better than my expectations”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 4, 2013

My family and I stayed here for a week over the Christmas holiday. I had expected an average room and hotel. However, this hotel is was wonderfull. The entire hotel, including our rooms were impeccably clean, spacious , quiet and comfortable. The continental breakfast every morning was similar to other hotels in this pricepoint, but the big difference here was that they offered more variety. Every staff member we encountered was friendly,helpful and efficient. My family travels alot throughout the year, and I would rate this as one of the better places we have stayed in the U.S.

We stayed at the hotel over the new years holiday. It was an amazing value. The room was very nice and clean. The walls are thick. We heard some noice but not alot. Pool area was great, especially with the two hot tubs. Central location to most activities. Staff very helpful. The breakfast was okay. They did well at keeping it stocked. It does end at 900 so there was a rush.

Rooms were very nice. Sometimes HoJo's are not the best but this place was great friendly and clean and affordable. Its nice to stay somewhere that the room is worth the price. Breakfast was quick and easy and the rooms were easy to get to. Slept good even thought the place was pretty busy.

My wife and I found this Howard Johnson's to be one of the best value hotels we stayed at recently. The room quality was what we would expect from a much higher priced accommodation. They had a nice breakfast and the staff was helpful. We look forward to staying here again.
