Our travel agent made the reservation for this hotel for our night before boarding our cruise. The shuttle service from the airport to the hotel was excellent, but as we drove into this seedy part of town we began to understand why we were having trouble finding a restaurant to meet with family later that night.
The hotel is like going back to the 60's and a travel lodge style hotel. The price for a night's stay is double what the room is worth. The sign out front boasts it's free wireless internet. Unfortunately despite working with their technical support it never worked.
The Mexican restaurant above the lobby served as our meeting place with family. The food was excellent and atmosphere was good.
The complimentary breakfast had nothing for a person who has to eat gluten-free. So we made the long walk to the Starbucks across the street to have something to eat. Walking through the homeless and having them eying your tablets made for an interesting morning.
Howard Johnson charges $10 to drive you 4 miles to the pier for your cruise which is a bit high. $5 would be a better price.
Our stay was ok, but if we revisit we would stay in a better hotel.
