My husband and I were very dissatisfied with room 216. We had requested the room with a jacuzzi which we got, but the jacuzzi did not work properly. My husband had to keep his finger on the button for it to stay on and then when it stayed there was black film coming out of the jets. The caulking around the jacuzzi was coming apart. The furniture in the room was damaged and water logged. The furniture was the real fake press wood compare to what was shown on the internet photos. Overall we would not recommend the Howard Johnson to our friends or anyone who would ask us about it. We expected a nice and descent room for relaxation which we were not impressed the moment we walked into the room. The receptionist could only state that she was "Sorry" for the inconvenience. Howard Johnson is off our list of Hotels. For the price we paided it was not worth it.

The room was clean and I slept great. Makes for a wonderful stay. Everyone was so friendly. What else could you ask for? Breakfast was super and lots of good options close by for dinner. Go there and you will be happy you did as other hotels give you a lot less for a lot more money! Go hojo you rock...

We always have a great stay they hotel is very nice and extremely roomy. The staff is always helpful and nice. It is only 10 mintues from the hospital that is a big plus to only have to drive 10 minutes. WE have never had an problems and have enjoyed each time we stayed here.
