I just wasn't impressed with this property. It wasn't nothing like the pictures like everything else in life. I will not be returning to the Howard Johnson properties any time soon

My gf and I stayed here while attending a convention at the convention center. The staff was very polite and the area was very peaceful. The hotel is also very close to a wide variety of restaurants. So for those looking for a nice or place to sleep after having some good bites, then this is the hotel for you.
