Made reservations date latter October; upon need to change reservations no way to contact this hotel and Wyndham owners of Howard Johnson cannot either, as they say not part of Wyndham. I've even gone through other resource to contact this hotel. For several years we had used this place and liked. Something has changed.

We went to eat dinner & decided to find another hotel ... the clerk was very nice & refunded the full (prepaid) amount ... if I could rate this place a minus rating it would be in the negative...

This place looks like it was really nice in the 1990's but hasn't been taken care of in this century. The room is decent but not great, the "continental breakfast" is orange juice, milk and cereal. The staff is helpful and friendly. The property is highly overgrown, hasn't been mowed in ages( a crew was there working on the property...
