My check-in and check-out went well; although the person who checked me in did not give me directions on how to get to my room and there wasn't much signage in the large lobby to point out where the rooms were. My room was on the first floor, near the end of a hallway, with a view of the parking...

Front desk staff was very friendly and efficient. The pool was nice, and the bar was fun, Brittany kept our drinks full and was very personable. After checking out we realized...

Pleasantly surprised with this HoJo...although they were doing some minor remodeling, really loved the atrium-style hotel with indoor pool. The breakfast area was very large, and food was good with nice choices. The room was spacious and appointed nicely. And really...

This was my last hotel stay during an 8500+ mile roadtrip! I don't normally stay at Howard Johnson's, but was definitely swayed by Trip Advisor reviews. I was so glad I did! My room was recently renovated and sparkling clean. The bed was really comfortable. After resting for an hour or so I noticed that the thermostat temp was going...

Spent a few nights here on a business trip. The room was bigger than average and very comfortable. There were plenty of towels each day. They also had a nice indoor pool, table games (ping pong, pool table, air hockey...) Also there's plenty of restaurants within a reasonable walk. All of the staff that I encountered were pleasant and professional....
