This Howard Johnson is a great deal for getaways. Great family place and a good adult spot. Great food and drinks. If any complaint is that kids take over the pool that I haven't tried and no whirlpool.

I feel I need to let you know that this hotel is absolutely disgusting. It smells of damp and smoke, the carpets are filthy. The fridge in our room had the most disgusting smell come out of it when you open the door. The owners\managers obviously know that the hotel smells because they have tried to camouflage that smell by...

I actually cried because I had no choice but to sleep here for 2 nights. It was even worse that I had to subject my...

We made the mistake of opening the fridge, mix rotten eggs with month old sweaty socks and you might be close to the whiff. Overall the hotel is run...

Charge to use the mini-safe? That's a first! Big bulky old TV! Come on guys, flatscreens are a dime a dozen now! Weak toilet flush. Apart from above, stay was by no means unpleasant. Would stay again as a matter of convenience.

On a recent hotel take over we were part of group event and first time at this hotel. What a wonderful surprise this dated hotel was. Clean and comfortable with all the amenities you expect and more.
