travel

This place was a dump, the smoke alarm was missing, the light in the bathroom was missing a cover, the shower was not in proper working order, my other room was so filthy that my other travelers had to be relocated. How this place remains as a Howard Johnson is beyond me.

Basic accomodations

Just a room

The room was clean, but it was gaps around the door. Scared some was going to crawl in. The hotel was located around a lot of fast food place. So that's good for those who want something quick. Also, the pool close too early.

The hotel from the Twilight Zone

The hotel room was from the twilight zone. I am most certain of it. The first room we got, the hot water didn't work in the shower, the tv, microwave, and lamp quit working on us. The bathroom light blinks like 10 times before it finally comes on. We had to exchange that room out and get another room. The other room was cleaner and everything worked pretty good, but they need to work on the electrical wiring in that place. The light in that bathroom also took like 10 times before it came on. The sinks have cracks in them. Some banged on our door for like 15 mins at 3:15 in the morning..so sleeping was not easy. I was too scared to see who it was at that hour. They need to fix a few things.

the good, the bad,, and ugly

I am sorry to say it wasn't the Howard Johnson of the past which had great rooms that was in very good conditions. I would rate this room on a 2 scale. the repair work in the bath room was poor, the ceiling could have been repair in a more professional way. the towels and bed liens was in poor conditions.
