Family Getaway

When I showed up I was disappointed in what I saw. I paid $122 for a glorified Motel 6. When I went on line to print out the directions I saw that the Hampton was offering $101 for a night. That is a 4 star hotel. I told the person I went through I needed a room that would sleep 5 and I was told that it does sleep five. It doesn't, my son had to sleep on the floor. I missed booking a better hotel for cheaper at the Holiday Inn Express which had the capabilities of sleeping 5 people for a more expensive motel that is similar to Motel 6.

its an older HoJo

Not bad for an older Howard Johnson's. Rooms have some miles on them, its got a decent pool and hot tub and its close to several restaurants and fast food joints. A little on the pricey side for the condition of the place, but it worked ok. Breakfast . . . go out and eat.

overall condition

Employees were fine, cheerful, nice, and accomodating. The rooms and the hotel itself need some serious maintenance. From the (iron) burn marks in the room carpet to the general and overall rode hard and put away wet look (and feel) of the hotel. Note that this Hotel is populated by a sizeable population of government assisted tenants. Add to that the fact that the "breakfast" was at best weak, and you get a stay that was not worth the money spent

nice

the hotel's location was good to where I was going. Plenty of stores and restaurants near by. Also close to the highway. The room was a bit small. The pool was nice. The morning breakfast was not great at all. I suggest you go to McDonalds and get something.

not for sleeping!

The beds were way to noisy. They creaked really loudly whenever you rolled over and would wake your partner when you tried to get up. they were hard as a board with a noisy plastic mattress cover and the pillows were over sized foam blocks. The front window had no screen and was so close to the front door that anyone could reach in and open the door from outside. the place looks like a dump from the outside, but the rooms were pretty clean and the lady at the front desk was nice and well meaning. It had a large flat screen TV with lousy reception and a washed out look that couldn't be corrected. the place was conveniently located for our needs, but if a good nights sleep is your plan, you'll have to ignore the noises coming from the shower area and the box spring.

“Never stay here again, BED BUGS”

We checked-in, staff was friendly and helpful. Our room was ok except for the bed bugs in between the sheets and the cigarette burns. ( this was a "No Smoking Room") The bed frame was made with 2x4‘s with 1x4 slats, also had bed bugs. Very little hot water and it would change to cold often, also extremely low water pressure and showerhead. Continental breakfast was not much; bread, milk, coffee, juice, and cereal. We only staid 4 nights after that my wife and I had about 35 to 40 bed bug bites on us. We will never stay at this hotel again and I would not recommend this hotel to anyone.

A little worse than expected.

At check-in, staff was friendly. Got to room, when I moved the top blanket and looked at the white bed cover, I saw a few hairs on it. It was obviously not changed since the last time. Continental breakfast next morning was a joke, no fruit, no coffee. Just some bread, milk, juice, and cereal. I ended up eating somewhere else. Paid about $55 per night for 2 nights. It wasn't a bargain.

Hotel lived up to it's 2 star rating, a little seedy with questionable people staying there. A lot of them lived there. Maid service was non exsistence. (they did not clean the room) When I called to ask when my room was going to be cleaned they said the maids had alreadly gone home!

Desperate need for update

The only good things to say are the carpet and flat screen tv were fine. The room had a terrible smell for non smoking (it was the the bed spread), the door wouldn't open without pounding on it, and very little water pressure. It was decorate at least 30 years ago.
