Below ordinary.

Disappointing for a resort town. Breakfast was cold cereal and toast. No fruit, no yoghurt.

Not the worst

The hotel was definately nothing special, but with a 1 year old, it was safe without any hazards. The beds were comfortable and was easily pushed against the wall for the baby. Pool was clean and great location. The big tree was nice to wake up to outside. Room was clean but the bathtub had hair. :/

Disappointing bargain

The location to the main attractions was from walking distance. The hotel front looks really good but when you enter the room the ceiling was pealing from humidity. The bathroom was not inviting to taking a shower. The carpet and bed covers were new but everything else was old. Musty smell in the room. Was quiet for sleep. Plenty of parking. the beds were clean. The tour trains stop on the property & you can buy the tickets at the office.

Cheap and convenient.

The hotel is OLD, but very convenient location for walking. Bed and pillows were comfortable but the bathroom was old, dirty, horrible shower, occasional hot water, clogged drains.

It was horrible

The rooms had small roaches and the cereal at the breakfast bar had small bugs in it. I also had to cut my trip short due to being called back to work and the manager was "unavailable" [...] I will never stay at a Howard Johnson and would never recommend this one. It was a horrible experience.
