Howard Johnson Hotel

The hotel was old but the room was clean and comfortable. The front desk recommended where to eat and we were very happy with their recommendations. The pool area was neglected. The views from the back windows were pleasant.

Horrible

Way too much money for this place. The smell of mold in the room was so bad and you could see it on the pictures hanging on the walls. I had to program the tv myself to watch it, no air conditioning at all. Both of the beds had something all over them, dirt, lint, I don't know, I had to brush them off to sit down and they were hard, it was like sleeping on a table.The pool was really scary and not clean, after 2 showers I could still smell the nasty. When I tried to check out I stood there for 1/2 hr but nobody ever showed up so I just left.

Not what is posted online

They posted pictures of totally different room as an advertisement. The rooms were smelly. Looks like 'No smocking' sign was not really kept by the guest which they had to take care of. The pool and spa area was not clean. Towels and bedding was stained! They put only 2 towels for 4 people that stay in the room to share. Did bring extra after asking though. If you con't mind cheap staying, then OK.

Horrible !

Just needed a place to stay and this hotel was terrible ! Toothpaste and coffee stained walls, forgot my wake up call, breakfast started at 8 or whenever they felt like it, and we found a hypodermic needle on the floor! Staff was awful and rude. Really I couldn't have asked for worse. I won't be staying here again and advise you to avoid this place too.

Basic hotel, but good value

The hotel had basic amenities and friendly staff. It was chosen for it's affordable price in a pricey area during peak tourist time. Good location.

Fantastic Cheap Getway

We decided to go to the cape last minute . and we didn't want to pay a lot . We didn't plan on spending much time in out hotel . The Howard Johnson was perfect the staff was wry friendly and helpful .They made sure to give us a room with a view and put us next to the play ground for my son. We both had a great time . I would stay there again .

Disappointing room

The room was not clean. I found trash from a guest that was there before us. The was a chunk of something that could only be described as "poo" on the bathroom door and behind the door was not clean. There was no shampoo and the cups for the coffee make were dirty in side the plastic wrapper. When I talked to the staff they were nice enough but the dsge had been done. Very disappointing room

Convenient jumping off place

This a perfect place to stay for an early trip to the ferry. The room was clean and especially well lighted.
