bad security problems

checked in at 7ish out at 12:50am. sign outside hotel says they let us park our car for convience and are not responsible for breakins. hotel backs up to the projects. upon coming back from grocery store we noticed the door locking system was not secure. the screws were not screwed into anything. when we spoke with office person she said she could not get anyone to look at it till morning !!! and that she HOPED everything goes ok that night. seriously !! even their securuity man said is wasn't right, WE HAVE REALLY GREAT PICTURES OF THE LOCK! now they are charging my credit card for ANOTHER NIGHT.. even though they were paid through in full. trust me .... I expect a refund. and the extra charge best be removed. oh and when we asked SUE the office person about vandalism she informed us that yes they have had a lot but NO SHOOTINGS yet !!

Average & Affordable

Clean, affordable, nothing special, just needed a place to sleep for a few nights while in the area. Continental breakfast was lacking though, but again just a simple hotel.

No pride I guess

I understand that the HoJo was listed as a 2 star hotel but come on. From check in to check out I felt as if I were staying in an ancient motel on some deserted highway that rarely sees any business. For a hotel in College Park to have no pride in their presentation and service completely baffles me. Check in had a minor hang up but after the receptionist realized I already had a reservation, like I told her, things were cleared up. The 2 rooms I checked in to were essentially the same. One had a microfridge and one didn't. They both wreaked of nasty living, including cigarette smoke despite being a non-smoking room. The lights in the bathroom did not work at night in either room and I had to take a shower by the light of my cell phone flashlight!! The morning continental breakfast was pretty thin. Terrible coffee and bagels. A couple danishes were there but I was afraid to eat them! Check out was the standard uninterested "how was your stay" "thank you" "goodbye" I will definitely chose another hotel the next time I travel to CP.

Not what I expected from HoJo

My hometown HoJo is much nicer than this one. We had a corner room which was nice for lack of neighbor noise but the traffic noise was awful. The front desk staff was less than pleasant but housekeeping was friendly/helpful however understood very little English. The bed was comfortable enough and the cable selection was adequate. The bathroom was tiny but had the curved shower curtain rod so no annoying curtain cling! The iron and ironing board were lacking but at least there was one. Wish there was a fridge and in-room microwave as we stayed for a week. Parking was plentiful but the driveway was confusing and a challenge to navigate. Close to major roadways making city travel pretty easy. Close to gas and grocery store but limited restaurants.

Good for stay during college registration

The room was comfortable enough to accommodate 2 adults and 1 teenager. The microwave and refrigerator in the room was greatly appreciated to help hold down the food costs.

Gets the job done.

Our stay at the Howard Johnsons was fine. We were quite tired and the shower I took was wonderful. The only thing was a strange, horrid noise from the exhaust fan in the bathroom which had to be turned on if you wanted the light on.
