Great for the price

I was pleasantly surprised at what I got for my money. The room was very clean, maybe recently remodeled with a fairly new TV. This motel is definitely worth a stay. I would stay there again.

Clean, comfortable, and friendly service.

What more can I say? From check in, to cleaning services, to check out, everyone was very friendly and helpful. The hotel was very clean and even being late sleepers we got maid service every day without having to request them to come back. The pool was clean and the area around it was well maintained. The room was much more than we were expecting. Our king sized bed was large and very comfortable. There was a large mini fridge, microwave, safe and plenty of tables and chairs. The flat screen T.V. was very nice and they offered a lot of channels. The bathroom was great, plenty of soap, the towels were clean and soft. Howard Johnson’s will be our go to hotel when we stay in Bangor.

If you are a Stephen King fan, you must check out SK Tours. Our tour guide Stu knows so much about Bangor, Bangor being Derry and all things Stephen King.

Upgraded Key Cards

While this hotel is as old as me, they've upgraded the facility: new reception area and door pass key with tap to open. No swiping of the card thru a slot, just pass the card near the room lock, pool door, entrance door.

ok, and ...

First room I was assigned hadn't been cleaned or beds made, had to go back to the office to request another room. Had to go to the desk multiple times to get my card reactivated, not a huge deal, just an annoyance when I'm hauling all my stuff to the second floor then can't get in my room. Hallways reeked of smoke smell, my room was fine just didn't like the smell getting there.

Usually a nice place

I'm usually pleased with this hotel with a good location right off the highway, cheap price, cleanliness, and a nice stay. It's not the ritz, but I don't feel like spending top dollar. However, this past stay wasn't that great. They were undergoing renovations to the rooms but I still felt like the bathroom could have used a better cleaning. And upon entering the room, I felt like I was in a freezer! Luckily the heater was easy and fast the heat the room up, but come on, it's winter - you need to heat the place! Hopefully the heat issue was due to the construction and hotel upgrades going on. I'll for sure give the place another go because it is the first time I'm disappointed with it.

Not what I expected

To start the reservation that I made in plenty of time was not met by the facility. I asked for a queen bed smoking room and rcvd a small full bed and non-smoking room. The receptionist stated, she was not given that information. One chair and a table barely able to hold a single cup. The receptionist on Friday night was rude and more concerned with her broken chair than helping customers (me and others I witnessed). The sink and bath have drain problems, by the time a took a brief shower the water was almost to my knees. Overall, this experience was a flop and I would NOT recommend other travelers to stay there.
