Good value

Nice amenities and a decent location (unless you don't have a car) for getting into town and to the beach. The pool is a nice feature if you have kids or if the lake is too cold. The staff was a bit brusque at times but very helpful. Recommended unless you want to pay for luxury.

Great for awesome price

The bed was kind of hard and the walls were a little thin. Our neighbors were partiers and we could hear them late into the night. The breakfast was great and the staff was awesome and had GREAT recommendations. Cab ride to downtown was about $10.

Great for the price!

We Had A Good Time Staying Here. Its Minutes From Anywhere In TC. The Hotel Itself Is Very Clean And The Rooms Were Comfortable.The Staff Was Very Friendly And Helpful. The Only Issues We Had Were Our TV Going Out The Last Night There And The Kids In The Pool After The 18 And Older Time. I Wouldn't Mind Staying Here Again.

very high price for this room

Wife and myself were on a weekend getaway. Got this room here on Cheap Tickets. Stayed Sunday night at Country Inn. Asked wife if she wanted to stay another night. We then inquired about the price at other hotels in the areea. Horward Johnson is right across the street and the price was half of the $105.00 we paid at Country Inn. The differences were that Country had a microwave, inside doors to the room and an excellent breakfast. Howard Johnson had a room half again bigger, a full size king bed instead of a small queen size (at Country Inn). I would not recommend Country Inn, but would highly recommend HoJO to travelers.

Great Stay

We had a queen suite with fireplace & whirlpool. It was very clean except the dining chairs in our room had stains on them and there was a spider web in the corner of the whirlpool tub that we cleaned out, but other than that it was great! Loved the extra sink and counter in the room. Bathroom was updated. They had the best coffee I have ever had at a hotel and they even had my favorite caramel creamer! At check in they had fresh cookies too :). I would definitely stay here again. We did not use the pool or eat breakfast except for a bagel. There is even a shuttle that comes to and from the Turtle casino to the hotel. A really short drive to downtown.
