Two stars would be a stretch, a long stretch at that......

Upon check in late afternoon, I was informed that rooms were not cleaned yet and had to wait. Sent to the wrong room the first try, the second attempt I was given two keys and told to check both rooms. First room was ok, the second room had a bad odor about it so I went with the first one. Old, adequate best describes the room. Dingy describes the hotel appearance. The other guest around me were part of a out of town construction company and it was a Saturday night hoe down in the parking lot when the bars closed. Yee Haw. Needless to say I won't return. And all this for $98.00, Yee Haw!

Good Location...Few things not working as promised

Location is great. Right behind a gas station and a good mexican restaurant. Hotel showed up among the ones with kitchnette. It was not working. No Utensils. First morning, we did not have hot water.... Complained and somehow got it fixed by end of first day - both hot water for bath and kitchen stove. I feel it has to be maintained better. Did not expect this from Howard Johnson.

We were quite satisfied w/ the accomodations for the value. The room was just a little tight, but satisfactory as we were very busy and was only in room for sleep time. Adequate plugs for electronics, clean. Would really have enjoyed the kitchenette had we been staying longer. Will definitely use HJ again in the future.

much needed getaway

When we arrived the staff was very nice. We checked in the first room only to find NO bathroom. Full of work supplies and a wreck. The staff quickly put us in another room only to find the bed sheets had not been changed and the toilet had been used. The kitchenette was a mess, no phone or tv. The third room was about as good as it was going to get. Still needed cleaning and had a bad smell. The neighbors DO NOT know the meaning of quite. Tried to call the front desk and no answer. No security either, although they have a sign for a number to call. Will not go back until things are changed.

Family visit

Staff was friendly and had our room ready even @ 3 am because our flight was delayed. The room was OK, except for fixtures in the bathroom that needed replaced (tub/shower faucet that was difficult to operate and a toilet tank that began slowly leaking while we were there). The clock radio was broken. The beds were not full queen sized, but were comfortable. The pool needed better maintenance and was slightly cloudy and had a swampy smell.

Worst hotel ever stayed at.

they double booked the room that we were in and issued a key to complete strangers who walked in as I was changing. The room smelled very bad, bed bugs bit me through the night. breakfast consisted of stale bagels, milk and bruised apples. We were woken up by security banging on our door and demanded to know when we were checking out and were told that they needed the room....it was 10:00. (check out time was 12:00). the hotel lloks like it is used to house drug addicts and homeless. It did not feel very safe. the only reason I stayed here was because I had military training that weekend and all the other hotels were sold out. Do not stay here!!!

Got my money's worth...

Have you ever heard of "to good to be true"? That's how I feel about this hotel. I got exactly what I paid for. It wasn't bad, but it wasn't great. The breakfast was a joke, but everything else was okay. If you're on a budget, it's a good deal.
