Traditional Howard Johnson feel in a non smoking well renovated room. It had nice space with a table for two in addition to a work desk, 3 chairs total, with a fair king size bed. Non-smoking, but either they couldn't renovate the smell out or somebody cheated by smoking somewhere along the line. Not a bother for me but slightly detectable

Very satisfied with everything, check in, room cleanliness, and breakfast

Very conviently located to stores and restaurants. Very nice breakfast and friendly staff

Good size pool but unfortunately it rained all day. Continental breakfast was a bit above par for that type of amenity. Safe in the room was a nice touch.

Nice breakfast, good pool. Near to commerce. Good price

Staff very friendly and accommodating. Good breakfast area.

You get what you pay for. We didn't need much, just a place to sleep. It was clean, no bed bugs....we checked. And they gave us more towels upon request. It not luxury but we didn't need luxury.

Location was good for were I had to be. Rooms were clean, the hotel was quiet and the price was affordable. Only stayed one night so really can't give a lot of information but staffw as friendly and no issues.

Very nice clean place and conveniently located. Staff very friendly. I have been here a couple of times and it has always been a great experience

Very comfortable rooms and amenities. Pool a plus.

Well everything was ok. Pool was fine. only had a problem with room key. Almost every day had to get key to work. Going to customer service was a pain especially when your tired.

We enjoyed our stay, they were very accommodating and got us adjoining rooms with our daughter and grandchildren. For the price, a great deal.

It was a nice hotel but when I got into the room the toilet was dirty called office and the sent someone up there immediately to clean it the rest of the room was neat and clean also the heater was not working well. But overall it was a nice room and the staff was very attentive

The hotel was in a state of disarray, and some serious shotty workmanship..... The staff was friendly enough, I never wake up in time for a continental breakfast. I've stayed In much worse hotels, but never a worse hojos

Decent hotel for the price. Very good free breakfast for a budget hotel

Disappointed about bathroom and towel cleaniness. Toilet and floor were dirty. Smell only went away after I threw boiled water on it. We found female underwear under the bed.

undergoing renovations. First room had old stained sofa. Second room was better. Pillows way too small and soft.

While the hotel itself is very dated, it was clean and comfortable. Thank you!

Excellent large room for price. Housekeeping never disturbed me always provided towels and coffee. Staff was very helpful. Easy to find and a lot of reassurance and shopping close by.
