Recent guest reviews

Hotel smelled like smoke and mold. Bed was hard and sheets had cigarette burns. Dirty entry way. Never stay in a Heard Johnson hotel again

Non smoking rooms seem to be commingled with the smoking rooms so that when the smoker lights up next door or across the hall everyone gets to experience the stench. Otherwise nice property convenient to freeway, and with friendly desk staff. Delayed maintenance included broken lock on external door to stairwell, a security issue. Standard for "breakfast included" for this and other 2 star brands now seems to be "all carbs, no protein" :-(

Room was not ready at 3pm. After I long ride we had to kill time before check in. Pool is a kiddie pool at best, very disappointing. This is not a $110/night room. During the week for $55 is inline.

Convenient, nicely appointed, clean, quiet and may for a very nice stay.

Very nice, clean friendly staff. The rate was excellent.

The room was not very clean, breakfast was very cheap. Bed was comfortable. Close to on and off highway so it was easy to get to.

It was a nice clean room. The only problems were that the bathtub stopper leaked the bath water out and the cable and internet were down the whole time we were there. It was worth the money and the staff was very nice and helpful.

It was a pretty good hotel option for the money. Staff that was there at checkin was unprofessional, but the other staff members are good.

Friendly staff, great location near interstate and restaurants. Only thing is I found pretzels on bathroom floor. The rest of room was clean and up to date. Would stay there again.

Overall, not a horrible stay. Phone in room not working however staff apologized. Upon check-in, front desk employee was inappropriately dressed, wore thuggish attire and when asked for receipt, stated printer didn't work. When checking out, other front desk employee stated does not allow and did not say anything when I walked out i.e. "have a good day" or "thank you". Lastly, housekeeping staff very loud in morning in halls and got woken up. Actual stay was worth price but staff needs serious brushing up.

Comfortable beds, good room. Would most likely stay again.

Very impressed so much we will use this hotel again in our travels from Florida & back again. Room very clean with a refrigerator & microwave.The staff here is very friendly & helpful. They also have a complimentary breakfast that begins at 5:30AM with muffins,danish, toast , juices, coffee & hot chocolate with cereal & oatmeal. You should not be disappointed~we weren't.

Stafff was helpful. Room was clean. Pool was nice but small. I would stay again.

Close to Interstate and food opportunities, it was clean, comfortable, and inexpensive--no glaring problems.

I just had the most wonderful experience. I booked a room online, sight unseen, as I had driven from Buffalo NY to Daytona Florida, to bring my 92 year old father up north to visit for a month. I needed economy, but clean and comfortable. I was blown away by how nice the room was! It was everything I could have wanted. The room was immaculate (every part of it, including the bathroom), the beds were very comfortable (and historically, I have never been able to sleep on a motel bed. Always too "hard"). The tv was great, the staff were all delightful and helpful (I asked if there could possibly be a Long John Silvers in town, and the night clerk said that indeed there was, and proceeded to give me directions for getting there), and even the continental breakfast was great! I loved it, and so did my father!! I highly recommend it, and will stay there again without a moments hesitation.

On a week long road trip this was one of the cleanest we stayed in

very comfortable & reasonably priced. dining choices within easy walking distance

The staff is friendly, room was very clean. The breakfast was fine. Its got a musty smell but ive stayed there about three times and I will continue to stay there.

Two rooms. Quiet and clean. Was surprised for the price. Would definitely stay here again. Would recommend to friends for the value.

This room was fine. We stayed to break up a 12 hour road trip home. The room was clean and the breakfast although not glamorous was suitable to get us on our way the next morning. Would stay here again vs. paying a higher price at the other hotels nearby.
