Tubs black, when I walked in I walked into a spider web in the room.no microwave,

It was a nice stay. The staff was friendly, as always. The rooms were clean, but the dull colors made it seem of course different from a place that you would pay more for. But the stay was nice. The walls were thin. We were speaking loudly over each other's voices and the people downstairs thought we were having a party. (which we weren't). But other than that during the night, it was pleasant. The staff was great, but the hotel itself could use a bit of a fixer upper. However, for the price it was a great stay.

Staff needs to change asap. Poor service. Problems with the door lock and they do nothing to fix it. We need to swipe the key about 10 times before we can open the door. Thank God it was just 2 nights.

This is a fine hotel for a short stay. I didn't go there to swim or get entertained. I just needed a comfortable, clean place for the night. It met all my expectations. Thank you Howard Johnson

I can understand being outdated and super basic, but it went way past that. The fitted sheet didn't fit the mattress and refused to stay on, the two lights next to the bed didn't work, the coffee pot was scary, the bathroom could have been cleaner, and there was a used bar of soap in the shower. It also smelled like a certain "herb" and was a non-smoking room.

We needed a room for the night due to an emergency. It was exactly what was needed- clean room and convenient location.

This was a great value for the money. The room was clean, comfortable, not funky smelling. I found it extremely irritating though that the front desk called me at exactly 11:05 to remind me checkout is at 11. I've never stayed in a hotel that called your room just because you're running 10 minutes late checking out.

Old and drippy faucets. Maids put the used towels back on towel rack from floor. I left clothes in the drawer. I called next morning. They could not be found. Check in was nice.

What you want in a motel. Decent stay for a night, looked clean.

Hotel was average. Although we booked a smoke-free room the room had an obvious smoke odor. The room was comfortable, clean, with working heat/ac. The bathroom was small.

Staff was friendly, room was clean and comfortable. Key to door would work once, then have to be rekeyed by the front desk. After the third time, it was determined that it wasn't the key, but rather the key reader on the door and if you wiggled the key long enough in the reader, it would read the code and unlock the door..

This hotel was okay for a two star hotel. Carpet felt dirty. We had a smoking room which really just smalled like ciggerettes。too noisy couldnt sleep because of the guests next door. Police had to come wyiet them down. Shouldve spent more for themoney

decent room, didn't like the breakfast had coffee all the time

While I was happy that the hotel was only 10-15 min away from where I wanted to go for seeing history, I was not impressed by the hotel's outward appearance. Also, the room I was given was supposed to be a non-smoking room & it smelled of stale smoke. Overall, it was a good experience since there were great restaurants nearby & the locations I wanted to go to where close by as well.

Thin walls - could hear people in other rooms. Room smelled, and blanket on the bed had cigarette burns.

The hotel is easy to find. Breakfast was less than average, not many choices, 1 kind of bagel, 3 kinds of not-good doughnuts, bread, juices, coffee. Staff was O.K. Room was average. Beds were comfortable and clean.

Nice place to stay. Central to lots of stuff in te area. Thanks for making a rough night go quit smoothly. Thank yo :)

Good value for the cost. Close to Philly. Several fast food and pizzerias in vicinity. Walmart and other big stores are close- by too. Breakfast can be improved :-(

The room had a window on the back looking into the parking lot, but it also had a window in front looking into the hallway which I thought was very odd. There was also as step up to walk into the room. The hallway must have been enclosed later I assume. The room was small but clean. The bathroom was small but it did have a decent size bathtub, but the bathroom floor was sticky when we arrived. Also be ware the walls were paper thin, if someone in the next room or room above was even having a simple conversation it was noticeable. The bed was very comfortable, but I think there is probably other stuff in the area that would be a better choice for the same price.

The room was good for what we needed: someplace inexpensive and close to where my sister lives. The staff was not very friendly. When we came in every evening they would just smile. The room was clean. Overall, for what we needed it was good.
