It’s a cold night and I rent a king bed here at this hotel. The room is okay for the price, but the heater didn’t even turn on. So it made this expierence a little uncomfortable. The room was very cold.

Bathroom door doesn't shut, holes in the walls, match burns on the sheets, tv and pictures all crooked. Would not recommend at all.

I wasn't expecting much from this kind of inexpensive lodging, but was pleasantly surprised. Check-in was easy - keep in mind that they require a security deposit ($100 cash or credit card hold). My first impression of the room was the nice smell and everything looked clean. Heater worked perfect and kept the room warm throughout the night. Water pressure in both, sink and shower, was great and the water was instantly warm. Motel provided all necessary toiletries, including conditioner, which is rare. All electric lights were in working condition. Bed and pillows were comfy and our sleep was very peaceful and quiet. No noise from outside and, luckily, no noisy neighbors. Morning breakfast was also pretty good for this kind of inn/motel. They provided a good variety of breakfast choices, including waffles, which we had to make ourselves. Blueberry waffles turned out very tasty. The only minor complaint was a luck of drinking water for breakfast. We needed to take pills at breakfast time and had to swallow them with juice instead of water. Other than that, no complaints at all!

I would never stay here again, not EVER recommend this place! Filthy, filthy, filthy had to move rooms 3 times, bed broke in night, breakfast stale and disgusting! light bulbs out, mildew smelling, only thing that did work was tv and AC after we moved. Asked to have room fully cleaned, came back all that was dun was trash emptied and tp added! Managers have still yet to call us back about a full refund! Over $300 to stay here and can't get a phone call back or they are conveniently never available when we call!! Horrible experience

Leak in bathroom ceiling. Had to be moved. Substandard, questionable guests. Unkempt. Doesn't anyone care. Thought howard Johnson was a solid old name.

The front desk staff was unfriendly and not welcoming. The door to the room wouldn't open. There was a dirty towel left from whoever stayed before my family came. The toilet wasn't cleaned, and the cable wasn't working. I would NOT recommend this hotel.

The hotel need renewed changed everything the room no cleaning no good

Nice place to stay, good price and location. Breakfast wasn't early enough had to leave for work. Biggest disappointment was not enough tv channels no variety not happy about not being able to watch tv

Office stay was great. Room okay, outside in disrepair.

I commute to work from out of town, the value was great, friendly an helpful staff. All the amenities I needed.

I can't beeeeeeeeerrrrrrrrrrrrrrrllllllerrrreaaaaave.

The room was okay for the money I was paying. I can't really expect too much for so cheap. But there was no fridge and no microwave. Kind of an inconvenience.

room is ok, free parking and microwave inroom, but the bed and bath towel are not clean.

It wasn't to bad of a visit i pretty much just stayed at the room and relaxed nothing special

It's was just fine, no complaints.... Just a relaxing easy going night

Stayed at the hotel for a long weekend for a friend's wedding. The area of Kent is not very nice and I mostly got sad looks when people asked where I was staying. The motel was a dump with a comfortable bed and good shower head- that's the most positivity I can offer. Based on the look of the room, I never went down to sample the continental breakfast. The pool/hot tub are a joke as they look like they are in major disrepair and surrounded by dirt, (looks like at some point there was sod in the past). Definitely would recommend staying elsewhere.

Very good. Only, just because we only take 1 queen, we are 2! Would have appreciated service for 2, not 1.

Enjoyed the spa and pool staff was friendly the breakfast was basic but was very clean

The room wasn't ready when I arrived (at 8:00 pm), it was 'basically' clean, the towels where "ok", the hotel needs paint and is by two very busy (thus loud) roads. This is a 2 start hotel and that is all that it is. You get what you pay for, a very cheap room. If cost is your main concern you will be happy here.

The door to the room needs to be maintained as it didn't close tight and you had to pull it away from the jam to engage the dead bolt. When we returned from dinner there were several law enforcement people there and a bunch of people milling around our room. Never did find out what happened, but it looked like a party in a room had been broken up.
