This place was awesome, checking in was so easy and there was literally not one bad thing about it, it had everything we needed for a weekend stay.

You can hear all the Building noises.

The woman at the front desk was extremely pleasant and helpful. Beds were comfy and the shower was good. Plenty of room for 3 people in a room with 2 beds, could have easily been 4 of us.

The staff was very nice, everything was great except the last day we stayed they forgot to clean our room. We had no trash picked up or clean towels or tp. They did fix it, but we just got overlooked. Great stay, would definitely recommend.

Location was nice. Stairs are not. We felt like we could falk very easily.

The room actually looked like the picture.

spacious clean room very disappointing (Covid) "breakfast"

Visiting for a wedding... room wasn't ready at 3 like we hoped for and we were rushing to get ready. Staff said they were " gonna dig us a room up" which is exactly what they did. While my room appeared to have been cleaned, my sister went thru 3 rooms until she got a cleaned one. Guy at the front desk apologized saying they rushed to get us our rooms. Well, WET URINE on a bed is unacceptable. I would never stay at another Howard Johnson property and we searched other hotels in the area but no vacancy. We had no choice but to stay.

Nice

Budget accommodations. A little bit worn. Very friendly front desk staff! No daily cleaning or towel service for multi-night stays (might be a temporary COVID thing). Bed was pretty comfortable. The prices at nearby comparable hotels are outrageous, so this is a good bet for someone on a budget who doesn't need a lot of extras.

Just how friendly everyone was with directions and what was happening in town.

Its a tale of 2 times.. the bathrooms seem new and the rest of the room is from the 70's but i feel the price is fair and reflects the value

I enjoyed the in room hottub . The price was incredible

Nice, clean, location is great, a good value for your money.

According to desk clerk, No tub in any room. Carpets were soiled/dirty.. Exterior stairs are hazardous. Design on two of the stairways is too steap for childern and older cusomers. The one stairway that is designed with gentler slope has broken tiles at the top landing / trip hazard. My wife and I are seasoned travelers and felt we were gouged at a price of $286.00 for the night stay. The place is a overpriced even if there was shortage of other properties available at the time. I would Not recommend this property to anyone and I am very unhappy with The Orbitz review on this property. On a scale of 1 to 10 this one gets a generous 1!
