The staff was rude. The room was not clean. There was no free breakfast as advertised. I had to go to the office twice to get clean towels because there was 4 of us and they only left 2 clean ones. And ran out of toilet paper. We was supposed to stay til Sunday morning but we left a day early and when I went to tell them he was checking out early the man in the office got rude and said I don’t care you’re still paying for the night. I will never stay there again or any Howard Johnson’s and I will tell everyone I know about it to.

We enjoyed our stay here. The room was clean. The only problem we had was on our last night we didnt get any clean washclothes or coffee cups but that was workable problem. We were too tired to go to the office so we worked around it. But everyone was very nice and I would stay here again.

I liked the fact that the property is located at a walking distance from tourist locations. I was disappointed with the cleanliness. When we checked in, the sheets on the bed were clearly not new. They had wrinkles on them. The floor was sticky. We could not connect to WiFi throughout our stay, across three different devices. The lady at the reception showed concerned, but the issue was never resolved. There were also small flying insects in the room. I killed one by the sink. Interestingly enough, we had room service twice after that, but the dead insect was not removed! So I guess the room service only picked up the trash and did nothing else. The sheets were also never changed!
