Thank for your feedback.

The room was clean. The building needs work. The toilet seat was broken on one side. The door to the bathroom would not close all the way. The outside door had a gap at the bottom and side as you could see light coming in. The key card lock worked 50% of the time. Also had to call the front desk to get the tv cable turned on. Would not stay again or recommend to anyone.

Hotel could use some renovations.

Pros: Free breakfast, Close restaurants
Cons: Noisy, Poor breakfast
The trash cans were all overflowing. The description says newly renovated...where?

I did feel welcome at this hotel, but would not stay again.

Pros: Close restaurants, Free Internet, Quiet, some sweet staff
Cons: Poor breakfast
Most of the staff were friendly, one in particular, was exceptional. And they did accommodate me by switching me to a different room when I requested that. But bot rooms were not very well cleaned - the shower in the first room had several of someone else's hair stuck to the shower walls. The 2nd room had previous guests urine all around the base of the toilet. And the carpets in both rooms felt so dirty that I was not comfortable walking in bare feet. On day 3 of my 7 night stay, the "continental breakfast" ran out of English muffins, so the only options for 3 days were pre-packaged danish or white bread. I guess it was supposed to be a bargain price, but next time it will be worth paying more for someplace else. I feel kind of bad saying such negative things, because some of the staff were so sweet, but I wouldn't go back.

For price and location this hotel could not be better.

Pros: Free breakfast, Close restaurants, Free Internet, manager and staff were very helpful and nice.
Cons: toilet paper problem as mentioned above.
The sink area was dirty and not cleaned until I cleaned it myself. Also, the toilet paper was fixed on the wall next to the toilet so that you could not access it -- because you were sitting on top of it.

such a disappointment

This review would have been completely different if this hotel was not advertised as newly renovated. I wouldn't have chosen it. I opted for the howard johnson because I think of that as a decent hotel and the price was right, especially when I saw that it was newly renovated. But when I got to the room(after checking in with an INCREDIBLY friendly and helpful front desk clerk...she was the best part about this hotel) it was old and an ashtray. The worst part was that I paid for two rooms as part of our vacation and they were both the same. I later found out that the hotel is not newly renovated but instead in the process of being renovated, there is a BIG difference. And none of the newly renovated rooms were available. We turned in our keys and went to the ramada up the road(at a loss of the cost of howard johnson that i paid for because the manager refused to refund our money for either night) But on a positive note...although more expensive, the ramada was pretty nice.
