The hotel room was clean, but could use some updating. The grounds were well kept and the pool looked nice. If they had a gym I would have liked it more.

Dear Valued Guest, Thank you for choosing to stay with us. The new look Howard Johnson has chosen is the "retro look". They went back to the orange and blue traditional colors. All the beds, bedding, wall colors, furniture is new. I'm sorry if it seemed "old". I'm glad you found the room to be clean. Have a Great Day

Reservation made on line for king bed , but at check in told we got 2 twin beds. Attendant was able to rectify the problem, but it took quite a while & her attitude was horrible.. like I had my nerve, even after showing her my reservation had king bed on it. Property is very old & run down looking & breakfast room was tiny.. no seats available

Dear Mr Goldberg, Thank you for letting us know about your stay with us. I am sorry that there were any issues at check in. When we are 100% occupancy, and need to make a room change, it can take a couple of more minutes, but it really only took maybe an extra 3 or 4 minutes to satisfy your request. Occasionally, things like this can occur when a room has to be placed out of order. If one guest does not want the "room change", often another is willing to take the different room. I'm sorry you felt the new "retro" look with the traditional Howard Johnson's colors looks "run down". The items inside of your room were new, including the beds, decor, and carpeting. Again, I apologize that check in seemed too long, or that you felt any staff had an "attitude". Have a Great Day, and please say thank you to your wife for her kind words to me.

Run down hotel.

Pros: Nothing, the continental breakfast was joke.
Cons: Tear it down and start over.
Location: On a busy road, in a seedy neighborhood.
Run down hotel, Not worth $125.00 a night. This is the kind of hotel you pay $50.00 a night.

Ok place to crash for one or two nights.

This place is perfect if you're just looking for a bed and a roof over your head. The hotel is old and not for those who have a half-dozen different devices that need to be plugged in. Also, the pool faces a major highway, so if you want to lounge poolside, you'll have constant traffic noise in the background. Room was very clean, but there were some shady folks around, so I wouldn't stay here if you have kids.
