Hotel was clean and rooms were nice. Bed was too hard and very uncomfortable, did not get much sleep. Continental breakfast was not very big and choices of what to have were only waffles or cereal. The breakfast room was very small too and we ended up eating out which cost a lot for us!Toilet flushing power was too weak and waste did not go down, we felt very bad about having to leave without being able to flush properly! All in all I would not rate the hotel bad it just needs to upgrade a few things to make the stay comfortable!

There was a mouse that ran through our room and multiple rooms on our floor. I will never stay there again.

I understand we are still experiencing pandemic so no breakfast is understandable. However only 2 bath towels, on 1 wash cloth and 1 hand towel for 2 people. No service our entire stay. I don’t see how they still maintain the Howard Johnson brand, cigarette burns on the tub, bathroom door splitting and would not close, crusty shower head, moldy shower curtain and dried caulking around the tub. This hotel needs a great deal of TLC!!

I don’t know what pictures they are posting on their website when you book this room, but they were def not for this hotel. The rook was dated and in green. The lampshades were crooked and the tv was so blurry. There was black hair in our bathtub, I had to clean out before my kids could take a bath. The room below us was smoking so if we went on the balcony or opened our door to outside all we smelled was smoke. Then later they decided to smoke marijuana and it came up through the fan in our room we had to put a blanket over it to keep the smell out. The only redeeming qualities are it was close to the beach and the girl at check in was nice.
