                  our request for top floor and extra towels were honored, no questions asked... *NOTE: *no hotel in hotel circle has honored that!* everyone was so friendly...

                  the deadbolt on the door was broken and there was a gap so the door didnt close correctly... it could use some updating... free breakfast was a little lame...

                  It was close to everything we wanted to visit, the price for the room was good and our stay was pleasent.

                  Needed more food places with in walking dist. From hotel 95% of the food places willing to deliver were Pizza and they wanted a $2.99-5.99 delivery charge with a $15.00 min. Order.

                  Location & value.

                  Room service,very bad smell of room,breakfast time & service & small room for many people. It was my first & willbe my last time in this hotel, no matter what!

                • Group of friends
                  4.2

                  It was more reasonable and close to the beach even though you had to drive.

                  The hotel could stand to be updated. The curtains were filthy and the water came out of the tub when you showered. The shower curtain was worthless. Had to call for clean towels.

                  Its location

                  The door did not close fully, so the noise from the fwy kept me up all nite!!!

                • Family with children
                  4.2

                  Only the location!

                  Stay in this, or any other HJ, if there is NO OTHER option. This room would have been overpriced at $30, let alone $134! The room was dirty, the property was dirty. The whole place gave us the creeps!

                • Group of friends
                  4.2

                  quiet

                  the air didnt work correctly. it got to a reading of 63 but wasnt cold as expected and was very HUMID. We asked for towels and never got them. they sent someone from the desk but no one ever came. There wernt any shower towels in the room when we arrived. when we finally went to the desk and got towels they gave us 2. They never said we will look into the problems. just said OK.

                  It was in a good central area...that's about it..

                  That hotel was the worst hotel my family has ever stayed in, that place needs some serious remodeling and up grades..I definitely do not suggest his hotel to anyone

                • Family with children
                  6.6

                  lost my Iphone4s in breakfast just in 10 mins

                  ****Worst excuse for a hotel****. I hated this hotel. I checked in the staff was polite. But once I entered the room I nearly passed out. Room smelled and carpet was filthy there was definately no room for anything other than basically people. No space for bags or suitcases at all. Wife neary began crying at the possibility of having to stay there. The room was so bad I had to leave this hotel and find a more sutible one. I am working on getting my refund for this disgusting place they call a hotel. What ever you do dont book this hotel it is the worst. It is basically only suitible for one night stands if that..... In and out!!!!!!

                  As you can read above I hated everything except the staff. She was very polite other than that. I will definately not recommend this hotel to anyone not even my worst enemy. Hj needs to look in to scraping this hotel and rebuilding a more luxary or at least more suitable hotel. When I hear howard johnson from here on out I will not accept and will move to next hotel before staying here ever again! Or any howard johnson hotel period!!!!!!

                  The hotel was absolutely disgusting. The rooms smelled like mould and there was actually fungus growing out of the carpets in our room. When we discussed this with the General Manager of the hotel I was told that I should have inspected the room and noticed the fungus and if I didn't like it to check out of the hotel. Absolutely the worst hotel I have ever stayed at. Not even a one star.
