    This hotel, beeing part of the Howard Johnson chain had absolutely no plus value, we went for a budget accommodation and the hotel did not met our usual 100$ standard. outside trash was overflowing, the room smelled very bad, the pool was dirty. We cancelled our 3 night reservation after our check inn!

    Exceptional

    The price, the spacious room, free internet, great tv channels, free parking, and helpful friendly staff.

    Walking up four flights of stairs every night carrying my laptop and other paperwork. The elevator was located at the opposite end of where my room was located. Should have two elevators.

    Very good

    I liked that it had a refridgerator and microwave in the room. And it was very reasonably priced.

    The couch had stains on it so that was a little unappealing.

    Good

    Very clean room with a comfortable bed at a good price. Pleasant staff.

    The outlets by the nightstand didn't work. I was able to plug in on opposite side of room, but worried I might not hear the alarm while my device was charging. I'm just used to having it by my head. Also, when next room opened their door, it sounded at first like they were opening my door.

    Superb

    Mike really took care of every question we had about the local area to paying tolls on line. The room was just newly renovated and the beds were very comfortable. They offer a complimentary breakfast .Great value for money and easy access to free way .

    Everything met our basic needs.

    Very good

    Ac unit by door leaks all the water onto the carpet and the room smelled terrible from the moldy carpet. Had to use sanitizing spray to try and cover up the smell.

    The carpet had a big spot in the floor the corner of the carpet was mole. The phone did not work. I just really wanted my money back. The web site u go on to get the room is a joke they say u can cancel free an u can not get in touch with them an u call the hotel an they tell u, u can not cancel threw them. I never would have stayed in a place like that. Howard johnson is up scale not this one. They said they were in the middle of remodeling well they should lower their rates until they finish or close the doors. I was to a shame to bring friends to my room an i went for a graduation.

    Just the people at the front desk was nice. An the breakfast was ok

    Location was okay.

    WiFi didn't work properly. Sink was stopped up. Not enough towels- 2 bath, 1 hand, 1 wash per room. There was no covering for beds in one room only had blankets.

    Fabulous

    The beds and pillows were very comfortable.

    The cleaning staff didn't replace any items we used. Had to constantly go up and down two flights of stairs to front desk to ask for coffee, shampoo and cups! Smokers had to stand in the parking lot! There was no designated smoking areas. We left a day early and if I hadn't asked for a refund the clerk wasn't going to mention it! Hair dryer didn't work and the single cup coffeemaker leaked water out the sides giving you barely a half cup of coffee.
