This hotel shows signs of aging but is kept clean. The staff is friendly and cooperative. The free breakfast compares to any mid-class hotel. The location is good and the rooms are quiet. The hallways could improve with better lighting.

Reviewed 30 October 2016 via mobile

We stayed at Howard Johnson hotel/motels as a kid. They were long, 2-story affairs with outside entrances. As an adult, I avoided them, thinking of the rather cheap motels of my childhood. Now I am 54, and this Howard Johnson was so positively reviewed here on TA, I just had to try it out. Thank God I did. You see,...

Our room was beautiful and comfortable. The staff was helpful and very friendly throughout our 6 days. The breakfast had the best scrambled eggs along with delicious other options. We were never at the hotel between 6 and 8 but would have LOVED to be there for the free wine, beer and POPCORN

Very nice property! Pleasant evening reception from 6 to 8 PM with soft drinks, beer and wine, plus tasty popcorn. Nice breakfast in the morning. D'Ann at the front desk was delightful!

The hotel is everything you need for a couple of nights. The bed was not the best I have had but not the worst either. The welcome and staff in general were fantastic! We did not eat there, but the breakfast looked fine. They give guests popcorn and beer on an evening which is nice and social

Haven't stayed in a HoJo in years but ratings and rates attracted our interest. Outstanding staff, facility and cleanliness. Room updated and very clean. Bathroom clean as well. Large, well appointed breakfast area. Smiling staff obviously like jobs and are proud of continuing award winning hotel. Phone mapping software will easily route you around nearby major road project and it's...

I've stayed at this hotel a number of times over the years. Their rooms are spacious and always very clean. The front desk staff are always extremely helpful and accommodating. The reception with beer & wine every evening is also a nice touch. The breakfast room is plenty big and the pool area is nice. It's also located very close...
