HOTEL’S FAVOURITE REVIEW
Reviewed 4 January 2017 via mobile

We stayed here for a night and we had an excellent stay! The entire staff is wonderful! The wifi signal worked perfectly to our room even though our room was far from the office (room 529). I was able to connect with my laptop and it was a solid connection for 10 hours. I was able to complete some necessary...

You get what you pay for... We were looking for an inexpensive overnight stay hotel and it met that. The check-in process took 35 minutes!

Why is this a Howard Johnson? Isn't there some sort of minimum standards to be a 'branded' motel? Used coffee filter in the in-room coffee maker. Stains/holes on walls. Misc broken furnishing here and there. Multiple guests in office complaining room hasn't been cleaned/no towels. The key to making money from motels isn't to do as little housekeeping/turnover as possible....
