Excellent place to crash for one night. The room was very clean and non-smoking. The bed was very comfortable and the set up of the room is very modern. Also great customer service. They made me feel at home. The room is was way nicer that it looks in the pictures. I highly recommend this place.

I turned the air on then found a dehumidifier, which immediately set off my alarms. The unit was turned on but the bucket was full so it was not removing moisture from the air. After I...

We've stayed at this Howard Johnson 4 times and we have been happy with the place. The front desk people are so friendly and nice. They always ask if there is something they can do for us or if we are comfortable.
