The shower curtain was filthy. No one took the time to go around the furniture with a vacuum, especially the beds. A pen cap and other dirt was very visible. If only they would take the time to do some basic cleaning, scrap the paint of light fixtures and do touch ups the room would have been much more appealing....

We decided to try Howard Johnson as we had a coupon and had never tried their motels before. The front desk lady was in the office and we had a hard time in gettting her to wait on us. She was super s-l-o-w and I mean slow. She acted as if she could care less if she waited on us....

If you need a nice, clean and friendly hotel to rest while traveling I80, this is it. Staff is very friendly and a clean hotel. Highly recommend this hotel. Very easy on/off and location offers many options for eating nearby.

“This hotel is on a major highway and the rooms in the front are noisy”
  • This is how the threadbare pillows looked with all their wrinkles when I walked in the room.
  • The beds looked like they had been slept in before I checked into the room
