My family and I stayed 2 nights in the Howard Johnson. Staff was excellent, however the hotel is pretty sad. I should have read the comments on here before booking! Just like everyone has stated: the rooms are outdated. The beds were tiny (for queen sized), the shower head was broke and water sprayed everywhere, television was so fuzzy that...

This hotel is very outdated. Things just seemed very old. The bed wasn't comfy and the air was spotty. :(

Booked a block of rooms for a group. Sadly, I had two rooms with showers that didn't work. Upon checkout they didn't have my proper receipts, then upon return after checking my credit card statement I realized I was charged for extra rooms. Rooms were outdated.

Room was clean and bed was comfortable. Had to move from my first room due to noisy AC fan. TV cable reception was "snowy" on many channels (throughout the hotel) and Wi-Fi was only adequate. Breakfast was marginal and I ate elsewhere.

Like so many ordinary motels along Interstate Highways these days, this motel has had many names over the years - now HoJo. Clean, but worn, it was OK for a night and worth no more than $65/nt. HoJo is next to many other motel brands at this intersection, so shop them all for price. Friendly staff, but just OK breakfast....
