    It was clean,no frills, but price was right. no view of river, just u- haul place.

  • Couple

    Nothing. This was a miserable experience

    Everything about this hotel was awful. The rooms (and we looked at 3 before settling on one) were filthy, with crumbs and dirt on the floors. Worst of all, all of the rooms had a bad smell, and reeked of cigarette smoke. During the night, we turned on the ventilation system to cool things down, and got a continuous stream of filthy air that smelled like cigarettes. My husband has asthma, and we had to check out after just one of our two booked nights since we were both miserable. It was clear to both of us that we were harming our health by staying in such a dirty and second-hand-smoke-filled hotel. We left the hotel with suitcases full of clothing that reeked of cigarette smoke. We were also alarmed by the electric wiring in the rooms. It seemed as if the hotel was trying to maximize the use of its outlets, to the point of creating a fire hazard. We are going to try to get to help us get a refund for the night we missed.

  • Single

    I requested a non-smoking room when I booked the reservation, but received a smoking room when I arrived at 1am. I was too tired to request a change, but rather disappointed that I would need to remind the staff of what my original booking had been. The noise level is very high from the parking lot. When people started leaving in the morning, I was able to hear and understand most conversations going on in the parking lot from my 2nd floor room, without the window open.

  • Older travelers

    the location it was close to a lot stuff we were planning to do.

    the hallways and are room smell like cigarette.

  • Family with children

    It was the worst place that I've ever stayed! We didn't even stay the 2nd night because it was so gross. The smell was terrible, and the room was dirty ,small, and hot!!!! It was very noisy all night!! I will never stay there again and I will be telling all of my friends and clients not to stay there either!

  • Family with children

    the beds were comfortable and it was in a good location, the room was clean

    they overcharged me for the room-then it took 45 minutes to check out because of that and I still am not positive that they billed me correctly. i have to wait till my credit card amount is posted to check that. The second time I went to talk to him the person was out front by the door smoking!!

  • Group of friends

    Very economic, clean with a great location.

  • Older travelers

    Reservation was correct, room clean

    Bldg worn out has been there a long time. Was at one time a road star inn. Would not have the res if I had known this. No hot water in A.M.. fix mechanicals, let me know when this is done

  • Family with children

    Very nice young man helped move us into a different room when the heater in our original room didn't work.

  • Older travelers

    Young Clerks partying with young customers at night. Maintenance not fixing problems that turned into big problems during the stay(water leaks). Noise not contained and clerks allowing it. Staff not friendly and unresponsive to needs. Will never stay at a Howard Jonsons ever again.

  • Couple

    Staff was very friendly and helpful.

    However the room could have been cleaner. The mattress could have been more comfortable and newer. The tv could have been newer.

  • Older travelers

    There was a used washcloth draped over the shower curtian. In all fairness it was hidden behind the curtian, But still

  • Older travelers

    the staff were very friendly and the in room coffee and tea. The building was quiet.

    I did not like the bed. For me it was to firm.

  • Couple

    Manager was very helpful in locating vehicle services when our truck had broken down. Breakfast was excellent.

  • Group of friends

    The staff all were very friendly and the hotel was clean.

    I did not like the fact that it was so hot outside and the old air conditioner was running but the room was still stuffy n warm. Maybe time to replace the old air conditioners.
