A large percentage of reviews revealed guests who were overall disappointed with the hotel. The hotel permitted pets in the pool, which turned off some of the guests.
The old, outdated style of the Howard Johnson also didn't impress. The hotel had recently remodeled its lobby, but many guests felt that the guest rooms were old, small and run down.
Cleanliness was also a concern and there were complaints of soiled carpets, dirty sheets, un-emptied ashtrays and dirty mugs in the rooms. The stench of smoke was also detected in some areas throughout the hotel. A few guests felt that the hotel was overall poorly kept and wouldn't recommend this hotel for longer than a night's stay.
