"Nice hotel, very affordable."
The hotel staff was helpful. The lady at the front only gave us instructions on where to find our room, a bit confusing but we found it. The hallways smelled like cigarette, they really need to do something about that. There was a sign "under maintenance" in one of the hallways, looks like part of the wall paper was detaching, nothing big doh. My room […] had a small refrigerator; a microwave; a coffee maker with some coffee packets,sugar,cups,etc. NO CREAM or MILK doh!; an old tv with good channels to watch; a single person sofa with leg rest; a nice king bed with clean sheets and pillows; an ac/heater that smelled funny when I turned the heater on; a clean bathroom with a hand and face soap,shampoo,conditioner and some other stuff, clean towels,hot and cold water from the shower; an iron for your clothes. They had ice maker machines on the hallways that you can use and some snack machines. The pool water was at room temperature, not too warm not too cold. They had a restaurant inside the hotel, I recommend the burgers and the hot wings. Can't complain for the price of the room, I would say it was a pleasing experience.

"hotel & experience"
Hotel rooms were somewhat clean, plugs for outlets were not all working. Not enough toilet paper. Pool area was freezing, and there were never enough towels. Halls smelled and were a mess, from some kind of leakage I think. It is an okay place if you are going to be out all day, and not care about using the facilities. Could not find the place, the […] big sign out front was never on. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Enjoyed our Stay"
We were a little worried when I read some of the other reviews, but we enjoyed our stay. The staff were very friendly, the room was clean and comfortable. The restaurant in the motel was wonderful. Our food was delicious. Our meal that night was excellent, and we went back the next morning for breakfast, which was equally as good. We also thought the […] price was reasonable.

"“Great food, friendly, helpful staff, rooms OK"
This is a smoker-friendly hotel which we found on the smokers-united website, so it was our number one choice for our visit to the Mount Pocono area; one of only two such hotels in Bartonsville, PA. Three weekend nights for only $242.89!! The lobby is beautiful; the staff was very helpful and accommodating. The Serengeti Bar and Grill restaurant dining […] and room service menus provide a wide array of meal choices, and the food was excellent for breakfast, lunch, and dinner. Food prices were unbelievably reasonable (10% discount for hotel guests). Sure, our room (with fridge, microwave, coffee maker, hairdryer, free wi-fi service, cable TV, etc.) was not top of the line with some need for renovating, but we were very comfortable and very tolerant of minor usage damage. (By the way, there is a huge mall directly across the highway for any interested shoppers or diners.) We would definitely stay here again. Thanks, Hojo! Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Needs some TLC"
The areas outside of the room (hallways, etc) smelled terribly, although the room wasn't too bad. The room was clean and comfortable but there was obviously an attempt to hide odors through the use of carpet fresheners and deodorizers. At least that smell was more pleasant than the odor from the hallways! Although we didn't spend a lot of time in the […] room, most of the TV channels were kind of "fuzzy". Other channels were fine so not sure what the problem was. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
A good value. Could use some cosmetic upgrades, but overall I will plan to stay again.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Good place to stay."
The staff was very helpful and pleasant. Room was clean, with everything we needed. Nice amenities. Restaurant /lounge was okay, but just okay. Easy to get to, but difficult to get north on 611.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Goes above and beyond"
The hotel staff was extremely friendly and went above and beyond to make sure we had a great time.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"A FANTASTIC POCONO AREA HOTEL"
WONDERFUL AND RELAXINGGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Room very Damp"
We were first given a room on the first floor and soon realized that the room was very damp. We spoke to the front desk and they moved us to a room on the second floor which was much better. The staff was very helpful and moved us without complaining.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"WAS VERY SATISFIED"
WAS VERY SATISFIED WITH THE HOTEL AND THIER SERVICE , WOULD RECOMMEND TO FAMILY AND FRIENDS.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
The rooms could use new appliances but for the most part me and my family and a great stay at this hotel and would come again.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"should be downgraded to a motel"
Stayed at this filthy hotel sorry motel labor day weekend. The ceilings are extremely low. Rooms smell like cigarette smoke. Carpets I'm sure have never been changed and they are absolutely disgusting. Chairs are stained with God knows what. Bathroom filthy. Walls needs paint. Televisions are out dated. Mistresses are old, warn and disgusting. Unfortunately […] the best part of my stay was leaving. This is the Bates Motel of 2013 minus the crazy sico killing the guests. I will however say that the manager tried to be accommodating. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Average place to stay close to highway."
Room was a bit pricey but I guess that was more because of the holiday weekend. Had breakfast at the restaurant on site. Food was good and prices were very reasonable with an additional 10% if you had a room. AC worked well. Never made it to the pool so cannot comment on it. Direction from my TomTom sent us wrong direction for the last turn which the […] person at the desk said has been going on for some time. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
only that was to short. is a nice hotel we coming backGenuine Hotels.com guest review
Room smelled moldy!!!!!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"A place to sleep"
This was simply a place to stay. The room smelled of smoke, the desk/work area did not have adequate light. Beds were not that comfortable.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
We where there 2 days only!but it was okay, they didn't offer complimentary breakfast,coffee machine out of service, otherwise everything was excellent.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Clean and smelled good"
Check in was fast and easy. Room was clean and smelled clean too.Genuine Expedia guest review
The room was not clean!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
We were coming from another hotel that dropped one of our reservations and could not accommodate our entire party. We relocated to the Howard Johnson Inn Bartonsville. They were SO friendly and accommodating! The hotel manager checked us in and made us feel like we were valued guests, this was a much needed treatment after the previous hotel experience. […] The hotel manager was also considerate to give us a follow up call after our stay. I would recommend this hotel to anyone who wanted to visit the Poconos, PA area.

"You get what you pay for"
If you don't mind the smell if cigarette smoke, incense and body odor on the first floor the grime on the second floor shouldn't offend you. On the bright aside, no bed bugsGenuine Expedia guest review
"Nice hotel, just right for the price you pay"
Hotel experience was great no problem. The room was nice and spacious. Fridge and microwave was provided and it was great since I have a toddler (13months). We didn't have any problems. It's location is perfect. Close to shopping areas and to the waterpark camelbeach. No long waits for check in or check out. The pool area is nice and big.Genuine Expedia guest review
"What we wanted"
Bare bones room. Room was ok though bedding [cover] should be replaced. Bathroom=ok. Good water pressure and temperature. D.ted but clean. wifi acceptable. Not the Ritz for sure. $89 was too much for the overall quality.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"What a night..."
The pictures and the location of the hotel are misleading - the hotel is literally in ON the I-80... The NOISE from the busy interstate was so terrible, we hardly slept. The mattresses were extremely uncomfortable and pretty much killed our backs by the time we had to get up. Most lights in our room didn't work. The hotel does look like a run down motel […] - and once you enter the premises, you can smell it - sorry. The experience we got wasn't worth the rate we paid - a quoter, perhaps. No complimentary breakfast, no coffee in the lobby - wouldn't book with Howard Johnson Bartonsville again, wouldn't recommend it to a friend. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
Funny smell in room and in hotel. Bathroom little dirtyGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Don't Stay at this Hotel!"
This is a run down, dingy hotel. There is a musty smell throughout. The sheets and bedding did not seem clean, neither did the towels. I have traveled all over the world and this was probably the worst hotel ever. The only positive is that it is very conveniently located off of the highway and near most amenities.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Nasty, smelly, stinky Hotel!!!!!"
This hotel was a disaster. I room was dirty and very smelly. The bathroom was mold and had cracks on the ceiling. Also, the hallway smelled so bad. This hotel is in serious need of repairs and updating!Genuine Expedia guest review
"Not bad for the cost"
The room was clean and available for early check-in. There was no elevator (at least I was not told of one). Which meant carrying luggage up steps which was no easy task for a family of 5! The pool was nice and we had it to ourselves for over an hour. There was no free breakfast here but it was good for the price.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"One night stay for soccer"
The first floor is for smokers. Smoke rises so the second floor reaks of smoke. Had to leave AC on full blast to control the oder in the room. Toilets had brown rings inside. One of the beds in the room was broken. The box spring was cracked so the bed had a bend in the middle. The hotel allowed another family to bring dogs into their room even though […] they post signs No Pets. Members of my group had pet allergies. The first floor hallway carpet is stained and ripped with wholes cut out. Had no choice but to stay as other hotels were booked in the area. Next year will plan very early.

"hotel was only 6 minutes from the soccer tournamen"
I booked this hotel last minute for a soccer tournament for my son and I. I read that the hotel had sub-par cleanliness, and decided to give it a shot anyway. I will not choose this hotel again, though. The room had a terrible musty, moldy odor, and the carpet was filthy. The bathroom was clean enough for a one night stay. Had I booked this room for […] a weekend, I may have tried to move hotels. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

it was just ok hotel was overpriced for the actual quality of the room.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Lacking in every aspect"
This hotel was very low quality. The room looked like something that would be in a motel not a hotel. The room was dirty and had lingering smoke smell. It was over priced. I will never stay here again or a Howard Johnson if this one reflects the rest.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"great hotel for the price"
Overall a very clean and nice hotel, close to almost everything.Genuine Expedia guest review
The room was clean and smelled good but the entire hotel smelled like cigarette. It was awful! The carpet in the hallways needed replacing. There was mildew on the corner of the wall in my room. The blanket had cigarette burns. The lining of the bathtub was seperating from the tub. The restaurant was very expensive. $20-40+ a plate, I didn't eat there […] because I was scared it would be bad. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"3rd room was the charm!"
Checked in at 5:30, room not made up. 6:30 manager gives me another room, get to the room and I walk in on a couple in bed, luckily they were only eating pizza. 3rd room was clean & empty...what a long day. My room was discounted $25 for my hassle. Nice lounge & great bartender, thanks Cody!Genuine Hotels.com guest review

Stayed here for 1 night. Bed was pretty hard. Was uncomfortable and could not sleep. Room was clean. Hotel a little out of date But it was ok. Everything was fine except to the bed.
