It was ok. not the best and not the worst. i was upset to know that the ice machine closes after a certain time.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Our room was clean. The exterior was filthy & the hotel is in serious need of a complete rehab. The general atmosphere of the hotel was unsettling . I would definitely NOT recommend this hotel. We were extremely disappointed.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Dont be nice in place where we sleep"
Dont comfort in bed and i am be pain back by bed. I dont recomended to my friends by it's hotel and i need that this hotel improve and remodeled more comfort and something... Lobby and service is weird.Genuine Expedia guest review
"I wouldn't recommend unless desparate"
The hotel is what you expect for the price, not a 3-, 4 or 5-star hotel. It's the quality of people they stay here. The locals is what makes it unpleasant and down right scary.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Not a good place"
Hotel is in pretty bad condition Carpets were patched and overall not very cleanGenuine Expedia guest review
The hotel was in POOR shape. There was a rear accessible porch that was filthy, had cigarette butts on the floor. The TV remote did not work. The digital clock did not work. Two of the lamps in the room did not work. The bathroom tub drain was plugged up and I had to unplug it. The hot faucet was cold and the cold was hot. The general maintenance was […] poor and the place SERIOUSLY needs a paint job. There were people hanging out in the parking lot blasting music at 4AM. It is in a poor area. We were NOT happy with our stay there. Hotels.com should refrain from having this place as a choice. I wouldn't go there again if were FREE! Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Host at the desk, rude and unprofessional"
Never again!!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Great motel for the price!"
For the price you can't beat it. It was comfortable, clean, we asked for towels and they sent it to our room immediately, our iron didn't work and they gave us a new one, and their breakfast wasn't bad.Genuine Expedia guest review
"the worst hotel stay i have ever had"
The room stunk of smoke. The doors had broken locks. It was very dirty.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Absolute Hindu dump, hard to find. GPS no help. Rude staff/ownership and extremely hard to understand.Genuine Expedia guest review
Just sucks everything !Genuine Hotels.com guest review
It's a (relatively) cheap hotel if you need access to Rutgers, New Brunswick or the Train Station. But better options are probably available. Pretty old construction by hotel standards. Locale is pretty dreary, although not unsafe. Would I stay here again? If the rates at other local hotels remain as high as they are, then probably yeah. Although I […] most certainly would look at all other options. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
There was cat hair all over the carpeting.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Walls broken dirty room no ice machine they had one and it was broken breakfast was the biggest joke of allGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Avoid at all costs!!!!!!"
This was the worst hotel I have ever stayed at, and if I knew the area any better I would not have stayed there. I recommend NO ONE ever stay here! The poor condition of the outside was only topped by the terrible condition of the iinside. The room was filthy, the refrigerator did not work, one of the lights didn't work, the bed was terrible, the TV […] was a joke, the alarm clock didn't work, the room only had two electical outlets, the bathroom was wired with an extension cord! When the room was finally cleaned (on the 3rd day!) I returned to find the door left open. I would expect this at an "hourly" hotel, not at one listed at Expedia. It was simply horrible. I will never stay at another Howard Johnson's again. Even the worst Motel 6 I have seen is 10 times better! Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
Hotel needs major renovation-room s are very old &shabby lookingGenuine Expedia guest review
"Stay somewhere else!"
Upon our arrival, the hotel appeared dilapidated and old. On this trip all we really needed was a clean place to sleep and a hot shower in the morning- not asking for much. I trusted the 2-1/2" star rating given by Expedia, as past experiences with hotels rated as such were not as bad as this experience. My first room they gave me had a big stain on […] the bed sheets when I pulled back the cover. The second room was better but still had that un-vacuumed feeling to it. The counter tops in the bathroom had not been wiped down with any kind of cleanser. I dropped something on the floor and had a look on the floor under the bed and it looked as if it hadn't seen a vacuum in a long time! The TV remote didn't work and neither did the free wifi! In the morning when I took my shower the tub didn't drain so the water just built up in the tub. I didn't want to even sample the free continental breakfast offered, I just wanted to leave. I usually do not write reviews as the hotels I book through Expedia have always been good and pretty much as described in the website. I would only give this hotel a half star rating and only because of it's location. It is in serious need of some renovation or even just a good cleaning would help!

"Would not stay here again"
Stayed here twice in one week when I had to take my children to wo different freshman orientation programs at Rutgers University. The location was great. The first stay was Ok. The room was clean and comfortable for a just a bed and shower. The second stay, two days later was very disappointing. The room was not well kept up and downright dirty. I can […] only think that the first time, I was on the second floor and the room had been renovated, while the second time, on the first floor the room was not renovated. The continental breakfast was a joke. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
I feel that they need to do renovations because the mattress was falling apart, the iron was off the wall and sitting on the table, the ironing board was nasty, the bath tub had mold in the corners, the outlets were worn were unsafe. I feel that they need to clean better because there were dirty tissues under the bed and the linen was dirty looking […] . Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
The guest service guy was slow in getting everyone checked in. He walked around absent minded like there was not anyone waiting for a room. He was chatting away on the phone waited at least 30 minutes before he finally gave me my room key. The room he gave us was not what was requested in my reservation and the remote in the room did not work the tv. […] Nice low price but I will not go here again Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Good for overnighters."
Hotel is old and could use a thorough cleaning and walls painted. Bed spreads have stains and burn holes. Mattresses and pillows were comfortable. We stay here because of price and only staying overnight most of the time. I would only recommend if a person is not looking for upscale lodging.Genuine Expedia guest review
Disgusting and woeful conditions! Spend the extra $ and go to a DECENT hotel!!!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"If you have to have a cheap place"
This hotel is obviously not taken care of or cleaned well, but for the price in the area is was adequate for an overnight stay on the way.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Place can definitely use a makeover...very cheap though so I guess you get what you pay forGenuine Hotels.com guest review
Hot water is a must!!!!! The water would not get warm. My only complaint. Everything else was fineGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Convenient Location off of RT. 1."
Easy and convenient location. Clean room. Good for a nights stay when passing by.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Employees block the drive up from guests parking to check in. Carpet, walls and sinks are filthy. Towels smell bad. The television doesn't work. Have fun!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
It could had been betterGenuine Hotels.com guest review
The pros are that is it on a busy highway that can get you around to just about any place you would need to go and the bed was kind of comfortable...if it weren't for the other factors of the hotel, I probably could have gotten a great night's sleep. Other than those pros, this hotel was awful. The people up front weren't very customer service oriented...they […] weren't mean but just didn't have their stuff together and wanted the transaction done and over with. We had some junkies walking around drinking out of a milk jug and of the many smells this place had, pot was very prominent. It looks run down and nothing, including the trash, is kept up. Inside of the room was another disaster...we had drawers missing from the dresser, old ramen noodle containers with what looked like genital hair under the sink area. Stains all over the place including chairs, bed spread, walls, and any other possible place. We wrapped the pillows in towels so our heads didn't have to touch it. The bed spread had cigarette burns. The light fixtures were smashed and being held together with some packing tape and the sink in the bathroom had burns all over it. The room stunk so terribly when we first walked in...we either got used to it or the air conditioning/heating system maybe flushed some of it out. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
Not good. not properly cleaned. wifi does not work.Genuine Expedia guest review
It has been a long time since I have stayed at a hotel this bad. The exterior of the hotel was a disaster. Dirty with garbage and torn rugs. The room wasnt much better with a horrible rug, stained ironing board, weird smell, and 25 year old TV and iron.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Claimed to have queen beds but were smaller than a full, called them"hotel queens". Broken TV, broken phone, broken in bathroom door. VERY disappointed. Service terrible; they wouldn't answer their phone for 15 minutes when trying to get a verification of our check-out for hotels.com. Hotels.com should not be doing business with them!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Wow worst hotel ever!"
I've stayed at over 70 hotels this year and I could not believe the condition of this hotel. The bathroom door fell off. The room smelled like a dead body had been marinating in it for days. If you can don't stay at this hotel. It should make Howard Johnson embarrassedGenuine Hotels.com guest review
Pretty low end. Room was in disrepair, flooring was coming up, drug paraphanalia was found in cabinet.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Not a safe place to stay"
Booked durring hurricane Sandy power outage. Last resort, only place that had a room. This motel is old, in disrepair, with incompetent staff and questionable occupants. It was loud, missing items (light bulbs, locking doors). I would recommend NOT booking this hotel, even under extreme situations.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"worst hotel ever, nasty, filthy!!!"
Dirty room, holes in wall, holes and blode on stains on sheet and pillows, chairs with holes and filth on them, should be closed by health department.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Waited 20 mins to check in because nobody was at the desk/ wasnt even at the hotel complex. Kids were running around and playing til 1:30 am. Coffee tasted good thoughGenuine Hotels.com guest review
The bed was comfortable, the owners were very friendly and responsive to my needs. There was no rubber stopper for the tub and when asked for one they didn't have one. Since I don't take showers it was important for me to cover the drain which I had to come up with my own idea after two baths. The price was comfortable for me, I think I would stay there […] again and next time bring my own rubber bath stopper. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
I usually don't write reviews, but I would not choose this hotel again and may not choose Howard Johnson in general again. At the very least I will not choose an Express. The place is not kept up and just feels dirty. The bath water smelled. I felt like I needed a bath to get clean from my bath. It's not worth the money. Look somewhere else.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
HOTEL IS OLD, ROOM CARPETS ARE OLD, AC MAKES LOUD NOISE. FRONT DESK PEOPLE DO NOT PICK UP THE PHONE AT NIGHT. BREAKFAST HAS NOTHING OTHER THAN 2 EMPTY BOTTLES OF JAM NO REFILLS THEY SAID. IT'S REALLY BAD TO SAY THAT THEY USE HOWARD JOHNSON NAME. WILL NEVER GO THERE EVEN BY MISTAKE. DO NOT GO NOT EVEN WORTH HALF THE MONEY WE PAID. VERY DISSOPOINTED HOTEL […] . COM NEED TO OMIT THIS HOTEL FROM THEIR LIST. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
The stay was interesting to say the least, i had a very odd encounter with a person working the desk. He was very rude and showed no really concern to assist me i was able to complete my trip and take care my plans. however, i must say this was not the best moment of my life, traveling wise.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
The place is rundown, could stay for more than 3 hours didn't even bother to get refund they need it to do better upkeep.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"difficult to find"
The motel was difficult to find even with my GPS. There were no restaurants close by, so heading out from the motel for food was an expedition in getting lost once again. The continental breakfast started a half hour later than advertised. However, the room was very clean and comfortable.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"From here to there"
Its not bad. A bed, a tv-no remote, easy access to pool. If you don't have a car it could be a hassle. But, for an easy stop to catch some sleep before hitting the road. I couldnt complain. Staff was nice.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
For the price and,location its a good place...Genuine Hotels.com guest review
The worst ever.So old, rusty bathroom, room not clean enough, front dest so rude ect.... stay away from that hotel.Howard johson needs to come and take that sign down for real.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Took a hour for two towels to be delivered to room. Walked out smelled like pit. Several parties on top floors. All you heard all night was foot steps and slamming doors. The breakfast sucks unless you like their so called orange juice tang. Seemed very sketchy at night. Not the place to stay. Worst hotel ever.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
THIS PLACE IS NOTHING BUT A CHEAP MOTEL.I OVER PAID TO STAY HERE ..THE ICE MACHINE WAS ALL THE WAY IN THE OFFICE THE SERVICE WAS TERRIBLE THEY NEVER ANSWER THE PHONE @ THE FRONT DESK. THIS IS A PLACE FOR STRIPPERS ONLY NO EXAGGERATION!!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
