"Don't book here"
Worst dump I've ever stayed in. I had fond memories of HoJo's from road trips as a kid and since I was just passing through on my way south I took price over my own better judgment. I'm not a germophobe or neat freak but this place offended even my lenient sensibilities. It smelled bad, the floor was warped, the side table had some sort of sticky spill on it, and the shower would not drain. I slept on top of a towel on top of the comforter and used a travel pillow I had with me. I cringed every time I touched the tv remote. And the "free breakfast" the next morning everything to be desired, including the worst sip of coffee I have ever put in my mouth. I begged the clerk at a coffee shop to rescue my tastebuds after racing there. The clerk at check-in was pleasant enough but he should have warned me off. And the women in the morning were more interested in their conversation than in helping me. Won't do it again.

"Disappointed when we saw it."
When we saw the sign pointing towards it, we saw this beautiful hotel straight ahead but when we lowered our gaze, it was the dumpy, dingy hotel in front of the beautiful hotel. It was old, and needs an upgrade on the outside for sure. When I called the hotel days earlier, they answer the phone "Welcome to the newly remodeled Howard Johnson's" but we saw no sign of any remodeling. It was disappointing. The bed was lumpy and squeaked when you sat down on it. The windows had gotten moisture inside the panes so were fogged up and never able to look out the one and the curtain was water stained. Some of the hotel staff were outside the back door talking and smoking also where alot of guests enter.

"Nothing fancy, but clean and comfortable."
The room was clean and looked nice, it was just a little dated and had a few very minor issues that could use attention. For instance, there was a receptacle that had a splitter plugged into the upper half because the lower one wouldn't hold a plug securely. It could be fixed in minutes by an electrician (I am one, so I know), but someone decided to use the splitter instead. The staff was friendly enough, the bed and pillows were clean and comfortable enough, especially if you like a somewhat firm mattress. There was a mini fridge in my room, which was nice to have. I found it a pleasant enough place to stay if you're not looking for luxury and just need a nice place to land at the end of the day. It was good for what I paid.

Although the room was somewhat small, it was clean and the night we stayed was quiet. I was a bit concerned because I have pet allergies and desk staff (not the most friendly) could not give us a pet free room. But had no problems. Would stay again for a quick nights sleep in route.

"Not fancy, but adequate and a good price."
I only needed a place to sleep at a low price, and this hotel provided it. The TVs weren't HDTVs which was a little surprising, but I didn't have much time for TV anyway. The beds were comfortable, and the price was right. The free breakfast was OK, with what you usually expect. There was nothing fancy about the room, but it was adequate.

"Keep in mind how much you pay for a hotel"
The hotel rate I got was a bargain. Unlike most people (who expect five-star accommodations for a one-star price), I have realistic expectations, and the hotel more than met them. When I arrived, the desk assistant was scrubbing the floors in an already clean area. I found that there would be an early-morning selection of a few carb items for me, an unexpected benefit. I simply want a clean bed to sleep in, a few electrical plugs, a means of showering in the morning, comfortable air climate control, and no bugs. I got all of that...and for a great price. There was a McDonald's across the parking lot, a good Chinese buffet nearby, a Perkin's just a couple of streets away, and easy access to gas at Casey's. I was at the airport in under twenty minutes despite it snowing. My only problem with the stay was the room was billed as "non-smoking" but definitely had been smoked in.

"Never Again"
I felt like I was living in a cave. Housekeeping did not care what condition the bed was in after it supposedly cleaned the room. The comforter to the bed was nasty with stains from who knows what so I asked housekeeping to change it. Touching the remote control to the TV put your life in danger due to its filth. The towels were like sand paper and the bedding was old. The staff was nice though and there were free USA Today newspapers. Don't expect the WSJ. This is definitely not the place.

I got sucked in to the 40% off but you don't know the hotel name until you hit send. It was cheap and I got 6 hours of sleep but I don't think i'll chance the "pay first learn about your room after" deal again. The advertised rate was like $31.00 and then they added like $10.00 for misc charges. I thought maybe it would be a deal because the expedia add listed the possible hotels.....La Quinta, etc etc. If it sounds to good to be true, be prepaired.

The bed linens were threadbare and wrinkled. TV was CRT. The continental breakfast was adequate if you arrived early. There was the odor of tobacco smoke in the hallway.

"A decent backup place when nothing else is availab"
When we first arrived, I was a bit intimidated by some of the seedy characters hanging outside, but we had no choice to stay because all other areas places were sold out and we did not want to drive further looking for a place. Once inside we found it acceptable and took the attitude that it was only for 1 night! The room was bare bone basic and we found the mattresses to be lumpy and uncomfortabel but everything else in the room was fine and clean. We were not aware of having a complimentary breakfast available which was fine and made up for our initial apprehension. Would i stay there again? Only if nothing else in the area is available!

"Non-smoking rooms smelled like smoke"
Only 10 rooms on one end of the hotel were smoking rooms, yet even the non-smoking rooms smelled of smoke. It seems the ventilation system needs a major overhaul or maybe furniture has been moved from smoking rooms to non-smoking rooms. Either way I tried two different rooms with the second room located farther away from the smoking rooms. But, both rooms smelled like cigarette smoke. The tile in the bathroom was looks and wobbling and the grout was missing in several areas.

The only reason to stay here is because it is cheap or if you smoke. Apparently smoking is allowed in some hotels a surprise to me. The room was non smoking but really smelled of cigarettes. Pretty stomach turning to me. The room was a little worn and mold on the shower curtain. The air worked great and it was almost 100 degrees when we stayed and I slept fine, no noise issues. I didn't expect much for the price though. $100 for 2 nights, pretty cheap.

The night clerk was so helpful and polite considering we were tired and weary travelers. I thank Howard Johnson's so much for hiring someone like her. The room was small but okay. Average cleanliness. The location behind another hotel and next to a Mcdonalds restaurant made it hard to get to the HJ hotel. The hotel does not look very good from the outside with all the room size air conditions protruding from the walls of each room on the outside of the building.
