Beware of rodents and poor management! – We booked a night in this hotel on May 9th. We checked into our room in the afternoon, and then dropped off our stuff to attend a wedding at the Don Cesar down the street. When we got back from the wedding, my girlfriend was at the vanity getting ready for bed when she turned around and saw a black rodent (r@t) staring at her from beside the fridge. She screamed at the top of her lungs, and the rodent scurried around the wall and then behind the bed. Even though it was past midnight, we packed up our stuff and left. As if that was not bad enough, our experience with management afterwards has been just as upsetting. I tried to contact the General Manager (Kay) for nearly a month after the incident to seek a refund. Despite my attempts to contact her, I only received word AFTER I reported the incident to Howard Johnsons corporate office. She sent me a letter accusing us of lying about the rodent, and refusing to refund the nights stay. I would not recommend this place to my worst enemy, so book at your own risk.
A well-known, mid-priced national and international hotel chain where kids always stay free. – In Short
Howard Johnson's story began in 1925, with an ice cream stand that soon became a chain of orange-roofed restaurants, and eventually motor lodges. Today, the hotels offer quality accommodations at value prices for families and business travelers. Comforts of Home amenities include in-room coffeemakers, complimentary weekday newspapers and more. Most locations offer Home Office rooms, with work desks and chairs, and Crayola Kids Rooms, with Crayola easels and accessories, plus a mini-fridge and microwave.
Cannot fault the hotel whatsoever – One of the best budget hotels I have ever stayed in. Very comfortable beds and the rooms are very spacious. The location is excellent.
