Customer service was excellent. Our rooms were quite comfortable, and I slept good. My students and I reserved rooms 105, 106, 111 & 112. We all enjoyed the stay. I look forward to coming back to the Howard Johnson Inn next school year...

Room decent. Breakfast -only cereal boxes, white bread, and juice. Loud Mexican neighbors. Wifi weak. Got what I paid for. The AC was good, but the room and hotel in general could have used some more amenities, and they don't necessarily have to be expensive ones.

Stayed at the Howard Johnson's in Athens to attend a concert at the Foundry which is fairly close by. Had reservations about this as HOJO properties are not what they were in the 1960s-80s. In a nutshell, I found the hotel to be adequate. I got a discounted room rate of $58 + tax ($71. total) and it was certainly... More

Computers were down so it took an hr and 45 mins past check in to get in our room. And technically we still weren't even checked in so I don't know why they didn't just do that in the first place instead of having us all wait for that long. I had to tell them we had already been waiting... More

For the price, the room was ok, but nothing more, the wifi was not working (almost impossible to connect) and the door between rooms /that we had) was not insulated at all, we could hear almost everything from the other room.

$100 a night for a dirty property with a marginally dirty room in severe disrepair. Handle was falling off the bathroom door, room door handle would only work if you turned it up instead of down. Stains all over the shower curtain, and cigarette burns all over the bathroom vanity. Icing on the cake: both of our key cards weren't... More
