HORRIBLE PLACE! First off, when I arrived, the front desk clerk was nice and helpful in finding my room. After finding my room and settling in, the room looked and smelled dampy! I got a room with double beds...not bad for $50, so i thought. Upon inspecting the room, I found the smoke detector hung from the wall from its... More

Worst stay I've ever had. Needed a hotel quick so I went to expedia and found this one, booked it for $70 (after tax) would have much rather slept in my car! I went out and bought Lysol and sprayed every surface from floor to ceiling. The man at the front desk was very rude, got into our room and... More

This motel is an embarrassment for Expedia or any other sites ! Old, dirty and insects are everywhere! For this price, it is very big JOKE! The address is on Expedia is shown wrong. I spent about 40 minutes to find this place. Finally I called the hotel and receptionist was very nice.

Car broke down in their lot, otherwise we would have gone elsewhere. Staff was very nice, but our room was terrible. Broken bed springs, dirt in all the corners, mold and mildew in the unclean bathroom. Terrible repair jobs on several damaged wall areas. Smoke detector removed from centralized system, and battery was dead and on and on.

I am a nurse at one of the downtown hospitals. The area was expecting ice overnight and I live an hour away so I decided to get a room for the night instead of sleeping on the hospital floor-at least I would get a bed and a hot shower! The first room I was given, the safety latch was busted... More

The beds were clean, and mattresses were good so we had a good sleep. I think the price is a little too expensive for what the Inn offers. We didn't have breakfast as we weren't told about this at check-in and it was over by the time we realised. The sink in our room didn't work at all, and the... More

Enjoyed our stay. Clean rooms and would come back. It was also great priced. Only con was they did not have a big breakfast choice. Cereal and coffee was about all the choices you got. Thanks howard johnson for saving our night. Everything else in this area was booked !
