We stayed at Howard Johnson's for SUPER BOWL weekend. Our room was very nice. The king sized bed was so comfortable that I wish I had it at my house! The staff were very friendly and helpful. The breakfast was amazing for a self service breakfast bar. There were scrambled eggs and a waffle iron all hot and ready to...

It was enjoyable but the only problem I had was it showed a hot tub in the picture but there wasn't one. The pool was excellent though. Room was comfortable and clean and was very quiet. The breakfast though biscuits were hard and rest was cold they should have been a little more up on that.

I will look into the biscuit issue - nothing gives me more pleasure than 'testing' our breakfast! :) Thank you, Chiara

I was disappointed in the bedding. It is too bad that since the reason most people stay is to sleep, there is not much provided in bed comfort. The room set-up is fine, but not appointed for comfort either. The room is not set up for accessibility, just the bathroom. If a person needed a wheelchair there is no room...

Dear judilee01, I am very sorry we didn't meet your expectations. We have ADA rooms which are comfortable and accessible to anyone in a wheelchair. We don't provide those unless requested. We are comparable to many hotels in our area and class - we also provide fridges and microwaves in all our room free of charge. Thank you for taking...
