The hotel room was spacious, nicely furnished, comfortable and quiet. The garden courtyard was very pleasant. The room and breakfast area were clean. I would stay here again.

Stay far away from this property. Its not worth the stay. The staff is horrible! The conditions of the property are out dated and the rooms are filthy ! They do not clean the rooms or the property. Beware and Find another hotel!

Every place was sold out due to the hurricane (Henri). We were lucky to get a room. Not the managements fault but there were so many people vaping on the grounds the place reeked. Run down. Kind of scary.

Jenny, Thank for your recent stay with us. We are certainly an older property but we do provide our guests with a clean and comfortable room at a value price. We do have a limited number of smoking rooms, but we do ask our guests to smoke outside so that the non-smoking rooms remain smoke free. I am sorry for your inconvenience, but as you stated yourself, we were extremely busy on that particular night. We value your business and do hope that you will give us the opportunity to better serve you in the future.

Would have been nice to know that if you decide to pay cash for the room when you get there that there is a $50 deposit in place. Would have been nice to have known before getting to the hotel

Disgusting

Don't ever stay at this hotel it was so dirty I was afraid to walk on the carpets. The towels were dirty and smelled moldy. The pictures they show must have been when the Howard Johnson was new becaus the rooms did not look like that    It was awful and I will ever stay there again.
