As soon as I got out of car in the dark parking lot a man approached me on a bicycle, I was alone and it was 1am due to delayed flight. I gave the man what he asked for and he left. When I got to room which means going back out alone into dark parking lot and up stairs, the light switch didn't work. The phone cord was ripped out of wall. Everything was very dirty and there are burns on everything. The white headboard had so many stains on it. There was hairs in the tub. The AC was SO loud. The bed and lines were terrible. The lock on the door was very loose and there was a big screw sticking out. I didn't get any sleep at all. I packed up as if I were leaving because I didn't feel safe. I had booked for 2 days, but was too terrified to go back and ended up spending another$100 for a different hotel. I did not say anything to staff knowing there was nothing they could do as far as refund or fixing the problem and I really didn't want anything else negatively affecting my mood for the weekend.

Dint stay here!!! Crack around the door, holes in tge wall, dripping water, fan in bathroom sounded like a jet engine, frig didnt work, and heater on high barely got warm. Hardly any lighting in parking lot. Attendant barely spoke English and was hard to understand. No breakfast even though it said they do breakfast. So upset! I paid extra because of that.

Our first room had two pieces of hair in the bathroom from two different people, and the second room we moved to the bathroom looked dirty and had a roach in it. I was very disappointed as we chose Howard Johnson over Redroof Inn thinking that we would get much better quality. We definitely didn’t. I wouldn’t recommend staying at this particular hotel.

Howard Johnson fail

Pros: The closeness to the beach.
Cons: Maintenance and general repairs.
The shower curtain rod was falling off the wall, everything was unplugged and had to move furniture to plug in, the refrigerator didn't work. The front desk workers were snotty at best. We were booked for 2 nights and went home early because of this crappy hotel that was NON refundable. I will not stay in this hotel ever again.

Dirty smoke smelling room

The room smelled of smoke even though I requested non smoking accommodations. I returned to the room to find our door ajar. Although nothing was stolen the cleaning staff needs more training on security issues.

Good for the price

It's outdated and old looking but it was a cheap place to stay only 20 mins away from the beach. They had free breakfast but it's just bagels, bread and cereal..coffee and two juices. The rooms come with a small fridge and a microwave so you can bring your own stuff which is what we did to keep down cost. When you first drive up and when you check in..I felt like oh great what have I done this place looks like a drug dealer hotel but that wasn't the case once we got settled in and stayed..we where only there three days but it was fine for only three days and we had two adults and three kids..it was small but we made it through.
