The place is a dirty dump. Don't waste your money. Unless wasted guests wandering the parking lot is your thing. The price does not make up for anything that you may encounter. Although the hotel gets nostalgia points for the dated 20 inch tv.

This hotel is no longer owned by Howard Johnson, it is now the Good Night Inn. The "business room" was a computer in the front lobby that wasn't even hooked up. The rooms had ice buckets but the hotel has no ice, so it's basically a decoration. Cleaners are extremely loud, slamming doors and taking over the entire hallway. The towels are thin and scratchy, only 3 pillows were supplied and no facecloths. The only plus was good air conditioning. Definitely won't be returning though

I am writing this review to WARN you to never stay at this hotel for the following reasons: * Check-in: upon checking in we were told that we did not have a reservation although I presented the front desk man (named Gill) with my itinerary from Expedia and my paid receipt. He argued with me and told me that I did not have a reservation and if I was unhappy with it to call Expedia. After telling him I will call Expedia, he told me that even if Expedia said I had a reservation he would not let me stay at the hotel. More than anything he was unhappy that I had brought a reservation to him that was made before the hotel was bought out (used to be a Howard Johnson). I told him this was awful customer service. He yelled at me and finally agreed to honour the booked Expedia reservation, only after Expedia was on the phone with him for 20 minutes. * Bathroom: The doorknob for the bathroom was missing and there was only a metal piece which sometimes opened and on several occasions either myself or my fiancé were locked in. When checking out they wanted to do a walk around in our room and tried accusing us of breaking the door handle, however, I had taken photos of the room timestamped from when we first walked in upon check-in and showed the lady, so she said it was OK. Both the bathtub and the toilet had hairs upon them when checking in, hairs that did not belong to us. * Cleanliness: I have uploaded several photos to show you the total absence of cleanliness. The sheets were dirty, as were the towels, there were bugs smeared on the walls, hairs in the sink toilet and bathtub, and a cigarette butt on the luggage holder. Also, on several occasions we killed bugs crawling across the floor and walls. * Security: I have also uploaded some photos of the door, which had no deadbolt and was broken, and not properly locking, which made us feel very unsafe. The housekeeping came in unannounced at 9:30am although check out was at 11:00am * Others: Air conditioning was loud, there were cigarette burns on the furniture, the outlets did not have covers on them, the room smelt musky and of smoke although a smoke free room. Overall, avoid this disturbing hotel, as we were tempted to sleep in our car rather than stay in this hotel for another night. If you want a second key they will charge you a surcharge and the guy at the front desk will try and get you to pay in cash to pocket the money, meanwhile not provide you with any paperwork (happened to the group in front of us). Avoid at all costs!!!!

Wyndham sucks I book this thought Wyndham under the pretence that it was a Howard Johnson 3 months in advance. At no time was I given any notice that the property had been sold to a 3rd party and they are no longer a Wyndham partner. To add insult to injury when I arrived I could not cancel my reservation because all the other Wyndham Hotels in the area were all booked up. I called wyndham customer support to see if they could make the exception and give me the reward points that I should have earned for my 1 week stay ... after a lot apologies and lip service the bottom line was that they would not be giving me any points for my stay! This to me borders on criminal petty and greed !!! I would have been a drop in the bucket for them to give me the points after all it was their mistake. Now they have lost a good rewards member and their Hotel Partners have lost a future client ! Its their loss! Penny-wise and pound foolish.

This hotel is dirty, rooms weren't clean, stains on sheets and pillows. Check in for 4 rooms took 30mins, continental breakfast was a joke, 2 bananas in a bowl with some no name cereal and almost expired milk. Juice machine didn't work and anytime you went to the front desk the door was locked and a cell number was written on a sticky note.
