This motel is close to down town but I would recommend staying in a different hotel. My friends and I were watched constantly and it could have been cleaner. I understand having guests per room regulations, but we had 2 friends drinking in our room and were harassed the entire time..... Definitely wouldn't have those problems in a hotel.

I have stayed here 6 or 7 times over the last month. As the season got busier and rooms were getting booked well in advance, the staff looked into any and all possibilities of accommodating me after I had a sudden change of plans on short notice. The continental breakfast offered more options than I usually have at home. Waffles...

Awesome! Big room lots of fun! Close to everything downtown. Very clean and management was so nice! Would definitely recommend! Make sure you read the details of occupancy maximums before booking room - double room does not mean 2 beds! Manager was great with fixing my mistake! Awesome! Fantastic!

Glad you enjoyed your stay! Our "double" rooms refer to the size of the bed, sorry for the confusion. We hope to hear from you again.

Budget accommodation, and worth that, just. Well located near downtown though depressingly ugly, this HoJo offers a clean and spacious room at a decent price. (Ask for a second-storey room, I suggest.) Staff were pleasant enough in what is probably not a terrific job. The bed was comfortable enough, and the shower worked well. A pleasing view of green out...

I arrived at the Howard Johnson after escaping from a cottage visit gone wrong. It was about 1am and I was extremely upset and lost. My phone had fallen into the water, so I happened upon this place to stop and went in to get a room. The attendant was so understanding and empathetic to my situation. I'm a tiny...

The room was relatively inexpensive (although booking online was more than what was posted on the sign outside). It was small and sort of humid, but it did the trick. No real issues.
