We hadn't stay in a Howard Johnson for years and it was the nicest motel we stayed in while on our trip. Staff was friendly, rooms clean and comfortable. A nice breakfast and a very reasonable rate. When back that way we will stay at it again.

I don't mind staying in a low budget place - I can do without the amenities if the place is clean. There was trash in the areas where there was grass (weeds) which happened to be about 8-10 inches tall. The place smelled in every area I passed through. I will say the young woman at the reception was very...

When I was driving through Alabama, I saw a billboard for hotel that looked pleasant. I stopped by and they had no rooms at the advertised price--all rooms were twice what the billboard stated. Since I don't like the Old Bait and Switch, I decided to continue down the road. Tuscaloosa was not too much farther, so I looked at...

My husband and I stayed at the Howard Johnson for 2 nights. The clerk on duty, Kori, was so kind and polite. My husband felt better staying there since Kori spoke spanish and he could ask her for anything he needed while I went to my meeting. The other front desk staff were also polite and informative. The room is...

This HoJo needs to be cleaned up a bit. It had a stale smell as we walked in the entry door. No elevator. Although the rooms said "no smoking" the halls smelled stale like smoke. The rooms did not smell as bad. Bathrooms were dirty. Toilets worked for us but not for one of my friends In another room. Towels...
