I stayed here for just a few days while we went to the football game. The hotel was clean and all the staff was friendly. I really enjoyed my time. The room was large and had all the needed items. There is a pool and gym on site which is nice and well kept. The pool is actually an inside/outside...

Excellent value for the price. I was so impressed with the room, especially for the affordable price. It was easy to get to the Sprint center for the Comedy Get Down. I will definitely be back!

Pretty good amenities but pool was closed for cleaning our whole visit. This is one of the reasons why we chose to stay at hotel because of the pool.

We thought we were returning to the same Howard Johnson from several years ago but we were sadly wrong. The TV was so small and many channels had no sound. The internet advertised a hot/cold breakfast buffet included but only continental breakfast was free. The area was not near any food.

Arrived late due to your hotel having a Ramada sign on top instead of a Howard Johnson sign. Signs to the hotel were non existence but should be necessary since the hotel backed up to a lake in the middle of many commercial businesses. Advertised continental breakfast consisted of stale muffins and bagels...cereal and waffles if I wanted to wait...
