We arrived a couple hours before check-in and only had to wait 10 minutes and our rooms were ready, without paying anything additional. The desk clerk was very nice. The rooms were clean and comfortable. No issues.

The place is pretty nice for a Howard Johnson motel but there is always something not working and this time it was the TV. The WiFi was initially not allowing access but it eventually came on and they do have a laptop at the front desk that is available.

Good location, clean, no frills hotel. Still offering smoking rooms, which is a rare convenience. Plenty of parking. Strong wifi signal, for free. Starbucks and some more than decent restaurants within walking distance. Good value.
