This hotel has seen better days and is in a very sketchy neighborhood. Definitely hasn't aged well. We brought our swimsuits and we're looking forward to the pool in the 102 degree weather but sadly the pool was green. On the surface, the room was clean but don't look too closely. The sheets were wrinkled and thin. The air conditioner was so loud we had to turn it off to sleep and then it got too hot to sleep. The room we were given was right by the office. About 4:45 am other guests congregated outside our room to wait for the 5:05 am shuttle and talked loudly about what they had for dinner the night before, etc. The shuttle service was the best part of our experience.

The hotel was absolutely filthy. I have stayed in a lot of hotels but this was by far the worse. The room was filthy. The phone cord was caked with dirt. But we were flying out in the morning and we had already paid our money so we had no other option. Will never stay at another Howard Johnson's again.

This hotel was a dump and very noisy!! I would never stay there again. I was afraid my car wasn't good by to be there when I got back from my trip. Fortunately it was.

Room was clean and had everything I needed. Personnel were very friendly and helpful. Waited over 45 minutes for shuttle to come after I called from the airport. It never came and I had to call Uber to get back to the hotel.
