      Coffee set-up a total failure

      Parking was crowded and difficult, with only one lane for in and out and cramped space for parking. Coffee pot was not clean and had black things in it -- I hope they were coffee grounds. It didn't matter, though, because the coffee maker was broken, I could could not figure out how to attach the parts. It is unlikely that I'll stay at a Howard Johnson or a Wyndham again. Also, there was no creamer, sugar or sweetener.

      Looking forward to the day when all hotels offer electric vehicle charging stations in their parking lots! Howard Johnson's needs to step up and support green tourism by installing a charging station at every hotel.

      Our room was very clean and comfortable. Great location next to several restaurants and bars. We felt safe and had no issues during our stay.

    • 6.0.Good

      Comfy bed but very small hotel..

      It was okay…the room was close to stairs that anyone who took the stairs either ran up or down and made it noisy so would wake up from that and hard to fall back asleep…the room itself was small and the bed was clean and comfortable but the bathroom was odd shaped and the showerhead leaked when it was turned on as well as the sink dripped on and off…it would have been nice to have an extra blanket and pillows since the size of them were not standard in the room and there was no closet to hang clothes. Parking is tight since it’s a very small area to park.

      Not impressed with Howard Johnson name brand.

      We heard the tv next door all night. Dresser old and paint chipping off. Room in need of renovation.

    • 8.0.Very good

      Rooms need update-to-date coffee machines. The one in our room was old with a cup filter. Keurig coffee machines are the best for hotel stays and produce really good coffee.
