Pleasing experience

Posted Oct 26, 2014
Pros: Waffles
Cons: Beds were lumpy and so were most of the pillows
Beds weren't that comfy and pillows were lumpy. But called for new pillows and those were great. Love the Waffles too so yummy!!

Bad Ambiance

Posted Oct 19, 2014
This was my first time staying at a Howard Johnson. Although I didn't expect it to be high class, I did expect it to be comparable to a Comfort or Quality Inn. It gave off a motel vibe and not a hotel vibe. The surrounding area was run down. The facilities inside and out seemed neglected. The halls smelled like beer and cigarettes. The first room we were given had old furniture. The headboards were made from fabric and were dusty and dirty. The chair in the room had white stains on it. The staff was nice enough to change our room which was better than the 1st but the furniture was still dated. The bathrooms were the only thing in the hotel that seemed modern. It was conveniently located near Atlantic City so that was one plus. Based on this experience I don't plan to stay at a Howard Johnson again.

Not terrible, but still needs improvement.

You can tell this hotel has seen better days. The room was clean, but had a musty smell. Overall, the staff was disappointing. The desk staff was borderline rude and housekeeping was not great. There were several times that I had to ask for coffee to be delivered to the room, even after the room had been cleaned. On a positive note, it appears that they owners are trying to improve the hotel. I heard them talking with a contractor about repairing the tennis courts, and I could see other places that seemed to have been recently repaired.

Stayed the weekend,had no real issues with the hotel.Only thing was the carpet had a slight smell.Great price rather than staying at a casino hotel for triple.
