          As indicated previously, I chose this hotel for its budget friendly price and overall I do feel that I got my moneys worth.

          The room I stayed in was missing the door chain and it was difficult to open and close the door. There was one used towel left in our room and the room itself smelled like mildew/mould. There was also not much sound proofing, the walls were pretty thin.

        • Group of friends
          4.6

          I like the price but not clean it has bad smell in side the room . The manager she is not friendly with customer's . but I got what I paid.

          The price .

          I was not comfortable at all there.

          Bed was hard the place was run down, was not the picture on the website at all. I was run down.

          Nothing.

          . Rooms were dirty. Smoky. There were stained sheets. You could hear your neighbor breathe, it was bad.

          Inexpensive and central

          I had stayed there preciously and had been happy with the accommodation. However, this time the accommodation was poor - no hot water in the shower, no TV reception, overpowering air freshener smells. I'm not sure I will return

          The extremely low price for a very nice room. Having a room on the second floor and having balcony.

          No complaints. At my own expense for being lazy I missed the provided breakfeast.

          price and location

          cleanliness, general repair, comfort of bed

        • Older travelers
          3.2

          The check in employee was nice. Our room was awful, the towels were dirty, the room was so hot and the window didn't open, nor did the fan blow well. We ended up opening our room door at 2:00 am because I couldn't take it. We were five minutes late checking out but already at two minutes after they were calling asking us to check out. I was told I would be contacted by the manager..still waiting.

        • Older travelers

          When we opened the door the first light did not work. We had to move around in the dark and find another light we could turn on. The bed was made in such a way that the blanket started halfway down a person's body. We remade the bed before we could get in. (I have worked in the hospitality industry and taught many people how to make a proper bed!) The room was very small. The walls must have been thin because we could hear others talking well into the night--past 12:30 a.m. We would not choose to stay at that Howard Johnson Express Inn again.

          It was close to where we needed to travel with, and it provided a continental breakfast with a few extras. There room was pleasantly warm

          The bedding was poor, (torn and stained sheets), there was no disabled access as there were stairs to everything. The bathroom linens were old and very worn, and the pillows were lacking, there was only two to each queen bed

        • Single
          6.4

          As I was there for business reason and it was so close to my place it was perfect

        • Family with children
          3.2

          nice tv

          no bedside lamp, room was dark, baseboard heater was broken,bed was uncomfortable, bathroom fan was very noisy.could hear people walking by our room,

        • Couple
          2.8

          The whole place was run down like a crack shack. It smelled horrible. The room was shabby to say the least. The TV was smashed on the top and barely worked, the walls were paper thin and dirty, with wallpaper peeling and patchy, the room was tiny, the sheets where thread bare, the pillows where smaller than maxi pads, the mattress was so aweful you'd roll into the middle, or stub your toe on the bed frame, the duvet was dirty with what I can only describe as human excrement or blood, the water faucet sprayed water all over when you turned it on, there was no hot water in the shower, the soap packages were dirty, the room was dim, the balcony was dirty, the light shone through the cracks in the door from the hallway. You could hear people slamming doors outside in the hall, you could hear what people were doing inside their suites as you walked down the hall, the hall was so poorly lit I actually tripped on a mat, the door to our suite wouldn't open and was patched with steal panels, the whole place smelled horrible even in the main building, the breakfast was gross: the waffle maker was not totally working so parts of my waffle were raw and you couldn't boil water in the kettle while toasting a piece of bread without the breaker going out. Sure, it's a cheap place. But seriously, just spend and extra $20 and stay somewhere else!
