      I didn't like that we were put on room 260. I know that someone has to have the room, but it was a long, long ways from the front desk. It was kind of a challenge to get our luggage to our room. Also, the parking is kind of an issue if you are out at night, mo spaces left.

      Nothing - It was very disappointing- From the very start the staff were rude and the hotel would crawl in at 2 Stars (probably less) I would not recommend it to anyone.

    • Older travelers
      6.6

      The closeness to the main city area and shuttles for activities. Also close to eating places as their resturant was not open for dinner. The one thing that was disappointing was the unfriendliness of the staff on the front desk.All other hotels have had very helpful friendly people

      Location - downtown

      Pool was not open, air conditioner did not work

      Convenient location and within walking distance to most of downtown.

      When arriving at airport, called for hotel shuttle and was told it would be there shortly. An hour and three more phone calls later it finally arrived. The next morning I called for breakfast and was told I should receive a phone call in about 15 min when it was ready. I called when 30 min had passed only to find out they hadn't even started to prepare it. Check out also took at least 30 min due to sole worker at front desk being overwhelmed. Rooms were ok but definitely not worth the price. Service was terrible.

      The maids and cleaning crew were very friendly and efficient, always greeting us with a smile. The front desk staff were somewhat friendly, too, and did handle our reservation efficiently.

      The room itself was relatively roomy but the bed was as hard as a rock. For those who like firm or extra firm beds, this would have been fine, but I like my bed a little softer. Also, the amenities seemed to be "bare bones," as the bathroom had a ripped towel and no tray to hold the complimentary shampoo and soap. This may seem picky, but a $1 tray in each room would go a long way. Also, in the halls, many of the light fixtures were missing their covers. Again, a relatively small investment of light covers will help the perception of quality. I received an unexpected shock that the indoor pool was closed for renovations. I don't remember this information being disclosed in the hotel advertising or amenities list, and I selected this hotel because of the rate and the fact that it had an attractive indoor pool. That was disappointing, but I'll survive.

      Not much and I will not stay at this hotel in the future

      Having a bunch of kids at the front desk is not very professional as far as I am concerned. They where not very helpful at all

      I liked that there was a shuttle to and from the airport.

      I would not recommend this hotel. It was not up to the Howard Johnson standard I thought they had. It needs to be updated and cleaned. We heard the train whistle all night long and noise coming from the parking lot.

      close to shopping mall

      too much noise, not very clean, I found the bathroom was dirty toilet seat, the linen was smells cigarette, the floor was not vacuum, the room a need full body mirror.

      It was a convienient location.

      The hotel was sufficient but did not go out of their way to make us feel comfortable.
