    Pool is a nice touch

    Great hotel and wonderful service. Unfortunately our room wasn’t cleaned during our stay- I think due to staff shortage or covid ..? But it was still a great experience. Loved the pool.

    Pick another hotel.

    Room is very dated. A/C control knob was broken. Also ice bucket was mouldy inside. Went to front desk for replacements. Staff said they would sent someone up to room. Never happened. To top things off power went out for 25 min in the morning while in the shower. Will not stay at Howard Johnson hotels again. Extremely poor!!!

    I arrived with my two kids (8 and 10) after the check in time to be informed our room was not ready. Instead of asking how they could make this better for us, the front desk agent simply offered two drink tickets at the bar. I AM WITH MY KIDS! All we wanted to do was get settled in and enjoy the pool. Drinks from the bar have no currency with me. When i noticed that other pool patrons were having food delivered poolside, i went to inquire with the front desk if rather than drinks may we please have a plate french fries for the kids. I was responded to with "Oh, I don't think I can do that for you." I waited a moment assuming that the front desk agent meant they were going to check, but they did nothing. I explained what i felt was obvious (that i am hear with my kids. I have no interest in drinks from the bar.) To that i was offered, "well, you can have pop instead." Instead of blindly assuming what will make things more enjoyable for your guests or make up for poor preparedness, please train your front line staff how to listen to your guests. I would expect this level of service from a lesser establishment, but you are charging me $275 per night. I know this is not the Fairmont, but i expect a front desk agent to be friendly, enthusiatic, polished and professional, and caring enough to want the best experience for every guest that stays with them. This was my first stay at your hotel. I felt very unappreciated from the first contact to check out.

    Front desk Manager was very friendly, knowledgeable, and communicated all details of the stay very well. The property has been neglected and requires some repairs (ie loose carpet in hallway on 2nd floor creates a tripping hazard, water stains on ceiling, stained carpet in room, dated/worn fixtures and furniture, mattresses were worn and need replacing). The worst part of the experience was finding the bathtub had not been cleaned properly, and had hairs in it from the previous guest. There was also hair stuck to the ceiling in the bathroom and some other noticeably dirty areas on walls
