    • Older travelers

      Clean, nice rooms. Good continental breakfast. Wish we'd had time to try out the pool.

      Air quality in room was not great.

    • Couple

      Very affordable and nice staff.

      Heat in the room was either on or off,there was no in between. Otherwise great stay.

    • Group of friends

      Good location, friendly staff.

      Very old, poor heating, poor plumbing. Past it's prime.

    • Older travelers

      The staff were freindly and did help when the can

      The hotel is dated and in need of major repair the hotel looks old outside door locks work on and off carpet dated bathroom old and needs upgrade for the price the price u pay in regards to other hotel changes ex holiday inn express and others for the price they charge upgrade on tv is needed.heater's in room need work .

    • Older travelers

      Howard Johnson has always been a family friendly hotel The bed was very comfortable.

      The restaurant was not open. I'm not really sure about the lounge. I don't think that hte bar tender knew how to make a Vodka collins. It was terrible. Not many people in the lounge at all for a Sat night.

    • Family with children

      Poolside room. Desk person listened and was helpful with our complaints.

      The run down condition of the hotel. The bathroom door was in great need of planing. The bathroom electrical socket was loose. The cardloack for the poolside door didn't work.A Poor continental breakfast on the Saturday morning (Oct 13), only biscuts & gravy for hot meal. Staff said they couldn't do anything else hot for breakfast because they had to cater to the football team staying there. Some of the football players spit chewing tobacco around and in the hottub. My son & I got some gunk on our feet later on. A few days we left for Grand Forks the hotel said they lost my credit card number.

    • Couple

      It was conveniently located. Had stayed there previously. New what it was like.

      Very little control over temperature in room. It was too warm. No windows to open. The glass in the room is permanently placed and does not open. Only food option in the evening was Pizza Corner pizza that is served in the bar.

    • Family with children

      Location works for what we were doing.

      We had 2 rooms and 2 confirmation numbers and credit card was charged for 2 rooms, yet when we checked in we only had one room. Entire town was sold out. Caused quite a scene as there were 6 of us, told oh well sorry. Waited about 30 minutes and asked a different hotel desk person and she said oh sure we have rooms no problem. In end got 2 rooms, but the stress it caused was far beyond a nice weekend.

    • Older travelers

      The location was good and the room was just fine. I think the water park would have been nice if my granddaughter had been with us.

      The hallways leading to the room were dirty.

    • Group of friends

      Friendly and helpful staff. Breakfast was also delicious and a wide variety of choices. Coffee was fabulous. Close to everything as well.

    • Family with children

      The place was VERY DIRTY, no air, so we had to sleep with the outside door wide open, so anyone could have came into our room and did whatever to us!!! We waited for 30 min to be serverd at the bar, but never got waited on so we left. Plus we got charged for our room twice!

    • Single

      Very convenient, I had a pleasant stay! The waterpark was a nice touch! A lot of fun!

      Sometimes there seem to not be enough staff available, like one night the restaurant/ bar closed because the only person that worked that night there went home sick so I had to go across the road to the Econo Lodge or some other hotel with a restaurant/ bar to get a drink and order a pizza. Oh and my room didn't originally have a desk chair for some reason, but the front desk took care of that matter. But other than that, it was a decent stay, I would visit again for sure!

    • Family with children

      Breakfast was reasonable.

      Rooms dirty and old. Tv did not work, phone did not work. We did not get our towels replaced. Closet door was missing knob. Hair dryer did not work. People were palying in the pool area, yelling tell 230 am, called reception area and they did not do anything about it. Horrible, money saving was definately not worth it.

    • Single

      Location and desk people were excellent

      Dirty carpets in hall, grubby comforters on bed-really yucky, adjacent pool's humidity flowed through my room, no black out curtains so people in adjacent table area could see into my room. Front desk people were excellent but no other rooms were available. I will not stay there again.

    • Family with children

      The tv

      Noisy air conditioner, broken bed, pizza, no fridge, breakfast only available until 9:00 am
