Howard Johnson Inn Cape Cod Area

Reviewed 23 August 2013

I was upgraded to a bay view room which overlooked a beautiful marsh with wildlife. The room had two queen-sized beds. Neither bed had a mattress cover, and sheets were threadbare. Fridge was inoperative but was replaced quickly. Room was not clean. A film seemed to coat many surfaces. The carpet was wet near the bathroom's threshold, and I always wore shoes in the room. The bathroom looked like it had received a new toilet and sink. The TV was an old CRT unit. The exterior of the buildings was showing signs of peeling paint, decaying roof sections and was flirting with dilapidation although the outdoor pool water looked clean. Skip the breakfast: minimal selection, and the design of the counter limits access to no more than a few people at a time. The staff was pleasant.

Room Tip: Rooms in the rear building (south structure) offer the views of the marsh land.

I went to this hotel on a chance and it was a pleasant surprise. The room was very spacious and had lots of windows. There was a very nice indoor pool and whirlpool and a pool located in the center of the property where the sun shone bright. The maids were very nice and accomodating. Also, the hotel was close to downtown Hyannis, several nice restaurants, theme parks, ice cream, etc. while not right in the thick of the traffic. You could still get to the beaches on both sides, the island ferries and other attractions without much trouble at all. The staff was friendly and accomodating. Note: all rooms are not the same and one should ask upon arrival.if you have any preferences. The hotel was very well-priced, (reasonable). It made my stay stressless and pleasant.

Room Tip: Some rooms have large screen tvs, others do not, some are larger than others, some more windows. Ma...

For the price, our room was impeccably clean and by chance, we were given a room with a million dollar view of the salt marshes. Managment was extremely pleasant to deal with. I highly recommend if you are looking for a simple, clean place to spend a night or two. For us, the only draw back was that there was really no place to hang beach towels to dry, inside or out, in the ground floor rooms. But we solved this by swinging by a laundromat on the way back from the beach. The kids loved the pools and the ping pong table available. Continental breakfast...meh. But then again, for the price, I wasn't expecting a buffet fit for a king. Oh, and the mattresses were VERY comfortable. Air conditioner was very noisy for the first 10 minutes or so, but then quieted right down.

Room Tip: Rooms with a view of the salt marshes are great, if you care to look out the window....
