“Not a great place”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 9 June 2014

I won a room here on a Priceline Express deal last week for $59. Upon arrival, I asked for a double room and was told that it would be $30 more. I balked at that, arguing I can normally just get a double for the same price or pay an extra $10 at the most. After threatening that I was going to file a complaint, he finally agreed to the 10 bucks. The place looks okay from the outside, but is pretty old and run down. The hallways and rooms are kind of dingy and smell a little off. The room seemed clean enough, but I would not stay here again. I bid because I was going by a post on betterbidding and thought it was a different place. My bad. It wasn't horrible, but not good either. They do have a nice pool.

We decided to take a last minute trip to Atlantic City on Memorial Day Weekend. We were lucky to find rooms available at this Howard Johnson's and they did not charge an arm and a leg fo the holiday weekend. The staff was very friendly and the room was spacious and clean. The only negative things I would say is that the internet did not work, the outside door leading into the rooms showed you needed your room key to enter, but you did not. I only make this comment for safety reason. The third thing was that when you walk up the stairs the window sills are very dirty and look like there is mold growing on them. Just needs a good cleaning.

We have stayed in HoJo many years ago and our stay then was ok as we did not expect much from the price we paid. We gave it another try last Memorial Day Weekend for one night, as our usual Marriott brands are all booked.
What a mistake......Although they tried to dress up the exterior, as soon as we opened the door to our room , a bad smell from a very dirty carpet made us cough. Since we had no choice that night for lodging, we opened the window so we could breath. We were tired that day and were able to sleep . One thing good is the bed is comfy and clean and that is the only plus .
The place is so old and worn out. The breakfast are is dirty and needs upgrading.
The only acceptable thing in this hotel is the comfy bed.
I do not know how the other reviewers rated this hotel as good ......maybe they had a renovated room
We paid $119.00/night.....got out as fast as we could

Room Tip: do not stay there.

The staff was professional, quick and really great! The place looked great inside and out! The room was clean and comfortable! It came with both a mini fridge and a microwave! The channels were clear and many channels to watch! Its about 6-8 miles outside of Atlantic City which was well worth it! I didn't have the breakfast but it smelled amazing when we were checking out. The only thing I didn't like was the "free transportation." They advertise it as free but you pay $20. They say its free because once you get to Atlantic City, they give you $20 in free slot play, which, to me, wasn't worth it especially considering I hate playing slots. I had a players card to most of the casinos and parking is $5. So, I think it came out to $5.75 split between how ever many people are in your car. But other than that, the hotel was great! No complaints and would definitely stay there again!
