Howard Johnson Inn - Ramsey
Ranked #4 of 4 Hotels in Ramsey
Reviewed 16 March 2013

The location and price of this hotel makes it a very good choice for the passing traveler or any one visiting New York and not wanting to pay the price of Manhatten hotels or to enjoy the shopping of both Rt. 17 and Woodbury outlets. There is a train station close by that takes you to Manhatten.
Descent rooms and breakfast.
The only issue I had was with the inflexible and unfriendly front desk service.

I woke up in the middle of the night to find a bedbug crawling on me. I put in in a cup and took it to the front desk... No surprise to the person at the desk. They offered me a "gracious" 25% refund, which I never received. I also never got my Wyndham points for my stay. When I got home I unpacked in the driveway, shook out my clothes, and hosed off my luggage. I don't need to bring bedbugs home! There are enough comments about dirty rooms and bathrooms already. The free breakfast is literally cereal and an OJ dispenser. There are gnats flying all over the place around the food. The pool is permanently closed and covered. This hotel has been run to the ground and the owners are milking it.

Room Tip: Avaoid if you don't want to bring bedbugs home

In town for business and tried to save $$. Not worth it. Kid at the counter was rude and felt bothered when I called for an early arrival. When I did arrive, he was dressed in a t-shirt, ripped jeans and sandals. Not very professional. The hotel looked like nothing has changed (or been cleaned) since the sixties. I cancelled my reservation and went up the road to the Holiday Inn Express. For $25 more it was worth it.

My stay at this hotel was much more than expected. Service was great and staff was friendly. Rooms were big and it looked like they upgraded their rooms since I stayed there last. I liked how there was a lot of open space at this hotel and I didn't feel like staying in a box. I would definitely stay here every time rather than other overpriced hotels.

Dirty and run down. Not well maintained at all. Towels had holes in them and were dirty. Sinks and counter tops were not clean. The continental breakfast was a joke. Carpets were poorly vacuumed.
