        The front-desk person was just horrible. His abrupt, nasty attitude was apparent within the first 3 seconds when I was at check-in. I did not expect to pay an additional $30 either because the confirmation did not clearly explain that. Even though the room was fairly clean, the scenery was terrible....there was a small balcony that overlooked an alley and there was even a homeless person asleep on the ground - what a great view!

        Another amazing stay at Howard Johnson's Inn! Very convenient, and I found a terrific Malaysian-Chinese restaurant, Melaka, just across the side street from the Inn. Great for take-out! I requested the same room on the 3rd Floor, and got it (#304). I like the view of the Church!

        Although the location is convenient, Pacific Avenue late at night can be a bit dicey. Stay in lighted areas and walk along the street side if you are returning to the Inn late at night. You should stay safe if you remain alert.

        It's close to the boardwalk and the rides for the kids and it's close to all the store outlets and casinos.

        Some of the people who stood around on the corners at the jitney bus stop.

        I loved the hominess of the Inn. The desk clerks were all helpful, friendly and courteous. The rooms were kept very clean, and my King Size bed was regally comfortable. The bathroom amenties, ie., Shampoo and soap, were nice added touches with the Howard Johnson logo. I would stay here again! I also loved Perry's Cafe downstairs for a simple, inexpensive breakfast meal.

        None to speak of, except the maid left 2 packages of decaffeinated coffee when I drink only caffeinated coffee.

        Even though the rooms are smaller than I expected they were clean and well designed...The price is good for what you get.

        I didn't care too much for the front office staff. I'm not sure if they are a product of their environment, but there was no professionalism whatsoever..if they worked on their customer service skills they would probably get better reviews. I parked my car in the designated spot and as soon as I walked in to the hotel one of the front office clerks jumped on me and asked me for my car keys assuming I had blocked other cars..he immediately jumped on us and asked for our car keys without bothering to ask us what kind of car we were driving.

        It being the week after Labor Day weekend, the rates were great.

        We were supposed to get complimentary shuttle to casinos. That didn't happen. We paid for the service because the streets aren't very safe at night.

        Stayed one night during our “road-trip” everything about this hotel was fine. Possibly not the best part of town but we didn’t have any problems during the short walk to and from the Boardwalk at night. The staff were friendly and helpful. Car park monitored by video cameras at reception. Our room was clean and well maintained.

        Not the prettiest hotel from the outside

        Closeness to the boardwalk.

        Dirty, bad area of the city, expensive. Misleading photos on your website.

        The second floor room faced the ppol. which did not allow us to open the curtains. You must frost the lower panes for privacy, so that we can allow the sunlight to come into the rooms.

        Liked the fact how close we were to the beach.

        Didn't like the beds way to firm for our liking. The little drug activity we seen but taking care of by the end of our trip. They hired a off duty cop to take care of it!

        Fairly decent size room. Very clean bathroom!

        No refrigerator in the room. The location was close to the beach but not in the best part of town.

        I took this trip short notice and they were the only place that had rooms under $200 a night on Sat. It was like $165 which was still a lot considering it was not a great place. The room was clean, and so was the shower. Thats important to me and wireless internet was fast.

        The bed was stiff as a board so it was difficult to fall asleep and it is not comfortable to try and watch tv when trying to unwind due to how uncomfortable to bed was.
