Guest Recommendations
Coffee was good.
"Coffee brand Sara Lee was awesome! Don't change it. Staff was great but they shouldn't drink their coffee in plain sight."
Mark from Calhoun, GA US rated Howard Johnson Greensboro/Near the Coliseum 8 out of 10 on October 17, 2010
"We had a leak in the sink, which left water all over the floor. The bathroom had about an inch of water on the floor, and there were times the commode wouldn't flush. My family and I all agreed that we never want to stay there again."
