The Howard Johnson's on Route 17 in Ramsey is really a motel which might people some people off from it. There's nothing bad about it if you don't mind sleeping in a motel. Usually people only stay here for a night or two before moving on, unlike hotels where they might stay for a week or more. This is really a place for a fast-stop convenient night for sleeping. The prices however are a steal starting at $50/night. The rooms are big and roomy complete with a bed, couch, table and TV. What makes it even better is the excellent Tomo Japanese Restaurant attached to the place. the food is spectacular and the service first class. It makes up for staying in a place like this.
