We loved this Howard Johnson. The rooms were spacious and had cute little balconies. The hotel is situated on a channel and on the water. There is a tiki bar and boat rental near the water. The pool is large and big enough for many people. While we were there, we were able to see dolphins up close because they were in the channel for rehabilitation. The price was right and we were happy. They didn't receive 5 stars because their breakfast choice only includes one buffet.
