well-preserved as recently as the middle 2000s, the Mercer complex
served as one the last examples of its type. It became a rare
well-maintained classic circa 1970s Howard Johnson's Motor Lodge.
Hopefully Cendant/Wyndham will allow its continuance as a Howard
Johnson and not place unreasonable demands on its owners that
will force the site to lose its remarkable character.
Mercer ceased being a Howard Johnson in 2007
