After a long day of skiing, my boyfriend and I decided to stay at Howard Johnson Express Inn. A few minutes after we had entered the room, we had received a call from the front desk asking if everything was okay.

Most hotels have extra plugs for use and a full shower/bath but not this place. It seemed as though the hotel was imcomplete and left me wanting more.

Booked this hotel through Priceline.com, on arrival parking lot was full..pub/bar was on the end of this hotel. Checking in at the front desk was an experience.

Lots of parking, close to downtown nightlife and... More

My stay at this hotel was by far the worse experienced. Everything from terrible customer service-rude, disrespectful and unaccomodating to bed bugs. NEVER will stay here again or another Howard Johnston and will advise all friends and family as well.

This place was a fleabag. I could hear every noise outside, The room had a heavy mildew smell, There were dead ants in the bathroom. Didnt want to use the shower. Only stayed one night and was charged $170.00 for the suite. Didn't sleep a wink.
