If you enjoy the smell of burning marijuana at night and puke in the mornings, this is the place for you! Stayed on a Friday & Saturday and smelled burning marijuana at night. On Sunday morning, someone missed the garbage can near the entryway to the building and it was all over the floor. Additionally, the railing was broke. I... More

We had a unfortunate mix up with our hotels in athens, so we were placed at the Howard Johnson. By all means of filth, this place fit the definition. The first hours our staff noticed the bed sheets were spotted with a brown substance. I noticed this, recognized it as blood (as a mortician you know this stuff!). So we... More
