Booked a 1 bed King. They said they didn't have any. Gave me a 2 queen room. The whole hallway smelled of Marijuana. The walls and doors were not well insulated you can here the weekly renters yelling at the kids all night.

Planned on staying here 4 nights because it was cheapest alternative. I know HJ isn't 4-star but I left after just one night. I was put in a wing with a family with probably 20 people. They were up all night partying, talking in hall, playing music. Apparently police had to be called. I found a MUCH nicer place for... More
