Bugs in the room, spider bites, bug bites, dead scorpion in my room, laundry room was broken, fitness room was broken, the internet was not working. I also noticed the Fire Alarm system for the building was in "Silenced" Mode, this is not good!!! After unpacking I went to turn on the Air conditioning unit and it was full of... More

Worst Front desk service EVER!!! The Front desk Lady ( if that thing can be called Lady ) didn't even let me talk. I wanted to see the room, an already paid room. Because I was afraid of the reviews I read of this Howard Johnson Hotel. She didn't let me check in, the reservation was made in Travelocity and... More

There were cockroaches everywhere, and Had to check out a day early because we didn't feel comfortable staying in the room.

The hotel was under renovation, so this is possibly an abnormal situation. The staff was pleasant and knowledgeable. The room was dusty, there was a six inch square hole in the carpet. The remote had no batteries. The hair dryer shorted out when my wife turned it on and shot sparks at her. The bed sheets were not fitted and... More

This was the epitome of a crummy hotel stay. I was in Austin for a dance intensive, bunking for the weekend with a fellow dancer whom I had only ever had internet contact with prior to this. She arrived & checked in before me, I met her at a restaurant where we had a bite, then we went back to... More

There was no hot water in the shower. I booked a no smoking room and u can smell the smoke. There was construction going on. My over all experience was pretty bad. But the front staff was nice

Travel extensively for work. Stayed in many budget motels in several cities. This motel is officially the worst. Wyndham needs to pull its name from this property. I have spoken with them extensively about it. Prostitution, drugs and generally unsavory individuals staying at and loitering around the motel. Broken car window glass in parking lot from break in. No security.... More

The room was humid and smelled of mold. There also appeared to be mold growing on the wall. There was no hot water. The remodeling had removed a lock on the outer building door so you didn't have to go by the front desk to get in which is a security issue in my view. Not to mention that the... More
