Not sure how this place remains open. Filthy rooms. There is nothing good to say about this place. I'm surprised it hasn't been closed down. Bathroom fixtures rusted. Floors looked like they hadn't been cleaned in many years. Drapery need to be replaced .definately not a place for a family to stay. Pulled in ,checked out the room and practically... More

We checked in to Howard Johnsons on Saturday March 21 for an overnight stay. The room looked fairly clean. The beds were old and not so comfortable but they were passible. My friend went for a swim in the pool and I decided to shower. While sitting on the bed I had an uninvited guest, a very pregnant Mrs. Roach.... More

We spent a nice week on Howard Johnson Inn Near Hard Rock Hotel at Tampa, even the hotel room are not so clean as we expected, was a comfortable time. The air conditioning was good enough, the breakfast good and was very quite (even in the first floor some guests were doing at barbecue)--

This was the worst hotel I have ever been to by far!! Horrible area, and horrible property! The property is completely surrounded by a chain link fence. It's in a horrible area, and it sure seemed like multiple drug deals were going down in the parking lot. We stayed and left as quick as possible the next morning. The room... More

It was just nasty,from blood on the sheets to cigarette holes on the sheets in a non smoking room no less. No cold water in the shower only hot water so unless you like to burn to death you couldn't even shower. Not to mention all the long term people staying there. I might add not the cleanest bunch. I... More
