I stayed here two weeks ago. I woke up the next day. Bed bug bites all over me. I showed the manager and staff my bites. They didn't care at all and noticed it was new bug bites. I have never encountered bed bugs or a dirty hotel. Don't go here save your money unless you want to wake up... More

From the outside it appears clean and well-kept. OMG....once you get into the room....it is DISGUSTING!!! The carpet has clearly never been cleaned. There is a build up of dirt and dust along the edges. There were smudges of blood and who knows what else on the walls. There were layers of mold on the bathroom faucet. There were pubic... More

This was the first time I ever stayed here and the last, I hope not all Howard Johnson's are like this. I think the days inn across the street is cleaner then this place. There are holes in the corners of the wall towards the floor, the room looked like it hadn't been vaccumed in months, the sheets didnt fit... More

Not one good thing to say about this place. Safety was also a major concern. No control of noise in the other rooms late into the night by management. The included breakfast was also very disappointing.

Rooms are in deplorable condition. House keeping was awful. No washcloths, no hand towels, toilet paper not in holder because holder pulled out of wall, no coffee for room coffee maker, towels were a dingy white. 2 ice machines in entire complex and neither worked. Notice by city stating "do not enter outside stairwell doors" posted on all floors. Sign... More

For the price, you won't be able to find a hotel with easy access to where you're going or coming from. With that said, the doorways, hallways and elevator are dirty and don't smell clean. Thank god that the same didn't go for my room! The room was clean, bed nicely made, ac worked, and I couldn't hear neighbors. Thats... More

I would stay here again if I was short on cash. The place isn't the cleanliest but it's not horrid. The staff were friendly enough and it's in a great location. You can't beat $40 a night and expect a 5-star room. Biggest complaint would be the crap pillows. But the air conditioning kept me cool all night and the... More

I was looking for the cheapest hotel I could find in an ok area of the south suburbs. The deal I got on this hotel was the cheapest around and the area is decent. Kmart, best buy, lifetime fitness withing walking distance. Mall about a mile away. Right off I80. It seems like they are doing some remodeling. The public... More

This was the worst hotel experience of my life. We take a lot of weekend trips and like to stay at different places. I can overlook Something small but this place was beyond help! The short list would be that the carpet was dirty on site the sheets were not clean, the TV only worked on certain channels and there... More

My stay at the Howard Johnson was very nice, the location was perfect right off the highway and close to restaurants and store. I have recommended it to people already. The rooms were clean and the maid service was good.
