I was staying in New Brunswick for an interview. I typically go for deals and have stayed at a HoJo's before, but not in this poor of condition. The lady at the front desk rudely hurried me off to my room and said "you cannot turn up the fan to high, only low". The room had a bad stench to... More

My stay at this hotel was horrible. I was in a non-smoking room and there were multiple cigarette butt holes in my blanket. The smell of the room was terrible as well. Overall I was dissatisfied with my stay at this hotel. I almost left it was so bad. I would not stay here again.

This place is VERY tired. The room smelled musty, the balcony wasn't accessible because the door was nailed shut and there was no plug in the sink. The "breakfast" was two types of cereal, a few pastries and they didn't provide cream for coffee, just milk (I asked). They appear to have numerous live-in tenants who shuffled into the breakfast...

OK, the property is old, and there are tube TV's. I also didn't stay for the breakfast. My take on the... More

Made reservations for Saturday, September 13. Got to the hotel at 4pm (one hour AFTER check-in) and was given a room key. Walked into the room and was greeted by the smell of stale beer and garbage. The room was completely unclean - spilled beer, beer bottles and caps, dirty blankets, an unmade bed, and trash all over the entire... More

This made me question booking a hotel via an app for a while. I was originally going to stay elsewhere but the WiFi was down and I had to do some work, so I booked this one on my phone thinking "Howard Johnson, good enough price, how bad could it be?" It was actually scary - I was scared I'd... More
