This hotel should not be allowed to be a Howard Johnson because there is an expectation of standard that it in no way represents. Our stay included dirty rooms, stained sheets & towels, filthy furniture, a pool with no water, broken air conditioner that turned off, stale breakfast items, police raid for drug related arrests at the hotel, & we...

We stayed at this rundown hotel and were disgusted. The rooms are dirty, the pool closed, breakfast consisted of stale cereal with warm milk. The Roanoke Police dept. filled the parking lot at 7am, we knew we were in a bad location. After asking the hotel owner, Mehulinh Vashi about the crime & drug bust. He told us the police... More

Where can I start with this hotel? I should have known when the door to enter the lobby was missing a handle that the hotel was in poor condition. The sidewalks around the building were cracking and had holes. Drapes were worn out and had holes. Roof looked like it needed replacing and the hotel needed a new paint job.... More

We knew it wasn't a five star hotel because of the price but it seemed to be clean. We stayed only 1 night and needed the room just for sleeping. The management seemed like very nice people. The continental breakfast was very sparse and didn't have anything a gluten/dairy free person could eat.

The room had a bad oder, old tv's, stained sheets, remotes missing batteries, toilets clogged up. This was my worst hotel stay ever. Front desk clerk was rude.

Do not stay at Howard Johnsons on Thirlane Road in Roanoke, VA. Had this hotel not been on a list of possible accommodations provided by a local college for graduation weekend, I would not have made plans to stay here. The group I was traveling with included an elderly couple with limited mobility, and changing hotels would have been stressful... More

I checked into this establishment around 5pm on Sunday. Started washing clothes in the laundry room, which had water all over the floor from the ice machine, and then went to my room. The overall appearance wasn't very clean (tables & floor had something sticky on them, bed sheets stained, etc.), but I'm not 1 to complain much so I... More

The Manager was defensive and nssty when I told him how horrible my stay was due to how filthy the room accommodations were. The beds had blood and scum stains on them. The towels were dingy and had marks. The wash cloths were filthy as well.
