I am a driver out of Chicago Il. Got stranded for a couple of days due to engine failure, needed a room for a reasonable price, decent privacy and comfort. I was referred to the people over at Howard Johnson from the shop where I was, thought that having a referral to them, gave proof that they where doing something... More

For $50 a night, you can't ask for much but this place was really poor. The room smelled bad, just everything about this place was poor. I stayed here before and that room wasn't as bad as room 145. Don't think I will try this place again

An old run down property that does not meet the minimums expected of a Howard Johnson hotel. When my wife checked in the property entrance was blocked by police. The room was poorly maintained. The breakfast did not include egg patty as advertised. My wife was not feeling up to eating in the lobby area, so I made her a... More

Was in Roanoke on business on a Thursday night, and this was the only hotel we could find with vacancies- turns out that there was a Virginia Tech game that night. I had read the reviews of this hotel, and didn't expect much for $39.95. It is old and run down. Bed was surprisingly comfortable. It would take a significant... More

Would not recommend staying here. Employees were friendly enough, but I had a cigarette hole in my pillow case, there was hair on the bathroom floor and the heating system smelled horrible. Around 3 AM a woman started screaming obscenities outside - this continued for a few minutes, then started up again about 10 minutes later, followed by an extremely... More

The hotel room was dirty. We needed a place to sleep for a few hours before traveling on. We should have gotten a refund and gone some where else. The sheets on one bed were dirty. The carpet and chairs were very badly stained and felt dirty. I did not let any of my things to touch any surface. I... More

Don't stay here. Just don't. Needed a place to sleep for a few hours before moving on to Pigeon Forge, TN. The only good comment that I can make is that the hotel was quiet. Almost everything is outdated and broken. I don't think even MAJOR renovations would help. It just needs to be raised.
