I was not going to do a review on this Inn as I guess I got what I paid for. However, the reviews on their web site were decent, so I took a chance as it was where I wanted to be. It turned out to be one of the worst experiences ever at an Inn. We were checked into... More

This hotel is just terrible! Never ever will stay again. Shower curtain rod was broke, the bathroom door had no lock. They only gave us TWO towels for 4 people. The hallway ceiling looked like it was about to fall in. And the breakfast was terrible. The pool water was dingy and green and I refused to let my son... More

I understand that $36 a night is a really low price but I guess you get what you pay for with Howard Johnson in Petersburg, Virginia. This was probably the worst stay I have ever had at a hotel. I do not recommend this hotel to anyone. On about day 2 of our 6 day stay I started logging down... More

We did not get clean towels on two different days.We were not able to use the pool on our 10 day stay and it was very hot. The room was not cleaned daily. Most days the towel on the back of the bathroom floor was not taken. The breakfast was not very good, I am diabetic and was only offered... More

A cancelled NASCAR event that was rescheduled for the following day in Richmond, VA caused a N0 vacancy situation an hour north and south of Richmond. We were heading to Myrtle Beach and encountered this predicament just north of Richmond. It was suggested to us to start looking again when we get to Petersburg. VA. The first motel we stopped...
