We booked this hotel on booking.com thinking it was going to have same high standard as Regina Howard Johnson. Wrong assumption. This place is disgusting and we got the impression it was most likely the kind of scummy establishment rented by the hour. It was supposed to be smoke free however the room reeked of smoke. There were burn marks in carpet and on bed spread. The pillow cases had mascara/make up on them not sure if stained or just not washed. We were in room only a few mins and I started coughing and getting runny nose from allergies. I did not have puffer or allergy meds and knew we would not sleep on the terribly warped matress. after hauling our stuff in room we ended up packing it all up back into car. We went to office and said we did not want to stay and described room. The old moldy dirty wall air conditioner was a disgusting health hazzard. The guy at desk said he would call manager. The manager MunMun refused to refund our money. I calledbookibg.com and they refused to help. I then called the manager directly only to be hung up on. We decided to leave anyway and cut our losses. We stayed at another hotel that night which was lovely and clean. The next morning booking.com sent email saying they were reversing the charge for the night not spent at the Howard Johnson.
Don't go there as worse than any third world lodging I have ever stayed at and manager of hotel a complete slum boss.
