Given the price we paid for the room, I wasn't expecting the Taj Mahal, but I certainly was not prepared for how awful this hotel was! I am shocked that the Howard Johnson chain allows it's name to be associated to such a dump! The room was dingy and stinky! There was no microwave and the TV did not work - cable cord had been ripped out of the back of the TV. When we asked one of the staff to please repair it he said he would check the 'storeroom' for the part it needed... he then yelled across the property that they didn't have it!
The carpet was filthy, the tub was not disgusting and there were large wet spots by the bed - I don't want to know what that was!!
To top it all off, there is woman who lives in the end unit and wanders the parking lot asking guests for cigarettes... she was quite irate when we told her we don't smoke!!
Do yourself a huge favour - pay the extra few bucks to stay somewhere else! This place is NASTY!!!!
