Stay at any hotel but this one - at any price it's a dive. You can get much better and for less money too.
First let me say, I thought I was booking the hotel next door - the Woodcrest Hotel. As it turns out, this was the ancient Howard Johnsons. Apparently, it was purchased a few years ago but absolutely nothing has been done to repair or maintain it.
The bed was somewhat comfortable - I've slept on worse. Although the sheets were clean (I think) they didn't fit the bed so they didn't stay in place. The pillows were the sorriest things I've ever seen!
The door of the bathroom had a hole in it. One of the mirrors wasn't completely there. The walls were dirty. The carpet was dirty. The cable TV reception was bad but we weren't there to watch TV. There was something I think was lint but it looked like a dead rat on the stairs.
One electrical outlet didn't work. One outlet didn't have a cover - hmm probably could have sued?
It took 15 minutes to get warm water in the shower - hot was another 15.
The only thing that kept us here for a second night was the thought of lugging stuff up another set of stairs - this one was 4 flights up.
Like I said, stay anywhere but here!!!
