I was so disappointed with our stay. I complained to the front desk person
and she said the Manager would contact us in the a.m. He did not.
We left as soon as we could and tried to contact him while driving and he
was not there.
Even the front doors needed paint, they were scratched and a mess. We should have left upon seeing this mess.
We slept in our clothes for fear we would catch something.
We did not stay for breakfast.
I will be contacting Howard Johnson corporate this week to tell of our horrid
experience.

The room and bath were not very clean and had an unpleasant odor. there had been a electrical problem that had burned out part of an electrical receptacle so the lights between the beds was not plugged in. There were towels, but no washcloths in the room. The parking space was muddy. I appreciated the breakfast, it was the best feature of our stay.

After having stayed at this location in 2010, my boyfriend and I decided to re-book a room there for our anniversary this past week. When we got there, we noticed that the bathroom was in desperate need of repair - chipped paint in the shower, black mold spotting the shower curtain. The coffee pot on the sink was also filthy, and it was clear it hadn't been properly cleaned in quite some time. I made the mistake of walking around without shoes and socks on the carpet, which also hadn't been cleaned in quite some time, leaving me with stained, black soles. The air conditioning left a very sticky feeling in the room when left on. We also found a dead Earwig in our bed, along with small black spots, as well as holes in the blankets. Parking at night was over crowded and nearly impossible. Overall, not a pleasant experience. The one positive thing I will say is that the staff was very friendly, however we will not be staying at this location in the future.
