1 of 5 stars Reviewed April 2, 2014

non smoking room smelled like smoke there was trash and dust behind the dresser and stains on the blanket. We had to go down and complain about the room so they moved us to another room which was a lil nicer than the first one. The door did not latch correctly so you had to slam the door. Thank gosh I took cleaning wipes with me cause I had to pretty much wipe the whole room down. When we went to get a shower in the morning there was no hot water so we complained about that and they said that there just was a lot of people staying at the hotel that is why we didn't have hot water. There was pieces of the roof coming off and the paint on the building was peeling. If you are looking for a dump to sleep in this is your place!!!!!!!

The Howard Johnson in Roanoke, VA has seen better days. I stayed for 2 nights when volunteering in the area for the weekend; my room was paid by the organization I was helping.

Postives: The linens on the bed were clean. The bed was acceptable. Price was low. Room had a microwave and refrigerator/freezer. Great location next to interstate.

Negatives: Refrigerator and freezer doors were open; freezer had 2 inch thick layer of frost that prevented the door from closing. Stained carpets. Holes in the wall. No clock. TV cables strung in the air with a hole drilled in an interior wall. TV was unplugged both days by housekeeping in order to plug in their vacuum; however, they didn't plug the TV back in (shows the general attitude of the place). I got soap but no shampoo the first night; the second night housekeeping left me shampoo but no soap (and took away the remainder of the bar from the previous night). Room had a safe that had the lock mechanism punched out. Bright light outside room and thin curtains.
