Let's face it, if you are staying at the Howard Johnson in Beckley, you're almost certainly stopping on your way to somewhere else. For that purpose, it's fine. I didn't notice anything unusually disgusting, the air conditioning worked, and there were clean sheets, towels and a shower.
What was a little gross was our carpet was moist. It's one of those old school red floral carpets so it's anyone's guess what the moisture was. As others mentioned, even in non-smoking rooms there is a smell. Perhaps the carpets were cleaned recently and that explains both the moisture and smell?
The rooms are far from sound proof and if someone is in the next room you will hear literally every word they say, so this is not a great hotel for trading industrial secrets or espionage. You also hear everyone in the hallway, so it's semi-difficult to go to bed until everyone checks in. Do everyone else a favor when walking down the hall, and don't start telling your funniest jokes or tell your kids to scream or anything.
Check in was fast, in fact they didn't even ask for IDs or credit cards, we just got our key and went to our room!
