“My Stay at the HJ”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed 2 weeks ago

First time I ever stayed at the H.J., I was pleasantly surprised. A little better house cleaning (the bedding), and more modern television plus channel viewing would be a big improvement.

We stayed here and it was dirty everything in the room seemed old or worn out the TV was broken we told the desk after a long wait the man came with a new one. He got it out of the wear house of broken things it didn't work . Now its getting late and the NCAA basketball games are over. He couldn't speak English but he understood forget it.We slept in the worn out sheets ate the token breakfast and left an vowed never to return.

This was the worse hotel I have ever stayed at.. I always stay at Howard Johnsons and this one should not have that name. We walked in the room there were dead roaches on the floor, the ceiling and wall patches jobs looked horrible, the toilet had rust all over the pipe, the blow dryer did not work, and yes I plugged it in and checked the gfi and still didn't work, There was no remote and I didn't want to get ice because the machines did not look oh so kept up. I know this is a older hotel but they need some attention!

Very nice people. The attendant was very well informed and very helpful. The place has recently come under some renovation. The room was nice and clean and there were lots of accommodations in the area. I recommend this place and will stay here again for sure.

Room Tip: Front side rooms are little better than back.

Keep on going to the next place. Pulled up and in the parking lot was a huge, empty, "circus" tent with literally no way to drive around it- but the hotel room was directly behind the tent, so no way to keep your vehicle in sight from your room. Also- literally every door was broken down and all of the mattresses were flipped off of the beds and broken beer bottles everywhere. During check in- the "Indoor Marquis" was even misspelled- "welcome to howa jonsun" This place is a joke. All vending machines were sold out and the ice maker didn't work. Went to the office and asked for a bottle of water and was turned down. Serious. This place is filthy. Spend ten more bucks and go down the road, or even sleep in a dumpster on the side of the road would be more flattering.

Stayed February 2015, traveled as a couple

Bobby P, Manager at Howard Johnson Tucson Inn - Downtown, responded to this review, March 3, 2015
Thank you for taking time to write a review regarding your recent stay. First, let me apologize for the inconvenience you experienced as our guest. Second, I am pleased to let you know that we have addressed the concerns that you expressed. For two weeks near the start of every year Howard Johnson becomes part of world's largest international gem and mineral trading show, Tucson Gem and Mineral Show. Unfortunately during your recent stay we were in the middle of cleaning up after the show. I fully understand your frustration in this matter. I apologize again for the inconvenience.
