Booked room for employees @ HoJo on MacLeod Trail in Calgary Alberta. Our employees walked into the room. It was so filthy, disgusting & smelly they turned around, went to the front desk & said they could not stay in that room because of the condition. They were not offered another room. One employee was willing to stay in another employees garage on an army cot rather than sleep at the Howard Johnson. Howard Johnson charged $699.00 on my company cr card even though the guys were there for maybe 10 minutes and left. Spoke to the manager, she was very rude and said they would not reverse that charge. Phone head office but not sure what they could do. I understand from the receptionist the rude manager that I spoke to
owns this hotel so nothing will change. We will never book our guys into a Howard Johnson again because of the Macleod Trail location

Room Tip: Never ever stay at this location!

My stay in this hotel was disgusting! The place is a dump; stay away. It is poorly maintained, poorly arranged or laid out, uncomfortable, smelled musty or moldy, was visibly dirty ... and more. The so-called breakfast provided as part of the stay is a joke - dry toast, cereal, juice and coffee. The parking lot is cramped and dangerous to get in/out. Stay away!!!!!
