Very last minute, my boyfriend his best friend and I decided to go on a trip to Niagara. My boyfriend decided he really wanted to do the whole heart shaped tub thing so he booked the room at the Howard Johnson.
When we arrived at the hotel the staff were kind enough to allow us an early check in but we needed to wait an hour for the room to be cleaned which was fine. Once we got into the room we noticed the tub had a very weird white film in it, we called down and they sent the cleaning staff back up to address it. We booked a room with a king size bed and the bed in the room was very clearly a Queen. I think it was advertised incorrectly. When I laid on the bed I noticed the ceiling was mirrored. Which was a bit of a surprise....a funny surprise.
When we returned to the room in the evening we noticed that the ceiling was leaking. Which is around the time that I wanted to check out. We were moved to another room where the ceiling didn't leak and the there was no white film in the tub.
In the morning I really wasn't all that interested in having a shower...the shower kind of scared me.
All in all, would I stay there again, no. The staff were nice, the room was clean (but felt dirty even though it was clean) The guys had a great time though and they would both stay again.
I think maybe the hotel was just a little dated for me?
