Howard Johnson Inn Dothan
Ranked #21 of 27 Hotels in Dothan
Reviewed December 20, 2008

I reserved the room on the HOJO website for 2 nights during Thanksgiving weekend. Got a great rate under 45.00 per night.
Wasn't sure what to expect, due to some of the negative reviews online from awhile back, but was I pleasantly surprised.
The Lobby was clean and beautifully decorated for the holidays, Tara, the front desk mgr was friendly, and answered all my questions about the area. I got checked in quickly.
My room was very Clean, spacious, tastefully designed after a recent renovation, (I was told by Tara) Microwave and Fridge were clean and worked well. The desk was large and very useful for me, as I had some writing to do. In between my visits with family, the housekeeping staff were very efficient.
My overall experience was positive and I'll definitely stay there again.

We actually didn't stay there due to what we saw when we arrived. We checked in and the staff was very nice. We got to our non-smoking, must cancel by 5 (we got there at 5:30) room and opened the door and we were hit by the smell of smoke. The room was not ready at all for us. The still full garbage was full of cigarettes, hence the smell, the beds were unmade, it was just a mess. We went back to the office and they said that the smell would be gone by the time they were able to clean it. They had no other rooms that would fit us. We got our refund with no problems and left.

I booked two rooms through Hotwire and called after the reservation to make sure I received non-smoking rooms. I spoke with the manager Sunny Patel and he said he would make sure we received non-smoking rooms. When we checked in we were placed in smoking rooms and the smell was awful. When we asked to be moved to other rooms they said that there were none available. There seemed to be alot of vacant rooms at the hotel that evening, so I asked the Manager Sunny Patel why he told me there were no vacant rooms. His response was that there were no vacant rooms under the Hotwire rate and that he would have had to charge us more to move us to other rooms.

I have stayed at this hotel every year for the last 4 and had no big issues so did not expect any this year. Checked in and the room I was given was being remodeled and clerk didn't even know it. Wanted another room and he said the only one was for more money. Made me feel guilty for booking the "cheap room". Said if I would have made the reservation with them instead of Hotels.com or something it would have been better. When I told him I made it through their website he gave me the room. New room smelled horrible like there was water damage and mold. was told only room left. Opened the door and it got better over an hour or so. Room was a mess, not vacuumed, dirt everywhere. When I went to heat up my dinner in the microwave about 8:00, opened it and found half eaten chicken with mold growing on it. GUESS WHERE THE SMELL WAS COMING FROM. I put it out on the sidewalk and room smelled better. Never again at this hotel.
