“Do not Book HOWARD JOHNSON INN DELAND”
Reviewed March 8, 2011

I don't have words to describe this hotel. I am not the type of person that write reviews but I feel obligated to do it, so other people don't go through a bad experience. I went during the bike week in Daytona when we got there the check in was fast. The room was awful. Beds looked sooo dirty that you did not even want to sit on them. The sheets had holes. The sink was dirty. I saw a couple of bugs. The room smell like cigarette. Extremely, overpriced for what we got. I do not recomment this hotel at all.

I actually booked this Hotel with Expedia and did not read the reviews on here first but read then after and was a little worried. When we arrived (1 day early) the desk clerk was a little miffed as she evidently hate racing and we were there to cover the racing for the Media. She gave us a room for 68 and she made it our room for the continuation of our stay (Very nice, so we didn't have to move.

I got the other 3 nights with Expedia for $40/night....we got room 252, we walked in. The room was very clean, shower had very hot water and great water pressure and the overall experience was totally fine. I am not sure what the other traveler's deal was but maybe they are used to the Hilton or something........it was a very nice $40/night Hotel and I would stay there again in a second.

If you go about 6 miles there is every store you could imagine near Speedway Blvd too!

We booked ahead, got a lousy dirty room. Bathtub was filthy with foot dirt, The toilet had puke down the side of it. Saw a German cockroach run up the wall. Towels were ripped and yellow/tan. Just dirty, dirty. Had a dog with us, grass area had all kinds of junk around including glass and "insulin" type needles. We were treated rudely when we asked for a downstairs room or one closer to the stairs. Beds were made, but room was not vacuumed between nights. This could be a nice hotel but they have totally run it down. Drive a little further to Deltona, our friends stayed at the Best Western there and loved it, I know we will next time!

Worst hotel experience of my 59 years. Front desk employee refused to register my friend's family and mine as she"had worked 12 hours, was busy and can't do it all. Lobby was empty and few cars in parking lot at 6:30 pm. we were told people without reservations were to be patient, then said "I will not be registering any more guests until my relief comes in at 7:00 pm, and then he can do some of this work . when relief worker came, he said well, she's been working for 12 hrs" our rooms were dirty, with apparent mold in 254"s bathroom, and a quarter sized burn hole in my daughter's bottom sheet. TV remote didn't work, even pen was dry. Breakfast stale.Hojo no "mo!

Arrived and within 2 minutes of entering our room we checked out!! This is the most disgusting hotel I have ever seen. It looks like a very dangerous place and I would never let my children stay in such a place. Pulling up to the hotel we had the worst, most uncomfortable vibe and we are glad we trusted our instincts because it was already the worst experience we have ever encountered. The front desk woman said they were having a biker benefit that day and the resturant was not a biker bar. But with fixed "biker parking only" signs we knew different! I wish I would have read the reviews on this hotel before booking. Howard Johnson should be very ashamed to be associated with this place. We booked this room through Expedia and now are having trouble getting a refund becaused the general manager keeps hanging up on them when they call. We had a scary man with no shoes or shirt peering in our window as soon as we walked in! We didn't even have our bags down when we looked at each other and said "We're not staying here!!" The room smelled horrible and the entire hotel should be shut down!! Be careful, please don't stay here!

We stayed for a few nights while visiting a relative. The location for what we needed was the only good thing about this motel. Most people would be disappointed that it is out in the middle fo nowhere. What you don't see in their picture is that the hotel is attached to a bar which puts a heavy focus on attracting bikers. At night there was loud, bad, live "music" outside until very late. One day the maid inexplicably took away our towels and bathmat and didn't give us any clean ones. The free breakfast was never stocked-- when a dozen people were waiting, the clerk brought out only six bagels and a few mini donuts at a time. The coffee urns were usually empty; when we asked for more, it took a long time to brew it and the amount was inadequate for all the guests who were waiting. There was one ice machine for the whole motel and it never had ice when we wanted it. My husband broke out in a rash and I have been itching all over since our stay. Hopefully it was harsh detergent and not bugs! I wish I had read the other reviews first, but like everyone else, I thought they were exaggerated and that the motel could not be that bad. I was wrong-- it was.

This hotel is the most disgusting hotel, I've ever stayed seen or stayed in. I wish that I had gone with my first instinct to leave, or sleep in my car. I was in Deland for a STATE TEST, along with many others. I will make this simple: I awoke to bed bugs that I thought were ticks crawling on the walls & across my bed & pillow. I did not see any of this before I went to bed. I checked real well when I pulled back the covers. I don't know where the bed bugs were when I went to bed, but they were there when I awoke. I have pictures, videos and witnesses that were there with me. I have never been more horrified and discusted in my life. I had to place all my belongings in a plastic bag, because bed bugs can be carried into your car & into your home when you return. The experience almost caused me to falter on my STATE EXAM. I had to sit for four hours while tetsing until I could leave drive 2-1/2 hours home straight to a CVS & buy specific detergent & hair products to take all precautions not to carry the bug into my home. I am contacting the Dept of Business & Professionals of Hotels & Motels, BBB, FDLE, HJ's corporate.
