My husband and I are originally from Liberty NY and traveled up there for the weekend of March 21st for a family event. We decided to rent a room rather than impose on family. We made our reservation on Howard Johnson's site but when we got there they had no record of it, fortunately we had our confirmation page. The posted room rate at the hotel was less than the rate with our supposed discount on the internet!! The area does suffer from a lot of deteriorating buildings so the run down appearance wasn't too upsetting, though this should have been another warning sign. Office staff seemed friendly.
On Saturday morning we left a ten dollar tip for the maid and instructions just to make up the bed, don't bother changing the sheets, and give us fresh towels. When we returned around 6 pm we saw no one had been to our room. My husband was told that they only change the towels and do the rooms every other day, and today was not that day!! And we were reluctantly given fresh towels!! Now we understand that some hotels are trying to conserve water and resources, however there was no sign in the room indicating this. I make my own bed at home every day, who wants to do that when you are PAYING for a room? I have never stayed at a hotel where they didn't AT LEAST make up the room.
In case this sounds picky, try dealing with the loud, argumentative sounding people in the parking lot and then up and down the hallway, slamming doors for about an hour after midnight.
This hotel should not have the Howard Johnson name. If it had been my first stay at a Howard Johnson, I would never consider another in the chain.
Do not stay here!! If no service is ok with you, try camping!
