“Terrified.”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 14, 2013 via mobile

We walked into our room, only to discover semen all over the walls and beds. The elevator is probably illegal, and the pool area is not good at all. My son and I walked down to the pool and found that the hot tub was filled with a yellow liquid. There was something growing on our ceiling, and the hotel is very unsafe. Please choose otherwise, but there is a good view of the mountains.

I cannot believe that this is REALLY a Howard Johnson Hotel. Something is very wrong here. Here are my reasons:
1. The telephone in the room had buttons missing and did not work.
2. The desk staff did not know the correct WiFI code
3. There was no room rate list on the back of the front door and no escape route in case of fire.
4 There was no exhaust fan in the bathroom.
5. The towels felt like sand paper they were so old. I used wash cloths to dry off,
6. The breakfast was unappetizing and the coffee was dreadful

From this experience I have learned to NEVER let my husband choose our hotels/motels. The reviews were clear that this place would never meet our needs.

Room Tip: My tip is find a different hotel.
