After a long tiring drive we arrived at this Howard Johnson to a room that had mysterious smell that lingered in the hallways and room. After checking in they moved us to a first floor room that had everything you never wanted to see in a hotel room. The sheets were dirty, the towels were VERY thin and the bath mat was ripped in two sections. The air conditioning unit had more lint/rust/mold in it then my clothes dryer has after a load of clothes. The iron board cover was so dirty (to the point that it should of been thrown out) and the dirt on the ironing board was unbelievable. Air dryer was half off the wall and hanging by the cords over the sink. A unique addition to the room was a kleenex doorstopper. There was a hole in the wall and a kleenex had been the filled in the hole. Martha Stewart would be proud!
It is unbelievable that this place is still open but I assume with the travelers going south or returning home it is a convenient place to exit and spend the night. The positive thing to note is that the staff were very friendly and helpful with directions . Other plus was the breakfast, coffee with juice and toast was very helpful but truthfully I will most certainly inform anyone going this way to not stop in here. Sleeping in the car would make much more sense.
