Emergency stay

Looks like project housing. Smells bad, noise from highway, bad lit parking area, no working ice machine. Moldy bathroom. I thought I woke in a third world country. Only stay there as a last resort.

Business Stay

This hotel by far was one of the worst hotels that I have ever stayed in. First off, right at the front entrance is a sewer manhole. It smelt like death walking into the building. Once in the building, it looked old and worn. The staff did not have Howard Johnson uniform on and did not greet us. I have a torn rotator cuff and asked where the elevator was so that I can get my stuff up to my room (212). The elevator is actually up a flight of stairs to get to the elevator. (if i would have known that, I would have never stayed there) Going up to the room, the elevator and hallways are damp and smelly. When I got to the Room (Non-Smoking) It smelled of smoke, there were cigarette burns on the bathroom sink and in the comforter. It looked as if kids wrote all over the walls. The ceiling was cracked. There was a hole in the wall. My wife went to use the hair dryer and it was filthy. Looked like it hadn't been clean in weeks and the actual remote to the TV was filthy. We had to go across the street to a Dollar Tree and get alcohol to wipe down the hairdryer and remote and everything else. Overall, this was one of the WORST, if not, WORST hotel that I have ever stayed in.

Sleep required

Room was noisy. Could hear next door guest talking or snoring all night long. Mattress was well used, no support.

Disappointing

This hotel was not as advertised. Ice machines on every floor were broken and looked to have been for a long time. We were told to go across the street to buy ice from a store. thin walls so we could hear the people in the next room. dirty bathroom, I had to clean it. Hard bed and ac was not working well.

Dirty And disappointed

We were unhappy with the dirty condition of the room And while they did have a pool and I guess a Jacuzzi and sauna we were not able to get near it because of the loud groups of teens who were using them We had to park her car by a gravel pit scale and the whole area was in the midst of a gravel pit. Every ice machine was broken and we were told to go across the street and buy ice. The room was filthy And no refrigerator as promised I will say the young man who checked us in and did seem pleasant and did help us get a refrigerator for the room

Lower than a 1 star

This hotel was disgusting. There were stains and burn holes in the comforter. A hair in the bed. The toilet seat was damaged. I was afraid to stay alone and immediately checked out. Didn't even stay one night! I would never recommend on any circumstances!!!

Ok

It wasn't too bad. I just didn't like how outdated everything was. It could've been a little bit more cleaner. The hotel associates were great thought.
