Room wasn't up to standard.

Phone didn't work and no alarm clock. Ceiling in room and hallways had water damage. One section of the hall way was very trashy. Carpet in room needed replaced.

Renovation = Cheap and Dingy

Hotel is super cheap -- best part. It's also being remodeled because it really needs it. The rooms are dingy: water spots on ceilings, spots in tub, scary looking carpet, a hole in the wall, old lamps, etc. That said, sheets were fine, bed was comfy, and staff was very friendly. For the money, it was definitely worth it, and when you think about it, a run-down room is still just a room. I'd stay there again in a second because it's so cheap. On our hallway about half the rooms were empty for remodeling -- which gave the hotel a creepy vibe, but it was fine.

Easy to find location - value matches price

A good stay - but the construction needs to be completed, otherwise it's a mess outside and the rooms are booked in the back of the property :) It'll be much nicer when it's completed I'm sure!

Needs serious work done

Checked out shortly after checking in. Room had a musty, damp smell and there were no light fixtures in the bathroom. Shower wall had a large crack in it. The area appeared to be run down. Vent covers were not secure to the building. However, the guy at the front desk was very friendly and professional. The hotel needs a lot of work. It also seemed like people lived there. Which is not a quality I look for when I choose a hotel for a vacation.

worst hotel I have ever stayed in

The smell when we first entered was a moldy, old smell. tehre were wet spots on the ceiling in our room. The bathroom had no courtesy soap or shampoo. There was mold all over the shower. I rented 3 rooms. The last time I ever stay at a Howard Johnson. I am so disgusted and disappointed. The staff didn;t do a thing to make the stay better or even try to make it at all pleasing.

Old Boys weekend

Stayed here for 4 nights since it was cheap, but if given another chance will stay elsewhere. Even though it is cheap, it is a $25 cab ride from downtown (one-way). The facilities are in very poor condition. I think there may have been bed bugs...

not good experience

The room had roaches .also the bathroom ceiling looked as if it was Chung to fall down at ant moment. The hotel itself had things wrong. It had water leaking from the ceiling on the way to the lobby. Also the exercise room had part of the room covered as if it was not finished. The whole place had a dirty atmosphere about. It.
