The property was very clean, the room was very clean also.It was very quiet, and we had a couple of good nights of rest. Even though this is an older Howard Johnson's, it was very clean no litter on the grounds at anytime.The staff was professional and friendly. We felt valued. Room didn't have any odors. The bed was comfortable. The desk chair was new and comfortable the other chair was dated, BUT for the price you couldn't beat the place. We will be back if we have a need for this area.

The room was very clean. The refrigerator and microwave worked. And the convenience of the coffee maker was right on time.

IT WAS VERY WELL PUT TOGETHER, ROOM WAS NICE AND CLEAN, TOWELS WE'RE IN ORDER,I WILL BE STAYING AGAIN.

I thought the pet fee was $15.00 I was charged $20.00, other than that, it was a nice hotel visit.

NO plunger on the whole property, really?!?!?! Went to the front desk and the lady was no help.

Extremely poor maintenance. Dirty. Dingy. Dead bugs on the wall. Ruined carpet with huge stains not cleaned well. Lumpy pillows. No concessions for the handicapped. Much litter on the ground. Plastic pool chairs have not been cleaned in a long time. Electric sockets did not charge digitals over night. But good hot water in the dirty bathtub.

The room was very nice, looked and smelled clean. The bed was very comfortable with adequate pillows. The bathroom was equipped with enough basic supplies for 2 people who were staying for one night. The TV shows were easy to navigate using the remote, and it was quick to log on to the WIFI. Internet connection was a little bit slow during the night, though. The AC was a little loud every time it came on. The water temperature was difficult to adjust because the faucet knob wasn't easy to use. We went down to the breakfast room at about 8am but the foods were almost gone. Breakfast time was from 6am to 9am. We tried the waffles and they tasted sour so we had to throw them to the garbage. The staff refilled the biscuits while we were in the breakfast room, and they were gone after a few minutes and there were no more refills of anything while we were in the breakfast room, even though all the pitchers of juice were empty. the coffee and tea were substantial, though..

I booked one thing and they gave me another enough said bad buisness

This was our 2nd time staying at the Dothan Howard Johnson. We chose this motel again since it was close to our doctors office and was a great experience back in May. This time it wasn't up to par. We were put in a room that at first appeared just fine, when we got into the room we then noticed the holes in the wall. One was repaired recently (no paint) and the other was opened near the light switch. The bathtub would not drain and it appeared to be clogged up with white soap scum. I tried to remove it myself but it wouldn't come up. The chair had stains from who knows what and I wouldn't dare sit in it or put my belongings in it. The bed linens were clean and the bed comfortable, but stark contrast to our previous stay. I hope that they can make the necessary repairs soon.

Towels were different types/colors. TV old and didn't work without remote - odd. Overall clean just needs some serious updating. Motel 6 down the street and closer to town on 31.99. Stay there first.

it was good for work but they need to do some updates or come down on the price a littlw

Well appointed room in away from highway noise, and the overall appearance was very good. Two drawbacks: The worst was a very strong mildew odor in the bathroom. Second was no housekeeping provided while I was out. I had to get my own towels and what not from the service cart outside. One minor item, when asked for additional coffee for the in room coffee maker, I received 3 packs of creamer. Check the bathroom first before unpacking.

Got in later than I expected due to the tropical storm, but the staff was friendly, courteous and acted like it was perfectly normal. The room was clean and crisp! The coffee maker didn't work, but that was ok, because there was always coffee in the lobby. When I left, I told the front desk and they were very apologetic. Planning another quick trip there soon, will probably stay here again.

Clean room, friendly staff. Breakfast was average.

The hotel was clean, the staff courteous. Often, however, there was no one at the front desk, and no way to alert them that I was there. THey were never far, though.Overall, my experience was great. I'll stay there again when I return to Dothan in July.

Hotel did not honor reservation and tried "bait and switch" to gain a $10 per day surcharge. Two rooms we were shown had filthy bathrooms (fecal matter in one). [...]You must not ever stay at this hotel!!![...]
