The experience as a whole was ok my room was clean but outside of the rooms were horrible. The front area where breakfast is serve was very dirty but the employees along with the manager there was excellent

Decent stay & clean towels ; good for pop ins when going into town for vacations / holidays . Breakfast was ok - waffles , muffins, cereal , & orange juice & the nonsmoking rooms were fresh. Easily approachable staff & convenience of location to be near burger places & gas stations

Overall the stay was nice. The room was clean and the staff friendly. They were very willing to accomidate us. Planning on staying there again our next time through.

Very easy access to freeway. Employees very friendly.

The check in staff at Howard Johnson Express in Iowa La. was excellent. That is where the good review stops. The sink did not work. There were no wash clothes in the room. There was no breakfast served (only juice and coffee) The housekeeping staff just threw out linens and sheets in the hallway with all the trash from the rooms. This made it impossible to navigate the hallways with luggage and was very unpleasant sight and smell. The room was stinky. Everything was unplugged upon our arrival(clocks, lamps, TV) Find a different Hotel to stay in or just keep driving to a different city.
