Howard Johnson Hotel - Milford/New Haven

1.5 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

Carpet thorough cleaning required. Close to highway, restaurants, pharmacy and market.

The staff was very nice and the food at friendlys was amazing!

Pleasant extended stay. Room with a view. Close to restaurants and shopping. Convinient to all major highways.

Why is the tv so loud in the next room? I can still hear the action. Don't people realize every knows and bad timing, right in the middle of the afternoon.smh. didn't know I was on that sort of place, a little unexpected. Otherwise no problem.

I've never been to a hotel as nasty as this place. The sheets had hair and what appeared to be make up on them but the bed was made up.on the headboard someone left pot. The bathroom had feces on the walls and shower area was filthy. The rugs was nasty and had bad odor.I requested another RM and that was no better very disappointed!!!

Bedspread ripped, table wobbly unusable, dipping mattress, rusty bathroom heater, graffiti on bathroom door, moldy dirty molding in bathroom, looks out onto gravel pit.

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.

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.

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

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

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!!!

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.

Very inexpensive, great diner right next door, clean, friendly staff, pool. Dirty hallway carpets need replacing, but overall good stuff. Will DEFinitely return.

It was close to the hwy and will work for just stopping in , but it was really outdated and had a pretty bad smell do to allowing pets .

Great had good time no vending machines though on coke machine

The only thing good about this hotel is the heated pool and Friendlys next door.

I have stayed here many times and I have enjoyed my stay each time

Staff was friendly and courteous. Hotel was convenient to major highways. Hotel itself was a little run down in appearance - furniture scratched/dented - and not maintained well - used towels left in piles in the hallways, carpets not vacuumed. Had to walk through the icky smoking corridor to get to my non-smoking room. Room did NOT have a refrigerator and microwave as advertised. Also didn't have an ironing board and iron, which is standard equipment in all hotels now.

it was clean and staff was friendly. great location

It's in a great location. A lot of shopping and restaurants around. Staff was very nice and helpful.
