Recent guest reviews

Water leaked from fridge all over floor, dirty washcloth left in shower, large open gap to outside under window above air con unit

The road leading to Hotel was in poor condition with pot holes over one foot deep. Had the impression I was driving on a road in a third world country. Overall is was well worth the cost.

When I arrived the elevator had trash in it. The room smelled, the parking lot and facility was outdated and poorly kept with potholes. The bathtub was stained and dirty looking but it was actually just badly worn. The TV looked like a 21 or so inch placed on the wall. The refrigerator, microwave and everything was worn and outdated. For the 3 day stay you saw people in the lot which didn't make you feel safe or that you would want your wife and children around. The police were constantly searching with helicopters and had patrol cars pulling people over in the neighborhood. Often the police were in the lot. It felt like a war zone. I was there for 3 days of training for lawyers at another hotel which was sold out and traveled to the other hotel and back. Often you couldn't even sleep for the loud behavior going on other rooms and outside. This was the cheapest selection I had at the last minute with Orbitz. The car and flight was fine but this hotel was the worst place I had stayed in for 30 years. I had no problems with the staff which tried to be helpful but this place is not even safe or sanitary and is dilapidated. .

Close to shops, and attractions. Spacious and Comfortable.

Place is not clean housekeeping doesn't get there too late and they attract the worst kind of people

Very noisy house keepers didn't clean emptied trash cans and didn't leave any soap or coffee

room was very disappointing. The sheets, bathroom, and water didn't look very clean. no fridge and air conditioning was giving off a musty smell. The TV was an antique. The mattress was uncomfortable. The ice machine near us was totally broken so we had to walk over to the lobby (other building) to get ice. The road to get to the hotel is bumpy and rough on the car and hard to find. The also gave me an unexpected "service" fee for some reason even though I didn't feel serviced at all.

it was ok but will not stay again. dirty rooms, small towels, not clean at all, tried to charge for breakfast after the site said it was included, also made us pay a resort fee for some reason

I had a reservation to a Non Smoking room and they gave me a Smoking one because they didn't have an available room. The room was clean but outside the room, the surroundings were totally dirty and with garbage. It was unpleasant. The hotel was dated. The bed was good at least.

the floor was dirty, the odor was terrible cigarette all the time.

First room had a plugged sink. Asked for a different room. I'll give them that, the staff was great in assisting that and made it happen. Next room the bathroom door literally was hanging on with one hinge, and was held in with drywall screws. The rooms have never ever been updated over however many years since it was new. I'm guessing the 70's. I would choose not to stay there again.

Every night we could not sleep because of the bathroom noise! We changed room and still listen the loud noise!

hotel was in gross there were old mattress in the hall no hotel security and it was very dirty

The room smell and bed was sunk in the middle everything was old and out dated ice bunket was old and dirty

You get what you pay for. Don't expect 5 stars for a 2 star price

Very old - needs remodeling or tearing down. Bathroom disgusting. Floor at entrance door rotting under the carpet. TV is a cable connection to only over the air channels. Top off the noise till 1am Our car's gas tank was siphoned dry.

my stay was good, when i first got there i didnt realize i payed for a smoking room by mistake, i was told there were no more non smoking rooms at that time, and that one would be available the following day, the next day i was giving a new room with no problems, the non smoking room was much cleaner than the smoking room, i had a good stay for the price, pool was very clean, there was free use of computers in lobby, wifi in room wasn't great, about 20 mins drive to all theme parks,

Staff was great. Issues I had: light in bathroom was dim, no fridge, water quality (smell of iron sulfate). The ice maker I used fell apart when I got ice. I notified the staff and it got fixed right away. The wifi would not work with my iPad although it did with my laptop. For the amount of time I spent here, well worth it.

The mattress are worn. It felt like I was going to roll out of bed

Awful unless you like drug deals being made under your window, music blaring from the flea market next door at 6 am, dirty rooms, garbage all around the parking lot, long term residents of the hotel who scream and fight at all hours of the day and night. AC units were old and worked intermittently, they leaked water all over the walkways which made it slippery and dangerous to walk on. Ice machines rarely worked. Rooms were messy and rarely were hotel staples replenished. My non-smoking room reeked like cigarettes as well. You get what you pay for and much less at this Hotel. They should NOT be allowed to use the Howard Johnson name at all. What a disgrace!!!!
