I thought the whole place was spooky and dirty! The bathroom was beaten up. The bed was uncomfortable. There was a drug addict standing by my door, most of the night. I finally, got out of bed and left about midnight.

This property was probably the bees knees back in the 80's, rooms probably went for 2-3 times what we paid. Unfortunately, this property is now part of Wyndhams 'value' catalog. * Room had too much (useless) furniture (a giant desk and only one chair), the (empty, unbolted, also useless) clothes armoire almost fell over on my daughter, scorch marks on...

Outside building looked nice. At first glance room looked good. Beds were comfy, but we were shocked at the state of the rest of the room. We got a no smoking room with cigareet burn holes on the bed blanket. One bed light lamp didn't work. Tv cabinet had tape goo all over where each drawer was taped probably during...

We were very disappointed. We have always had good luck with Wyndham and Howard Johnson, but I can not give this place as much as one star. It was dirty, the lobby even smelled and there wasn't even a smoke detector. we should have cut our loses and left but were just to tiered to look for something else. also...

As a budget traveler, I typically don't expect much beyond a room to sleep & shower in. However, some details matter. First, there appeared to be some kind of construction going on all around the property. No big deal since it suggests improvement. With no signs to help us find the office at night, we had to circle around the...

Imagine a post apocalyptic world where precious gems are the only commodity left. People from far and wide make the arduous journey to trade their gems.. to survive.. to live. And at the epicenter of that trading center is the Howard Johnson's Motel where the remains of this frenetic and oft times savage trading occurs... right outside your motel door,...

Worst place I've ever stayed. Dirt everywhere. Trash (old newspapers, olc cups, food wrappers, etc.etc.) in the loby, in the rooms, in the parking lot and in the pool Which was greenish. Caked dirt in the corners of the bathroom and room. One guest came to the desk and asked that a mattress be put in his room (there wasn't...

Used Wyndham points to make this reservation. I've travelled undeveloped third world countries but never stayed like this. There were furniture and mattresses in the parking lot. The room was filthy - drawers missing, dirt and debris on the floor, dirt on the chairs, floor lamp with bare wires stuck in the outlet. The pool was lined with pond scum...
