This as a filthy hotel

Posted Aug 25, 2014
Pros: The staff was nice.
Cons: This hotel needs to be demolished. It has seen its day and is an insult to mankind.
I checked out a day early and requested a receipt, I was denied a recipe and told expedia would send me a receipt. I want my day's money back for checking out early. I will never stay at a Howard Johnson's again. What a mess of a hotel this was.

Overnight stay for college day move-in

Posted Aug 24, 2014
Pros: Late arrival guarantee. The hotel personnel were personable and friendly.
Cons: The hotel is in DIRE NEED of major renovation and overhaul - carpet, furniture, wallpaper, everything!
Location: Located in Roanoke/Salem, Virginia.
Last minute decision to stay drive in the night before for college day move-in. Room rate was reasonable and in the vicinity of the college. The rooms were musty and damp. The carpet worn and torn. The wallpaper also worn and torn. The reclining chair in the room was ripped.

Great deal

Posted Aug 24, 2014
Pros: The location was close enough to my son's college to make it an easy drive at a huge savings over hotels closer to campus.
Cons: The bathroom showed the most wear. It was small and lacked a fan. Being clean made up for some of the age.
Location: The hotel is less than 30 minutes from Blacksburg, so it was an easy drive to campus.
This is an older hotel but the bed was comfortable and the breakfast was good. It would be hard to beat the price or the view of the mountains. I would go there again.

Excellent view, not so excellent breakfast...

Posted Aug 17, 2014
Decent room. Building could handle a little more maintenance. Breakfast was a buffet, would have traded the whole thing for a waffle maker and batter. They did have waffles I believe they were store brand and "rubbery", the biscuits(microwave) and gravy (hot in crock) were not bad, most everything was cold and not verry good. Staff was nice.

Worst hotel I ever stayed at.

Posted Aug 11, 2014
Pros: nothing
Cons: Everything
Location: eating places close and shopping close
When I got to my room my bathroom door wouldn't close, I would hit the toilet. I called the front desk at 9:00 pm for a roll away and i didn't get it till 12:00 am. The person at the front desk was drunk all night. Someone called 911 for no reason at all so the alarm went off at 1:00 am (it was a long night) I would not recommend this hotel to anyone.

Clean room, hot water, nice view

Posted Jun 28, 2014
Pros: Price and view
Cons: New interior paint and furniture.
Location: Right off of I-81 and close to several restaurants.
Paint peeling in a couple places, furniture was old and battered, but the room was clean, the linens clean, the water hot. Nice view of Salem and a large pool.

Great hotel for the price

Posted Jun 15, 2014
Pros: It was close to the highway, low cost, and met all our needs. We would stay there again.
A basic, no frills hotel. But it was clean, the beds were firm and comfortable, the fridge had a separate freezer that worked great, and the a/c cooled the room quickly. The breakfast had more variety than usual. Staff was very helpful.
