    Disappointed and overcharged

    We were put in a room with no WiFi and it was dirty. CRT screen TV... Complained and got moved closer to the office where there was dodgy WiFi. Got flatscreen (yay, current tech). Went to sleep and saw there was the “scarf” at the bottom of the bed. Assumed there was a comforter or something under there. Nope.... Top sheet was all they had along with that weird piece of fabric at the bottom of the bed. In the office the next morning they said that was the correct bed dressing. When we complained about that upon exiting they said something to my wife about our dog. He’s a service dog, they didn’t ask about pets/service animals upon check in, but they back-charged us a $10 fee for our dog. We used our shower towels to mop the floors of our room, they were very dirty, along with dirty sheets on the bed. We did them a service cleaning the floor for the next customer

    Worst Stay at Howard Johnson

    Used to stay there before was a pretty decent hotel and the pool and juccuzi were great. But this last time we stayed there the room (#172) was infested with cockroaches even on the floor was some. Couldn't sleep all night was afraid roaches would get on top of my baby,so I stayed awake all night to protect her and other family members while they slept..Told front desk about it all she said was she will let them know to have them check it out.We will no longer stay there until they get the roaches taken care of ...

    The staff was friendly! You get what you pay for... so, I don’t want to dis on them too much. My biggest disappointment was the “continental breakfast” AKA coffee, orange juice, and some bread pretty much. I did a 4 day, 3 night trek across the US from TN to CA. I stayed at Wyndham hotels all along the way because they are affordable and in good enough condition to sleep in for the night. Two of them had awesome breakfasts. This one did not; I just ended up leaving empty handed
