We had a long layover in Phoenix and needed a place to sleep from midnight till 7:00 a.m. I booked Howard Johnson expecting that there would be some quality control with the name. WRONG. For $75 I expected a clean hotel with a comfortable and quiet room. Nothing special, just not unpleasant. What I got was a shocker. The place was as dirty as any dump you might come across in some third world armpit. We asked for a non smoking room and they put us in what smelled worse than a dirty ashtray. The activity outside the room, including yelling and music, went on till 3:00 a.m. and the staff did nothing about it. Also, they message about the shuttle says that it runs every 15 minutes. NOT TRUE. It runs once an hour. This was a $30 room at best. I felt cheated and would not ever consider staying here again.
