Weekend Getaway

My WORST hotel experience ever!! I WILL NEVER stay at another Howard Johnson hotel. Moldy bathtub, smelly carpet, no continental breakfast and in room coffee maker didn't work. Couldn't wait to leave in the morning.

We stayed for softball nationals and I paid 30.00 more a night then the rest of the family's. The pool was so hot that I could not swim in it. I wouldn't stay there again.

The mold caused me to have an allergy reaction. I am very sick with bronchitis now. The faucet in the room did not work properly. The balcony anchors to the wall are not attached. The wall appears to also be cracked.

I was greatly disappointed with the condition of the rooms. Peeling wallpaper, damage to the tub, torn blankets, fitted sheets that did not fit the bed... Only plus is the location...

I was not impressed with the way the room was. This place needs a serious upgrade and remodel. I would not stay here again.

Like my mother always told me, you get what you pay for. In this case, it was worse than expected. The bedding is so paper thin, I had to keep the temps jacked up high to stay warm. Thank goodnees it was relatively warm for a Wisconsin winter during the holidays. The bathtub was dented and deeply stained black-thought it was mold, but it was some horrible mystery stain. The drain was so slow, I was ankle deep at the end of my 8 min. shower. One evening (I stayed 3 nights), I came home to an unmade bed and uncleaned bathroom-there was a note on my pillow that said, "Sorry, was unable to make the bed due to personal property on blankets-Housekeeping" I had left my coat scarf on the bed in my hurry to depart on time to family festivities. Really? I took a picture of the note but Hotels.com doesnt seem to have a method for us to download photos for feedback. I paid $60 per night to be cold, uncomfortable, and unclean.

Pretty clean, convenient location, friendly staff. Nothing fancy but nice for the price.
