  1. You probably don't care but I'm leaving my opinion anyway. Your hotel in Missoula mt is the worst most filthy bug infested rat hole I've ever entered. Within minutes after entering our 116 dollar a night room we were blasted with the fragrance of cigarette smoke that permitted the carpets, draperies and of course the linens. My daughter found four dead bugs on the bathroom floor. The counter tops were dirty and the beds were saggy in the middle. You really need to review your hotels. No wonder your chain of hotels is diminishIng. This was one filthy dirty slimy establishment! Shame on you!

    1. I had the same worst experience. The bad odor of smoke, dust, etc., hit us in the face when we entered the room. The rug was dirty. But we were tired after a long drive and wanted to rest....but found feces splattered behind the toilet. I called the front desk to ask for a clean room. A maintenance man (wearing a wife beater t-shirt with tattoo's galore, shaved head) came to look at the bathroom. Since it was already cleaned up, he said that we couldn't prove that it was there, that maybe we did it. I felt very intimidated by his stance and stare down. The sheets had an old/dirty smell to them, one of the pillow cases had old blood stains on it, and the blankets were torn. We were declined a clean room. After trying to sleep, I realized I was going to be able to. I told my child to pack up, we're getting out of here. I asked the desk clerk for a refund. He said I would have to talk to the manager, who wouldn't be available until the next day. I politely left my key cards on the front desk, took the business card for the manager, and LEFT. While talking to the front desk clerk, the maintenance man with the wife beater t-shirt, stood behind in the background, with his arms crossed the entire time. I felt very intimidated by this and didn't dare look at him. I was so upset to say the very least. I don't know if this has anything to do with how I was treated at this hotel but I am Native American and have been told later that there are racist people in this area. Please look into this establishment, it is RUINING the name of "Howard Johnson".

    2. I'm just checking out of thr Howard and Johnson that's in Lansing Illinois, "Stay away, I repeat stay away". I just had the worst eexperience ever. I woke up around 7am because I've a business meeting at 9am downtown Chicago so I went into the bathroom to take a shower like always I put shampoo in my hair before I got in the shower. So I turn on the water and let it ran awhile only to find out that it was frozen cold, so I attempted to call down to the front desk and the phone was dead but my tv and heat was on. That didn't make sense. Now my hair is covered in shampoo and I'm headed downstairs to the front desk to complain. The moment I made it to the front desk it was five other guest that beat me to the punch. So I made it up to the counter and at the very momentI oopen my mouth the gentlemen who was claiming to be the GM (Adam) said that it was mother nature fault. So at this point I'm furious and demanded to get a number for corporate, only to find out from Adam that they're independently owned and that Howard and Johnson corporate office had nothing to do with them. So the number he gave me and I called was a number to someone who take my name and number and said someone will get in touch with me on March the 23th and today's date is March 12th and I'm standing inthe lobby with shampoo in my hair........

  2. I had the same experience in Clearwater, Florida. ADDRESS 27988 us Highway 19 N. Clearwater, Florida Manager/Owner Manager VERY RUDE, We ask for a NON-Smoking room. The room was smokey so we ask to be moved because my 3 year old grandson has seizures and can't do the smoke. The Manger/Owner and her husband told us they would show us another room,and if we didn't like the second room we could leave but not to wait two hours to tell them. After a few minutes my grandson was feeling ill do to the smoke in this room, so we decided to check out. I book my room with a credit card but when I arrived i paid in cash, I went back to the office after the second room,and told them we wanted to check out. I was chased through the parking lot by the husband shouting profanity. I was given my money back but they would not give me a receipt. When I went to use my credit card a few minutes later I discovered they charged my room for two nights. I called them immediately and was told I was a pain and they would not call my bank my bank had to release the cc . My bank is Wells Fargo and said their policy is for the merchant to call them. I then called the hotel back and they screamed at me and told they weren't calling anyone. I have been trying since Saturday night to call Customer Service Corporate headquarters to get this resolved and as of this point have had not luck.

  3. This is the first of what will be a lot of complaints I am going to file on the treatment I received and will be publishing all across the web. I am not going to stand for how the Collins Ave in Miami FL manager and front desk staff spoke to me and then canceled my prepaid reservation! How dare they copy my credit card after they ran it and it was approved! That is ILLEGAL!! You are running a scam out of there and it involves identity theft! NO MERCHANT is permitted to copy front and back of a card without the cardholder authorizing it. Then to cancel my room that was paid for and make me spend 300% more is going to cost you dearly! I am going to spend the money on press releases telling everyone what a bunch of thieves you are and you are harboring! NO hotel chain is immune from this type of theft and I demand a refund with the costs for the other room covered as well. You staff is supposed to be trained and courtesy should be the priority. Instead I was spoken too like crap when I demanded the copy of my card! THIS in and of itself is insane! Your staff screwed up my business trip and cost my company over $500 more than I wanted to spend. For this I promise to spend the same amount on press releases to tell the world what a SCAM HOWARD JOHNSON'S is running in its hotels!

  4. Stayed at the Howard Johnson in Billings, rented the EXPENSIVE Suite and the Hide-a-bed was broke!! I called down to the front desk and we was informed that it was extremely busy and that there wasn't a key to get us a roll away bed. We also asked for extra blankets. We didn't receive anything!! One person had to sleep on the couch and the other on the floor and they froze because we never received the extra blanket!! I went to the front desk 3 times that next morning and was told management was on there way, I left my cell # and no one called me!! I called again that night and was told i had to talk with owner. I called the next day and owner wasn't in, I have left 2 voice mails and haven't heard from anyone. I WILL NEVER STAY THERE AGAIN@@@@@@@

  6. We booked a room at the Howard Johnson in Edmonton Alberta Canada, we got there and after 1 and a half hours they still had not given us our room, now 4:30 in the afternoon, so we said another room would be fine, but the room they gave us was filthy, the staff had no idea what they were doing, we could smell bug spray throughout the place, this is unheard of. We left without spending the two nights, still have to get our money back. The front desk clerk gave us back the deposit we had paid on top of the room, they had our credit card, then the front desk clerk said, the manager doesn't check the rooms, he shouldn't have to if it were done right. I will never ever stay at a howard johnson again.

  7. Howard Johnson Norco is the worst I have ever stated in. The Indian management have limited customer service training, run it like a ghetto motel ,they do not know the legal rights of guests. They call police even when they are paid, find excuses to throw guests out for the fun of it with help of the sheriff!
    Non smoking rooms are rented out as smoking rooms. Drug dealers and prositutes form their client base.
    Avoid the hotel if you can.
    Find another hotel in Norco

  9. Having been given the diagnosis of cancer with seven weeks treatment and having to be 180 miles from home, the Howard Johnson in Rapid City, SD was a Godsend to us. Not only did the manager Michelle Aufdengarten give us an excellent medical discount, but the staff was warm and friendly and very accommodating to our needs. Our room and the facility itself was clean and pleasant and I would highly recommend it as the place to stay!

  10. We recently stayed at the Howard Johnson San Antonio Downtown, 1122 S. Laredo ST. I told the guy who was at the desk when we checked in that I had went threw hotels.com. He said he didn't like people doing that it was a hasle on his part. We requested two non smoking rooms beside each other with ice box and microwave. He done the paper work and we go to our room and they were beside each other but mine was a smoking. Ashtray on table. I didn't say anything about that I had rather have the ice box and microwave which wasn't there. So when I called I was to you have to request that when you make the reservations. I said I did. I was told well not every room can have those. He finally brings me one. The ice box freezer has a green spot in it that looks like mold. I have a picture of it. The other room had no ice bucket, was told by the guy that they were out of some things. But he went to the back and got me one. I told him the room had no phone, he said we can't help what people steal out of the rooms. 1 room had 1 person and the other had 4. Both room s had one roll of toilet paper and two towels. Neither romote for the tvs worked in either room. They changed one of them out three times. The next day we went to look around San Antonio and we come back to our rooms, neither one of our keys would let us in our rooms. Had to go to office and get new keys. Wednesday went to Sea World. When we come back same thing had to go to the office to get new keys. There was a lady up there that time. I told her this is my first stay at a Howard Johnson and my last stay at a Howard Johnson. She redone our keys so we could get back into our rooms. Had to get a roll of toilet paper for the one room that housekeeping cleaned that day and left towels on beds and didn't make beds, didn't empty trash, or leave a roll of toilet paper in bath room. The night before we left the light in the swimming pool come out of its socket and was in the pool. I have stayed in some run down hotels and motels before but this was my worst experience ever. I was told when I made the reservations that this hotel had just been built, that it was new.

    Recently stayed at a Howard Johnson in Niagara Falls , cananda, are the times really that difficult to put cleanliness and professionalism last in your Hotels. I could write to add some more to the list of shame but why even bother , you don't seem to care anyways or your Hotels would be in a better shape. But I will make sure to contact BBB and AAA (which should not even list your hotel in canada with any stars). Took the time to take some pictures too. And trust me I will tell anyone that will listen... I hope you are able to change or you will go under like so many other businesses that carry the stigma of a good name with nothing behind it. SHAME on you!

  12. I have always had in the past, stayed at Howard Johnsons. I had made a reservation on line for my husband July 2013 down in San Diego. He is working at a location to far from home to drive back. Not from that area, I'm not sure of what to expect. However, Howard Johnsons was always known for clean rooms comfortable and safe locations, with plenty amenities to please even the most persnickity traveler.
    So, I booked online a room for two days and nights. My husband told me if it was reasonable priced he would plan on staying at that location until he was done with a two month job.
    I wished I was in formed of the location. It was in El Cajon on El Cajon Blvd. When my husband arrived there. He was so mad and upset what transpired. Little did we know. The hotel was in the middle of a seedy area (getto) of ElCajon (SanDiego).
    Not only did he not feel safe, He was approched buy two Hookers and One Crack Dealer.
    And, this happened all before he got to the front door of Howard Johnsons. My Husband was really upset. Also they were remodeling and had beds out in the quad areas.
    My husband had just got off working an 8 hour shift, plus he drove from Big Bear at 1:30 am to San Diego to start at 7:00am to star this day. So he was in no mood to deal with this outrage.
    The Hotel never warned us that they were remodeling. So we could choose to reasses the situation ahead of time. And you could not understand the front desk clerk. His accent was very and diction was very sloppy. He did not accentuate his words clearly.
    Tired , Hungry and worn out, my husband wanted to cancel this fiasco and go elsewhere. They wanted $15.00 to cancel his reservation.
    What Nerve! That was unexceptable. Under those conditions. And the scuzzy area they where located..
    I want to WARN anyone going to SanDiego/ ElCajon area!!!! DO NOT STAY AT HOWARD JOHNSONS ON EL CAJON BLVD! IT IS HORRIBLE! Go anywhere ! But Don't Go there.... Very upset and will never stay at a HOWARD JOHNSONS INN ....EVER!

  13. Howard Johnson in Pensacola, Fl is a total scam. I recently booked and stayed at the location on Pensacola Blvd. I made reservations using my cc, but paid cash upon my check-in. Just got my cc statement and my card was charged for my stay. So for Jocelyn the desk clerk, I hope you spent my cash on something well needed. This issue will be further dealt with, as I will not be double charged.

  14. Just to add to the long list of complaints...My family stayed at the HJ in Burlington, IA. We used our cc to reserve the room and paid cash as well once arriving. Our room smelled really bad like years and years of dirt and stains on the floor not to mention our two chairs that we had to sit on had at least 5 stains in one and filth and dirt in the other one. One roll of toilet paper for our 3 night stay. Called for extra blankets the front desk clerk said she was busy and so i looked through my broken window in our room through the pool area and saw not a sole standing at the desk. I have worked in a hotel for a few years and I was always taught guest come first. I had to ask for our towels eache day and toilet paper. Our beds were made one time while we were there. We will never stay at the HJ again.

    1. We had a group of people stay at Burlington,Ia. Howard Johnson this past wkend.Paying for at least 6 rooms. FILTHY establishment!!! We had to ask for clean sheets.The bedding all should of been thrown out! None of us were willing to even shower there.I took pictures of this place.How on earth is this place still open ?Don't hotels have to pass inspections? This place should have been torn down years ago! We ask to talk to the manager to get our money back or at least a discount and received nothing.The people who work there even think its a dump! Peeling paint in huge chunks hanging from the ceilings.Stained drapes,carpet,bedding and furniture!

  16. I stayed at Howard Johnson's in Bakersfield on White Lane on July 27th. They had my credit card information, but I had to surrender my driver's license of which they made a copy of both the license and credit card. I was not in favor of that as anyone with that copy of my license may have opened up a bank account, applied for a credit card and done extensive damage to my finances. I was very willing to show my information, but I did not like a copy laying around that office. I also asked for that copy back when I checked out, but was denied that copy. Had I known, I would not have stayed there. There is no reason to copy sensitive information of a guest. I also had roaches in the room. All I got from the staff was i'm sorry. That don't cut it for me. I have stayed at several locations that were clean, thrifty, and a pleasure to stay at. I don't know why this location was so bad.

  18. It's sad that people have to write bad comments on-line. I am 51 years old and have been staying in HOJO'S for at least 35 years, I recently stayed in HOJO'S lundy's lane Niagara Falls Canada. The WORST place in the world.Very very very DIRTY. cut my leg on the bed. Rug was awful walls dirty I was afraid I was going to catch something. What is really SAD is this being a big hotel chain. They never offered to return the 280 dollars we spent never called to apologize for the WORST hotel stay in my life.They will not send anyone from corporate to go and see room 161 and the way the hotel name is being draged threw the mud. You now have your name made after all these years so you don't care. Room smelled like pot then musty when pot smell left. I have a small dog and he would not sleep on the floor so what does that tell you. HOJO'S should really check this out. So get off your high horses and check your hotels out before it's to late., because I don't care if they give it to me for $5 a night I will not return untill something is done.

  19. I would like to add my complaint to the list of complaints about Howard Johnson in general and Howard Johnson in Chicago Illinois. This is the worst hotel I have ever stayed at in my life. The room was disgusting and my personal belongings came up missing from my room. I complained to management and they were rude and did absolutely nothing. I complained to the corporate office and was told that there was nothing they could do about the situation. I have never seen such terrible customer service in my life. I will never give Howard Johnson my business and will be sure to share my experience with anyone that will listen!!

  20. To whom it may concern:

    I stayed at your Hotel on 9/1/13(Eggharbor township in NJ) and could not wait until the next day to leave I have never stayed in is such a dirty place in my life, this was the worst hotel, the carpet was dirty, the bed was lumpy, the chair and wall had stains, the iron board had stain no one dusted JUST NASTY, when I check out on 9/2/13 I told the manager at that desk how nasty the room was and all he said was. “ were working on to make things better inside”, I told him I see the outside of the hotel is more kept up then the inside and I think the time spent making the outside look good you should do the same for the inside, The Howard Johnson has been around toooooooooooooo long to look like it looks inside, I will never visit you hotel again.

  21. About two months ago we had breakfast at Hojos in Niagra falls ny, When we were seated at the booth I sat down and never seeing a hole in the seat which ripped my jeans luckily not my skin. A spring was sticking out. The jeans were pretty new and belonged to my daughter who had passed away. They have very sentimental meaning to me and now they are ruined. I lost 100 lbs just to fit into them. I cried when it happened. We told the waitress and she said she would get the manager right over which he never came. We ate our breakfast which was very good. The waitress never brought him over so when we were paying for our food we asked to speak to him and he just took my name and address and said he would let corp know. I have never heard anything not even an apology. I am very upset over this.

    We stayed at the Howard Johnson Hotel at 1661 S. Hotel Circle in San Diego, Ca. We were charged for one room one night $147.00 plus tax. When we entered our room the first thing I saw was a large cup of soda from a local fast food, we are nonsmokers and the odor of tobacco was strong, the carpet was dirty, when we went to use the bathroom we found that the paper holder was broken and rusty like it had not been cleaned in months. There were no sanitary strips around the toilet seat to show that it had been cleaned. When I went to take my shower I found a bar of bath soap that was unwrapped and used on the counter. The handle to turn the on in the shower/bath was so hard to open that my wife could not work it. We had just got there from a long drive and my wife needed to use a bathroom and she asked the young man at the count if she could use the one in the lobby and was told they did not have one, everyone else does. We were tired and needed a place to stay and sleep and we did, the breakfast sure had a lot to be desired. I can promise you this that we will never ever be so desperate to stay a an HJ again.

  25. I recently stayed in Newburgh, NY Howard Johnson on 95 state route 17K. I used booking.com and used my CC to hold the room. When I arrived I paid in cash (I got the receipt). Three days later I checked my credit card and they took the entire amount of my room from my account. There were no damages to the room whatsoever. When I called the hotel to ask for my money back the women who answered the phone (Katie) was very indignant, rude, and discourteous. As I was trying to exlpain the situation she told me to "shut up". I wasn't rude with her until that point. I am currently trying to get my money back from corporate. I can definately say if they refure me a refund I will be filing a civil suit.

  26. I was just at your Howard Johnson Enchanted Land Hotel Kissimmee FL
    4985 W. Irlo Bronson Hwy., Hwy 192 / SR 535, Kissimmee, FL 34746
    This place is a joke. I was there on business no internet for 3 days when asked about it person at front desk lied and said it only been out for a short time and it would be working later well later never came!!
    Tv remote was not working told front desk -- said it would be fixed never was !!! room was dirty paint on floors like some one walked in paint then just walked around in room..
    black mold in bath room told front desk again nothing done. If you don't close this place down maybe the health department needs to.I have never stay in a place this bad. But I guess that's what you get from people who don't care.... I wanted to check out after the first night but was told I would not get a refund.
    You need to take more action on places like this.
    Thanks

  27. To all of you who have had the same horrible experience with Howard Johnson I say this, initiate a chargeback. Call your bank and tell them you want to initiate a chargeback for the fees you have been charged. This does 2 things. It challenges the fees directly with the credit card companies, Visa/MasterCard/Discover, ect. And it files a complaint against the company. All you have to do is show that your are owed the refund and that you have attempted, with negative results, to get a refund directly from the company. Visa (or whichever) will give you your money back then they will get the money back from Howard Johnson. Once you have won your claim and gotten your money back it is a black market against Howard Johnson with Visa/MasterCard. Once they have received enough black marks the credit card companies will stop dealing with them. Howard Johnson will no longer be able to process credit cards as a form of payment. I have done this twice with 2 different companies and I have gotten my money back both times. My stay at the Howard Johnson in Norco, CA was horrible. Among the various things wrong with the room, the shower did not put out hot water. When I called to complain they were all too happy to allow me to check out, WITHOUT A REFUND. When I threatened to check out and then initiate the chargeback they actually made an effort to correct something. Now lets see how long it takes them to remove this post!

  28. DONOT USE the howard Johnson here 22016 Jamaica Ave · Queens Village

    I am aware and was present when a 95-year old man fell in the bathroom on the floor due to water being on the floor. The hotel's response was there was no water on the floor but funny when he got up there was water all over his clothes. The manager was not present and front desk clerk was not helpful at all, When I spoke to the manager his only response was that of defense out of fear that I would sue.!!! Please don't go here.

  30. My family stayed at the Super 8 in Pompano Beach Florida on February 1st through February 2nd. So glad it was only one night because I couldn't have handled staying there any longer. The front desk manager acted like we were a nuisance, like we were interrupting his personal time. There was no elevator so we had to carry all our bags up to the 2nd floor. When we got to our rooms (we had 2) we were totally disgusted. It was filthy!!! Literally there were boogers smeared on the wall, pubic hairs in the tub and on the floor of the bathroom, the smell was awful. We literally considered sleeping in our car. Both rooms were equally bad. We checked our beds for bed bugs before we got in and the next morning we showered in flip flops because it was so filthy we didn't want to get some disease. My mom couldn't sleep so she went to the lobby and there was literally prostitute after prostitute coming and going all night long. We got out of there first thing in the morning opting out of the continental breakfast because we wouldn't have dared eat it when everything else was so filthy. When we expressed our complaints to the front desk they offered no solution. I would never stay at this motel again, nor would I recommend a Super 8 motel to anyone that I knew!!!!! This is the first time I have ever left a review, but our experience was so bad I wanted to warn other people!!!!

  34. Howard Johnson in Perry GA. Unsafe, Unhealthy and terribly managed. Billy the general manager was angry and rude to old people and children. I was there half a day and witnessed it three times. Once and check in and twice at breakfast.

  35. My family and i JUST got thrown out of the Howard Johnson's diner in Flagstaff, AZ. Why? When we walked in, my brother who was having low sugar issues sat down with his back to walk and their cafe/diner manager started yell at us " I'm going to call the police and that paramedics! You need to get out!"
    That asshole didn't even know what was going on, my brother end up walking out side bc the guy scared him (my brother has aspergers too, verbally assulting him like that was not just uncalled for it was fucked up) and then the guy told me and mom to get out too. I hope your company realizes that that was ableist, which can land you in serious legal trouble! Not to mention it could be construed as racist judging that we're a family of color to boot. I don't know what his problem was, but his behavior was unacceptable on all accounts. We fully intend to give both their local office and corporate office a call.

  36. So, from reading the comments your hotel is nasty no matter what state its in! This past weekend I stayed at the HOJO in N. Austin. I have NEVER stayed in a $100 a night room that was more like a damn crack hotel! When entering the "smoke free" establishment, we were greeted by the smell of dogs and cat piss, trash bags sitting outside (as if they were waiting on the city trash man) and huge gnats in the room coming out of the sink. I complained the the general manager Belinda Zweifel who stated that she needs to investigate it! Really!! She is unaware that "tenats" live on the property with their pets! I still have not heard from her or anyone in the corporate office! Your hotel chain should HAND OUT ROOMS as nasty as it is! Damn skid row crack motel! We literally watched a man begging for change and washing windows walk over to the hotel and use and key card to enter one of the remodled rooms in the front. Unfortunetly we were in the nasty back crack rooms! The city needs to shut this place DOWN!

  40. We booked the Howard Johnson in Savannah Georgia for our 7th wedding anniversary. We drove 12 hours only to arrive at a disappointment. All we wanted to do was to go straight to bed ..we were exhausted! But instead this is what happened ...we always check any place we stay in for bed bugs since the last two+ years there's been a huge outbreak. And my husband is friends with one of the top bed bug exterminators in Ohio ...he knows how to spot a bed bug, especially when it is the size of a pencil head! So the first thing we did was put our bags on the desk and check the bed. The first thing I did was pull back the dark blue cover to look at the light blue blanket which had tiny brown stains on it. (Disgusting) Then we pulled back the sheet, all looked fine. Then we pulled back the fitted sheet which is where we found our nice plump bed bug! We only saw one but inside the stitched flower design in the mattress there were little tan and brown spots all over which are tiny bugs (Google images) I wanted to take a picture knowing that the hotel would deny it but my husband just wanted to get outta there fast. So we took our bags, loaded our car and went back to the front desk. We explained it to the girl working and she couldn't even assure us we would be refunded for the night we weren't even staying there (which we did -good thing!-I would've been sooo mad!) So instead of being able to go to sleep in a hotel we ended up having to sleep in our car ..the lady offered us another room which is retarded and then tried to get us to stay at the red roof in next door. I'm sorry but I'm not staying anywhere affiliated with a bed bug infested hotel! I instantly posted a short review on tripadvisor only to get a response from the hotel saying they had an inspection two hours after the incident ..which I don't think they had someone there inspecting for bed bugs at 4am..is there any companies open that early? And that they saw no signs of bed bugs which is insane! All they have to do is check the mattress! They didn't even have one of those mattress covers to prevent bed bugs that you put under your fitted sheet! I am sooo disappointed in the way the situation was handled! Do they really think after driving 12+ hours and being exhausted we would make up a story about bed bugs to sleep in our vehicle at a rest stop and celebrate our anniversary this way! Ya that makes sense huh! the whole thing is unbelievable! We then ended up driving to Orlando to get a hotel about the same cost which was a four and a half star not three star and had no bed bugs, awesome service, and food, amazing pool! Howard Johnson you should really check out the "Omni resort" in Orlando! You could learn a lot from them! Thanks for being a blessing in disguise to the best hotel experience at omni resort for our wedding anniversary! You don't hold a candle to it!

  41. We got stuck before we even stepped through the doors. Hubby was trying to make reservations for the NY side of Niagara falls and mistakenly made them for the Canada side soon as he saw what he did he contacted to cancel and they still charged us for the rooms anyway. I called 1-800-544-9881 and was told it was corporate office and there was nothing they could do for us so we lost 144.00

  42. I am currently staying at the Hojo in Corpus Christi. The carpet is absoluley disgusting. I have to wear socks to keep my feet from turning black. Also I called the front desk to ask why the WiFi hasn't been working and they just said that they tend to have that problem. The bedding hardly seems to be washed/clean. I will be staying in a different location next week and I won't recommend this hotel to anyone. Also leaving a negative report on trip advisor. How can you let people stay in such a gross hotel.

  43. I recently stayed in the motel 8 in Worthington Minnesota. It was an owner operator establishment husband and wife from India. I paid cash for my room when I checked in. As soon as I open my door to leave my room in the morning the husband is waiting across the hall and starts telling me I have to pay an extra $5 because I plugged my work truck which has a freezer unit. He was very rude about it when I questioned him why I wasn't notified when I checked in he said because I didn't tell him I was plugging a vehicle in. I spend a lot of time on the road in many hotels and have NEVER been so disrespected. There was no sign stating there was a charge for this. All hotels I have stayed at have included plugging in your vehicle with your stay. The $5 is nothing to me, its the disrespect these idiots gave me after finding out I used there electrical outlet like I was a criminal stealing from them. Pretty sure I paid good American money for the use of their facility. I will NEVER stay at this hotel again and I hope anyone reading this stays far away as well.

  44. Howard johnson inn in Springfield Illinois are thefts. I have never been there. I made a reservation there and cancelled it 10 minutes later and they still charged my card 156.80 even though I was told the room was only 60. The manager is very rude I asked him if I cancelled before your cancelled before 6 why did he charge me he keeps telling me I checked in. I have never been there and will never go now.

  45. The Howard Johnson's in Billings Montana is awful. Our room and stairwell leading to it was so smoke smelling that we literally got a headache. We were supposed to have a non smoking room. The room was dirty and had spiders crawling on the ceiling. When I complained to the desk clerk I was told the manager Shasheen didn't work that day so I left all my contact number for her to call me. That never happened so I called her. There was never an apology for the room or a concern that it was dirty and bug infested. They also charged me for a nights stay that was prepaid through Priceline so I cannot get a refund for this room until they receive their payment through Priceline. Don't ever think about staying here.

  46. I'm not the type to just complain but my experience at Howard Johnson in Beaufort SC was the worst. I have pictures if there is a area to post but the tub had mold and was dirty and the towels were dirty as well as the sheets/pillow cases. 119.00 for this room and I might have been more understanding if the management didn't challenge me by saying his workers has been cleaning for six years. I never once asked for my money back just wanted to make them aware but this hotel was filty and the health FD department needs to cone and evaluate.

  47. i had the worst ever experience at the Howard Johnson at 5811 Annapolis Road, Washington DC North/BW Parkway. I have stayed at many hotels over my 60 years of life. But to get to the hotel late (no fault of the hotel) go to the room and leave for the event I had travel there for and to come back and can''t get onto the property because the gate is closed. Directions were not correct to get to the other entrance and had to call to the hotel to get correct directions to get onto the property. Person on other end, states that it's simple. No it's not, I'm a 60 year old women in a strange place at 2:00-3:00 AM and with only another female in the car, trying to get around, it was not simple nor correct direction based on what was on the gate that shouldn't been closed. I wasn't able to get into my room until 3:25 am. After all of that, There were ants in my bed and the top covers, on the night table and in the bathroom. When I called the front desk they said they would send maintenance. The man came with a can of spray and asked if I was staying another night or checking out. I when I replay I wasn't staying he stated for me to have the front desk let him know when the room was empty and he would come back and spray. Wow. Front desk would get me a receipt for the room and I asked to speak to the manger on duty. She stated she was on duty. I stated that the sign had a name of Todd, she said he wasn;t there, I stated that his name should not be on the sign then. I also mentioned again about the fact that the sign on the wall stated that the gate would be open until 2 am and it was closed when I tried to return to the property and that I was dissatisfy with the hotel especially with ants in the bed and being bitten. She could only say, she was sorry. I stated that every issued was met with I'm sorry. I'm very sorry too and I have pictures of the ants on the bed. I really believe I deserve to receive a refund for my troubles. I will not recommend this hotel to anyone. I pray that the issues with this hotel get resolved, but I also hope no one asks me about the hotel, cause I will not give a glowing review by any means. I stayed there on July 12-13, 2014. Room 116.

  48. I would think that after all the bad reviews of the Howard Johnson chain, that you would want to either clean these places up or get out of the hotel business all together, We stayed in the Howard Johnson in Hastings NE. The staff is the most unfriendly, poorly trained people I have ever came in contact with. The management was extremely rude. Key cards didn't work, electical outlets and lights didn't work. It is dirty and mold growing, floors in the convention rooms were wet and disgusting. The pool was not able to be used, the restraunt and bar were not open. They charged everyone a different price than what we had in our contract. The catered food was ok but the service and set up was terrible. Avoid staying here at all cost. they have so many nicer motels in this area for less than what this hole charges. I have not one good thing to say about it, except it won't be long until they are forced to close their doors. The health department needs to make a stop here and see how bad it is. Lesson learned the hard way, will never again stay in a hotel associated with Howard Johnson.

  49. I recently stayed at the Howard Johnson's in Albuquerque, NM on Hotel Street. I was there for 3 nights and my debit card has been charged for 5 nights. I have called them several times over the last 3 days since checking out and been given the run around. The most recent call resulted in them telling me they only charged me for 3 nights and it was my bank who was holding my credits from them. I called my bank and they said that would never happen. Howard Johnson's also said the extra charges are for "pre-approval". My response was that they shouldn't put through so many debit transactions that result in deductions from my bank account that almost equals twice the amount of the stay itself. I gave them 24 hours to straighten it out or I will be filing a complaint with all banking governing departments and the city of Albuquerque licensing division.

  50. We stayed at the Howard Johnson Inn on the Las Vegas strip and it is EXTREMELY FILTHY. The carpets in our room were severely stained and sticky – it stained our white socks so gross. The bathroom walls are covered in filth and sticky – it was even disgusting to touch the light switch plates. Our heater broke and the maintenance man brought us a small portable heater and advised that he would return with a bigger heater but he never returned. I had to follow-up with the maintenance man the next day after freezing all night cause it’s winter and he said that “6 heaters broke last night”. We were only staying for two nights and I could not find a reasonably priced hotel at the last minute in Las Vegas during the holiday season so that’s the only reason we decided to stay another night cause we could not afford to switch hotels. This Howard Johnson Inn location on the Las Vegas strip is making ALL Howard Johnson Inn’s look like a low budget filthy “motel”.

  51. Stayed at HOJO in Arcata, CA... I guess the room was okay, but the services and personnel were horrific. We stayed for two nights in a non-smoking room and I assured them I was not smoking in the room (which is the truth). Granted, I did go outside several times to smoke, but I got a non-smoking room specifically because I have a toddler and do not smoke around her. After leaving I did not get my deposit back... When I called to figure out why they insisted the room had to be scented because it smelled like smoke. I of course told them I was not smoking and they were extremely rude in response. They clearly did not care to listen to my side of the story and refused to make any attempt to assist me. When I asked to speak to the manager they told me "She is busy at the moment, but she is going to tell you the same thing." I said I would wait, but she insisted that her manager would be a while and that I should just have them call me back, so I eventually agreed to this... Of course, my phone call was never returned.
    Aside from the clear discrimination and unfair treatment, the girl in the lobby (on more than one occasion) was poor mannered and extremely rude.
    Finally, when I was checking out... the maids were sure to knock on our door and hurry us along an hour and a half early, as well as a half hour before we needed to be out. VERY annoying considering my already persistent and obvious rush to be out of their room on time anyway.
    All-in-All, 2 Stars- I would not suggest HOJO to anyone, and know that I explore a bit, almost every review I can find is poor and unsatisfactory.

  52. Do not stay at the HoJos in Ft Meyers FL. The bugs on the counters, in the tub, on the window sill, the slamming of doors, the holes in comforters, holes in chairs, electric outlets did not work, beds were disgusting. The poor girl at the front desk could only apologize and cancel our other days. Next problem... they put the whole 4 days charges on bank account card, took off, put on, took off, put on, took off. YES 3 Times!! We paid by cash for one night stay.

  53. We stayed for 2 nights, the first night we arrived at 10 pm. After driving for 8 plus hours. When we arrived and got our keys, we went right to the room. There were 2 queen beds, the one I pulled the covers back on had blood stained sheets. I immediately called the front desk. The clerk advised me she would send someone with sheets. 10 min later a knock at the door, and all they did was hand us sheets. We ended up on the other bed. The floors were dirty, the bathroom was rusty. The next day I went to office to talk to mgr and he was not around. I asked for a phone call and never received one. We left our towels on floor for new ones, when we came back that night our towels we used were folded. We never received new ones. They were still wet from that am use. Secondly, they did not replace soaps, or take trash out that we left behind. When we checked out again asked about mgr, I was told he was not in, but he knew about our issues, and would be calling me. This is now 7 days later, still no call or email from him. I paid 75.00 a night. Yes you pay for what you get. BE AWAERE I will never stay here again!! I just emailed him again, I won't give up till I hear from this MGR

  54. i stayed at Howard Johnson inn Vallejo California last week with my high school girls basketball team after traveling 12 hours from Oregon. We had 4 rooms reserved with a late arrival and rooms all together request
    night 1- upstairs toilet over flowed through a light fixture into our room.We asked for it to be taken care of. We were told that the man at the counter was alone and he could not help us. He gave me some towels and said we needed to clean it our selves. asked for a new room and he said no. We moved kids into one of our other rooms and did not use the room. He promised us a refund and to fix the next day.
    Day 2- guy from day 1 did not have our room taken care of as promised and since it was not slept in it did not get cleaned. Still no other rooms for us. we piled into one of the other rooms again. were promised we would get a refund.
    at 12:30 am same night i heard someone trying to beat down a door. i called front desk and was told someone would come check it out. No one did. i heard it again and ended up chasing of some shady guys that were beating on a door. 30 minutes later i heard glass break to discover the guys were back and robbing the room next to mine. Called desk again and demanded the police. they eventually came but didnt even go into the room or talk to me. My girls team saw this all happen and were afraid. we moved them all into one room and i stayed up as watch all night.
    early the next morning we packed to leave. we were treated terrible. i asked for the refund for the 2 nights in the flooded room. did not get it. asked for a refund for the remaining nights since we were leaving. took an hour of arguing to get a partial refund.

    This is a terrible place. PLEASE remove your company name from this place, give me a full refund and this will satisfy the issue we had.i have recently sent you an email explaining this so match the 2 complaints up and call me back

  56. Tried staying at the HJ in Haileah Florida but had to leave after 4 days. Started out with the beds were so worn out that they were sunk in the middle about 4 inchs. Next thing was the TV controller did not work. For the price I got no refrigerator or microwave, I was next to the athletic room which had no sound barrier and at 12:00 AM the noise woke me up and I had to go and ask to be moved to another room to which they said I would need to take a smoking room. I said I could move the next day to which they said that there were no more non smoking rooms. The next thing was when I went to use the athletic room and I thought the treadmill had some trick to get it to go more than 2 miles an hour. Went to the front desk and was told its broken and has been. Next I went to use the computer room which they say is open till 9:00PM, NOT and it was only 7:30PM. Last but not least is I have been waiting for over a week for my reservation money to be put back into my account. I was talking to my wife who had just gontten back from California and she said she had a similer experiance. I hate to say it but this chain is no longer a good one to stay at. I wounder if it has been purchased by an over seas company.

  60. I was locked in the bathroom for over 20 mins (safey hazard ) because the knob was broken ! Had to wait until
    Maintenance come to get me out. Maintenance couldn't open the door. There was no fan or window. I just got done taking a hot shower. It was terrible! My experience so Horrible I'll never recommend a Howard Johnson in Fullerton, ca to anyone wish I would of went over reviews before going. Customer service wasn't good tried to order an extra bed and front desk said we will have to wait until the morning... Pretty pointless if we need somewhere to sleep at night. Not only my room but the whole building was just so dirty.

  62. We stayed at Howard Johnson on 6603 International Dr, Orlando, FL 32819, United States. The hotel is outdated, old and in needed of many improvements. Room was basic. No fridge, no microwave, and minimal furniture (one chair, one table and one dresser). The bathroom did not have a fan, and toilet was slow to flush. Poor wifi connection. Breakfast provided was some toast, cereal and coffee. Some of the toasters were not functioning as well.

    Most of the above things are tolerable to a degree as this was a cheap stay, but what is NOT TOLERABLE is that our room was NEVER CLEANED while we stayed there. We went to the office to complain only to find out we were not the only ones, but in fact about 10 other rooms were not cleaned that day. We were given some "fresh" towels to lug back to our room to use. We never saw any cleaning staff around, and while we were there the only staff visible was working on the former children's pool with loud machinery in the morning. In addition, there was no soap in the public bathrooms at the breakfast area.

    We brought our concerns to the office, but was only met with resistance, many many excuses and a management that didn't even bother to come speak to us, or show any concern to its customers. I am being generous in saying that this place needs a lot of improvements. It would be a very long shot for us to to come back again to this hotel.

  63. Last night, my partner and I booked a room last minute as we passed through Vacaville, CA.
    Seeing as we paid $85 for, the room we weren't expecting a spa hotel. Besides the minor basic complaints, here's the incident that turned our stay from an experience that we wouldn't have thought twice about to one that I considered calling an attorney:
    As I was walking towards the office to check out, I see a man in sunglasses staring at me from the office. He continues to stare at me up and down and walks towards me so I verbally confronted him, literally asking him "what the fuck do you want, asshole?" - a question I would have asked any slimeball who thinks it's acceptable to eyeball rape a woman.
    He guy responds with "I'm security" and proceeds to follow me to the office. At this point, I take this as a threat and we have a stare down as he goes to stand on the other side of the counter.
    I then ask "if you were a woman walking alone in a parking lot and you had some guy staring at you, what would you do?" with which he replies "oh honey I wasn't staring at you, you've got nothing to look at."
    As a woman, when you are at a motel in a part of town with prostitutes on the corner and some guy who is not in any security uniform stare at you like a piece of meat, there is no reason to be polite.

    I called corporate and was told that corporate doesn't hire or train any of the employees. So that means these people don't go through background checks or receive any type of sexual harassment training.

    My compliant might have fell on deaf ears, but I wouldn't hesitate to go back and ask for his information to run a check to see if he's a convicted offender.

    Subject: Questions Regarding a Specific Hotel
    Comments*:

    Customer service-lack of! I was raised in PA and the name Howard Johnson was always implied with good customer service. My father was a salesman and I remember many stays with HO-JO. Lodging, food, Ice cream and "service". I understand that the Brook Park store / hotel is undergoing remodeling for the GOP convention in 2016, but one can not let the rest of the facility fall apart while remodeling is going on. The flooring to the rooms had been patched but nearly all was gone leaving trenches in the walkway that hung up luggage. The carpet in our room was filthy with big black spots where it looks like a dog or previous tenant had relieved themselves. A large section of the plaster over the bed was pulled away from the sheet rock and looked like it would fall at any time! The arms on the desk chair had most of the screws backed out so each moved 3=inches in either direction. Before retiring, I called the front desk and asked if there would be coffee available around 5AM as I had an early flight The clerk said coffee would be ready before that time. I went to front desk at 5:15 AM and was told impolitely, "nothing would be available until after 6AM". I returned to my room and tried to drink the poor excuse for coffee in the room out of a cardboard cold water cup, all that was available. About 5:45 AM, after loading my car, I returned to same rude attendant to check out and get a receipt. He said I would have to wait 15 to 20 minutes while the computer ran it's daily report. I would have missed my flight if I had waited. This location will have to continue to make it own way after the convention unless you have a successful fire. I for one will never stay there again and it is making me question if the Wyndham chain will ever get any more of my business, let alone referring your properties. One bad apple will sour the entire barrel and I am NOT a "HAPPY WYNDHAM CAMPER" at this time! I still do not have a receipt for this charge.
