“One To Avoid!”
Reviewed 24 March 2014

You don't expect a prostitution ring to be run out of a Howard Johnson - but that's what was going on the night I was there. Let's just say that I heard some talk down the way from my room and started watching to see if what I thought I had heard was true. There were three girls (a blonde and two brunettes) going in and out of the same room all day and well into the night. The rooms were on the east side of the hotel, right against the Indian restaurant. And there was a series of men in and out to meet them when they were there. At one point I actually followed the blonde girl into the lobby and watched her pay for the rooms with a wad of cash. This is supposed to be a family hotel. There are lots of sleazy hotels on Lundys Lane that I could see this happening at, but not a Howard Johnson, which I thought was a bit classier than that. That aside, the room was cold, the heat seemed to be barely functioning, the carpeting was dirty and the TV barely worked. I was in and out over the course of three days for business, so had a chance to watch a lot of this going on, Yeah - maybe I'm nosy - but if you have a family you might want to avoid this place like the plague!

Room Tip: If the prostitution ring always uses the same rooms and you choose to stay there anyway avoid the ro...

My boyfriend and I stayed here for his birthday and had the best time ever!!!
I was kinda leery at first because of some of the reviews I read but then I realized that people are pretty and will complain about anything.
We had a king size bed and heart shaped Jacuzzi for a fraction of the price plus free parking. The room was very clean and the staff was extremely friendly.
Aside from the furniture being a little out dated there wad nothing wrong with this hotel at all.

Upon arrival, my husband and I were given keys to our room. The lobby clerk was very professional and friendly. However, when we got to our room, there was a do not disturb sign on our door. I was a little worried at first; "Is this our room?", "Was there a mistake?". Sure enough, we opened the door and it hadn't been cleaned. Thank goodness it was vacant. (We found out later, they have no room cleaning system besides verbally letting the maid know) We were given a new room, but that wasn't much better. Burn hole in the blanket, room smelled of cigarettes, hot tub did not work, hair in the towels, and we were clueless about the heat (we did figure it out after spending a very cold night with only a thin blanket since the other had a burn hole in it) To top it off, we had very little sleep. The walls must be paper thin, a neighbor was either fighting or having adult relations, we heard everything unfortuantly.

Room Tip: Be sure to ask for a working tub.
