Booked two nights at the Howard Johnson in Mesa Gilbert through Travelocity. Was booked for a non-smoking room that smelled worse than a smoking room. Tried for half an hour to get on the wi-fi network, couldn't get on. It was then I noticed the smoke alarm had been removed - the electrical box was open with the wire connector for the alarm sticking out, but no alarm.

Decided to cut my losses and found another hotel. Even though I knew I wouldn't get a refund because of Travelocity's policy of no refunds, it was worth it, because this place is a joke, unless you don't need wi-fi

Filthy dump, stained pillow cases towels, toilet seat broken. Not worth it for any price. The tub in the first room they gave me had black mold growing in it, the whole room smelled of smoke and it was said to be a non smoking room. I had to go request another room. The second room looked better except for the linen. I sleep showered and got out!!! bad experience!!

Room Tip: go else where

I think the rooms are clean and you get what you pay for.

It's not the hilton but it's a clean place to sleep for not a lot of money.

I'll come back again simply cause it's convenient and clean enough to stay in.

The beds are not the most comfortable so if you like a firm mattress then this isn't the place for you.

As soon as we walked in we noticed a filthy bathtub and the toilet never worked right it was always plugging up, had to get a plunger to unplug since they refused to change us out of this room, next we used the shower and it too was clogged and never worked right and towels they never had any in this room and when asked they said they had to go find some in another room! Really this is a major chain and they don't have towels. Finally when towels were given to us there were stiff and foul smelling with brown spots all over it. I would never stay here again or ever, save your money there rooms and even linen are dirty and it said breakfast is offer but there isn't any so save your money and don't stay here "Never" unless you want filthy sheets and fecal covered towels.
