    Nothing

    The hotel was disguesting the floor in the room was wet and it smelled there was mattresses in the swimming pool and the door going out to the balcony was imposible to open I was very discusted with the whole hotel!

  • Single

    The most dirtiest disgusting place to stay in usa. Really I never seen all my life hotel in such dirty, smelly with un-respectful staff. It was very bad experience which I will never try it again. I don't recommend even for the pets to stay at such hotel. No need to explain in details as my words meant the whole things can describe the hotel services, clean, comfort, staff, etc.... Even $5 per night is too much for such hotel.

    Nothing you can like in such dirty place

    The only complaint I have about the hotel was that the mattress was on the harder side, which wasn't to my liking. Other than that, everything else was fine.

  • Single

    Smelled like crap, insects in room, tv didn't work, staff could barely speak English, and bed was extremely uncomfortable...

  • Older travelers

    the rooms need to be up dated the tv in the room was from the early 90's

    Housekeepers didnt knock before coming in, there were cockroaches in the 1st room I was in, when they moved me to a second room the clerk woke me up at 7 am because the toilet in our room broke during the night and was leaking water downstairs. Definantly would not recomend it

    Rooms were horrible plaster falling very old furniture and unstable. Language barrier with staff.

  • Single

    The newly renovated room was very comfortable and quiet. I slept very well all three nights. Everything I needed was right there. The ihop attached was very convenient, and just right for breakfast and supper.

    The advertisement said there would be breakfast, but it was not included. Same situation with other hotels, so I wasn't surprised during this slow time of year.

    There really was nothing that I liked!!!! My hotel key never worked. I always had to go to the front desk, I choose a smoke free room what good that did for me , I dont think I would go back I was not happy with the hotel,

    My key never worked I always had to walk around , it was a party hotel !!!

  • Older travelers
    8.8

    Closeness to where I had to travel to. Availability of local highways. Price I paid for the accomodations.

    No breakfast, however, I wasn't expecting it so I wasn't disappointed. How about some Hot Chocolate packets? I booked a King bed and I was given a Queen bed.

    The location and its price are excellent. Maybe a bit understaffed, but the staff was very helpful.

    The room could be cleaner; dust was visible on all furniture.

    The place was amazing I really enjoyed my stay- the housekeeping staff was great and kind, the rooms were clean and comfortable, the internet was fast. I would definitely recommend howard johnson to a friend

    I loved howard johnson clifton and the only hinch were the people at the front desk (reception), they weren't as friendly as you would expect them to be- a smile wouldnt harm anyone (but I guess ths lies under a complaint)

  • Family with children

    The laundry room came in handy and the local businesses were a help for what we needed done before leaving town. The cable channels were good and had some I had not seen in a while. The wi fi is convenient if it works. Ours stopped working on the third floor and then we had to sit by the door on the floor to get the connection. It was hard to concentrate there as the workers who live there are in the halls chattering a lot.It is free for the internet though so that was good.

    This is not a complaint but a fact that all fellow travelers should know about this hotel. They are very unclean here. I was put in a room where the sheets had not been changed from a previous guest. I woke up with bites all over me on the second day. We changed our sheets and then I woke up with my eyes swollen shut from the bug bites. We went to another room and still I woke up with bites on my arms and wrists. I have been itching and have swollen bumps still after ten days. The staff is not helpful. They prefer to pass the buck on any problems and some are quite rude. I get the impression they actually do not like Americans.The majority of the staff live in the hotel and your privacy is nil here. If you come for the business in the area and have little to do with the staff and can get them to clean the room it is okay then. Good Luck!!!!!!!

    I was very disappointed in my stay at the Howard Johnson hotel. My flight got cancelled thursday so I called and told them that my guest would be checking in under my name and they said that would be fine and they would still honor my reservations for when I do arrive. I got there friday they did not keep their word as stated before. I had to pay a different rate rather than pay the rate that my reservations was under. I was really disappointed. And to top it off he told me they didn't have anymore rooms available. My original reservations was for a double bed room. After going back and forth about my reservations magically it appeared that he had a king size bed room availble. I said was not going to take that room some how he hit the magic button after I said I wanted the general manager name and number and I should have a discount on my room a double bed room came available. Never again would I stay at the Howard Johnson Clifton hotel.
