Verified Reviews of Howard Johnson Plaza Hotel

Below are the verified reviews from guests that we have booked recently:
"Room 721"
Overall Score3.0/ 5
The carpet needs to be steam cleaned; our feet were dirty on the bottoms. No refrigerator in room, leaking rain water in room, alarm went off at 12AM. The bathroom sink needs to be updated. Your rooms were very cheaply done. For the prices.
