Verified Reviews of Howard Johnson Express Inn Lake Tahoe

Below are the verified reviews from guests that we have booked recently:
"STAY CLEAR this ones not worth it."
Overall Score1.0/ 5
This was a terrible experience from A to Z.. We booked a group Rez back in March and anytime someone called to book the hotel couldn't find our group name. After we double checked and never got calls back from management we locked down that yes hey had each persons reservation. But upon arrival checking was a mess. Pool cover was falling in and had cinder block hold cover over stank water in pool. One family had to find another hotel as their door wouldn't lock and hotel said they didn't have any other rooms, My shower won't stop dropping and has black mold. Everyone was assured to have two to three queen beds and many instead got a King bed with broken roll always AND got charged for the roll always. Our sheets were stained, rooms dirty, flaky management taking personal calls in the middle of trying to check in. I can go on and on. STAY CLEAR.
