Verified Reviews of Howard Johnson Inn

Below are the verified reviews from guests that we have booked recently:
"Below Howard Johnson standards"
Overall Score2.0/ 5
Our group arrived to find numerous problems with rooms. We had TVs with no picture, broken alarm clocks and a lack of towels. The office help were very courteous and helped when they could, but the biggest issue was the towels and we were told they were completely out. I had rooms with four people and no towels or if lucky, one. My room had enough towels but only one wash cloth. In general, the property was old and in serious need of renovating.
