"Stay else where."
Overall Score2.0/ 5
Not a luxury hotel. Very disapointed.
(Individual traveler, booked 1 room), from US flag
15-Oct-2020 Verified Review, stayed from Wed Sep 23 to Fri Sep 25 2020 at a $95.99 average nightly rate.
"Under handed cheaters and no ice machine."
Overall Score2.0/ 5
If you want to pay more than your reservation quote then rent the room. Booking on line did not know the hotels they were booking.Then checking in did not accommodate you for the reservation price. They wanted $40.00 more so your husband in a wheelchair could get in the room. But to shower not a safe chance. To dangerous to take a shower on a metal folding chair. We would rather sleep in our car than stay at another Howard Johnson's again.
