Horrible hotel, old rooms, urgent renovation. Staff was not friendly

I am extremely dissatisfied. The room itself was passable. The staff was unhelpful, unable to find my reservation even with my printed receipt. The parking area was not on the property, not within view of the motel, not monitored, not even fenced. The motel is in a sketchy and somewhat unsafe area. As a result, I made other arrangements and checked out. Upon checkout 4 hours later when I explained why, I was told I could have parked in the motel lot. That made me feel they were even more flaky. This place gives parksleepfly a bad name. I did not ride the shuttle, but had to answer the survey questions, but the answers don't apply.

So so not the best

This hotel has seen better days and is in a very sketchy neighborhood. Definitely hasn't aged well. We brought our swimsuits and we're looking forward to the pool in the 102 degree weather but sadly the pool was green. On the surface, the room was clean but don't look too closely. The sheets were wrinkled and thin. The air conditioner was so loud we had to turn it off to sleep and then it got too hot to sleep. The room we were given was right by the office. About 4:45 am other guests congregated outside our room to wait for the 5:05 am shuttle and talked loudly about what they had for dinner the night before, etc. The shuttle service was the best part of our experience.

The hotel was absolutely filthy. I have stayed in a lot of hotels but this was by far the worse. The room was filthy. The phone cord was caked with dirt. But we were flying out in the morning and we had already paid our money so we had no other option. Will never stay at another Howard Johnson's again.
