It's an old building and not well maintained by the owners. Noisy
elevator, old, shop -worn furniture and dressings, drapes that
didn't completely cover the windows, old TVs and a clock radio whose
alarm didn't work. The maintenance staff did clean and tried hard,
but old is old and it shows. Also, possibly the worst towels I have ever
seen in a hotel, or anywhere for that matter. Thin, threadbare and hard,
non-absorbent; definitely bleached, however. I am sure that there are
plans to tear this hotel down and repurpose the space, or else the
Howard Johnson chain just doesn't care anymore.
The location was ideal for me, as was the cost, although I felt that I
really overpaid, considering.
