No good things to say
Train tracks outside hotel made it sound like train was coming into room. Huge cockroach in bathroom. Room outdated and dirty. Never found free breakfast due to having to go outside and follow an obstacle course
Staff lady was totally useless children and friends of the staff were hanging around in the morning, waiting for the breakfast to open. The whole place seemed to be in a depressed state. Lobby couches and such were very dirty old and dingy. Guest lobby computer did not work. It was a very old computer. wifi in my room didn't work I complained, and got an e-mail from manager that he would be reimbursing me $20, but I never did receive it!
It was a nice quiet place.
the comfort of the bed...cleanliness
The thin walls.i could've hear my neighbors talk ...but overall my stay wasn't bad at all and if I'm in the Florence area again I would stay!
the low price the size of the double bedded bedroom comfort of bed tea and coffee facilities
the quite disgusting 'free breakfast' I walked out and others were complaining. dirty plates burnt, scarce scrambled eggs miserable little sausage patties
Very old building; old carpeting & paint. No exhaust fan in bathroom. Outside light could be seen under room door. Poor dining facility for continental breakfast. No convenient ice or vending machine. Terrible laundry facilities.
This Howard Johnson's was a real find -- from the friendly staff (Cindy and Tzany) to the clean rooms, hot breakfast including grits, eggs and waffles -- and the cost was about 1/2 of other hotels in area -- very impressed -- bathroom clean, fridge in room, flatscreen tv and microwave in room -- and everything clean -- so happy to find it and will definitely return in future.
The breakfast is 6:30 a.m. to 9 a.m. I wish it would have lasted until 10 a.m.
The rooms we're ok as far ad cleanliness,but the laundry room which was right beside my room needed work.
The water was scolding hot and when you adjusted the temperature it would go from just right to extremely hot.I did report this issue to management.
I liked the items that were included in the room: the television, refrigerator and microwave. The free breakfast was good and helpful, being that it was provided on the premises. We didn't have to leave the hotel area to get breakfast (very convenient and the food was tasty).
I reserved 2 rooms, 1 king bed (non-smoke) & 1-2 double bed (smoke). Went to rooms there were 2 king beds; went back to front desk to change 1 room to 1-2 double beds-smoke-didn't have smoke, settled for non-smoke. Shower curtain in bathroom had not been changed from previous guests; completely wet at bottom. Requested replacement curtain, was told that it probably couldn't be replaced at that time; maybe a staff shortage? Faulty sink stopper, could not stop up sink.
The room was clean and cozy. We come often to just get away from for a day and we're never completely dissatisfied.
The bathrooms are too small.
Staff attire unclean and bad presentation unsanitary dining area. Continental breakfast was hidden and attendant rude when ask for items. Front desk attracted unpresentable people hanging out.
Staff - Cynthia was GREAT!
unprepared for stay (A/C units in hallway and being installed during stay) Was given room tof incomplete installation og unit. Unit didn't work well in room
It was conveniently located
The bathroom was gross - I wasn't even willing to take a shower in it.
Room was good.
Breakfast area very badly maintained and dirty. Whole facility needs attention and cleaning.
The staff addressed my issues in a timely manner. Everyone was friendly and courteous. The price was reasonable for the area.
I didn't like the fact that there was no elevators. I didn't like the fact that I couldn't take my food back to my room. I had a ticket, so I don't really see what the issue was. In all of my years of traveling I've never seen that before.
Paid for a king-sized bed-got a queen. After driving for 2 days, halfway across the country, we were on an extremely tight schedule for our granddaughter's High School graduation. We were SO tired, we didn't realize the discrepancy, until later. Because we didn't tell the staff right away, there was no reduced price to compensate the error. I feel that they should have insured we had been assigned the right room when we checked in! Also, next door to our room, the door was opened and slammed shut over and over again, loud talking and walking up and down-just very noisy, late at night from about 10:30 pm-? The area around the vending machines had standing water in the uneven step off from the concrete to the grassy area. Just overall a very unpleasant stay!!
Rooms were in poor repair, smelled and unclean.
The staff was mildy polite.
Save yourselves. It's too late for us. The condition of our room was just disgusting. Rusted out bath tub, eroded sink, dog piss on the floor, broken AC, busted up door, and more. I slept in my cloths on top of the covers.
Location off 95 and dog friendly. Free wifi
Very thin walls with loud neighbors. Kind of sketchy area with hotel residents. Had to double lock the door. Bathroom was clean but aged and with chipped tiles and stained tub and sink. Gave us a smoking room although we asked for non smoking.
hot breakfast spacious room
I like the fact that the room was inside a building.
The description online said flat screen tv and when I ask about it she said they did not have any more rooms with flat screens. Also I ask for more pillows and she said she was not sure if that was possible.
The best part of the stay was the front desk staff. They were helpful and courteous. The air conditioner and internet worked with a little effort.
The location is near an active railroad and the trains blow their horns even after 11:00pm. Overall, the buildings were old, the ice machine inoperable and generally very noisy all night long. This wasn't guest noise but ambient noise.
The room and bathroom were dirty. The sheets didn't fit the bed. Terrible pillows.
