Howard Johnsons Hotel Complaint - Nastiest Place to stay
TAMPA, FLORIDA -- I WILL never stay @ the nastiest hotel Howard Johnsons again.If I had not been so late (1:00 AM)I would have thought ask to see the room first before deciding to stay. I made reservations on-line & figured it being in Tampa Fl it would be good.It sure wasn't! I am a former hotel/motel employee & I stay @ many motels/hotels.I know what I want in a room, being clean is most important! having working lights,TV Toilet Etc...
I do know housekeeping doesn
t get a lot of time to spend cleaning rooms but I think they should be able to team up & do a more thorough job.We found marijuana seeds & small buds in the nightstand,seeds on the floor,burnt matches under the beds along with change, gum, candy wrappers,& a sonic receipt from 2 days before my stay. Two lamps didn't work, on/off on remote for tv didn't work upon pulling the desk & dresser out a bit to plug in my laptop there were many little scraps of paper & candy wraps,dead bugs in webs,carpet was ATTROCIOUS!! I am a smoker so I requested a smoking room nicotine was all over the walls, dirt spots all over the walls,the bathroom was so disgusting we didn't bother to shower.Mold in cracks around shower,bottom of bathtub needed a good bleaching/scrubbing,dirt in all corners,dirt around base of toilet,towel rack coming away from wall, looked like an attempt to fix with caulk failed.2x2 area on wall was patched but cracked & painted instead of rightly repaired.Blow dryer had God only knows what all over it. The vent in the bathroom was so dirty & dusty as well. I woke up several times feeling like something was crawling on me.The ONLY thing in the whole room that looked decent was the counter top in the bathroom. At nearly $70/night i think this is ridiculous! If I were to have EVER left a room looking that bad I would have been FIRED! If I were to be a manager or owner there I WOULD FIRE! There is no excuse to see such FILTH in a hotel room.I have stayed in $28/night rooms cleaner than this! i have stayed in $150/night & they were dirty as well, does that make sense?? I took pictures & want to know where the best place to send them.These hotel/motel owners/managers DON'T CARE & thats a shame! they should stay in those rooms for a night!Better yet they need to do EXPECTATIONS often to make sure they dont get such complaints.I usually just chose to never stay @ the chains that are so bad & never go to the manager & complain, but I'm tired of spending my HARD EARNED AMERICAN DOLLARS on Dumps mostly owned by NON-AMERICANS!!!!!
