My trip to Stockton, CA was a trip to hell. Stayed at Howard Johnson at 33 N Center Street on Sept 10, 2013. Got key and headed to room, maid told me room wasn’t cleaned. Flying all day very tired, so I told her to clean room and I would wait. Reason for staying there was it’s a HOJO, close to highway I needed, car rental, and the pictures of the rooms were very nice. Didn’t know anything about Stockton except how to get to car rental and go to this hotel. I would have left in a New York minute, if I knew where other hotels were…
Now let me tell you, room was nothing like the pictures they have on internet for this hotel. It had not be renovated since the "50s". The smell was awful, the rugs were worn out, and dirty, the curtains were pinned with safety pins because they were smaller than the window. The sheets were so thin I could see through them. She threw the bedspread and blanket on floor and made bed. She dusted with some spray bottle all over the room. The bath room, I did see her clean the toilet, but didn’t see her do anything to the tub. The overflow was a big rusty hole. Nasty looking like something could crawl out of it. So I didn’t take bath. I used hand wipes to clean after her, and then I touched things. I wanted to order a pizza and tried to call out and couldn’t. Phone was very dirty and nasty. Called front desk and was told phone was out and “IT” man hadn’t come to fix it. Said to come up front and use their phone, told her I was handicapped and couldn’t walk that far, so she called for me.
Morning couldn’t come fast enough for me to check out.
