This hotel is really old with out dated furniture, it has poor drainage in the shower and behind the beds it's very dusty and dirty, I will not recommend staying at this hotel, sorry for being honest.

This property needs to be cleaned, at a bare minimum. Beyond that, the old musty damp carpets should be replaced and the stained walls painted.

The breakfast was the poorest I have seen. Service from the management was exhalant. I will stay there again, but I will eat elsewhere, about 10 blocks North on 44th.

At least it was relatively cheap. The room was a pigsty, the bedside lights did not work. Apparently they had already sold my room despite that it was paid for already. It is only about 20 bucks more for a decent hotel. I am dying to know how come this hotel seemed to have 3 stars? By what rating system?...

I've been to the Howard Johnson in California so I read right pass these reviews and booked a room. I got there about 4pm; front desk lady was rude. I'll leave it at that.
