We were heading from FL to CT and stopped here to sleep. I was a little weary after reading the reviews but we tried it anyways. The price was average. The staff was polite. The room smelled fine. There were some stains on the pillow cases so we didn't use the pillows. The bathroom looked kind of gross like it... More

This hotel is just terrible! Never ever will stay again. Shower curtain rod was broke, the bathroom door had no lock. They only gave us TWO towels for 4 people. The hallway ceiling looked like it was about to fall in. And the breakfast was terrible. The pool water was dingy and green and I refused to let my son... More

I understand that $36 a night is a really low price but I guess you get what you pay for with Howard Johnson in Petersburg, Virginia. This was probably the worst stay I have ever had at a hotel.
