So my freinds and I, 30 somethings with kids looking to get away for a little moms Bangor shopping weekend, booked the Howard Johnson's in Bangor. We weren't looking for something fancy, just a place to rest our heads between shopping. We check in Friday night at 12am, after some shopping of course, to find that someone had slept in one of the double beds in our room. I am serious, look at pic attached. This was what we walked into the first night. We called the front desk and they said there were no more rooms and that she would send someone up with clean sheets if we were going to stay (it was 1230am at this time, we are from Canada, where were we going). We said yes and while waiting for the sheets made sure no one was in our room. We did discover that the hand towel in the bathroom had tomatoe sauce all over it (maybe the person who had taken a nap in our room also had some lunch and then wiped his/her face). We called to the front desk again to ask for clean towels. When the maid arrived I joked that the cleaning lady must of taken a nap in our room that day and the maid said "that must of been where she was when I was looking for her.." - then the maid went on to say "you don't even want to know who cleaned your room, really you don't want to know...but she will be cleaning your room again tomorrow..." So we barely slept the first night because we were expecting someone to walk in. The next day while shopping we joked that someone was probably in our room sleeping. Can you believe that when we went back the second night there was a head print on the pillow on one of the beds and the blanket was turned back. So untop of what ever was going on there, the place was disgusting! I don't think the place was ever cleaned in the time it has been open. The mirrors had splatters of dirt all over them and the phone cord was brown. There was chips all around the bed and hair around the sink. Anyway, unless you like dirt and someone napping in your bed while you are not there, I suggest you go somewhere else. This place is GROSS.
