Not worth it

I remember when Howard Johnson hotels were nice. After the first night there a roach was found in the room and still moving. There were two workers who were nice but the others weren't. After being moved to another nonsmoking room, cigarette holes were found in the bedspread and there was a hole in the bathroom door. The man working there became upset and even the housekeeper became uncomfortable.

Horrible hotel.unavailable staff. Disgusting room.

When we first arrived I noticed the room was not clean. The tables and bathroom seriously needed a wipe down. I realize it was one of the cheaper hotels but it should at the very least be clean. So I went out and bought lysol and CLEANED THE ROOM MYSELF. The all the appliances were very obviously old and worn, but ok, cheap hotel. We sprayed the sheets too cuz they looked a little gross, and found stains all over the bedding.and some of the other sheets were torn. The lighting was dark and dingy, and I was a little afraid to go in the bathroom cuz it was so dark, but I had to take a shower. So I started to take a shower, and the tub would not drain, and the water started getting dark. MORTIFIED, I called the main desk. No answer. Called and called. Finally someone answered and I told them what happened, asked to be moved to another room for the night so we could bathe at least and the man said that the manager was not there and wouldn't be till the next morning. So he couldn't move us, or refund us. So we couldnt leave! We already paid! So we roughed it out for the night cuz my baby was already asleep. But I woke up super early and demanded to speak to the manager. Still no sign of someone in charge. So I called Travelocity and they helped me get out of that dump. NEVER AGAIN AM I STAYING IN A HOWARD JOHNSON. esp. Not in SAN MARCOS!!!!!!
