No customer service at all

They take a reservation for a smoking room and then when we went to check-in we are told that the entire property is non-smoking and the clerk made it out to be our issue not the company for booking a room that they don't offer . There was nothing done by the rep to make it right just attitude and blame... We will NOT be using this place EVER!!!

Awful place!

I reserved three rooms at this hotel and they were all awful. The rooms did not have towels, toilet paper, tv remotes didn't work, smelled bad, stains everywhere and elevator was broken. One of the rooms had a clogged up toilet with urine inside of it. The towels were all stained. We felt unsafe and disgusted. We did not stay!

Little to comment.

Pros: The breakfast was fine. The price was right.
Cons: better maintenance of the stair well.
Location: we were only there for 7 hours.
The clerk had trouble getting the rooms. It was three a.m. so not to blame her, it took a little long. The elevator wasn't working, the stairs were filthy. There was no irons available.

Not safe and not clean!

Pros: absolutely nothing.
Cons: pretty much everything.
Location: not a good area. very close to stockton arena, but not safe.
Seriously, if you haven't booked here yet, do yourself a favor and stay away. I had a late arrival, but i called ahead to make sure i can check in late. I arrived at 3:20am after driving 7 hours. There was a "lady of the night" milling about. There was a sign on the door that said "Come back at 3:30" so I waited in my car, alone for 10 minutes. Luckily, they re-opened at 3:30. The clerk was friendly and apologetic. I checked in for my 3 night stay, and was given my key and told where my room was, around back. The parking lot was super dark, and as a woman traveling alone, i felt unsafe. I walked to my upstairs room and was immediately disgusted. The carpet was not vacuumed, and there were bits everywhere. I kept my shoes on at all times except in bed. The bed's headboard was totally broken and crooked. There was a small couch that had tons of white stains. I didn't want to think about the stains and just hoped it was dog drool since it's a pet friendly hotel. There were white stains on the carpet next to the bed, and dark stains, too. Since I had to be up at 8am, and i had a long drive, i just wanted to sleep. The sink was decent and toilet was really old. Took about 10 loud minutes to get the tank filled up after a flush. I didn't check for bed bugs and just wanted to get the first night over with. I woke up at 8, changed my clothes, brushed my teeth, grabbed my bag, and went directly to the front desk and checked out early. Worst experience ever.

The staff at this Howard Johnson was excellent! Very helpful and friendly. The room was clean and fairly quiet, given the proximity to a major intersection.
