Sleep in your car

Worst hotel I’ve ever stayed at. Actually, I only stayed 30 minutes then booked a different hotel. Just disgusting. Dirty, bugs, no smoke alarm, TV broken, holes in sheets. My skin is crawling just thinking about it

Fortuna Inn & Suites, Tucson Aug 14, 2016 - Aug 1

Pros: Not a frogging thing. Guy behind the counter looked bothered when checked in.
Cons: Consider filing BK.
Location: Fortuna Inn & Suites 333 W Drachman Street, Tucson, AZ, 85705 United States of America Down Town is near.
Place is Crap. Only nice thing to say is it photographs well.

Disappointed.

Pros: The price and free Wi-Fi as well as free breakfast, which is why I choose the hotel in the first place.
Cons: Repair the leaks better to where they aren't so visible and make sure all bugs are picked up before your guests show up. I know it's hard to avoid.
Location: There were restaurants near by not sure what else; we didn't go anywhere near there.
I have stayed at other Howard Johnsons that were cleaner and not as old or worn out. I had never stayed at one with roaches laying around or water leaks and cracks in the ceiling. I kind of figured it was just an older hotel like one of their first but was not kept up as good. I was just disappointed due to the nature of most Howard Johnson's I have stayed at before. It was still comfy and clean just not as clean as I was expecting. Towels were hard like in those cheap old hotels so I guess for the price and location is was half way descent.

Worst hotel experience ever

Keep in mind that this is a HOT summer day in Tucson. Upon opening the hotel room a rush of HOT stinky air hits our faces. The room was so hot it was 95 degrees. Apparently they do not turn on the A/C for arriving guests. There was no way the room was going to cool down in order for us to have a comfortable night stay. We complained to guest services & they said they could not move us rooms because all their rooms were hot. We were unable to sleep due to how hot the room was. After a horrible restless hot night, we go to have breakfast & their idea of complementary breakfast is cereal, milk, & coffee. I would never stay at another Howard Johnson Inn again based on this experience.

You get what you pay for

Cons: Nothing close, No free Internet, Noisy
It's a cheap hotel and in not such a safe place. But, it's so cheap it's hard to turn away

Nice grounds, clean, quiet.

Pros: Free breakfast, Close restaurants, Free Internet, Quiet
We really enjoyed the food, the restraunt attached to the hotel had excellent customer service. The hotel was nice and clean. The free breakfast was'nt just waffles and muffins, it was made to order bacon and eggs, sausage, etc. Dinner was great, if you like a good hamburger, get the heart attack burger. But the low cal food was just as good! Nice pool!

We found out that they have been reported for bed bugs just two weeks earlier

Our room stunk. When we asked for another room they agreed but my husband visited several other rooms and they all stunk or teh A/C was broken. We will not go to howard johnson again.

This hotel was the worst ive ever experienced. Tub was clogged up hair found everywhere, room was filthy, pool was GREEN,door wouldn't lock!

I would never ever stay at another Howard Johnson establishment again! I asked to cancel my reservation after seeing the horrific room and they would not do it. The pool was literally green and mossy like a pond. Everything in the room was in disrepair. I believe it is actually a danger to a persons health to stay there.
