“great staff”

  , Viroqua
All the staff, but particularly the shuttle driver Michael as well as the maintenance man who changed the battery on the fire alarm and the man who was at the desk on the night of Monday Dec 17, and the young woman who checked me in, were friendly and helpful and caring in a very warm manner. I was very surprised to have that experience since I have stayed at many hotels, mostly Hampton Inns, Westin, Holiday INns and Comfort Suites. This was my first Howard Johnson's experience. I chose it because it had a shuttle from the airport and because it was a reasonable taxi ride to my appointment. I would makeasuggestion for improvement - the bed. The bed (there were two and I tried them both) were both uncomfortable. Perhaps they are too old and have lost their support. THe mattress was extremely springy and not very well padded. I could feel the springs and the entire bed springing whenever I moved a limb, which was unsettling. I am 5'6 and weigh 130lbs. This would make me think twice about a future good night's rest at Howard Johnson's.Also, the old computer that is in the lobby is unusable. It is so poorly maintained and filled with problematic issues that to even have it there at all is extremely frustrating. It is better not to have one thereat all than to lead your customers to believe that there is hope of having an easy tool for researching area directions or venues. I would suggest you update your computer situation so that a traveller can find their destinations and other points of interest like they could at any other hotel lobby or business center.
