“Not even close”

  , Barrie
First, this is what I call a rundown pay by the hour motel, if you catch my drift. The whole building is in a major need of overhaul if not tear down and rebuild. The lobby was half the size of my small shed and not attractive at all and, at check out time, the guy behind the tiny counter was sprawled across a chair with his bare feet propped up on the counter. The room, room 114 and a smoke free room, smelled of cigarettes, the carpet flooring was stained and appeared dirty. The heavy curtain that covered the window also covered the AC, which did not allow the cool air to circulate, and it was covered in mold in the area where the cold air gets trapped. The bed covers also had stains on them. The bathroom had crumbs of who knows what on the sink counter, many long black hair in and around the tub area, a clogged shower head that sprayed only from the center, and a tub faucet which was all crusty and sticking out from where it was supposed to have been mounted flush to the tub. I expected something with the name "Howard Johnson" attached to it to be a lot better than this or actually not even associated with this. And if Howard Johnson wants to keep their costumers, they should pay a visit to these express hotels associated with their name. I was absolutely disgusted and would have left immediately if that had been an option. In addition, when I checked in, the clerk charged me an additional $100.00 which he said would be returned the next day at check out. I assume it was some form of damage deposit but it was not mentioned in the online booking. As if I could have caused any damage to this rat hole, wow. To say the least, I was not at all impressed by this dirty and disgusting excuse for a hotel.
