“Disappointment”

  , Dade City
We were in town for a family reunion. On arrival we were very pleased - room was clean and looked comfortable(we had a king-sized bed) equipped with nice desk and sofa. TV reception was not great and selections were limited. We were next door to Atlanta Bread Company and enjoyed a nice dinner there. The location was convenient - with many eating establishments nearby. In fact, it was ideal UNTIL I awoke and went in to take a shower - was unable to turn on the water - waited for my husband to try and he tried every option imaginable and could not turn on. We went down for our "Continental Breakfast" and I reported to the desk clerk that we could not turn on the shower and he said "I hear that all the time" - that was it and I said well I guess I need to complain to someone with higher authority - got no reply. Then went over to the breakfast bar and made coffee and then looked at choices available - cereal w/milk, poppyseed muffins and chocolate chip muffins, bread for toast, waffle machine w/batter pitcher and a juice machine (NO PROTEIN except for the milk) Took 2 muffins and went to get orange juice - it looked like pale yellow water - needless to say we did not drink it. I then walked across the street to Dunkin Donuts and bought breakfast sandwiches and when I returned my husband said they were going to fix the shower. We hurried back to the room and thirty-five minutes later a gentleman came in that we could not communicate with and went into the shower and came back out and said "It working" and motioned for me to come - and he showed me how to PULL on the faucet and turn the shower on - by this time we had twenty minutes before we needed to leave - so NO SHOWER. Original intention was to spend two nights but decided to check out instead. When I went to checkout the manager was there and I expressed our experience and she said "You have to pull hard and slowly on the handle to turn on the water" I told her if that was the case that there should be a note in the bathroom explaining - we were afraid to pull any harder for fear we would break or pull off the handle. I also complained about breakfast selections - she replied "It continental breakfast" I told her that there was an empty hot buffet container that most motels serve eggs and sausage in. Needless to say we will not be returning and have told other family members of our experience. We will continue to stay at other Howard Johnson's BUT ck out prior to signing in.
