“Room reeked of old cigarette smoke”

  , Cheney
We checked a lot of on-line reviews before booking with the Gillette Ho-Jo, but were fooled!!! The room was clean, but the old carpet, drapes, everything absolutely reeked of old cigarettes. We thought it wouldn't be too bad for one night, but we were wrong. When the desk clerk asked us how our stay was, I told her that the room was clean, but had obviously been smoked in. She responded that sometimes guests sneak cigarettes in their rooms. This smell was not from an occasional recent cigarette - it was from years of people smoking in the room and not replacing carpet, drapes, mattresses, painting, etc. to even attempt to make it into a non-smoking room. Whatever Howard Johnson's criteria are for converting (or maintaining) non-smoking rooms are, this motel gets an "F" for effort and another "F" for honesty. Breakfast was sugary cereals, waffles, cheap english muffins, bagels and packaged pastries - not terrible, but absolutely nothing healthy - including the "orange juice" which really was a sugar filled half juice and half orange "drink" - ick. Unless you really like 2nd hand smoke and sugar, do not stay at this motel.
