This hotel had mold, mildew, unclean beds, stained carpets, crust on the blankets and more. It was so terrible we slept with the lights on and didn't bother to report it because it was too much to report and too much to fix. We just left.

You don't get a king bed room for $49 ( with coupon ) and complain. The TV is an old tube model and the WIFI wouldn't work on my laptop but oddly enough it worked fine on my phone. The room was clean and comfortable. That is what counts. Breakfast of cereal, toast and coffee included.

There were 6 of us on a motorcycle trip heading home. We started looking for rooms in Chattanooga, TN and this was the first available we could find....

Limited service was very good. Reception was vey helpful. Hotel was bare bones- no pool, small towels. We were there on bid day/move-in weekend when everything is sold out and it worked. Bathroom could have been cleaner. Easy access to campus.

He had a terrible experience at this Howard Johnson. First of all, they had road construction going on in front of the hotel and the only way to get in the parking lot was to go through the parking lot of the "Western Hotel" behind the Howard Johnson. This in itself was a scary site. I felt very unsecure even...
