Run down, a lot of questionable characters loiteri
Looks great in the advertising but not a nice place to stay. Run down tired property. Many questionable looking characters loitering around. Didn’t feel like it is a safe place to stay.

I was turned away from this hotel because I lost my drivers license in my mess of a mother / daughter / mastiff end of summer road trip, somewhere between the seats. I asked to be able to be given the room , and then allow me to find the DL after I had transferred my luggage, dog, and daughter, to the room, allowing more space to find my lost Between the seats drivers Iicense- as the room had been already paid for in full through Expedia. Howard Johnson’s company policy - would not allow such shenanigans. So thanks Howard Johnson , for making it so that my daughter , mastiff , self and luggage , had to just rest up in a parking lot at a truck stop in Chicago for a couple hours, listening to church to calm My worst fears - of being a single mom protecting my daughter in an truck stop at midnight in Chicago with no where to lay our heads. And thanks Expedia, for reiterating that the room was “ unrefundable” regardless of circumstance. Hope you take your daughters on a fun end of summer vacation with that extra hundred bucks that could have fed 50 starving children. Company policies just rock my world . Love, Mami

Always a nice stay. Unfortunately due to COVID-19 there was no wonderful, hot breakfast and no pool or bar use, but I understand. The thing I didn't like was that there did not seem to be any security personnel. There seemed to be an awful lot of street people, drug addicts, and strange people hanging around the hotel which made me very uncomfortable. This was my 7th time staying there and I will definitely be back next month.
