The elevator down to the pool area smelled like a toilet in a back ally bar and looked like it had perhaps been used as such on many occasions. There was graffiti on the wall and a staggering amount of dirt, presumably accumulated after many months of neglect by Howard Johnson staff. On the pool level the elevator doors opened to reveal a heavily stained carpet that looked as if someone may well have been brutally murdered in that very spot just a few days prior to my visit. Decorative plants were left dead or dying in shabby display units that lined the dirty walled and stained carpeted corridor that lead to the pool.
Yikes, can you imagine staying at this place?
