Sylvia from Washington, DC US rated Howard Johnson Washington District 8 out of 10 on June 12, 2010
"ALthough the rooms were clean, the hotel was run down and dirty with uncleaned substances on the stairs and walkways. It was in an area with many hookers on the street and people hanging around the hotel that made us VERY uncomfortable. As we left there was a broken into suitcase in the parking lot with clothes spilling out. We received calls from hookers in our room and one night someone knocked many times on our door at 1 AM!!!"
Pauline from West Charlton, NY US rated Howard Johnson Washington District 2 out of 10 on May 20, 2006
