Royal Oak, Michigan
Reviewed 9 September 2015

The Howard Johnson in Rockford, IL was not what we expected and didn't reflect the reviews. Old, dirty, smells and not a good area. We asked to be moved and there were no other rooms that were even remotely okay to stay in not to mention no sprinkler systems in the rooms.
