Verified Reviews of Howard Johnson by Wyndham Waukegan Great Lakes

Below are the verified reviews from guests that we have booked recently:
"Would not stay here again."
Overall Score4.0/ 5
The rooms were clean and the cleaning lady was wonderful. That was the positive. But…before you walk in there’s a big sign that says they are a smoke free building. Entering the lobby there was a HUGE smell of marijuana. There is no way the personnel could have missed that. Going up the stairs it grew A LOT stronger. We went down the back stairs to unload and there were two young men sprawled on the stairs passing a joint between them. They were nice and got up to let us pass though! The back exit door was propped open so anybody could come and go. That night, several guys went to the door across from us, knocking and yelling to be let in, carrying what looked like a hookah and alcohol. They had an all night party and the hallway was filled with the smell of pot. Our room overlooked the parking lot and there was a crowd of loud kids there for most of the night. I’ve never left a bad review anywhere before, but I would NOT stay here again….

"Horrible Stuff"
Overall Score2.0/ 5
Very unfriendly and unprofessional stuff at night. My room was dirty and shower/bathroom wasn’t working properly. Would definitely not recommend that place to anyone.
