Historical Traveler Reviews Hotel Country Club Gragnano
One star hotel. Period.
I travel a lot and this is, hands down, the worst place I've ever stayed. When I entered the lobby, it was dirty and only 2 employees ran the front desk. (These same 2 employees worked the desk morning, noon, and night during my 4 day stay). Just off the lobby is a chamber they like to call the "restaurant." This is actually a canteen serving bad sandwiches on styrofoam plates with plastic utensils. As for the room itself, there were hairbrushes and combs left under the beds. The carpet was so dirty, I never walked around the room without socks or shoes. The water pressure was terrible and it took more than 30 minutes just to shampoo and rinse my hair. The staff treated grumbles from customers (which was often) with a shrug of the shoulders. When I called my husband to tell him what a scuzzy place it was, he looked it up on TripAdvisor (something I wish I had done before I reserved the room). We had a good laugh with a comment that said, "the only nice thing about this hotel is the parking lot." As you can see, most of the opinions regarding this hotel are congruent with mine . . .
This place is not worth $20 dollars
Do not stay here for a trip to vegas. The shuttle service to the strip was aweful. No consistent times, so you will spend a lot of time waiting. I got this for 40 dollars a night and it was not worth it. Stay at a strip hotel, You can get something at the fromtier or westward ho for just a little more (friends stayed there and paid about the same as us). Also heard you can get the Venecian for a great price. This place is not worth it, stay somewhere else.
This place was a pit. It was dirty, sink fascett broke as was lock on door. If we hadn't flew in late we would have moved, which we did next day.
The nicest thing about this hotel is the parking lot.
Terrible atmosphere. As I was checking in a couple was checking out and told me "Don't do it!" They were staying in Las Vegas for a week and were moving to another hotel for the remaining 6 nights.
Howard Johnson should be ashamed to have their name on this place. Close it down and fix it up!!
Pick a nicer hotel for yourself
We passed by LV and stayed at HoJo during our roadtrip to the canyon national parks. The staffs weren't the friendliest I've seen, nor were they the rudest. I can smell alcohol from the hotel customers as soon as I stepped into the registration office. I was a bit shocked and thinking am I surrounded by a bunch of drunk in this hotel? but then again.. I am in Vegas.... The room was small and a bit dated but was overall clean. The carpet was fairly nice. The bed was soft and bouncy, which was a plus. There was no complimentary breakfast in the morning.
I was a bit disappointed at that. The next time I visit vegas, I would treat myself better and find myself a nicer hotel. Come on, it's Vegas!
All the great hotels Bellagio, Paris, Ceasar palace etc are all waiting for me!! But if you wanna save money on hotel rooms since these 5 stars hotels can be very expensive, I would chooce motel 6 or super 8 over HoJo. I've stayed at the Motel 6 in vegas before and I'd say it's a better place than HoJo. But overall, I've had it with the 2 star hotels in vegas, I will spoil myself the next time I am in vegas.
Way to expensive for that little room
We stayed at this place on the 14th of November. I booked it online and after a long international flight we got to our room and it was smelly and dirty. The beds were old and worn and the room was really small.
The room smelled musky and it took forever to get fresh air going. The bedding had holes and the matresses were really old. The bathroom was old and dirty. We paid $88 for one night and never again. The management was friendly though. They had asked us if we would like ground floor or first floor. They had construction going and it was pretty dirty arround the hotel and pool. I will never again pay that much money for such a room. If you can, look for a nicer one on the strip.
Howard Johnson LV Airport --keep traveling
I stayed at the Howard Johnson LV Airport October 2003. I booked my travel through Expedia and had narrowed choices down to 3 hotels based on Price/Location and Amenities of the rooms. Well I gambled on this hotel and lost. Hotel is rundown from the word go. Driving up to the hotel from the airport no signs to direct you to the front. Front desk and lobby no smokey smell like some of these little hotels. First thing I was told when checking in was we don't have a king non-smoking. That was okay just a non-smoking room was fine. Pulled around to the little courtyard/parking lot by my room and found the ice machine located at the entrance of the parking area. My room was dark and VERY WORN looking. Positive bed and linen were clean with no stains. Funiture on the other hand were again worn and had some stains I was very careful about how I placed my clothing or personal items in the storage areas.
Amenities of the room were to be coffe/tea maker, hairdryer, microwave/refrigerator, etc. We had a coffee maker but no coffeepot, or supplies for coffe and not a cup in the whole room. When I called the front desk the answer was, "Well we are taking those out of rooms" and "Yes you can have some cups". Well the cups never showed up until the next day. Thank goodness no micro/refrig can only imangine how nasty those items could have been. (I shudder to think of it!). No hairdryer so had to go out and buy one. I try not to overpack when traveling by air and if the hotel provides something I not bring an extra. Several patches on walls and ceilings were waterdamaged and cracked. Bathroom was small and starting to age very badly. In short this hotel is Cheap, close to airport/strip if thats all you want that is all you will get.
If you want more from your hotel stay in Las Vegas go some where else.
For my trip I wish I would have stayed downtown or in the hotel where my convention was. EH from IN
Nasty Room, Atmosphere, & Environment
After checking in the rooms that were assigned I found the rooms to horrendous. They were suppose to be non-smoking rooms. They smelled like smoke. The bathroom shower had corrosion and mildew all around the tile and tub. The phone kept ringing for the few minutes we were in there. The rooms were not clean. Thats why the rates are so cheap.The Lobby had a smell. I immediately checked out and looked for somewhere else to stay. I had very unhelpful conversations with the staff. They were very rude and a foreign manager name TU was yelling and very unprofessional. Tom-Sales Dept acted as if he had something to hide due to the fact that I booked through Neat Group (don't go through this company, very rude compnay also) he did not want to discuss with me about their rates. Howard Johnson will never ever get my or any of my family and friends business again. I will spread the word to any and everyone who will listen, about my horrendous experience at THE HOWARD JOHNSON INN-, Las Vegas, NV...!!!!!!!!!
I spent the night of 10 June 2003 at Howard Johnson Inn, Airport and was very disappointed. The room was very small and dirty. The lobby area was not much better. The morning crew in the lobby didn't have a professional appearance or attitude. I was very happy to depart for the airport early in the morning (the hotel does have a shuttle to the airport - which was nice). My recommendation is to stay somewhere else.
Best Western McCarran, just down the street is somewhat better (I stayed there in October 2002).
Howard Hohnsons by the airport..WARNING
FYI.... I stayed at the Howard Johsons by the airport. Upon arrival I could not get into my room until 4pm. Then I get in the room she said she was giving me an upgraded room cause I had to wait so long. My Gosh was a pit. The curtains didnt close tight, the SMOKE alarm was beeping and remote for TV didnt work. Hair in the sink and tub, etc ..etc. I called the front desk because of the smoke alarm beeping, I was told I had to wait until 11PM until a maintence guy came in. I said well I think I could figure it out and change it myself. So I had to go get the batteries and I attemmpted to change it. Well the thing was rusted in there. So I called again and firmly requested someone to change it for me. Then after this, I went to the lounge to order something to eat, well the bartender had the MOST FOUL mouth I have ever heard. Needless to say, I will not be staying there again, I was afarid to complain, dont know how upset they would be and did not feel secure if I did say something.

9/3 Day 74 We started out the day recovering in our camp at Circus Circus. It has been a long time since Peg and I led the party life and came in at 1:30 in the morning. That was after going to Vegas the Show. Then we had a day of running around doing chores.
Actually we had a heck of a scare last night. I thought I had lost a whole day's set of pictures. My routine is to come back to the camper and downloads all the photos for the day off the camera and ...
... one location, in Paris up the road and in a pyramid shaped hotel further down the strip. Part of our explorations took us down onto the casino floor, a more depressing spectacle you'd be hard pushed to find. Don't get me wrong, some of the card tables, roulette wheels and ***** (dice) games looked fun and at least there was some human interaction. But the majority of the floor space appeared to be dedicated to slot machines, occupied by zombies ...
Yesterday we headed out of California and back to Nevada, we drove down the side of the Sierra Nevada mountain range until we got to Death Valley national park, the sixth largest national park and the largest outside Alaska. As we drove the environment got drier and more barren, the ground had occasional sage bushes and Joshua trees, but not a lot of vegetation. We drove into the first of the valleys that makes up the national park first, and then had a long climb. Gordon the ...
