- Disliked: Staff & service
We actually did not get to stay at the university lodge. After booking months in advance of family weekend at UMASS, we were called a few days before to be told they didn’t have a room for us but that they were going to move us to their other hotel The Howard Johnson. Upon check in and my usual inspection of hotel rooms I discovered what appeared to be a giant mold spot on one mattress and what appeared to be blood spots all along the seam of the other...no thank you! Checked out, asked for a refund and then drove the 2.5 hours home after the hockey game.
