Urban legend goes that this establishment was closed when it was discovered that staff were using part of the hotel as a meth lab. Take that story as you will, but one thing is for sure, the Howard Johnson in Aurora was always in shambles.

Unfortunately I was only able to get inside into a small room before hitting a locked door. However entry is possible and comes and goes, until then I wait anxiously for interior exploration.

    I've seen cops chilling in the back parking lot. Seems this place is quite monitored, as I walked around the building to find a POE and was greeted by security cameras, padlocks and boarded windows. However, I could still see the remains of the hotel rooms through a window, so I'm sure everything has been left inside the building.
