Nov.3rd It was my first time staying in HoJo, most of them get bad rep. But I have to say, very impress with the hotel. Easily located off Hwy 11. Cannot miss it, it is right next to “Gravenhurst signature welcome” and the “big yellow muskoka chair”. It has fair size parking lot and the lobby has a nice touch... More

There is all to do around this hotel. Shopping for whole family is near by. Staff were very friendly and rooms very clean. Price is perfect! We came to see family and needed a reasonable place to stay that was close by and it was a perfect match for us.

I liked everything in the room and the comfort of the beds. I am an exhibiter at shows in town and I have enough show costs and the $70.00 for a single room was a welcome site! Continental breakfast would be great , but Tims was down the street.

We have stayed at this hotel twice a year for the past several years. We have always had a clean room. Bedding is quite new, clean and comfortable. Staff have always been friendly and helpful. The only suggestion that I would make is that the hotel provide garbage containers in the parking lot - for the slobs who like to... More

I read some of the other reviews and I thought I might write one that gives a good honest overview. My wife and I go to a number of 2 day conferences, so we always we look for a good inexpensive hotel. We have stayed at the $ 300 per night hotels and you get what you pay for. This... More

This hotel is an absolute dump. The whole place has a nasty smell to it. Our room really smelled bad! Carpets and bedding were really outdated. The air conditioner worked, but the shower was either scalding hot or ice cold. The window opened, but the screen was so badly damaged it actually fell out!! Thank god we were only staying... More

Thank you for taking the time to let us know about the problems that need to be corrected. Our housekeeping staff should have done a better job cleaning the carpet. On the other hand, our bedding is brand new. It is the standard bedding that you would see in all Wyndham properties. More

I have no problems what so ever in recommending this hotel. We have booked many rooms and there have been no problems. We have booked rooms from February till August and staff was very pleasant to speak to. I have no hesitations in recommending this hotel. We have found the rooms and hotel very clean.
