The hotel location was great, with parking. The hotel was good for one night. The breakfast was good and it was at the 10th floor with excellent view.

Old everything in the room. Did i mention it was dirty! They replied that the staff would come and clean it thoroughly... More

Good location close to the beach and places to eat. But front desk took 30 min to tell some directions to another guest. My room supposed to have a small refrigerator, guess what? None.

Overall the hotel was solid. My GF and I were just spending the night before checking in to a big resort on day 2 of our trip. Overall the room was more than adequate. It was close to the airport and generally well kept with friendly staff.

Just needed one overnight flight between flights, and have to say I was totally surprised that this HoJo was unlike any preconceived idea I had of what a HoJo was like--indeed, this was like a more expensive hotel, like a Wyndham. Across the street to the beach! Rooms very modern, nicely appointed, and staff extremely helpful. Our luggage was delivered... More
