Good value for the area. It's not the best place I've ever stayed but it's certainly not the worst. I've stated in far worse and paid far more. Rooms have microwaves, refrigerators, and wifi so all my essentials were met.

The room was reasonably clean, cleaner than expected for a hojo. Very helpful service. I had a package delivered and they had it waiting for me when I arrived. We asked about places to eat and a cab company to take. Pool was too warm to enjoy, and the clientele hanging around the pool was undesirable.

Front desk clerk was very dismissive and seems very bored and irritated about having to talk to people. Room was ok. Hotel under renovations so partially updated. Air conditioner worked great. Tv very old and the microwave was clearly from the 1980s. For $80 there are better places to stay.

I was a bit leery as we drove up to the old outdated building with the big orange roof. The room was very nice and clean. The bed slept well and I believe the room is worth the price compared to ones a little bit closer to downtown. It is located only 2-3 miles from everything. The room has a... More
