HoJos has a great location in Mystic. You can walk to the Seaport, Aquarium and Old Mystic shopping village. The town of Mystic is a few mile drive. Hotel is clean and pleasant at about $150 with taxes. Mystic Diner and Friendlies are in the same parking lot.

I want to thank the front desk for help with my Priceline reservations. Not only did I cancel Priceline but the staff offered me a lesser rate and upgrade. So thankful. The room was clean and the my children enjoyed the pool and free Wi-Fi. The hotel is central to everything and I walked to many of the places we... More

An older basic hotel in a convenient location. We stayed in room 219 which was clean but dated. Bed comfortable, but furniture needs updating. Room needs better lighting. TV partially obstructs wall mirror, which was annoying. Indoor pool clean and well-maintained and pool deck area with lounges and deck chairs very nice. Attractive lobby. Friendly staff. For the price, certainly... More

This is a 60's motel. Good points are location- across from Mystic Village and next to a diner, 5 minutes from the seaport and 15 minutes to downtown Mystic, 20 minutes to Mohegan Sun. Bad points -after you get by the redone lobby, old fixtures, wallpaper and carpeting; sanitized smell in hallways and mildewy small rooms. Just the basics and... More

We were originally going to stay for four nights but turned it into five since the little ones were having a blast. Check in was a breeze and they accommodated my request to stay on... More

Price was great for King Room- $87 total. Pool could be bigger and was crowded for a Wed night. The worse thing was the pool seemed too full of chemicals to me, but I am super-sensitive to odors and chemicals. The room was good size, tv channels were good for my 8 year old companion too. Overall, great price for... More

Hello and thank you for letting us know about your recent stay with us. We are pleased it was a good one. Our indoor pool is the most popular amenity we offer and it does indeed get crowded at times.
