Was doing just fine until there was a fire alarm at 7:30 a.m. and I had to go outside in 30 degree weather in shorts and the fire alarm was a prank.

Apologies for the fire alarm going off early in the morning. Yes, it was a prank and although someone admitted to it later we were mortified. That is the first time in my 7 months at the property that such a thing has happened. Apologies again and hope that this guest will return and give us another chance to give... More

The location is right were all the other hotels are. It's not perfect but it's still great hotel. If you need a place to stay hear and don't want to... More

We staying in the suite. Hopefully with the remodel there will be new sofa beds as the ones there now are pretty bad. We weren't even sure there were clean sheets on them and after going down for some were given some extra bedding. The breakfast was just OK but did the trick. The staff were all very friendly and...

Here 1 night, in town for Garth Brooks. Booked on line for $50, king bed. Well worth it, large clean room ground floor. Staff nice and friendly, soda's only $1 from the machines, parking right there, decent breakfast included as well. fuel and restaurants close by. Well worth the $, don't shy away from Ho-Jo's at least not this one.

We have an indoor Jacuzzi/hot tub that is open year-round and we are conveniently located just off I-75 at exit 110 close to shopping, Walmart and numerous wonderful restaurants. For the money we are the best... More

I stayed here on 11/15 and it was my 2nd visit at this particular hotel. Had a good visit the first stay, so I decided to try it again. The location is absolutely great, with a Cracker Barrel in walking distance, gas stations and a Walmart less than a mile away. As for the actual hotel, great staff!! Rooms were... More

The regency suite was spacious but not as updated as the pictures suggested. The beds were clean and neat w nice linens but the bathroom had black marble and brass fixtures that were corrode from the 80s. The floor in the bathroom could have been cleaner and the shower looked like it had soap scum on it near the bottom.... More
