It's a cheap hotel, thin walls, small TV. But for the price ,not bad at all. The staff are friendly, there's decent food in the restaurant at reasonable prices. There's even a little shop though I didn't check out the wares, probably toiletries, snack and so forth. A lot of airline staff stay here before or after flights before traveling... More

1.Housekeeping didn't clean our room properly. They didn't wash the bathtub, clean the mirror or vaccum the room. 2. None of the machines in the gym are working. 3. Barely any option on the menu at the restaurant, however the service was excellent.

Have come to expect a quality experience at this hotel and this visit was no exception. All staffers, including airport shuttle drivers, were very polite and helpful. Good value for the price. No complaints at all. Thank you.

We will not be going there anytime soon and I hate to see other HoJo establishments. Here are my complaints with this hotel. 1) The front desk attendants were not... More

It was alright for the most part. One thing to watch out for though, is the size of the beds. We got a room that was supposed to have two "full" beds since we were three people. Anyway, when we got to the room, to our surprise the mattress was queen size but the bed was a lot smaller. Therefore,... More
