The visuals on the HoJo web site seemed adequate, so I booked online. Boy, are pictures deceiving! e got there, and were attacked by flies in the lobby. It was run down, and the manager... More

The rooms were clean and new looking. The fridge was super convenient. There was a Giant Supermarket nearby as well. The game... More

The hotel is convenient to local attractions. The restaurant is attached, and has reasonable prices and great food so you do not have the leave the hotel. The servers at the restaurant are pleasant and make you feel welcome. The hotel staff at check in is very friendly and helpful.

Front desk staff was very courteous and helpful. The room was pleasant, but the rug was a tad bit worn. The restaurant's breakfast buffet was well worth the money. I did not enjoy the hallway from the back of the hotel (where our room was located), the rug was worn and smelly. So we simply found an alternate way to... More

My husband and I just stayed here. The room was great until the air conditioner unit started to leak. At 11:30 pm we had to move to another room. The food was really good and the service was friendly and helpful.
