We flew in late at night. The hotel was an easy jaunt from the airport and rental car company. The room was adequate with a refrigerator and microwave. The breakfast room was crowded in the morning and was very basic - waffle maker, cereal, toast, and muffins. We ate outside around the pool which was a nice change from the... More

I tried both room keys I was given, and neither worked. Went back to the lobby and was given a room key and was told they don't have a spare, so if I lose the key, I'm locked out. I got in with the key, then couldn't figure out how to re-lock the door. The rooms are remodeled and look... More

It was good. But never got a summary when checking out and was charged more then I was told when I booked the room.

I haven't stayed at a HoJo in over 10 years, so I thought it would be fun to revisit. The location is great, as it is right across the street from a mini mall - Jamba Juice, Starbucks, TJ Maxx, etc. I read the reviews about the wi-fi and was hoping to get a room where it worked well. I... More

They wanted to move in another room but it too late because I was checking out the next day. The overall experience was nice especially room service (very... More
