Stayed at this Hotel after arriving in Gananoque late in the afternoon. We didn't have a booking but were fortunate they had a room for us. I have read other reviews since our stay and there are several references to the cheap tariff. Our room certainly was not cheap even though it was low season! The room was very average but clean enough. There was a smoke smell, the source of this we found was a full ashtray on the ground next to the door to our unit. The breakfast was very ordinary and lucky it was complimentary because you certainly wouldn't pay for it. There was no hot water left by the time we sat down (8am) and everything else also needed replenishing and the benches needed cleaning. Overall it met our overnight needs but we would look elsewhere for accommodation if ever in the area again.

Close to 401, good price, walking distance to restaurants.
Complementary breakfast not available to 7:30, but we had to hit the road earlier.

Location of the hotel was easy find, The beds were very comfortable. The continental breakfast was what we expected. Free WIFI allowed us to keep in touch with family at home.

Not at all like the pictures. Although it was very clean, it was very,very, very old and rundown. In need of some major repairs and updates to the room.

At a recent stay, we left our umbrella in our room and didn't realize it until after checking out.
A few hours later we returned to pick it up. The same front desk rep we had dealt with during our entire stay contacted one of the two person room cleaning team who confirmed they had indeed found our umbrella. Problem is she gave it to her associate to 'put away'.

The front desk rep then contacted the second cleaning associate and then returned to inform us that 'no umbrella ever existed.'

This experience has little to do with the loss of a $50 - $70 Umbrella but has everything to do with lying and thievery. We realise every HoJo location is independently owned and that HQ has little control over such matters but they clearly need to establish standards in this regard.

This single experience will prohibit us from ever using any HoJo property again in future.
