Great price and value for this hotel. Spent 7 days with my wife and 7 year old son. The service was outstanding! Close to everything in Tampa , St. Petes and even Clearwater.
Breakfast was decent, hot waffles, bagels, cereal, fruit and fresh coffee daily.
I would highly recommend staying at HOJO's. Only negative make sure they clean the carpets regularly in your room and they did that for us.

Pool was heated at about 85 degrees. The staff was friendly and courteous.

You won't getter value for the price of your stay !

Location, location, location...this is the place to be! There are plenty of places to go up and down Mabry street. St. Pete's is only 15 minutes away and we were abe to visit plenty of other shopping centers. The manager, Mrs. Cruz, and her staff were incredible! The rooms were clean, quiet neighborhood and there is a public park around the corner. The breakfast in the morning is more than what was expected. I only wish we could have stayed longer! We are definitely booking here for our next visit!Thank you Mrs. Cruz for your devotion and service!
