“I can stand it for 2 nights...I think.”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed July 8, 2009

Wish I'd read these reviews before I booked 3 rooms here. Phrg34 is right, this is a working mans motel. Thank goodness I'm a working man with house shoes and air freshener. HOJO was the only place in town with 3 rooms available. Hmmm...wonder why that was? Monroe was a little farther from the job site, but it would be worth getting up a little earlier for a nicer place to stay. Oh well, live and learn. I'll stand it for 2 nights, just hope if there's a party or some gun fire it's on the other side of the joint.

I have been coming to this hotel for 30 years and it used to be a great place to stay when I come home. It was always a home away from home, however after my stay there the weekend of Feb 28,2009, I will never ever live there again. the rooms were dirty, nasty and the heat did not work. My room was not cleaned, and the service was horrible. I would never ever tell anyone else about this hotel.

After having a major accident with my motorhome. Trying to home in my towed vehicle. I had no luggage and a dog. You travel with a dog and you got problems. HOJO is really a working guy hotel but it was perfect for us. Not the cleaniest but a port when you are exhausted. Yes I would stay again. Wear your socks all the time and stay off the bed cover.

Upon check in, the clerk was on a very important phone call and took a long while to check me in.

When I walked in the door of my room, my nose would start twitching! If you have allergies...BEWARE! This is unclean, Moldy, smelly and the floor was constantly wet because of the AC. I told the staff everyday about it and nothing happened!

I also lost some jewelry while staying there!!! (Apparently, it got 'thrown away')

If you want to work out in the gym, bring your own oil... very squeaky!

This was my worst experience in Ruston!

One of the worst hotels I've stayed in. Rooms are horrible, they smell and are dirty. Lots of people from New Orleans staying there. They have their pets and are very noisy and rude. Don't do it! Sleep in your car and shower at the YMCA!
