“2 nights at hojo”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

Had a laundry room and a seasonal swimming pool. Had a shuttle to the nearest metro station(cheverly metro station, not that far from the smithsonian metro station) We lost a key(2 keys for each room), and they didn't made us pay! Have to stay here again.

We got a last minute deal here on hotels.com and were attracted by the pool and free shuttle service to the nearby Cheverly metro.

The good things:

- Large rooms, comfy beds, clean - some fixtures need updating but this is an older hotel so to be expected

- Breakfast - reasonable spread, bagels, waffles, pastries and cereal

- Staff were friendly and helpful

- Convenient restaurant next door, which was fine

The bad things:

- The free shuttle service was fine in the morning (booking system, leaves on the hour) but coming back in the evening, we waited half an hour both nights to be collected, despite constant phone calls - this was a serious hassle after a long day in the city

- There is no pool! It's closed down and won't be re opening

- This hotel is a way out of the city - allow $8/person/day to get in and out of the city on the metro, but it goes only take 20 minutes

Overall, this was fine for what we needed - reasonably priced and we slept well.

Stayed August 2014

Dear Guests; Thank you for taking the time to leave us a review. I am pleased to see that overall you enjoyed your time with us and found the hotel value and service to be a very good fit for you.

I am sorry for the inconveniences you had as our guests. The shuttle has regular pick up service from Metro, we should have timed our trips differently as we were delayed by traffic. We know how much our guest enjoyed the pool and we were disappointed we had to permanently close it. Early in July a problem was found that could not be repaired, we had to drain and close it immediately.

We truly appreciate you sharing your thoughts with us so that we may continue to deliver exceptional service in the future. We hope to welcome you back in the near future and thank you again for being our guest.

Sincerely,
Sarah

We used this hotel for sleeping in after all day walking and this hotel worked fine. Everything was nice with the room and lobby. Our biggest complaint was the unreliability of the shuttle. We used it twice and waited to be picked up for over an hour both times. My advice is use this hotel if you don't need the shuttle.
