The hotel looks to be newly renovated and is vey clean and roomy. The main area where the breakfast was served was nice. The staff was friendly. The one thing that was bad is that the Internet was intermittent.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 6, 2013

My family stayed at the HoJo the first weekend of May 2013. I made my reservation at this hotel because it got such a high rating on Trip Advisor (and since it was still the off-season, was only $60/night for 2 queen beds). I was a bit skeptical that a "motel" would have such high marks, but I was surprisingly very pleased with our room. Turns out, all the rooms are new; new carpet, newer cherry furnishings, flat screen tv, the bathroom was completely redone. In room coffee, hair dryer, small fridge. The lobby was very clean, nicely decorated, comfortable seating with fireplace. The continental breakfast (cereal, oatmeal, toast, juice, coffee) was basic but enough to start the day. They have a seasonal outdoor pool that wasn't open during our visit. And since it's motel-like and you enter all the rooms from the outside, you don't hear all the hallway noise of people walking or doors slamming. And it's right on the main drag in Traverse City, across the street from mini-golf and a short drive or walk away from the downtown. I'll definitely stay here again as long as the price is right!

All in all a very good experience. Even the weather cooperated! We received great value for the very reasonable off-season rates we paid. Most of the other hotels are much more expensive in pricey Traverse City, Mi.
