This HoJo has been around. It is a very large 2-story motel with several sections very near the airport. The staff are good folks, including a good cleaning staff and decent internet. Let's face it, this place is past its prime, small rooms and our room was not just stuffy, it was simply stale and rank. To make this place work it would need to be totally overhauled by merging two rooms into one and making it all-mini-suites. With Hooters next door selling good rooms at the same price and less, this place is on the ropes. What saves it? During conventions, especially at the MGM across the road, folks with a tight budget will take a HoJo across the road if the Hooters or Excalibur are already full. Why did we stay? Having never looked at the rooms we mistakenly trusted in the HoJo name and booked in advance. The reason was to be near the airport, leave the car there where it was safer than the $16 per day airport rental for two weeks and take a cab into the airport. Yes, it was safe and we are grateful to the good staff for their consideration. Why fly out of Vegas? COPA Airlines flies to Panama City and Costa Rica for a third the price of airlines out of Salt Lake, Denver, etc.and COPA is a much better airline with more leg room and better treatment than such as the 'D' airline. Thanks, HoJo, but next time perhaps America's Best or Motel 6. I have more to say but will sit on it.
