Loved the 70's layout with protected courtyard and garden around the pool. Our room was on the ground floor right by the pool. Our kids spent hours in the big outside pool and we could just walk across the garden to our room. Clean and quiet. We never heard a sound until the neighborhood firehall ran some kind of alarm....

ok so this isn't a really nice place is it. The room is large, has an ugly carpet, a vaguely concerning smell, and you do find yourself wondering if the bed is really 100% clean (it was fine). I had to ask twice for some bathroom supplies but they were very kindly provided (toothpaste). When my card to open my... More

For two days I asked for the linens to be changed on one of the beds and it never was. The first day, no-one entered the room, and the... More

I just want to state: there are a lot of fantastic staff running this hotel, many of them much older and who care for it. But the same cannot be said for the few, who stick out and were an eyesore to the hotels guests. First off, as I approached the hotel to check in, it was obvious that the... More

This hotel was absolutely disgusting. When we walked into our room the smell was terrible. Pulled blankets back to look at the sheets only to find hair and stains all over the beds. An occasional ant in the room too!!!! Do not ever go there!!!!

This HOJO's is a well worn establishment but, the owners were in the process of rehabing the place. Staff is very friendly. Price was reasonable for the quality. Close to the highway. Place is good enough for an overnight stay if you are traveling on the highway. They do have a pool and it was clean.
