The room was recently newly renovated and the property was very clean. The employees were friendly and helpful. The free breakfast was good. We stayed their for 3 nights to drop off our daughter at the local university which is very close to this HoJo.

There was nothing fancy, but it met all of the needs of a traveler staying for a night before a flight. Easy to access, easy access to the airport, and a reasonable, comfortable... More

Management went above and beyond, she handled an unruly guest very professionally..I wish I could remember her name, to credit her. * bonus, fresh clean towels are provided at the pool.
