Hotel was dirty and smelled musty. It was raining the night we were there and there were many leaks in the ceiling throughout the building. Our room was very dirty and the carpet was sticky. The continental breakfast was not very good. Rotten bananas with fruit flies flying around them, hard boiled eggs that were all gray. Nothing appetizing about... More

We were told at the desk that the hotel was smoke free but when we walked into our room it really smelled of smoke. Gave us a headache. Hall way was dirty and old looking.

I am hoping that this hotel is under new management, who is trying to improve the hotel. The exterior looks like it has not been updated since the seventies. My husband and I go into the lobby to check in and we see a young woman and several Hispanic men. There are several vehicles in the parking lot with Texas... More

When I arrived, the front desk greeted me with a smile. The staff was friendly, courteous, and they provided all the necessities right away. The staff explained the geography of the hotel so to find my room was easy. I enjoyed HOJO's facilities--the gym has just the right number of equipment for a good workout. The pool has clean clear...

The mattresses are 100 years old. They have a dip in them in the middle, very uncomfortable. The rooms smelled moldy! The pool area was beautiful, wish the rooms had been that nice. Not impressed, actually embarrassed that I had the entire wedding party and guests book there.
