The Hotel was needing a lot of up grades Its old interior but did what I needed it to do. The staff was very nice and helpful with all my needs. I would tell others that needed to stay in the area about the hotel it was what it was for the money. Thank you

The HOJO was great! Prime location and easy to get to any attraction or destination within 15 minutes. Front Desk was very polite and accommodating to any needs. Only recommendation would be to maybe upgrade the rooms and give them a new look or a "face life" if you will. Also, the homeless people around there were very annoying but... More

We booked the room expecting a Hojo stay and we got what we expected. The room was clean. The motel is dated. It could use some upgrades, but it met our needs. The breakfast was good. We stayed 2 nights and no major issues. It seemed to be in a rough area, but there were no issues.

This hotel was so frumpy and in the barrio. I didn't feel safe at all with my grandchild with me. I had read the feedback and that is how I make my decision along with pricing and just thought this hotel room should have been a $80 a night room, not $120 I paid. Very disappointed, will not stay at... More
