I haven't stayed at a HoJo in over 10 years, so I thought it would be fun to revisit. The location is great, as it is right across the street from a mini mall - Jamba Juice, Starbucks, TJ Maxx, etc. I read the reviews about the wi-fi and was hoping to get a room where it worked well. I... More

Didn't read the fine print, expected a shuttle to and from the cruise port. The shuttle dropped us off, but did not pick us up. That was one main reason we booked there. Appreciated leaving the car in the lot. Room was clean,breakfast OK.

The shower faucet was leaking continuously; the water was lukewarm, nearly too cold for shower. The microwave still smelled the soup spilled before me. The room smelled as if someone had smoked. The internet was shaky. The walls were thin enough to hear the neighbours' fun.
