“Should have skipped the HoJo”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 7, 2014

The clerk checking us in acted like we weren't welcome. The lock on the room door was broken and they were using steel bar across instead to block entry. It was scary. The room had an ironing board but no iron. When I called asking for an iron the front desk clerk had no idea how to locate one. The plumbing made loud noises all night making it impossible to sleep. The shower water temperature couldn't be regulated and would shift from warm to burning hot without warning. Both of us were burned trying to shower. And there was no advertised continental breakfast in the morning. Not even coffee. The hotel served its purpose. Was was not in any way a pleasant experience.

First impression was walking into the lobby with unusual people paying in cash. Looks like most of the rooms have people living in them. The hall ways smelled like weed. Police were coming in and out of the hotel premises. Don't recommend at all. The hotel does not have standards.
