3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 30, 2012

We wanted a cheap, comfortable place to stay for a couple of nights, and we got what we were after.

Nothing too flashy, but not a complete dump either. Staff were friendly and helpful with directions around the town. The pool could have down with a clean - it was full of dead bugs, leaves and sticks.

Stayed September 2012, traveled as a couple

Price-quality is fair, clean, old, good bed. wifi needed to be resetted twice. breackfast terrible. Safe was not usable as it was closed and the password was of course not known. Very friendly people. (Outside season, price very low)

Dear Paul V,

I am happy to hear that you enjoyed your stay and thank you for taking the time for writing a review.
I am sorry to hear about the problems with the wifi and safe.
We do our best to make it convenient for our guests by offering complimentary wifi, with several connections available throughout the property. However, being in the mountains, we do have occasional issues with connectivity.
The safe is a Wyndham standard, and I apologize for it not being in working order. Please make sure to call us when you have any issues and we can fix that for you.

We hope to see you again soon. Please email us at hojoattahoe@gmail.com for any special arrangements during your next stay.

Best,

Chuan Mai
GM
