Rooms were very stuffy and hot. Air conditioner was extremely noisy and did not work well nor did the windows open.

We chose this hotel because of the HoJo brand name, figuring it would be a quality hotel. We were disappointed as this particular hotel was rundown and likely an older hotel that has had the HoJo name attached to it. The continental breakfast was great, and even opened early per our request. The liquor store/pub attached to it is not a drawing feature and there seems to be a rent-by-week/month side to this hotel as well. We would not stay here again.

Room was perfectly fine, if not a little outdated. Clean bathroom with plenty of bath products available. Unfortunately it was absolutely stifling and opening the window and putting the creaky AC on did not help so we did not get much sleep, it was just too hot. (And not an overly hot day, just poor air circulation.) After we turned the AC off the machine made a lot of noise for a couple hours after.

Complimentary continental breakfast was very simple but appreciated. The staff were very nice. The whole place could use an update but nothing really wrong with it.

Room Tip: Hard to say if all rooms were as hot as ours, ground floor may have been cooler than the 2nd floor.
