Our stay at HoJo was excellent. The rooms were super clean and I felt so comfortable. I would totally stay here again and definitely recommend to friends and family.

The hotel is unwelcoming in the lobby. The rooms have old furniture, stained carpeting, a creaky desk chair, poor water pressure, and unremarkable breakfast food. There are plenty of other hotels in the general area that are better value.

Room Tip: Save your money.
