“Unfriendly Receptionist”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 20, 2014

Just an okay hotel. Very unfriendly receptionist who was not happy to be there and definitely not happy to serve us or hospitable. Would not stay again on that unpleasant experience alone. For the price I guess it was okay but a little old and rooms smelled old with broken mirror. On a positive note older hotels have thicker walls so noise level was quite low which was a surprise since it is so close the US 19.

Thank you for your review. I'm so sorry that you had any unpleasant contact with any staff members. It is more than a bit unusual. I apologize for this.

We enjoyed the room and its convenience. The only thing I would suggest would be to add to the breakfast choices: more cereals and maybe a waffle iron.

............This is a very basic and inexpensive place to stay while on the road. My room and the property were clean and orderly. Because of proximity to Highway 19, I would recommend requesting a room towards the back of the property to avoid hearing the highway hum......

Room Tip: .....a room at the back of this property will be more quiet than those by the highway...

Thank you for your review. We are located on Hwy 19 and close to many different points of interest. The rooms are very good at keeping outside noise to a minimum, however, if one is a light sleeper or used to the quiet of the country, asking for a room further away from the Hwy and on the second floor will help. I am happy to hear your stay was adequate for your needs.

We my wife and myself had to leave our home for the day as some work was being done.So we booked a room at the HJs. which was close by.The staff was friendly and the room was large and clean,but the bathroom needed a make over.There was a pool and hot tub which i used and the continental breakfast was ok.The only downside was i dont think the hotel was remodeled for years,but i would go there again.
