We have stayed here in previous years and it had been on the slippery slope to a serious decline.
We were not going to return to Ho Jo this year due to the run-down .... well, everything. We honestly thought the place had a new owner but apparently it's the old owner with a fresh attitude!

The new engineer (who we met) has the place returning to normal, there is fresh paint and things are repaired in good time and it's all attributable to him. The people at the check in are polite and obviously trying very hard ... you will love that girl with the Jamaican accent.

Dear Spartanacus,
Thank you for being so honest in your review. This validates our efforts to make our hotel more guest-worthy in comfort, cleanliness and service. We are so happy that the changes are so noticeable that you made a comparison of your previous visits to your most recent one. We never stop trying to meet the demands of our guests by addressing their concerns and considering their ideas. There is no 50%, it is 150% or nothing at all and based on this review, we are sure you know which percentage we are giving. Thank you and have a wonderful day.

Good stopover place to stay when visiting St. Augustine. Easy to find and good location to the Old Town with Trolley stop directly at the hotel.
