4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 29, 2013

You know when you're staying at a HoJo for under $60 a night that you aren't looking for luxury. Indeed, the pool was in the middle of the parking lot and the tube tv got 8 or 9 channels (fortunately one was ESPN) but we were pleasantly surprised with the overall stay. The room was very big with a kitchenette, bed was comfortable, everything was clean, and the front desk people were nice. It's near a variety of stores and restaurants and the surrounding area is busy but seems safe enough. It was convenient for us as well.....20 minutes from Ybor City and 30 from Clearwater. Definitely the best hotel we've stayed at for the price range.
