I can't comment on what this hotel would be like "in season". Waaaay off season (2nd week in November) I was pleasantly surprised by the overall quality of our room. Price we paid through priceline was excellent...and totally irrelevant for what they charge in warmer weather. $63/night including all taxes, etc. is good for almost anything...and this HoJo's is good quality all the way. Nothing palatial, but a full size 2 queen bed room with a perfectly adequate (if a bit dated) bathroom. Everything clean and functional. I can't imagine the fireplace in the main lobby is a big draw in the summer, but it set a fine ambiance for a rainy November weekend. Staff was helpful and focused on their jobs.
12th street is pretty far downtown in OC. That worked very well for us (the charter fleet is based near the inlet near the southern causeway (Division Street, aka "0th street).More
