This hotel is pretty worn out. The old and dirty carpets leave a very poor first impression. Fortunately, to the credit of the staff, the linens and bathrooms are very clean.
The wifi (hotel wide) as well as the free parking are a bonus. The breakfast, although not exciting, is convenient.
I stayed in the lower (motel-like) part of the hotel. This was very convenient, as I had my own car. However, I would not recommend this hotel if you are not driving.
The walls are not terribly sound-proof. You will most likely hear a lot of what's going on next door.

Hojo all over US is standard in terms of room breakfast etc
Value for your money

But this one is like 15 min from Journal square and what you save in hotel room you end up spending in taxi to and fro fare

Dear Pratik D,

My name is Chaitali Gandhi, the general manager of this property and would like to address to your concern about the location of our property. The location is as such that we are not able to change or completely remove since the crowd that comes in at the property is uncontrollable and the prices are already set at a high because of how close we are to New York City. Regardless ,I apologize for any other inconvinience you had with the hotel and your stay since we are trying to improve in every area possible as a team. Thank you for your concerns. Go Happy, Go Hojo !

Parking is terrible... 2 separate buildings of rooms like motel but they call it hotel. Room was frigid cold on a 100 degrees day and room smelled of stale smoke. Non-smoking room at End of quarter next to the maids closet. Mind you the maids come at 7 AM and started banging around in that closet and proceed to try and enter your room to clean while you sleep of try to. A room cost of 170 plus tax was a rip off and I will never return. Hojo Newark Airport is so much better and nearly half as expensive. Staff doesn't care and it shows throughout bc it's gross. Found white stains on room items like chairs and linens etc. that told me they have a poor cleaning standard.

I agree that the pictures make the hotel seem nicer than it is. Very dirty and small. Service was ok but I would never stay here again. Needs a major cleaning not to mention updating!! We stayed here thinking we were saving a bit of money and could easily get into the city. The uphill climb through a sketchy part of town to the bus station was awful! Finding the right bus to get back to the hotel was a pain. You spend quite a bit ofoney and tons of time is wasted getting in and out of the city. Next time I'm paying the extra money to stay in the city. It'll end up costing me the same amount and I'll get to save loads of time and aggravation!
