“Top Notch Hotel”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 23, 2013

HJ in Lima, Ohio met all my needs. The beds were new and comfortable. Nice large TV with mini-fridge and microwave. I had a nice swim in the pool. Lots of parking. Courteous, efficient staff.
Friendly, family oriented hotel. Great breakfast room. Close to highway. I will definately be staying there again.

Room Tip: You can choose a room overlooking the pool or overlooking the parking lot, but not both.

I do a lot of traveling around Ohio, and pay all my own expenses. This is one of the better values I have found! The staff at the front desk is excellent, always smiling. I would definitely recommend!

Thanks for the review Rod. You just said one of our favorite words, VALUE! The whole concept at our hotel is to provide our guests with the best value for their stay. We have the lower rates than any other 3 Star hotel in town and offer more amenities. With our large indoor heated pool, exercise room, 42 inch HDTV’s Serta Perfect Sleeper mattresses and our free hot breakfast you will not find a better value in town. Thanks for staying with us, I hope to have you stay with us again.

We checked other hotels in Lima, Ohio and HoJo was by far the best. A little more money but a nice experience. This will now be our permanent hotel for the second night coming from Naples, Florida to Ancaster, Ontario, Canada on our annual trip.
