The exterior of the hotel was run down. the lobby as well. Rooms were clean, staff was fairly helpful. More perks would be good.

The TV channels offered needs more options. the selection was very slim compared to other hotels that I have stayed at. Over all the hotel was and is a nice place to stay close to everything that is needed to do.

I cannot believe this happened in a nice hotel like HJ. The mattress was wet underneath a clean pad and clean sheets. Didn't notice until I laid in it for a time to soak through. Nonetheless, the cleaning staff should have noticed as they changed sheets. Incredible. I'm sure it doesn't happen often (that someone urinates) but it should have been caught!

The "HoJo" in Yakima is an OK place to stay.
It's very close to the convention center so that's a plus. But their restaurant/lounge didn't open until 5pm each day.
They did let us arrange a late check out.
Rooms were clean and beds were very comfortable.
Wall are thin though. We heard the couple fighting in the room next to us more than once.
