The entire building is dated. Long overdue for major upgrade. Filthy carpets with damp smell. Terrible breakfast. Poor fixtures in bathroom. Worst part is: incompetent, indifferent and unapologetic front desk. I experienced same indifference from management chain. Absolutely no concern for Customer's comfort. Stay away.

HoJo on Hotel Circle is a 2-star hotel. The room wasn't spotless (we wouldn't touch the sofa in the room), the breakfast area had a life-size hulk hogan statue in it, you had to tug on the shower nozzle to get it to work BUT for a low-budget 2-star hotel it was perfect! All the personnel were friendly and helpful and interactive, the room's mattress was very nice and made for great sleep. The orange juice and pastries at breakfast was good, and the shower did work and showerhead was very nice. Pool was small but it was clean and the spa worked great. A perfect stay for us for a nice beach-trip getaway.

Room Tip: Rooms on the 4th floor on the east side are quieter.
