not

First thing we found at checkin was that there was an additional fee for parking. We specifically chose this location because of the offer for up to a week of parking at no additional cost. Second, the room had an odd odor. Won't be staying there again.

Disaster

Hotel was overbooked and the alternative arrangements made by the owner with another hotel owned by same company was the absolute worst hotel I ever stayed in.

Lacking

The advertised shuttle was non-existent. The internet didn't work. The breakfast offering was below average. If I wasn't in such a hurry I would have asked for a refund. I was really quite disappointed.

Quiet and out of the way.

Just hard to find the people in charge. The rooms are old but clean. Excellent for the price I paid.

Better options out there

All in all nothing too horrible but for the price but it isn't clean or sanitary. The breakfast is pretty bad. It could have been much cleaner. Management is misinformed about distance to any local attractions. You would be better off going to any extended stay America or red roof inn. The Howard Johnson name is being lowered.

For the price, it was NOT good.

As soon as we walked in there was a roach on the floor! The room smelled. There was space under the door where is probably where the roach entered. I was afraid to take my take-out food back to the hotel because I was afraid some critter was going to eat it. I would not go back. I thought the area was a travel business district, it was not what I expected. For the same price, we could've stayed in a much better hotel.

Fits the bill

I was thrilled to find HoJo's at a reasonable price and was even more happy to find that it was reasonably comfortable. I needed a hotel for a quick overnight stay -- no frills necessary. The staff were polite, the room was clean, and the bed was comfortable. If you are on a budget then it is ideal. The carpet made it slightly more cozy than your average budget hotel.
