Ok, but not a real HoJo

This place could not be in a better location (literally on the beach) but overall suffers from an impersonal feel and is very bland. I saved 20 and paid $82 for a night. It was comfy and for the location is the best price I have encountered (again, you are on the beach of Lake Tahoe). Yet, I think it should be cheaper based on the conditions (linens were worn, carpet was rough, room is small, walls are thin, cable is cheap, coffee is instant, etc.). These used to be $45 motels, and now they're somehow $90 corporate hotels? I disagree.

The mediocre

The hotel was mediocre at best. Changed rooms to a smoking room. The toilet keep clogging, and the bathroom fan made a horrible noise. The ice machine was turned off and had to wait for them to turn it on to make ice for drinks. Location is good to everything. Room was small, but clean. Breakfast was a voucher at a restaurant that was like a greasy spoon and covered very limited breakfast items with no changes or upgrades.
