We needed a room in a pinch, and was able to score the last room available on short notice of a long weekend! Front desk manager Kayla was a pleasure to deal with, and didn't even make us feel like nimrods when we called for help with the cable! The room was clean, and the bed comfortable. The ownership obviously...

I wouldn't let my dog sleep here. We weren't looking for anything fancy as we would be out from morning till nearly midnight for the two days of our stay but... the word "seedy" is an understatement.

I have had the good fortune of travelling extensively. I am not overly fussy and try to find good value for money in terms of accommodation and save my money for other activities such as dining.

Maids grumpy. Tub size of a foot bath. Room dark and dingy. Have to cross lot to front desk to get ice. Restaurant was very good. Parking lot a challenge, Television was a mystery to operate. Not a great view! Busy intersection in front of motel.

People complaining about this hotel clearly have unrealistic ideas. You get what you pay for in most cases. This hotel was close to a wedding venue and the price was right for one night. It had a bed, a shower and AC. That was what I needed. It was also quiet, friendly staff and included wifi and free breakfast. If...

We stayed in Room 15 and it was clean and very quiet. Good Room, excellent value. Two double beds, one was tucked into its own little alcove so I could sleep while my husband watched TV. Shower very hot and staff very friendly

I grew up loving hojo. ..the only good experience thus time around was the kind Asian girl who checked me in. To start off my experience, we had plow through the door to get into room.
