I am writing this review from room 204. My previous stays at this property have been completely satisfactory with clean well appointed rooms at a very affordable rate. Happily, my stay this time is in a newly renovated room making my stay even more enjoyable. New carpet, wall hangings, light fixtures, drapes, paint and plumbing fixtures have had the effect...

Sheets had holes in them, multiple holes in wall, Doritos chips and other junk found under the bed. Shower curtain rod falling off of wall. You get what you pay for. Don't waste your money.

Obviously it would be silly to compare this to a 5 star hotel, but as far as express motel's go, it was very pleasant. Quiet, well-situated, nice and clean rooms, and a very nice front desk clerk. Good for people to be in-and-out. Car is a must.

We were very happy having stayed at Ho Jo's. We flew in from Texas for a wedding. There were five in the party and we needed two rooms for 5 days and 4 nights. The travel was tightly budgeted and the Silas Deane facility was the best quoted price. I suspect readers out there have preconceived notions about JoHo's since...

Don't expect much and you will not be let down. Bed had clean linens and so did bathroom. The room was in need of a thorough cleaning around corners and on top of wall coverings. Bathroom tub faucets were in need of cosmetic repair, but worked. Carpet was in need of updating. Price was $74. Wasn't impressed.

The pictures made the place look much more appealing than it was. The room and bathroom need to be updated. The room was also small. Also it would be nice to offer a non smoking room option for a hot tub. We may have chosen that if non smoking was available. Breakfast was not that exciting I could only find...
