Aside from someone playing unholy awful on the bar jukebox upon arriving, Ho Jos was just what we were looking for. Just off hwy 4 ramp with an incredibly well stocked Sunoco station on the way, we arrived late, tired but with beer, morning ice coffee and full tank. Funky modern room, only 1 dead bug in the bathroom, 2nd...

There was an old smell that greets us as we opened the door. The receptionist was not prepared to receive clients. The lobby was not inviting.

Was very disappointed, falling apart, bathroom a disgrace. Cut our trip short. Also, was to get military rate which I did 1st night, 2nd night paid over $100.00, what a rip-off. Will never stay there again or ever give a good review. Even found 1 dirty sock on floor, so if anyone stayed there and missing a sock, contact them...

This property is under what seems to be a pretty extensive renovation. The room was spacious however, our tub/shower was dirty. Breakfast was VERY continental...not much selection at all. The price is very low, so I can not have huge complaints. We just had to grab some fast food breakfast on the way to our destination.

I came to the hotel on or about the 24th and when I came into the room it was nice and clean, then right before going to bed I went to brush my teeth only to go over to the sink to find something in it to look like poop. I call down to the office they sent up maintenance...
