I had a very pleasant stay. The staff was very accommodating and very professional. The renovations are remarkable and I would stay at this hotel again. I would not hesitate to recommend this hotel to other travelers as well.

The weather vane and old HOJO posters were a great touch. My family played on the mini golf course and took pics in the giant HOJO...

First of all, kudos Ho-Jo, great job on the renovations! Love the vibrant colors and interior design. Second of all, I had one small issue. I was not provided a detailed receipt; I had to request one when I received a simple receipt for the total paid. Looking closer at the detailed charges, I realized they charged a nightly safe...

When we checked in, we were so happy with the friendly service we received. The room has been redone in the original 50's style and colors. Who ever remodeled did a great job.
