the room was very clean, mattress very comfortable, nice complimentary breakfast. Very nice to have the fridge and micro-wave oven in the room. The room price was reasonable. Nice courteous desk clerk as well.

Excellent location. Approximately 5 miles from the Downtown where the Greyhound bus & train terminals exist. City Bus stops are within walking distance. Spacious well furnished A.C rooms. Food & bar outlets nearby. Greatest of all the front desk staff consisting of Mr. Mayur Patel and Mr. Alex are enthusiastic and extremely helpful. I enjoyed my stay of 5 days

Good location, very clean, one of the few places that still offers smoking rooms. Less than 15 minutes from downtown by car. Starbucks, good restaurants minutes away.

This HoJo is old style two floor enter from the front and is showing its age. That said, the room was okay the only problem being the shower cut off would not work requiring one to stand in cold water till it warmed up. A tad pricey considering the property but I guess that is due to being fairly close...
