“Summer Vacation”
Reviewed 21 August 2013

Let me just say what a great hotel this is. From the location and value, right down to the friendliness of the staff. My wife and 2 children travelled to Saint John for the beginning of our vacation and the hotel made us feel at home. We stayed 3 nights. The pool was great for the kids and the on site restaurant was great for us as a family. The staff were great and helped us with directions on the best way to get to the attractions we wanted to see. Our room was nice and clean and the beds VERY comfortable.
We had a great stay and it was a great way to start our family vacation

Thank you, thank you thank you. I had the nicest stay here and I felt so welcomed. I arrived on a Sunday evening, and the front desk clerk was very efficient and so nice. We had a nice talk about the city and the hotel I went up to my room which was spacious and clean. It had just been painted, so the room was fresh. The bed was so comfortable and I enjoyed my sleep.
The hotel offered a cooked made to order breakfast(you pick off a menu) which was great, and I also ate supper there. The restaurant was excellent.
All in all this is a great hotel and is a great price. I will definitely stay here again!!

This hotel is definitely in need of renovations. The elevators are small and slow and the rooms although spacious are outdated. The bathroom was dirty. The bathtub itself was peeling and there was hair in it. There were burn marks in the carpet and the AC seemed to be stuck on cold. The free wifi seemed to be non existent on our floor. Breakfast was good and the staff were friendly.

Questions to ask when you book in to this HOJO. What floor has internet access? What floor has an ice machine?
The internet access on the 5th and 3rd floor is extremely poor. The excuse from the hotel - lots of people downloading or using Skype. It toots itself as a conference centre, but NOT if you are needing internet access. Because they don't have a fridge in each room finding an ice machine is hit and miss, they are ONLY on EVEN floors!
Breakfast was very good and the other facilities too. Rooms clean and comfortable but DOUBLE beds? Not a good choice for most travellers.

Room Tip: Be careful NOT to be near the elevators, it can be a little noisy.

It is pretty good given the price. But expect some inconvenience. We checked in for 3 nights in the middle of July. And there are couple things not working: hair dryer, lamp above the bed, and a very sensitive alarm setting off with little steam.

They fixed all of them pretty fast.

Also the hotel has two wings. If you are on the other section without an elevator, you need to move your luggage up for several steps. That side is definitely not for people who are physically challenged.

We got lucky and were given this as our hotwire destination. From the moment we stepped in we were offered great hospitality, since this is a Hilton chain I wouldn't expect anything less. What I would expect is a better quality of the bathroom. Our bathroom looked ancient and the bathtub was actually peeling. I took a picture just to post it on here as proof and hope the maintenance or Hilton see this and realize this is completely unacceptable for HoJo's. Besides the terrible bathtub the room was so nice, I slept like a baby in my bed and our hot breakfast was good. I'm only giving this two stars due to the bathtub condition, otherwise hospitality and quality of sleep was above average.
