This hotel should only be used for short stays in an emergency. Unrenovated rooms have the feel of a prison cell with old furniture and dated TVs. The renovated rooms were only modestly better. There is no lobby of any value for relaxing or to get out of the room.

Stayed: January 2014

In town last night for a Kim Mitchell show and booked the HoJo for the night. The hotel is older but seems to be recently remodeled and was clean, bed comfortable, check in went smoothly and was pleasantly surprised. Again, nothing fancy with a nothing fancy price. If looking for a good clean cheap bed for the night, this works. Yes, they still have room keys but was almost nostalgic having them. The rooms are small but it had a fridge, microwave and flat screen.

This was about the worst hotel we have ever stayed at. The rooms are dated and smell. The cleaning staff could not clean our room as they did not have a key to get into our room- yes they still are using keys!
