Stayed here during the SXSW festival of 2012, for 9 nights, and the hotel was totally sufficient for my needs. To my pleasant surprise my relatively large room (2 kingsize beds) seemed to have been recently renovated. New furniture, new carpet, and recently plastered and painted walls. There was, however, a subtle smell of plaster and paint still present in the room. This was disturbing at first but I got used to it pretty quickly. There was also a fridge and a microwave in the room.
The bathroom was still in need of some work, as there were stains of mold around the doorpost and skirtings. The hotel seems to be undergoing a thorough renovation at the moment. I saw a whole lot of old thrown out furniture and carpets on the parking lot outside that got picked up by dumpster trucks a couple of days after I arrived.
The staff is nice and friendly and there to assist you 24/7. The traffic noise from I35 is not a problem since the rooms have double glass windows that isolate quite well. The complimentary breakfast is nothing fancy (cereal, bagels, creamcheese and that's it), but at least it's free.
The HoJo is definitely not comparable to Hilton or Marriott but I'd recommend this place any day to people visiting SXSW, or who just want to hang out in Austin for a few days without paying a fortune.
