This was a last minute stop. "The hotel was very clean and great hot water.
Breakfast leaves some to be desired.

Reviewed 30 May 2014

this was an old hotel recently renovated.......even though it lacked aesthetics in some ways it was surprisingly clean....staff was most accommodating and friendly; offering tourist info when asked. Room was small and somewhat cramped but cleanliness made up for it. out only negative comment is that new matrasses need to be put on the priority list for upcoming changes ..they were very uncomfortable (unsupportive, lumpy....)

Room Tip: check to see if mattresses have been updated....

Green Features: haven't stayed at a ho jo for years.....impressed with environmental concerns....non- smoking is always a plus.
