“Friendly staff, clean room, all the essentials at a reasonable price.”
Reviewed 13 September 2009

We were most pleased with the friendly service and the room included fridge, microwave, safe, hairdryer, coffeemaker, board and iron, and TV. A great value that included a delicious Belgian waffle for breakfast. Nothing fancy but certainly adequate. We would definitely stay here on another trip to Tallahassee.

A long hot trip from Savannah, GA ended at the easy to find HoJo Express in Tallahassee. Desk staff, esp. Jennifer, was terrific even before arriving: telephone reservation and confirmation. Thanks to another young lady at the desk (Jennifer can't work 24/7, can she?) for printing out directions to Black Bean Cuban Cuisine (NOT to be missed). Everything we needed and no wasteful extras. Good for us and good for the earth. Thanks so much!

My family and i was passing through on our way to Orlando...after shopping a few hotels in the area this was the hotel we dicided to stay at. The staff were very friendly and knowledgable about the area. when we got to the room it was spacious and had all the amenities needed and was very clean. At checkout we stopped by the office for breakfast which had a very good variety and fresh waffles.... overall experience was great...highly recommend.

I stayed here with my husband for one night. We basically turned up, ate, went to sleep, and then left early the next morning - so didn't spend much time in the hotel, and didn't go to any attractions/activities in the Tallahassee area. So I am not really sure how close it would be to these.

But it was a nice room - very big and clean. The beds were very comfortable. We only spoke to the hotel staff at check-in, but the receptionist we spoke to was pleasant enough.

The hotel was good value for money.

On our trip to Tallahassee it was spur of the moment we did not make reservations and went to a few hotels to find the most economical and that had internet and breakfast most offered this and wher a little less but it was the service that made us go back to get a room. The agent by the name of Jen was very pleasant and let us know that she was the she would be the one that will make a great waffle for breakfast for us the next morning. She had a smile the whole time and offer us the newspaper while we were checking in. When we got to the room a few minutes had past when we received a phone call from the front desk asking us if the room was to our liking. The next morning when we went for breakfast we see her smiling face and she asked us if we were ready for the best waffle we ever had. I noticed that when anyone walked in she treated them the same way I was so facinated with her cheerfulness. She made our stay the very best hotel stay ever. We felt we were in a five star hotel could not have been treated better. If we have to travel to Tallahassee again we have are new home away from home!!!

Stayed at this hotel on our way to Disney World. Nothing extravagant here but a great place to spend the night. The beds were comfortable and it was quiet. Plenty of places to eat near by. The price was right too. The people at the front desk were incredibly nice as well.

I just returned from two nights at this hotel. It seemed clean enough but the facilities are really worn down. Good: friendly service, clean beds, plenty of hot water and good water pressure, coffeemaker, microwave and fridge in the room. Poor: toilet didn't flush well, old linens, the bathroom door was falling apart, not well sound proofed. We saw no bugs or any sign that they had a bug problem. I would stay there again because cleanliness is more important than how nice things look from the outside. If you are picky, then this isn't the place for you. If you are trying to save money then this is a good choice.
