“clean but old”
Reviewed 18 October 2005

Two couples shared 2 rooms from October 8-11, 2005. The hotel hides behind a Ramada and is easy to miss on Baltimore Avenue. Easy access to 495 Beltway. When making reservations through the HoJo website, we asked for rooms near each other, but opted for separated first floor rooms instead of second floor. The overall place is old and shows many signs of wear. A total refurbish (wallpaper, paint, carpet and fixtures) is needed to match the high quality service we got. The rooms are very large, and one had a mini fridge and microwave included for the same price as the king room; furnishings aren't bad; linens were abundant; beds and bedding were fine; bath fixtures and floor were cleaned properly; plenty of soap and shampoo were provided. Breakfast was very adequate though the lobby is very small and also in need of updating. BEWARE: We found chain restaurants in the area to be of poor quality, ie: IHOP and Pizza Hut. Service was painfully slow at IHOP and part of the order was cold and part never came. Pizza Hut was plain grungy and in disrepair, plus many items were crossed off the menu!
Overall, the HOJO is not a bad stop if you are in the area to visit DC. We would consider staying there again because of the value and our experience was not a bad one overall. However, plan to drive out of the immediate area for anything other than the free breakfast.

I want to first compliment the friendly staff. However, the furnishings were in bad shape, the bed was uncomfortable and the bathroom wasn't really clean (fuzzy baseboards). My major concern was over room security - the door wouldn't quite close, and opened easily with a little tug (or push from the outside).

The room was clean and a decent size. It included a table with 2 chairs, an iron and ironing board, a blowdryer, a coffee maker with coffee, cable TV (HBO) and a separate sink outside of the bathroom. The shower worked well. We did not utilize the continental breakfast nor the pool. The room supplied plenty of clean towels and the usual soap & shampoo. The only downside is that if you're a light sleeper like me, you will hear the traffic outside the hotel due to the way the hotel is set up. Also, the street is busy, I assume due to the close proximity of the University of Maryland.
