This is not the same hotel that was the Hojo Santee last year. I had hope things at the New Santee Hojo would be good,NOT. The outside looks good and the staff is friendly. Was sent to room 105 at first all looked well until I turned on the light. The chair was dirty, and the bed had seen better days, OK I could live with this at the price I paid. Then I went the the bathroom The toilet seat looked like it was from a gas station, towels super thin, checked the bed I would have thrown out sheets this bad, the pillows almost as thin as pancakes. But the worst was yet to come. After dinner went to have a bath, the safety bar was coming out of the wall and NO HOT Water. I had had it , the clerk showed me another room and it was worse then 105. He said he could do nothing about the water but shortly after surprise hot water. Breakfast was OK. If I had not prepaid at a Non refundable rate I would have walked "RUN" away from this HOBO. Date of stay Oct 1,2013

Stayed in June on our way to Florida. Desk clerk pleasant and helpful. Found a "waterbug" in our first room, got a new one in minutes. Second room was very clean. Nice breakfast area. Breakfast was make your own waffles, juices, coffee, cereal, etc. Overall what I expected for the price.
