"Better than nothing"
The staff was wonderful -the room was warn, seemed clean though. Bed and pillows were not comfortable and the sheets were clean, but well worn. The TV and alarm clock did not work correctly. Only stairs to the second floor. It was not quiet - inside or out. There were no other rooms available in that area so I was grateful for a place, but.....

Perfectly ok, one night stay. Comfortable bed, decent television. One outlet was broken, and air conditioning turned off around midnight and would not turn back on. Still a cheap stay for a clean room.

"Clean affordable place for a family of 5."
We arrived a little bit after 11pm to attend a memorial for a family member. HJ's had no problem with the late check in and was able to accommodate a family of 5 in a single room. The room was clean, the bathroom was very clean. We would stay again.

Management/Owner does great job - the first 3 nights were great --- on the 4th night (when I arrived back to hotel room late, 11:00 PM), the toilet had plumbing leak problem flooding the floor + someone took AC knob off of wall air conditioner unit so cool air knob could be used so resulted in uncomfortable night.

"Keep your money & run"
Dealt w/complete incompetence, 2 w/o email confirmation paid twice for the room; 3 put in a "discounted" (a room in bad-almost non-rentable condition)room a paid for a room in better condition. On top of being late night,being sick it just made the whole experience worse to be in a room that I was afraid to touch anything or let anything touch me. Then in the morning the maids banged on the door saying check out was 11:30&we should be leaving, called&hung up 2x's. I reluctantly picked up the sticky filthy phone called to confirm check out&it was at 12.

"Won't stay there again"
There is no elevator. We had to drag our luggage up the stairs at 12:30am. The hallways smell like cigarettes. We reserved a king bed and they gave us a queen. One of the electrical sockets was being held in by wallpaper. There was an iron imprint on the carpet.

"Won't stay here again."
No elevator. Had to drag our luggage up the stairs at 12:30am. We reserved a king bed and they put us in a room with a queen bed. One of the electrical outlets was being held in by wallpaper. There was an iron imprint on the carpet. The keys to our room kept getting deactivated because of our cell phones. The hallways smell like cigarettes. One guy that works there was helpful and got us moved to a different room.

"If you need a bed for the night, this works."
Well enough for a one night stay: clean, comfy king size bed and soft pillows, friendly front desk attendants, meager continental breakfast. Heater in room was either too hot or too cold needing frequent adjusting. Bathroom was clean, although the shower was a little sad. The end of the hallway had plastic lining the floor - not sure if it was a leak or a remodel. Had a fridge and microwave in room which was nice. For the price not bad.

"If u smoke and can sleep thru everything"
Wow everything was terrible. We got a no smoking room but the hallway smelled of smoke as well as the stairwell . Later on I saw three men smoking outside the stairwell . The room smelled like a cheap car scent. The bed sheets were swimming in bleach smell. There were people revving their car and leaving at all times of night. There was a girl crying all night next to our room. The best part of the hotel was leaving it.

"Non-smoking? Please..."
I booked a non-smoking, King room for 3 nights to go up and visit family. Unfortunately, the stay was just terrible. I was prepared for this, but still.. the breakfast was a joke and the room was dingy, but that is typical of the type of hotel, so whatever. What really got me upset was the non-smoking room I stayed in was wedged between SMOKING rooms, so that was extremely upsetting. Yes, this was the least expensive of the hotels/rooms available, but was it worth it? No. Pay the extra money and stay somewhere SLIGHTLY nicer, but still get a good deal.

"Nice and basic place, good value."
Very nice and large space. Friendly housekeeping staff. Very good value. Some concerns about the internet - new internet speed was very slow (compared with previous visits), as they set up new routers. Also got knocked off a few times. Bed comfortable, refrigerator and microwave provided (in the suites). Hallways and stairways clean but beginning to show their age.

"Ok for a night"
I've stayed at this hotel many times so I guess something must be right about it. Overall an older hotel. Nothing special but the price was right. Has a micro-fridge in room. The bed was solid but some fraying in the carpet. The breakfast is almost non-existent compared to other hotels. Previous reviews cited few choices for restaurants. There's Rizzutos which you can walk to which is on the other side of the street down about 200 feet next to the Wine Store. Nice restaurant.

"Expensive for what you get. Takes pets."
This one is 5 miles off the interstate, down a small road with really no signs anywhere to let you know you're headed correctly. Fine if you have a navigation system or are good with maps. PRO: It takes pets -- which is why we went there. it's clean, well maintained inside and out, and quiet. The beds were of decent firmness. This nonsmoking room didn't smell of smoke. The carpet was inoffensive. All surfaces in the bathroom sparkled. There was a fridge in the room. They serve something to eat in the morning. The window in the room was openable. CON: This room was 20% more than the econolodge we stayed at the night before. The pet cost was double. Breakfast was coffee, tea, choice of two dried cereals, two juices, and several breads -- roughly half what we got at the Econolodge. It was impossible to make a reservation by phone because the man answering did not speak English well enough to be understood. The screen fell out of the window when I opened it. The groundfloor window had no apparent lock. This is a facility reaching the end of its useful life . The furnishings and building are dated and vaguely shabby. The operation, amateur. At this level of service and facilities, the HoJo should be charging $15% to 20% less than an Econolodge, not 20% more. There are four or five chain hotels within two block of the place, all with more upscale and newer facilities. One of them is likely a better value
