After a long trip in from Baltimore, I was greeted by Destiny at the front desk with a big smile and welcoming check in. She was incredibly helpful and efficient, even upgraded my room at no extra cost. She also introduced me to the complimentary van driver, and gave me pointers on local sites. Nice hotel, nice view of the...

Thank you for your review. We do apologize for any inconveniences you may have had while you were with us. We have since worked on our elevator which is now functioning normally. I have also discussed with the staff about the early check in for future guests. We do hope that you will reconsider using Hojo in the future.

What I really loved about this place was how close it was to the downtown square. It's like a 10-15 minute walk through the park (literally, there is a nice park you can walk through. Also plenty of Pokestops there and downtown). Free breakfast is also always awesome. A variety of donuts, biscuits and gravy, and more! The dining area...

We had a two king room which was nice and the beds were comfortable. Shower was decent water pressure. Missed the reception, but I'm sure it was a nice touch. Pool was good, kids swam. Breakfast was good with a lot of choices but very busy. All in all everything was just fine!

We typically stay in Marriott and Hilton, but decided to save the cost on a hotel by staying with HJ this time. Also, we had our dog with us and they only have a $10 pet fee, which is hard to beat. We arrived early at 2:10 for a 3:00 check in thinking that would be ok. Nope! We sat...
