    The desk clerk had a great personality and was very knowledeable of the city and suggested many good things to take advantage of from the hotel and the city. Good GUY! Jeff Martin

    The staff was great..! My grandson wanted to play a little longer in the pool so I checked with the front desk and they gave us an extra hour. Good value, great parking and Tio Luis' Restaurant upstairs was great as well. Would definetly stay at hojo!!

    Except for the noisy neighbors next door talking at the top of their lungs late at night and early in the am, and the faint smell of seafood in the room, oh and of course the airplanes early in the am, the stay was pretty nice,

    - Price, main reason for booking here - Really close to SeaWorld (About 10-15 min) - Spacious room (Single King room) - Free continental breakfast, including make-it-yourself Belgian waffles. The rest is the typical free cold breakfast. - Free Wi-Fi (fast enough for surfing/typical use, but not fast enough to do anything crazy, like true gaming or streaming) - Clean - Available parking near rooms - Ease of checking in/out

    - Tv was old crt (not flat screen); there was cable though - For our specific unit, 240, the door lock was messed up and should've been fixed. Literally had to swipe the key card 15 times to get in the room because the door handle wouldn't turn properly. The manager saw us trying to get into the room the first time, and he took a swing at it. It took him 10 tries. I would've thought he would've offered us a different room because it's ridiculous to expect a customer to take 5 minutes to get into their hotel room, but that didn't happen. Anyways, we never could get into the room with less than 5 tries each time.

    The bed was nice. Not soft. Nice little casual breakfast. The staff was very accommodating and friendly.

    I had noisy neighbors but pounding on the wall helped. My TV remote didn't work properly but that's minor.

  • 10.0

    Front desk friendly and helpful. The room with bunk beds worked great for our two boys. We got comp. breakfast even though our reservations from Booked.net didn't include it so that was a definite plus! Breakfast waffles a kid's favorite, they had oatmeal, variety of cereals, juices, cocoa, toasts, fruits, boiled eggs. Room clean, towels fluffy and clean. Room was spacious. Loved the microwave and mini fridge.

    Everything was great!

    The Location

    We had to be moved twice from our rooms because AC was not working. We had to sleep in our cars and with the door wide open because of the heat and with a 9 month old baby. We had to wait for more then half a day for another room. Very poor customer service will not help. We had to always wait for breakfast because there was never enough food for all the guest. Very disappointment will never recommend this Hotel.

  • 9.2

    Bed was very comfortable but pillows are like bricks. Great location, great value.

  • 5.8

    Inexpensive compared to others in the same area.

    Breakfast is minimum as of now. Room was dirty, just like cheap motels.

  • 7.4

    Room was nice,comfy beds,room had refer and microwave in cabinet. Flat screen t.v. lots of channels, in room safe(extra charge). Breakfast was good. Hotel close to everything. Wi-Fi easy to connect.

    Shower floor VERY slippery came close to falling several times, very unsafe. Shower floor needs a glued down non-slip pad.

  • 5.0

    I booked a room for a king bed got a room with two double beds, tv was out dated by like 10 years and if you turned on the light next to the tv the tv didn't work.
