    They was very friendly and clean room yes if I have to come back I pick this hotel again

    We enjoyed the breakfast, Renee did a hell of a job working alone and taking care of us all in a timely fashion. She also had a great personality, as a lot of us knew each other and she put up with what ever we wanted to eat or sit. All the people that worked there were very accomadating. The price was right and the location was only 1 exit from the race track we were going to.

    The only thing I found that could be corrected was mildew on the bathroom ceiling. Could be fixed with a spray bottle of bleach & water. Otherwise the room was clean and neat.

    These people are the model for how to update (nothing fancy but adequate) and maintain a "classic" Motel chain. HOJO has been around for a long time but this particular facility is emmaculate with a HIGH level of attention to customer service.

    Superb

    Friendly atmosphere.The room was simple but nicely decorated. Free wifi. Comfy bed. Nice clean, soft pillows. Free continental breakfast and.Great service overall.

    The only thing we didn't like about our room was the fact that our "non-smoking" room still had cigarette smell. That was a little disappointing.

    Not enough breakfast for even a small group of customers. More food. Our room card stopped working three times so we were issued new cards all three times as we were locked out of our room. Staff said if our room cards are near our phones it will demagnetize the cards. We kept our room keys in our pockets and our phones in my handbag separate and apart from the keys and two times after they stopped working. Rooms were being aired out when we arrived. Smelled like mold. Toilet seat was dirty.

    Good

    Melanie at the front desk was AMAZING. Great at check in and then called later to make sure I was ok.

    Seemed like there were a lot of people who possibly lived there. :/ I was a single traveler who would have loved to get into the hot tub in the pool area, but being alone, I would not go near that area. The people in the pool area did not appeal to me. They seemed shady. I was in room 212, the room next to me played a radio or the tv all night long. It was just loud enough to be annoying. Next time I stay in that area, I will avoid this hotel.

    Very good

    Breakfast was good and affordable and hotel in a good location. Staff was friendly.

    In my first room i killed 5 roaches. Hotel staff moved me to the room next door, so i went to Publix bought some roach spray and created a nuclear defense wall to keep them from coming to my room. After that my stay was awesome because i didnt see anymore roaches.

    The staff were friendly, breakfast wasn't bad for continental

    Torn bathroom window mesh allowed lizards and caterpillars to make a home. Rooms may have been occupied by pets, possible flea bites??
