I stayed a couple nights, there were no obvious deficiencies in cleanliness, all the staff I observed complied with face coverings and positioned themselves behind the plexiglass when interacting with customers. The single king room was perfectly adequate for my needs, actually more spacious than I expected, and I was happy to find a desk and a lounge chair in the room. The sound proofing between rooms seems quite good as when I was out on the walkway I could indistinctly hear there were other people in the rooms to either side of me but wouldn't have known otherwise as I heard nothing while in my room. While checking in the young lady made it C R Y S T A L C L E A R that no smoking of tobacco or otherwise was permitted on the grounds or in the rooms & I was very appreciative to know that I wouldn't have to deal with the stench or pollution from smokers during my stay. I checked out very early in the morning at 3am and the gentleman who staffed the front desk over night appeared genuinely concerned with my comfort and inquired if there was some deficiency that was causing me to check out so early. Overall, very pleased with my stay, experience, and the value offered. I will not hesitate to book a room here again on future trips.

The hotel is clean, in a good location and was a good value. The furniture was a bit dated but ok my only complaint was the pillows need to be replaced. They were flat, feather pillows that don't support your head.

In town for business & too late to drive home so I thought I'd give HoJo's a try. The front desk manager (Josh) was a gem & placed me in a quiet, clean room. Upon entering I felt the temperature was down & the room was cool, so I placed a call & Josh promptly appeared to reset the heater & brought me a blanket. Very efficient & helpful to solve the issue. Thats the kind of service that brings people back. My stay was pleasant, had a lot of fresh hot coffee, a grab & go bag for the road to munch on for breakfast & the room served my needs. Bed was firm, lots of pillows & warmed up nicely. Will return if in the area again.

Me and my husband loved the cleanliness of the room and also the environment. The staff were very helpful and pleasant. The heat wasn’t working in our first room, however the staff was kind enough to move us. We absolutely love how quiet this hotel was. We will definitely be back!!

Stayed here in October 2020. 2 nights Room was clean, no problem with check in. If in area again I would consider this motel again. Don’t know about their breakfast since we ate at the cottage restaurant just down the street.
