“Go somewhere else!”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 9 May 2009

Outdated furnishing and bedding. Stained sink counter tops. Flat sheet on mattress that wouldn't stay on mattress. Mattress very uncomfortable. Musty, strange smell in room. Dirty shower. Molded place on bathroom wall. Very noisy (they were painting the outside of the building and we came out to a ladder right outside our door and right next to our car.) Not much offered for breakfast at all (apples and a few bagels). Pool area very dark. I will say that the girl that checked us in was very nice.

This is a nice hotel with lots of amenities. A little pricey, but good. I would stay again. Desk person was very nice to me and my family.

This place definitely deserves two stars!! Then it would be about average for what one expects in a 2-out-of-5-star property. The pool area and bathrooms were dark and dirty. The pool itself, though a nice size, was the dirtiest indoor pool I'd ever seen. The hot tub was great--just hot enough without being dangerously too hot. (Most hotel hot tubs are very warm, at best.) Wi-fi internet speeds were excellent! Breakfast was a big letdown, but they did offer fresh apples, bananas, and name brand bagels. Everythg else--and here wasn't much else--was way low on the quality scale. The room itself was closer to 1.5 stars. Old, dirty, worn out, dark, and SMALL! As requested there was one king bed, but I'd never seen a king bed placed in a room this tiny. The bed/mattress was good to very good. Carpeting and upholstered furniture was the pits. This HoJo seemingly has all the amenities (hence the 3 stars), but the quality and aesthetics SUCK.

Arrived in July 06. Air was out in the atrium area. Temp was over 90 inside. Our room smelled musty and the dresser had water damage. Carpet was moldy around edges. Had already been to 4 other hotels and all were full. Should have keept heading east.
Mgr. not at all helpful and denied any problems with room.

1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 18 July 2007

Coming in I should of known it was going to be bad. There were dead bugs right inside the door of the lobby, which is kind of hard to explain since it's inside AND outside. Really weird. The guy at the front desk was a little odd but friendly. It was 2am when we were looking for a room though so what do you expect? The lobby was dusty and dirty but it was the only motel in all of Conway with a vacancy and there's not much else around. When we got into the room it was so dark and crappy. I was very tired and sick with a cold but I eventually passed out after some cold medications. It wasn't until I woke up and saw it in the light of morning that I realized just how awful it was. Everything was dingy and old and dirty. Nothing had been updated since, I don't know, the 50s. Found random hairs on the towels and washcloths (worst thing). Tv didn't work too great either. It was very shady and I didn't feel safe/comfortable there. All around bad experience and would never give it a second chance. Much better motels in Conway. Just be sure to book ahead especially in the summer!

  • Liked — nothing
  • Disliked — lack of cleanliness, lack of lighting especially in outside areas
