Great place to stay while in New Mexico

I had a 9 day stay with HoJo's and enjoyed it very much. I choose the Non-Smoking King room which was clean and comfy. I would stay here again and I hope I can get the same room. I will be going there again in July.

Go to the Boston Market. If you love chicken -- there is a place to go. Vermont doesn't have any Boston Markets and it was a nice experience.

acceptable

Not a bad experience I'd do it again. Get ready for a gaggle of children. Breakfast was brief and needed to ad a meat of some sort like maybe bacon.

Nice for the night

We stayed at this hotel for one night just passing through. We would stay here again; it was a good price in a good part of town. Room was clean. TV was on when we arrived. The hallway smelled of stale cigarette smoke but our room was fine. Continental breakfast was reasonably good, but the orange juice had gone bad.
