Two day work trip

This hotel was convienantly located and easy to get to. It was priced appropriately for the occasion. My stay was in June and the college was probably less busy than usual. Hotel was clean and well run. I would definitely stay there again.

Scary!

This hotel is just scary. the location is less than desirable and our room was at the very back of the lot with a one way parking lot so narrow that I had trouble backing my Jeep Commander out without hitting the fence. We stayed two nights-our room was not cleaned and we had to get our own towels on the 2nd day. It is a sketch place and I do not recommend staying here-ever. It was the only room available in College Station for the weekend that we were there. If I had know how scary this property was-I would have stayed in Bryan or some other nearby town.

Very outdated

This hotel is so old. Room was small. There were dead crickets in the bathroom light fixture. It seemed like only the bare minimum was done to clean the room. It was supposed to be a non smoking room but it smelled like stale smoke in there. Would NOT stay there again. Way too much in price for what we got. Breakfast was frozen junk. Powdered coffee cream and cheap tasting coffee. Just an old run down hotel.

Stay away, this is a dangerous, dirty discusing place

Cockroachs in the room, ice machine broken, paint peeling off the walls, dirty sheet, AC non functional, bug in the towels, reservation wrong, staff no help, crack in the door, smoke detector non functional, stay away, this hotel should be torn down! You will be sorry if you stay here. Disputed the charges with the manager. This is the worst hotel I have ever seen. On a sold out game day the manager wanted me to check out and find a different room. They do not care about quality, cleanliness or service.

HoJo Review

I figured that this hotel would be a little on the dingy side because of the price, but I wasn't expecting it to be unclean (afterall, it is a chain hotel). So here were some of the problems that I found: 1. I always check for bed bugs (thank God there were none) and found some blood spots and baby roach carcasses on the spring mattress. 2. The carpets were disgusting. They turned my feet black when i walked around. 3. I found a long, black hair within the sheets. (I have red hair, and my husband has brown...) 4. The towels had stains on them. 5. And lastly, breakfast was okay, but they almost ran out of everything around 7:20am on one of the days. I definitely will not be staying at this particular hotel ever again. BUT I will say that the staff was super nice and the location wasn't too bad.

Weekend Sporting Event

This hotel is obviously very old and shows it's age in spite of being reasoably well kept and reasonably clean. The king-size bed was clean and very comfortable. Continental breakfast left a lot to be desired. The bathroom was extremely small. This was one of few hotel rooms left in the area at booking.
