A little bit away from the centre of this small city makes this a quiet hotel. Nothing fancy. Clean. Breakfast available. Helpful staff. Everything We needed and nothing We didn't

The tub grout was mildewy, the hallway outside my nonsmoking room reeked of cigarette smoke, at 8:45am there was barely any breakfast left and what was left was cold.

Got a really good price for the room. Now I know why . I had about seven hours, so I just wanted to sleep. The smoke detector battery needed to be replaced as it kept on beeping. Had to fix that. Got into bed and the sheets were all pilled and I mean bad. Sleeping in my truck would have been better. A bit more money might be worth it. Learn from my mistake.

Pleasant and reliable. Good size rooms, fridge-microwave and coffee as usual. Reasonable breakfast for a place without a restaurant. People are friendly and efficient and put up with my requests :) .

This was absolutely the worst service I have ever experienced at any hotel! And that’s hard to say!!

The room was very clean and bed very comfortable. I originally booked for 2 nights. the boss called me at 11:30am on my second day , changes my work plans. I went to the front desk, explained my situation and without hesitation, Randy gave me a full refund. He was very kind, exceptional customer service, I will definitely stay here again if I'm ever in Ft St john again.

This is a regular stop on our way home as it is older but clean and well maintained. Not a big breakfast but definitely a variety for everyone. The only reason I gave it a 4 start review was because when I went to check out in the morning, I had to call 4 times before anyone came to the desk which was time I could have spent on other things.

HoJo isn't the newest hotel in town but the price is acceptable and you get good value for your money. If you keep your expectations reasonable then you will be happy.

It was a terrible experience!! Firstly the room was dirty(dust, dirt and dust all along the walls on the carpet,) not enough face and hand towels for number of guests, sparing toilet paper, very little coffee, sugar, stir sticks, just to name a few shortages!!! Following our complimentary breakfast at 9:20 AM we returned to our room to pack up as we were going to check out; only to find a gentleman changing the bedding and rearranging the room and we had not checked out or removed our personal belongings from the room yet !!! We had to insist that he leave as he just carried on with his duties! It should also be noted that this was a non smoking room and the odor of cigarette smoke was noticeable and when exiting the room the odor was extremely strong in the hallway. I had a discussion with the Manager about the situation and advised him that he should train his staff prior to having them do this type of work!!! AND FURTHER MORE WE WILL CERTAINLY NOT RECOMEND THIS ESTABLISHMENT NOR WILL WE BE STAYING THERE EVER AGAIN!!

Didn't expect much from a cheaper hotel in a fairly remote town, but this place earned my respect. Staff were friendly and helpful, went above and beyond even though our dog was kind of a hassle. The room was fine, the breakfast better than most, in that it actually had a few hot items and not just the standard fare of cereal and muffins. The best part of this hotel is the sauna though, which made for a great end to a long and wearying day.
