The lobby looks fine so thought it would be decent motel - boy was I wrong! They advertised for outdoor pool which was a joke- it was filthy and green and definitely not fit for swimming! The curtains in the room had stains, cracks in the wall, air conditioner knobs were broke, etc.... The sheets looked clean and since we were there only over night we decided to stay. Ice machine didn’t work in our building so had to walk to other building for ice. As we were returning two police cars pulled in, police went banging on one of the rooms yelling “Springfield police, open up or we’re coming in!” Waited a few minutes to go to our room as we had to walk passed that room and I wasn’t sure what was going on. I guess they resolved whatever the problem was. The word I would use for this hotel is sketchy. Didn’t even try to have breakfast. They did have a sign in lobby saying they were renovating. Was not a good experience and will not stay here again.

OK, but a better choice can be made

Pros: Free breakfast, Free Internet
Cons: Nothing close, Noisy, poor safety, lack of outlets
The staff was nice and helpful. When I arrived at the Hojo, I was told that my room was booked as a smoking room. It could have been my mistake, but it was corrected with no problem. No issue there. I did think the bed was comfortable enough, and the climate control was OK. However, there were several negative issues. The room was starving for power outlets. There was one available at the desk, and one at the back of the room. None were available at the nightstand. The wi-fi signal was weak, and not signified with the name of the hotel. The room appeared to be repaired with shoddy workmanship, although the only unsafe condition I noticed was a loose tile. The back of the hotel was poorly lighted at night. I felt a little unsafe because there were two young people loitering at the back entrance with no lighting. I do have to say I would make a point to not stay at this hotel again, even if I had to pay more to stay at a higher-quality place.
