“Kind of stuck and in need of a room.”

  , Tucson
Trip was to a wedding and stay with a relative, My GF after a night said find a hotel, since one was not in our budget we checked Hotels.com, not many people like this hotel on there so this review is pretty funny.The hotel looks like it was built in 1970 and the decor is similiar, the bathrooms are small and the toilet is at a weird angle, just like the counter, We both wore contacts and had to straddle the toilet just to get close to the mirror to put them in. The staff gave us a key to the outside door but it is so warped it never locked, our room flip over lock was missing a bottom rivet. The carpet looks like it is original as does the bed spread, I wonder if it is ever washed, the mattress is worn, the heater smells, like it is never vacuumed. My GF also started sneezing there, maybe from Mold, we stayed Sunday through Sat AM, never got to eat the food in the morning and the coffee was lousy, when we left on Saturday, there were 9 bagels and some donuts, bread for toasting, not a big deal to us as we went out for real food in the AM> Indian or Turkish people run it and possibly are family. We asked for new towels on Wednesday night as we were nice and didnt let them into room and kept our towels for a few days,, The Housekeeper lady was nice, her husband had a fit, and followed me back to our room to retreive our old towels which are very small and not worth trying to steal, not that we would.Over all, the hotel is is located in a good spot for me as my relatives are within 5 miles of it, Riens Deli is next door and the Vernon Diner is in front of, Plenty of Pizza places within 5-6 miles too. If HOJOs spent a bit of money cleaning it up or just spraying Fabreeze in the rooms after cleaning, it might not have been so shabby,, Internet reception was slow, and no printer available in lobby ( and a slow computer) to print out plane tickets, which again was no big deal, we did it at the airport..This hotel was a far cry from the Residence inn in Windsor where we stayed one night for the wedding, but it was 120 a night ( Great Breakfast) compared to the 50 bucks we paid for Hojos,, I didnt smell bleach in the shower and wondered how many other behinds rubbed the shower curtain along with mine as it hangs straight. alot of hotels have the curved rod..We were in a pinch and the Quality inn next door was 100 bucks a night, there is also some coupon in some paper that you can get that will get you the room cheaper too..
