    The Room had all the facilities that were advertised.

    The room was very cramped. The AC made lot of noise. They were very few choices at the breakfast Buffet. The overall decor had a old feel to it.

    The Manager Mr Patel was rude and discourteous. Because of him I do not plan to stay at that particular Ho Jo again

    I was traveling with a moving truck and there was a big light in the parking lot where I could see the trailer with no problem from the motel room. Also, upon entering, the room smelled fresh.

    The "breakfast" consisted of store-bought, packaged muffins and some miniature bagels, mostly bruised bananas, cheap tea bags and a juice machine--as "continental" breakfasts go--it was the minimimalist passible. Some patching together of repairs in the room of sorts (built in 1986) so not everything so picturesque in nature or perfectly matching etc., but everything absolutely functional as would be expected in a very good two star establishment. After leaving had bizarre experience of proprieter calling and stating that a pillow was missing from room. I did not remove a pillow. He should have checked security tape to see who entered room after I left to see what happened to it. I've never had such a weird thing happen.

    This is an old hotel, shabby. The breakfast was packaged muffins and buns. Disappointing.

    It was located in a quiet section of G'ville, but still a bit far from the center of town where the good restaurants and the University of Florida are found.

    Sounds from neighboring rooms were a bit annoying due to poor insulation.

    Was very close to the event that we were attending. Accomidations were very nice and the staff was very helpful. Lots of great restaurants within short driving distance. UF was also within a 15-20 minute drive but far enoough away to avoid any traffic. We would definately book again.

    Very old chipped furniture. Only .two very small tables for 3, available for continental breakfast. Hand to wait a long time for table. Very poor breakfast compared to Comfort Inn. Wireless internet did not work for me o For ladies in the lobby I met at breakfast.

    We booked it for the great price, so we were suprised how nice the hotel room was.

    It was close enough to my Doctor`s office but not far enough away from the noisy car thumping radio`s that kept me up .

    This was our second stay @ hj, and I never had a problem. The place provides microwave and refrigerator, in which we save money on food. Their continental breakfast is small, but something is something worst is nothing. I will definitely stay here again. Thank you
