Hard to beat a warm soak after a long day while watching the fireworks. On the downside, it's a longer walk than some properties, they do not offer free breakfast, and as mentioned already the prices have been creeping up. Like all the walkable properties, the decor is a bit dated but the place is clean and well kept. If you're looking for fresh and new in a walkable property, you have to open the wallet and stay onsite.
That is true. I do open my wallet. I also wait until slow seasons so the prices are cheaper at the nicer hotels. Since we only stay one night or two it is a doable option.

This is very important to those who are throwing $200 rack rates around and comparing it to what they may have been quoted in the past at a DLH or what one may get with a limited AP discount. Everything needs to be put into perspective. Comparing the best deal you were ever offered to a rack rate very few people pay at HoJos is absurd. The rack rate is not fixed. It's seasonal. So like the example above, a premium room at $79 means a rack rate of $158. A deluxe or standard room should be cheaper if available on those dates. Summer, holiday, and school break periods will always see higher rack rates and for the most part were exempt from retro rates.

Also, just to keep things in perspective. PPH rack rate for those dates is $240/night.

That makes sense. Our last trip was 10 nights. if I were only doing a night or two I would have popped for the $400+ this summer and taken advantage of the DLH benefits. Instead of three nights at DLH, we stayed 10 at HoJos.

When I got the email today, I called about my existing reservation and they changed it for me to the Super Family rate. I am getting the 2 doubles in Nov for 74.50 on Sat and 64.50 Sun-Thurs. So It must just depend on when you are going.

I did go to their website earlier and also their discussion board, but they don't actually list their regular rates anywhere that I can find.

It's because the rates vary, (from high season to low season, etc.) so you have to enter specific dates on the website, and then view the regular non-discounted rates. Hope this helps!

I was told the same thing. I signed up to receive the e-mails but wasn't sent one. Could someone forward me a copy? Thanks!

This is the complete opposite of what I was told! Ugh! They really need to figure their *stuff* out!

I specifically asked, "do I need to show/bring anything when I check in?" To which I was told, "no, you're fine, you're all set".

Guess I'll be going back & printing out my email now. Thanks for the heads up, always good to be prepared!

Amen to everything you said. Plus I like your user name.

I called and got my rooms for $69.50 a night for a double standard. I saw that some people talked about double double room. What is that? Last time I was there we stayed in building 4. What rooms are those? I thought they were double standard. It had a micro, fridge, balcony, and a closet with a rollaway. (we didn't use it) I really liked our room, and want to make sure we are getting something similar this time. I didn't book the room last time though, so I am just not sure...


Oops, it didn't have a microwave I guess.

OK, never mind, I just watched the videos on the site. I guess it was a double double. Perfect. We like to put an air mattress on the floor, and there is plenty of room in those rooms. Just wish I wasn't paying $127 for one night. Oh well, still a good deal with my 3 nights at $69.50...

We too recieved an email about the super family rates. We called to see if we could change one of our days to the 50% off and they said yes, but what it amounted to is just $16.00 off what we were paying anyway because they raised the regular rates so high. So it wasn't 50% off what we had originally booked at, it was 50% off what the rates are now. Still, $16.00 is $16.00!

I would really like Hojo to address this question. I still haven't received a family rate email and I'd like to know why.
