The personnel on the front desk were very knowledgeable. They showed us how to get to the places we wanted to visit using public transportation. The bus stop was a few blocks away and the $7 pass could be used for either bus or trolly.

I was attending a conference at the Sheraton Marina and could not afford the room nor the parking or resort fee there. I opted to stay at hojos instead and use uber for transportation to save some money. Overall, the hotel was a good value.

Had a very comfortable stay at the HoJo. The rooms were cleaned everyday, the bed was comfortable, nice having the fridge, pretty close to everything you want to do. The breakfast was boring after the 3rd or 4th day, but hey it is complimentary and you can't complain too much about that!
