Huh. No HoJo I ever stayed in looked this cool.

I know, right? I wish the janky motels would get a clue.

Any chance it still remains the same?

...no chance.

I WISH, Teri - otherwise I'd be stay-cationing every chance I got at the best of the Best Westerns and Days Inns!

That is unbelievable! I can just imagine today's HoJo design team walking into one of these full of embarrassment. It just really makes me hate the term "updating"

I know, right? "Where are the mauve accents and blonde faux wood frames?" Plus the last HoJo I stayed in had a pubic hair on my pillow. I hate you, United Airlines!

I LOVE Stephen Shore. You are speaking to my heart.
