Nice Hotel, closed to many shops and restaurent

Posted 2-Aug-2015
Pros: Location and comfort
Cons: Breakfast
Location: Universal studio is just 12 mile but traffic can take your drive time up to an hour.
Great location, comfortable room, and comfy bed. There are many restaurant across the street so you won't need to drive for a meal. The only downside is the breakfast. Nothing hot & fresh, only bread with a toaster, and cereals, milk, orange or apple juice, and coffee. Still it's better than not serving breakfast at all. Overall I'm satisfied with my stay.

Comfortable and Central Location in LA

Posted 23-Jul-2015
Pros: Location, Howard Johnson name and quality
Cons: Hotel service window bell's ringing is too weak that nobody can hear.
Location: A comprehensive shopping mall is just next door to the hotel. And the location is perfect, close to freeway 605 and freeway 5. Should have own car.
First time to book and live in this hotel. Very good experience and a straight recommendation after two nights' stay there a few days ago! I traveled with my 16 year old son and we had a rental car. The hotel's location is perfect, central in LA area and just next to 605 freeway and close to 5 freeway, convenient to drive to anywhere in Greater LA area. Perhaps the most cost effective hotel in the region under the brand name Howard Johnson. We feel we made a good choice! The weakness includes a really simple breakfast and the really weak sound of service window bell's ringing.

Hotel direkt an der Hauptstraße

Posted 19-Jul-2015
Hotel war für den Preis ok. Das inklusive Frühstück ist aber nicht erwähnenswert da es öfters nichts mehr gab und nur unfreiwillig nachgelegt wurde.

Good option for a couple of days

Posted 7-Jul-2015
Cons: I would ask if they could served the milk in its original container and keep it refrigerated, offer some bagels and cream cheese too.
I try to choose this hotel for just a day or two when arriving late night at LAX and is a great option, it's clean, safe and affordable. It only lacks in its breakfast and that is because is very simple and with limited options.

Convenient location

Posted 27-May-2015
Francisco was rude. We got there 2 hr and some min before check in time. I asked him at the window if we could wait in the lobby he said he just moped so no. I wait 20 min and see the lobby is closed go back to the window and ask again. He then says check in time is 3:00 and that's when the lobby will open

Average hotel

Posted 27-May-2015
Pros: The room was some what clean. Had a small microwave & small refrigerator.
Cons: They need improvements in the bathroom and breakfast items as well as providing tongs for the employees and guests to use for more cleanliness.
Location: We didn't do anything near by. The location was not the greatest, but there are several places to eat along the street.
Howard Johnson was supposed to have a good reputation. The room was clean, but the bathroom was small with no counter space for toiletries. The wash cloths/towels were put on top of toilet tank where germs and bacteria can get on them every time you flush the toilet. We woke up to find a leak in the bathroom with water on the floor, which made it difficult to use the bathroom and shower without getting our feet and pants wet (which happened). They didn't give us a courtesy discount for the inconvenience. They had a combo light switch/fan in bathroom which was so noisy when you use the bathroom during the night. Need to install another light switch only so it won't wake us up at night. The breakfast was lacking, only sliced bread (she used bare hands without gloves or tongs to take out the bread) and cereal. Other hotels I went to had bagels, waffles and hot food. There were no lids for the coffee cups to take to go. I will definitely NOT come back to this hotel again.

Nice hotel and spacious room.

Posted 23-May-2015
Pros: Free parking, free wifi, spacious room.
Cons: The lighting in the rooms, thicker walls?
Location: We travelled more than 10+ miles by car to get anywhere, but that was ok for us.
The hotel was great. We just needed somewhere to sleep, as you normally go on holiday and spend the day out instead of being in the hotel room! The room was spacious and clean - definitely worth the money. The only downside, was the room lighting. It was a little dark to my liking. We also had a fridge and a microwave and we didn't even ask for it - so that was a bonus. The walls are a little thin (we heard a someone in the next room having a great time with someone), and one night there was a helicopter going round in circles with the bright light on - that was interesting. But other than that, it was very pleasant and worth the money. The breakfast was ok - bread, cereal and porridge. Would have been great to have more of a selection, but it was ok for us.

ruhige Lage, sauber

Posted 20-May-2015
Pros: Zimmer
Cons: Frühstück erweitern. Mehr Tische und Stühle...
Location: L.A. besichtigen.. Verkehr beachten, lange Fahrt.
Zimmer waren sauber und groß. Frühstück war ungenügend vorhanden, keine Plätze und keine Auswahl. Nur Brot mit Butter und Marmelade, meist alle.
