Central area

Posted Apr 14, 2014
Easy to get to staples centre and easy to get to Hollywood. Area looked sketchy but it's actually not. Bed was comfy, morning front desk person (David) should smile and be a bit more friendlier and welcoming. Need to add fruits to their breakfast instead of having 3types of bread!

The hotel looked as if it was under renovations.

Posted Apr 5, 2014
There were wires along the hallways dangling, paint chipped on the walls, crown moldings missing, paper thin walls; so you pretty much can hear the people in the next room and certain pieces in our room, such as the door stopper was loose which my one year old was able to get a hold of and almost cut his fingers on the screws. Last but not least, the staff was rude!

I am sorry that your experience did not meet your expectation. Please allow me to give my sincerest apology. I will discuss your comments with the staff as we strive to improve the quality of our rooms and our service. The wireless internet system is receiving a significant upgrade this week. The wires will soon be back in the crown molding and the hallways will once again look new. We would like to receive a second chance. Please make us your hotel destination next time you are in town. Sincerely,

BASIC BUT GREAT HOTEL.

Posted Mar 23, 2014
The Howard Johnson has everything that you need for a basic stay. Perfect, specially if you are in LA for business. The breakfast is simple but something that we should appreciate and the rates are very correct. Also, the staff is very friendly always ready to help if needed. I'd recommend you, if you need a safe and clean place to sleep. I'll definitely come back.

Good, affordable hotel

Posted Mar 19, 2014
Pros: The friendly staff, clean rooms.
Cons: Directions to and from places.
Location: On the border of Korea town, super friendly community. Close to a 24 hour walgreens which helped. Close to subway and main bus routes. Great location.
We chose this hotel as we wanted to be close to downtown and close to a metro line. This hotel offered both. It was clean, felt safe and a very friendly and helpful front desk. The earthquake was a lot of fun to experience.

Good central location

Posted Mar 16, 2014
Pros: Location was central to a lot of places that we wanted to visit.
Cons: Thermal windows should be installed to cut down on outside noise.
Location: We went to the Staple Center and the Grammy Museum which were within 10 miles.
The inclusion of the continental breakfast really saved us a lot of money during our stay. The staff were helpful, professional and very pleasant. All in all a good value for your money.

Good enough

Posted Mar 16, 2014
Pros: The bed!!!!
Cons: The toilet since it clogged a lot.
It could definitely use a few updates. The bed was the best part of it all. I slept really good. We only spent 1 night so it was very quick. We checked in late & their parking lot (security guard a plus) was small and full by the time we came late at night. However they had extra parking across the street. Not as safe but better than driving around looking for parking. Didn't need to interact with the staff much so I can't say much there. The toilet would clog so it took a couple flushes & then it was all good. I would recommend this place for a quick stay & I woks stay here again.

Loved the hotel!

Posted Mar 9, 2014
I was a little scared to try expedia for the first time, especially going to L.A, but this hotel blew away my expectations. The bed was probably the most comfortable hotel bed I've ever slept in. Overall I had no problems and the lady at the front desk was super nice.
