2 of 5 stars Reviewed April 24, 2012

We stayed in this hotel for a week in April and it was a no frills kind of hotel.

The building itself is pretty old and the location of the hotel is a bit unsecure. It located near Korea Town and I would not have a family staying with children staying here. There were homeless and drunk being hanging around the hotel and on one instance the man behind the desk sent the cleaning lady out to see what was happening!

Our room was pretty dated, with chips in lamps and a cracking bathroom wall. The shower was for “short people” I am 5’7” and it is impossible to wash your hair without crouching down. The carpet had big stain marks on it all night you could hear ambulances and police cars screaming up the road, or people arguing and yelling at each other from the street.

The free continental breakfast was good, with 2 choices of cereal, toast and bagels and orange juice and coffee.

The reception desk was alright and the cleaners were the best part of the hotel. They were so nice and friendly.

I probably wouldn’t stay at this hotel again just because of safety concerns, it did not bother me that the room was old, all I am after is cheap accommodation that comes with your own bathroom!

Manager is a RUDE foreigner, Filthy rooms, moldy, bugs, doors dont even close all the way big gaps on top, crummy TV, BAD WIFI, they tell you if you dont like the WIFI to come sit in the dirty lobby and use it there. They are so dumb and rude its unbelievable, security guard is an idiot, I watched him assault someone who wanted to pick his friend (a guest) up for dinner. UNBELIEVABLE....... Do you read Korean? Better learn to stay here Rude Rude Rude....

Bed bugs, i should have read review....Bed bugs, bed bugs,,, and shower bath tub does't drain......

They should've named as Motel, not Hotel...

I cant say that this place has worst service because there is No service at all.

They're currently remodeling some rooms but I didn't notice any dust or inconvenience.

Stayed in LA's Howard Johnson midway through March 2012 while travelling. I drove for a number of hours in LA trying to find a decent place for a reasonable price and stumbled across Howard Johnson. The price is the most reasonable i came across, the location was perfect, close to downtown, parking indoors, and the room was nice and clean. The staff are also very helpful and incredibly honest. I accidently left my passport and some cash in the room when i checked out, and when i realised and contacted them and got it all back down to the last dollar.

I cant recommend this hotel enough and am staying here again on my way back through.
