Stayed about a week at Hojo LA. Room was well kept and clean with great amenities ( microwave oven, mini bar, ironing board, tv, wifi, coffee maker). I would say that the king sized bed was an experienced, I had to practically climb up the bed( think its about 3 feet high), its comfortable too! Continental breakfast was provided - pretty decent. Its within walking distance to koreatown and also the metro line bus and train. Great for budget travellers!

Staying at the Howard Johnson hotel was an overall great experience, despite having dealt with the rude manager, David. As I walked towards the front desk, David was on the phone and did not apologize for being on the phone as he continued on with his conversation and ignored my presence. Speaking to him about my room was dreadful because of his condescending attitude and unfriendly personality. He should seriously consider working in a different field that does not involve with customer service.

However, I was really pleased with my hotel room as it was nice and spacious. The bathroom was exceptionally clean and I was provided with the necessary amenities. I really loved the complementary breakfast. Also, I absolutely love the location of this hotel as it is in the heart of Los Angeles and every place, like Beverly Hills or Santa Monica, is a short distance away.

I also would like to point out how friendly the cleaning staff is and was thankful on my second day of my stay that there was another person working the front desk with the name of Malou. Malou was super friendly and kind--the complete opposite of David. Malou was so helpful and willing to answer all of my questions.

Overall, I recommend staying at this hotel, but I do feel bad if you have to deal with David. The hotel itself compensates for his rude and patronizing demeanor!
