4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 25, 2014

The hotel was clean and the room was nice. I got it at a great price. The same room in West LA would have been $100 a night. My only other comment would be that the internet access was not available two nights of my four night stay. I was in room 114, and this room is in the northeast corner of the building, ground floor. My window faced a gravel path and a huge hedge, really no problem with that, but as a woman traveling alone, the first night I was there, I was a bit concerned about the safety (no bars or other visible security). The neighborhood was ok though and I had no trouble. I felt safe. The parking situation was great and the staff was helpful. Could use more pillows to give that extra touch.

This is just what you would expect for the brand.

We stayed one night while visiting the L.A. area. On a positive note the room and grounds were clean.

The reception area is a secured area for the clerk with a heavy glass or fiberglass window between the customer and clerk. This does not create a great first impressions, but I guess the safety of the employees trumps that.

The room was spacious but the bed which was advertised as a queen was probably a double. There were two pillows on the bed and they were the worst, smallest, and thinnest I have ever encounted. I used a spare bathtowel (not very large) under the pillow to create a little comfort.

My recommendation is if you stay here bring your own pillow. The bathroom was large, but provided no hook near the tub/shower for your bathrobe or towel.

Breakfast was as other reviews observed. Very sparse consisting of rice krispies, sugar froasted flakes, a few sad pieces of bread and weak luke warm coffee.

This motel is fine for a one one stay based solely on the price.

This hotel restored my faith in the Howard Johnson brand. It was clean, nice facilities and an excellent rate. It was conveniently located with lots of commercial activity all within close walking distance. (And one of favorite 99 cent only stores one block away). The front desk clerk was really super helpful and upgraded me and allowed an early check in. The cleaning staff was really nice and did a great job - although a negative on that part was that they didn't get the hair cleaned out properly - and I recommend highly that the hotel review this with their cleaning staff - there was hair in the shower, the sheets, I even asked if they were clean sheets. It really grossed me out, but I didn't drop the star rating because the cleaning staff did work hard to make up for it and all else was quite good. They just recently installed large flat screen televisions with internet capability - HOWEVER, unfortunately, they may not have internet capability because they told me they were not going to give the powerful internet remotes (why spend the money then?), I recommend that management review that policy as well, it really would be a plus. The breakfast was sparse, but traveling with children it would certainly make the affordable accommodation well worth it.
