I really liked the hotel. I was surprised by the selection they had for the breakfast they include with your stay. Most hotels that I have stayed at have coffee and maybe a danish if you get up early enough. but here i had my choice of bagels, toast, cereal and even waffles. Now I'm not a person who goes...

I booked the hotel a few weeks before our stay and emailed the hotel twice to ask for early check in. They never got back to me and I regret not making the international call to confirm this. We arrived at HoJo at 12:00pm after a 13 hour flight from Sydney and were told we would have to wait a... More

The area was good for our purposes, (longish) walking distance to Redondo Beach and the place was quiet. The main complains were the fitlhy carpet (sticky),... More
