I am writing from The Bevery Garland Holiday Inn* in North Hollywood, this supposedly 3.5-star hotel is not even half as good as the Howard Johnson Reseda. I like almost everything about this hotel except for two things...

1. Location: If you don't drive, you really don't want to stay here - and I am good at taking LA's public buses, no grocery store or fast food restaurant within walking distance - unless you don't mind walking 30 minutes or longer. (There are two Vietnamese restaurants a few minutes walk from the hotel, I tried one of them, their cooking was mediocre at best.

2, Cigarette Smoke: Although I stayed in a non-smoking room on a non-smoking floor, I could smell cigarette smoke very often, even putting a thick towel under the door did not help.

*WARNING! Although I booked a 3.5-star hotel at hotwire (May 24-28), they gave me a 3-star Holiday Inn and hotwire won't offer any refund or compensation, instead, to rub salt to injury, they sent me a link to their website that clearly shows Holiday Inn is a 3-star hotel... Our 3-star hotels include:Holiday Inn, Radisson, DoubleTree... http://www.hotwire.com/pop-up/hotel-ratings-popup.jsp

Very good for your money,affordable, convienent for shopping. Staff at the hotel were very friendly. Rooms were very clean and tidy. You can not go wrong for the money your paying. I would stay here and drive to north hollywood and disneyland because you can save money on your rooms and spend it on your vacation. Highly recommendable.

During our trip to America we spent 2 nights at the Howard Johnson Inn Reseda. Satisfied customers on tripadvisor advised to book a room in this hotel, and I must admit, it really is a good hotel!
We had a nice large room, very clean, a beautiful bathroom, probably just renovated, and each morning a good breakfast. The staff was very helpful and friendly and did everything to make our stay a pleasant one. Although it isn't close to the major attractions in L.A. (about half an hour drive) it is worth booking, especially considering the price!
A small detail: we read on Tripadvisor that there is a parking especially for guests. We weren't told of this possibility upon check-in, and left our car in front of the entrance in a small parking close to the road. Although nothing happened (it seems to be a safe neighbourhood) we would have appreciated it leaving our rental car in a safe parking.
But: when returning to this area we will definitely book this hotel again!

My family were visiting my Sister's family for March break , in L.A. We had want staying in affordable hotel, we found the Howard Johnson through TripAdvisor.

I'm SO glad we decided to stay at Howard Johnson Inn, in Reseda. The hotel staff were friendly, courteous, helpful, and knowledgeable about the area.

Our rooms were clean and very spacious exactly what we had hoped for: comfortable, elegantly designed, and well-appointed. Amenities included shampoo, conditioner, lotion and soap, and a small tube of toothpaste. The fridge inour allowed us to keep food in the room, and there was a coffeemaker and coffee. With two small boys this was a blessing.

There was bathtub, with a shower, the water pressure was good and we never ran out of hot water.

Everything seemed solidly constructed, and we never heard our neighbours.

The rooms included Wifi, cable TV and were able to access the Internet with no problem.

Breakfast included a selection of pastries, muffins, fruit, yogurt, instant oatmeal, milk and juice, coffee and tea. You could eat in the small sitting area in the reception area, or outside on the patio beside a lovely wall fountain.

It was a pleasant change to be able to pick up some fruit or use the microwave whenever I felt like it; I'm so used to places where you have to pay for every little thing.

Though we didn't have time to use it, there was also a nice pool for swimming and little outdoor patio area, with two small tables and some chairs.

My Family and I are definitely coming back!
