Howard Johnson Inn & Suites Reseda
Ranked #82 of 355 Hotels in Los Angeles
Reviewed August 16, 2010

I was looking for a hotel that was inexpensive and allowed smoking (partner smokes). As with most places in suburbs of Los Angeles, you do need a car to get to most places from here but location is not bad, about 45 minutes to many areas of Los Angeles (not during rush hour of course). CVS drugstore is next door.
We stayed in a regular room for 2 nights, it was clean, had a coffee maker, small refrigerator, TV, free wireless internet (a bit slow at times), free morning breakfast room (breads, danish, coffee, juice, etc.).
Hotel has secured parking (gated, use room card to access) and parking is free. Even though it was a smoking room, the room smelled fresh. We paid about $75 a night plus tax, substantially less than most other hotels around Los Angeles and a very good value. No complaints - check-in was easy, daily maid service, etc. You aren't getting a luxury room for this rate of course but it's more than you might get at budget hotels at around the same rate. Hotel is within 5-10 minutes of the 101 and 118 Highways.
We traveled to Pasadena and Malibu and this hotel location was a good compromise for location and price.
I would recommend this hotel to others.

The motel is updated and pretty nice. The rooms are clean and have fairly big bathrooms. We stayed in a double queen room. The TV was a flat screen mounted to the wall and there was a larger than normal room refrigerator. The daily breakfast was standard fare, pastries, cereal and fruit.
The staff was very nice. When checking in and out, I met the owners. They were very friendly and had no problems with us checking in an hour and a half early. Upon leaving, a happy face was stamped on my bill because the owners wanted us to leave with a smile. Some might find that corny, but I work in the hospitality industry and I found it refreshing. I did leave with a smile.
Located midway between Six Flags Magic Mountain and Dodger Stadium. You travel a bit to reach the 405 or 101 freeways, but there is a lot in the surrounding area such as a CVS pharmacy next door, as well as many restaurants within a few miles. These range from higher end offerings on Ventura Blvd to the usual fast food places on Reseda Blvd. Starbucks is close.

Stayed for three nights for sightseeing in LA and Universal Studios. We were a bit apprehensive about the location when we drove up to the motel but realised after that it was not an issue. We didn't however feel inclined to go walking around the area after dark. The parking was in a secure area behind a gate at the back of the motel.
The room was clean and spacious and met our needs. The swimming pool was adequate for a quick swim. There is a supermarket right next door which was convenient. The only issue we had with our stay was the fuss made when I asked for three extra pillows and was told rather curtly that only one extra pillow per room was allowed! Breakfast was good and served in the spacious lobby. Overall happy with stay based on the fact that the price was very good.

OK hotel, not the cleanest, awful buzzing in room. Room 262
Very loud guests (teenagers throwing each othe rin the pool at 1am) , hotel staff do nothing about this.

Would not stay here again.

Recommend spending a bit more money and staying somewhere much nicer.

HI Karoboo,

Thank you for staying at our hotel. Let me apologize for your experience at our hotel.
We firmly believe in great customer service. Our hotel staff provides guest with complaint regarding noise the opportunity to move to a new room whenever it's needed. About the pool at 1:00 am. i have not seen any notes in our log book regarding the noise from other guest. Our pool hours are from 9:00 am to 9:00 pm. The hotel cleaning staff is fully supervised at all time regarding the rooms. I am sorry if this time we may have had a lapse. Please give us another opportunity next time you are in LA to serve you better. Many guest that have stayed with us found our rooms exceptionally clean.

Best Regard,

Management

We stayed in the Howard Johnson Reseda for 4 nights in July. We went to this hotel on the basis of the very favourable reviews on Trip Advisor and I have to say we were very pleased. We pre-booked some months in advance and were able to get 20% off plus we reserved adjoining rooms with a connecting door (rooms 205 & 206). Specific points of note:
- Location to the N of LA. Ideal for Universal, Hollywood and Getty but too far for Disney!
- Not the best area in the world but providing you have a car not a problem
- Secure and free parking!
- Friendly and helpful staff
- Large clean rooms and very comfortable beds
- Free breakfast ideal. Not a vast choice but toast, bagels, cereal, tea and coffee and certainly enough to get us going each day.
It's easy to be picky and find faults (there are always some) but remember this is only a
2* hotel!

Dear RichardW99,

Thank you for your fine comments regarding your stay with us. We glad you found our location close to Universal Studios, Hollywood and the Getty museum. Many guest from Europe and around the world making a trip to Los Angeles go to Hollywood ,visit Getty Museum and Universal studios. Making our location easy by car. We are close to the Freeway 101 and 405.
Guest visit Santa Monica And Venice beach as well. Many guests travelling today are very price sensitive. We provide the best service and the cleanest rooms. Just to clarify it is the ammenities the make the star rating not the service and the cleanliness. 2 star means we are a economical hotel not a full service hotel that provides room service or have a restaurant in the hotel or conferance centres. Hope you have a great trip back to the UK.
Look forward to see you again.

Cheers,

Management

We stayed at this Howard Johnson hotel as a base to explore Hollywood and to visit Universal Studios. The hotel was very easy to find, the reception staff were extremely friendly and efficient. The hotel itself might not be the best looking place but the rooms were spacious and we were very pleasantly surprised to find that we had a separate bedroom, with the kids sleeping on the large sofa-bed. The room was newly refurbished, spotlessly clean and extremely comfortable. The secure parking and free (very easily accessible high-speed internet) were all bonuses. All-in-all, an extremely positive experience. A highly recommendable budget hotel.

Dear scortes,

Thank you for sharing your review of our hotel with the traveling public. Our hotel has many guest from all over the world stay with us when visiting the Los Angeles Hollywood area.
We are located close to the 101 and the 405 freeway for easy access to Universal studios and the Hollywood walk of fame area. Many travellers get frustrated in the downtown area with the noise and the traffic. They prefer being 10 to 15 miles away. Our location with the economical pricing make it the place to be. We provide clean rooms,great service and a free smile to all our guests. We will share your lovely comments with our staff to encourage the same level of service to our present and future customers.

Cheers,

Management
