“Impressed by Howard Johnson”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 19, 2008

I booked the hotel through Priceline (which has disappointed me before) so I was apprehensive about what the hotel would be like. I was able to find a few reviews of this specific Howard Johnson which were all positive. When we arrived at the hotel we were pleasantly surprised to find that the property is clean and well maintained. The lobby was nice and welcoming. The staff was effecient and friendly. Our room was ready for us and we were happy to find it had a safe, microwave and fridge. My husband and I were staying with our four small children so we were concerned about safety. This hotel is well-lit and felt safe and private. In fact, just as we arrived on Friday night the window in our car broke so that it would not close. With our full schedule we weren't able to get the window fixed until Monday afternoon. We were grateful to be able to park our car with an open window in a safe, well-lit parking lot. We stayed through two weekends and although the parking lot filled up, it was very quiet and restful. There is a small pool so we spent some time swimming. There is also an ice machine and soda machine near the rooms. The continental breakfast was donuts, cold cereal and juice. It stayed open until 10 am which was perfect for my children. The location of this hotel was very convenient for the things we had planned to do in the LA/Long Beach area. There are many restaurant and shopping choices nearby. Our room was clean and well maintained throughout the week. Check out went off without a hitch and we feel that we got a great deal on the room. We had a fantastic experience and would recommend anyone stay at the Howard Johson in Pico Rivera.

This hotel was one of the best hotels I've ever stayed at even better than the Ritz Carlton Pasadena!!!!!! I was going to training at Rio Hondo college and decided to stay there because the traffic home was too much. The staff was professional, the room was extremely clean all four nights I stayed and the surrounding area accommodated every need I had. Locally there was a Rite Aid, next door a 99 cent store and a pretty cheap Exxon gas station. Down Whittier Blvd. there was a Target, Food 4 less and a new movie theater. The natives were pretty friendly being that I was the only black man in the surrounding city limit. The only draw back was that the breakfast could have been better. Cereal and English muffins with coffee or orange juice was not enough but over all it was better than nothing. I would highly recommend this hotel to families and business travelers.

  • Liked — The clean room, and friendly staff.
  • Disliked — The breakfast

I was told that the HoJo Pico Rivera was opened in August 2007 and when I stayed there, it looked indeed brand new and spotless. The room was large and clean and included all amenities one could imagine. The staff was friendly and efficient. The neighbourhood seems pretty safe and there is a small mall just across the road. Considering this a budget hotel, it is certainly a good choice for LA.
