“A Decent Place to Spend a Night or Two.”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 4 June 2014

I wanted a comfortable hotel near the subway for around $100/night. This place fit the bill. The clientele seemed to include families and tourists (many seemed to be from overseas). In other words, the hotel seems popular with those paying their own way (no expense account) or on package tours. I didn't get the impression many business travelers stayed there.

Pros:
--Older property but my room felt remodeled and updated, not tired.
--Nice TV with a full complement of channels including HBO.
--Near the subway (if you care). Hotel also has it's own parking garage. It seemed to be first-come, first-served.
--Decent breakfast included in rate. The selection was mostly carbohydrates: cold cereal, make your own waffles, breads for toasting.
--Felt clean.
--My room had a fridge and microwave. I'm not sure if this is standard or if this was just the room that was available. I didn't use either but it was convenient it was there.

Cons:
--Noisy neighborhood. Plenty of traffic.
--This is an inner city area. I felt safe-enough walking around during the day but not so much at night.
--TV was mounted in an awkward position for easy viewing.
--Bed and pillows were a little lumpy.

Room Tip: Many (all?) rooms have fridge and microwave. So ask when you check in if you need these.

Howard Johnson is very convenient for me and my sweetheart.
A pleasant place to relax. Staff are accommodating
especially Alex, Malou and of course Ruby. The only thing we
missed is the smoking room but it doesnt matter.
A clean room and nice staff are the one we cherished most.

Room Tip: Rooms are nice and clean

Stayed about a week at Hojo LA. Room was well kept and clean with great amenities ( microwave oven, mini bar, ironing board, tv, wifi, coffee maker). I would say that the king sized bed was an experienced, I had to practically climb up the bed( think its about 3 feet high), its comfortable too! Continental breakfast was provided - pretty decent. Its within walking distance to koreatown and also the metro line bus and train. Great for budget travellers!
