Howard Johnson Inn & Suites Reseda
Ranked #86 of 357 Hotels in Los Angeles
Reviewed 25 June 2010

At first glance the hotel seems too far away from the center of Los Angeles. But actually, the hotel has a great strategic location as it is very close to sites like Santa Monica, Hollywood, Beverly Hills or Universal Studios. Well, traveling by car of course (highly recommended in L.A. and California in general!).

The hotel is in a quiet neighborhood, the staff is very friendly, the rooms are good and the price correct and rather exceeds the value one would expect. There is even a swimming pool for those who like to spend some extra time in the hotel! And a simple breakfast is also included! Not to forget is also the free parking (this should be the case evreywhere but you will see how many hotels make you pay to park your car!)

My wife, baby, and I stayed here for 4 nights May, and we were quite pleased. LA hotels are very expensive, and those on a budget should consider this place, which is fairly priced. The location is a bit out of the way, but you're less than 10 minutes from the freeway (either 101 or 405). The LA freeways are worse than ever, but if you avoid rush hour and accidents, you can be downtown or in West LA within a half an hour. (Get traffic reports on 1070AM). LAX was also about 35 minutes, and that was at rush hour (but traffic was moving then).
The neighborhood is NOT dangerous; there is gated parking, but frankly, it isn't necessary. We mostly just parked out front and had no problem. I would walk around this neighorhood at night without any hesitation.
By the way, another review said the apartment complex behind the hotel was run down. I disagree. Perhaps the reviewer was some sort of a millionaire and is used to mansions next door.
The hotel is simply in one of the many parts of LA that aren't very charming (strip malls, etc.). Next to the hotel is a CVS, an auto repair shop, etc. There are some great ethnic restaurants in the neighborhood, including a great Mexican place on Vanowen, called Las Fuentes.
The rooms in the front of the hotel get some street noise, and there's a fire station across the street, though we only heard a siren once in four days. We were close to the front, and the noise didn't bother us very much, but if you're sensitive, ask for a room back from the street. The hotel is very quiet inside, and we heard no noise at all from other guests.
The breakfast is pretty minimal: two kinds of cold cereal, muffins, bread, juice, coffee.
Many rooms have no microwave oven, but you can use the microwave in the lobby. We had a small refrigerator in our room.
There is a small pool and jacuzzi, but they could be cleaned a bit more frequently. They're not heated.
The rooms were spotless and recently renovated (granite counters in the bath, etc.). We had two Sharp Aquos flat-screen TVs in our suite. The hotel overall is in excellent shape. Our suite was a true one-bedroom, with a door you can close between the bedroom and the living room (unlike some "suites" we have seen).
The housekeepers were very nice and responded instantly to requests for extra towels.
The management and front desk people were very friendly and seemed to care a lot about our satisfaction.
We definitely recommend this place, as long as you aren't hoping for a charming setting or a central location. Unless you're willing to spend a lot more, you can't expect everything, and frankly, this place is a very good deal for LA.

This hotel worked out very well for us. It is in a safe area away from freeway and road noise. It is less than 30 minutes from LAX, but there is no noise of planes taking off and landing. It was very convenient to all the activities in the area. There is a good pool and hot tub. Everything worked and was in very good coondition. The front desk personnel were helpful and friendly. We enjoyed this hotel. There is free wireless internet in the room. There is no elevator; so people who don't want to carry their suitcase up steps should request a first floor suite. We asked the front desk for restaurant recommendations and were told about 2 places close by. We went to the Top Thai restaurant and it was very good and they gave us a 10% discount. The food was excellent. If we had goone to Acapulco we could have gotten a 20% discount. The continental breakfast was more than adequate.

The staff was terrific, and provided excellent customer service. The hotel itself is pretty modest, but the rooms were clean and the beds comfortable. An excellent bargain. I'd stay there again. Highly recommended.
