When you arrive to Howard Johnson, it does not says much from the outside, but checking in was a bliss, staff is really kind and our room was very nice with a big space, breakfast was simple, but ok for us, also the room was very clean with a confortable bed, location is excellent, five minutes by car to old town Pasadena, I will recommend Howard Johnson hotel to everybody who goes to this city.

My daughter and I stayed here for a week and so pleased she had chosen this hotel. Price was very reasonable. As we did not have a car we used public transport to go everywhere and this is not a problem. A bus stop to Hollywood is outside your door. The train is 5-7 minutes walk away and you are downtown LA in about 30 minutes. on the Gold Line. This takes you through Union Station which will connect you with all other lines. The area is very quiet and plenty of cheap eateries close by. The room was spacious and very clean, bathroom also spacious, towels changed daily. Breakfast was get it yourself but ok, though the water could be hotter for tea drinkers. The hankerchief size pool was closed when we were there.
Old Pasadena was a delightful place to explore as were the surroundings areas.
If you are using public transport buy a TAP Card available from outside train stations. We got a 7 day pass for $20 which enabled us to use buses and trains...great value. if you do have a car plenty of parking space. Very helpful desk staff.

Had a great stay. I requested a quiet room and was put off the main street and parking lot in a very quiet room. Room was clean and nicely decorated with a very nice, roomy bathroom. The front desk clerk was very nice and helpful. The hotel was easy to get to from the freeway and about a five minute drive to Old Town Pasadena which has great restaurants and shops.
I plan on staying there again the next time I'm in the area.

Room Tip: The street in front is busy, so I suggest requesting a room near the back.

My son & I recently flew into LAX in order to spend a weekend with his two
small children. We found this hotel online and were more than pleased with the
service, cleanliness, and how close it was to everything we needed.

The Manager was very respectful, helpful, and we did not have to wait. We had
arrived earlier than planned, but still there was a room available for us so we were
able to meet our committments on time. The room was very clean and comfortable. We definitely will stay there again. This was our first experience with Howard Johnson.

There is no glam at this hotel which can be best described as a motel as it has the traditional layout of one. The rooms are huge, the bed is king size and comfortable. The room which is not actually attractive to the eye, include a TV, a microwave and a fridge. Wifi is lightning fast but there is no desk, just a regular table. The location is great, on Colorado Ave which is one of Pasadena's main avenues, in a safe area where there are plenty of restaurants and with easy access to the 210 freeway. Staff is courteous as well. And all this for a great rate.

The description says there is a swimming pool but I would not count on it. It is a miniature pool. Breakfast is provided but nothing gourmet. All in all, a great place to rest.

We spent a night here on a weekend getaway. Our room was 3rd floor in the rear and totally quiet. Everything seemed clean and well maintained, and the bathroom was extremely roomy with a large walk-in shower. We ate out, so can't comment on the breakfast. The desk clerk was extremely helpful, let us use his office computer because we left ours at home. The neighborhood is nothing glamorous, but we had no safety worries. The only minor issues might be the exterior halls and the king bed was a little slumpy in the middle. However, at $75 for a king room, no complaints at all.

Room Tip: Look for upper floors in the back to avoid street noise.
