"3 nights in Torrance"
We were pretty comfortable there and it was close enough to everything we wanted to see and do. Shower, a little low but it got the job done.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"close to everything"
I grew up in the bay area and been back but this is the first time got a good deal in a location close to all shopping, restaurants, fast food and sights to see. Stayed 4 nights walked a lot and saw things that you miss in the car. Staff very nice and breakfast till 10am great. thanks.Genuine Hotels.com guest review

"Fantastic place to stay!!!!!"
Upon arrival staff was courteous and very friendly. Easy check in process. The room was second floor first room. It seemed to be a monster suite with really nice beds and huge walk in closet area. Lover the room was very clean.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Great place and affordable!"
This is the 6th time we stay at this specific HOJO and we love it. The staff is awesome. The power went out in my room, I called front desk and they had it fixed in about 2 minutes. The location is great too. Very close to hermosa beach!Genuine Expedia guest review
Always get stuck in handicapped room with no tub. Shower not clean doesn't drain well.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
The beds were a real king size which was nice. The fridge was very cool. The breakfast room was very small but kept well stocked. The staff was friendly and helpful. It is very conveniently located and the shopping and restaurants in the area were great!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Good stay. Nice front desk. Nice balcony. Good area near the beach and lots of malls and restaurants.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Great location, good price, clean room, good staff"
The Marriott across the street was booked and we wanted to stay in a safe area while in LA.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Worth the price"
Breakfast was poor and always busy. The breakfast area is simply too small. However, it worth the price if you want to visit the city and not a hotel room.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
The HoJo's we stayed at was just OK. Nothing spectacular. The hotel looked like a dump. The surrounding neighborhood was fair. However, the service was good, beginning with the front desk clerk. Although there wasn't any problems, I have to admit I kept my door locked with the hatch on. Overall, I'm not sure I'd stay there again. But you could do w […] orse.

"Good for the price"
For the amenities you get with the price, the overall experience was good. Breakfast was not bad. It had all the right items for a Continental style. however, I have a couple of gripes: 1) the poor internet service, which I hope will improve soon, and 2) equipment noise. The mini fridge is rather noisy, so if you are a iight sleeper, this might bug […] you. But overall, the area was nice and quiet, and I would come again if the price is right.

"pleasant 2 nite stay"
Clean room, good service, reasonableGenuine Hotels.com guest review
The rooms were updated, clean and close to shopping and the beaches.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Close to the beach, OK for the priceGenuine Hotels.com guest review
It was a nice hotel to just sleep. Price is good and easy breakfast is included.Genuine Expedia guest review
Very satisfied - very good value, will stay there upon return visit.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Staff was very nice, they were very friendly. Only the thing i had missed in my trip was the discount at the hotel, initially i had booked the hotel through hotels.com with 70 $ per night and for 2 days i had extended directly from the hotel i had paid 100 $ for it :(. Hotel for the price very nice. I would recommend this hotel.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
I was very pleased with the hotel , Everything was clean the beds were very comfortable! I would stay at this hotel again when I am in TorranceGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Easy access to hotel and airport"
quality of staff was excellent. i had no problems, questions or any negatives for the stay so i enjoyed everything.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Nice and tidy"
beside the internet connection (that wasn't working at all) everything was very nice and cleanGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Clean and Comfortable"
The hotel was very clean and comfortable. It was obviously an older building (with a very slow elevator), but the rooms had been fixed up and were kept in good condition. It was a nice breakfast that they offered and the employees were all friendly. The only comment I have is that the housekeeping seemed to start very early - they were usually cleaning […] the rooms around me by 9 AM. If you want to sleep in, definitely put out the do not disturb sign. They did seem to do another round later in the day. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"I had no problems with this hotel."
I had no problems with this hotel. It's not a 5 star hotel, but it doesn't have a 5 star price either. If you are expecting a cost effective decent place to stay, then this is a great choice.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Nice quiet location"
Good price and location. Very close to the Japanese stores and such that are not common in Northern California. 2 king beds really means 2 king beds and they are huge. Room is not the most up to date but for the price I wouldn't expect it to be. Great service, the guy who checked me in actually read my request when I booked online to get a top floor […] room.

It was restful...just what I needed. And convenient to commercial stores that interested me.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Clean, quiet nice hotel and within our budget."
Had an emergency in LA and found this hotel on Expedia and it was within our budget. It was nice, very clean and the hotel employees were friendly.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Taking a chance..."
Staying at any HO-JO is a game of chance. I've stayed in several HO-JOs all over the country and it's never the staffs fault for what condition the room is in beyond the washables. The room I stayed in at the Torrence location looked like a combination of meth house and porn studio. The staff was friendly and helped me check in with no problems what […] so ever, but this particular location is in need (if all the rooms mimic this one) of a major overhaul.

"2nd time not as good"
I was here two weeks ago, and the room you stay in makes all the difference! I checked in early this time and was given a room right next to the elevator - noisy! It was also the room modified for those with physical challenges, so although it was super roomy, the bed was saggy and there was a slight smell to the room. I will definitely stay here again, […] as it served my purpose (sleep) and was very reasonable. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Pretty good value for the area; however..."
Good location, clean, comfortable room. Internet did not work at all. No cable TV except 3 news stations. Only ice machine not working for 2 of 4 days. Staff competent, friendly. Building could use some maintenance and repairs. Liked parking area and no ground floor rooms added to safety.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Great Hotel in Torrance, CA"
I give Howard Johnson in Torrance a 5, not because it is a 5-star hotel, but because it is a great hotel at a reasonable price. Very nice staff, clean, great location off Hawthorne, near the beach, short walk to restaurants and supermarket, and easy access into downtown LA via local bus service.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Overnight Stay Analysis"
Overall Very Good, No Real Complaints.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Great for what I needed"
I was in Torrance to attend a Kings game that night in L.A. My only two minor negatives about my stay were a: The front desk clerk at noon was not at ALL compliant or helpful in my desire to check in before 3pm. He merely pointed to the sign and said "3:00 pm". I don't expect to get what I want at all times, but he didn't even look in the computer to […] check on the hotel's status. Now, Sarah, who came on afterwards, was AWESOME. She helped me with everything I needed, including a coffee pot that I couldn't get to work. b: the bed was a little flimsy, but if I slept right in the middle it was very comfy.

"Best for the price!!"
The breakfast room could have been cleaner and the "continental" Breakfast was ok. I've had better but I keep thinking for the price we paid I really can't complain.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Torrance CA Trip"
Room smelled, bathroom had mold, cracked/broken tub, leaking sink, holes patched but not finished. Awful breakfast food. Would not ever recommend this place. Located near a mall. Receptionist was helpful and friendly. Not worth the price.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Close to work"
I got very sick while staying. Staff was great helping me find a doctor.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Hotel was Very nice and good staff good location we likedGenuine Expedia guest review
Friendly staff and just a nice little hotel. Farthest room doesn't get great wifi, so if you need it you may need to be closer to the center.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
GOOD HOTEL, CLEAN, I REALLY LIKE THIS HOTELGenuine Hotels.com guest review
Was very nice , roomy , quiet, comfy bed, and all the amenities u need, plus continental breakfast. Would definitely stay there againGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"near our family gathering"
Very nice accommodations and fairly quiet for being on a busy street. I just wish you were pet friendly as I don't feel safe traveling without my dog.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
The hotel in nicely situated close to freeway 405. There are a lot of parking spaces and the hotel staff are friendly and professional and nicely dressed too. The hotel rooms are of a good size and very clean. The fridge inside the room is a good size and the bed is very comfortable and linens are clean. There are also enough pillows in the bed and […] even the cover sheet looks and feels clean. The hairdryer is new and clean and the bathroom is clean as well. The only 2 things maybe that could be improved would be the water pressure and if they can put at least 2 sets of soap and shampoo in the room. Overall though, it was really a very pleasant stay.

"Great bang for your buck!"
For the price I wasn't expecting the hotel to be as good as it was. The room was clean. It's in a perfect location close to great restaurants and grocery store. We just needed a place to sleep, so I was pleasantly surprised when there was a fridge and microwave! If you're wanting something inexpensive and clean I would stay here!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Wi-fi never worked. Excuses for not working were ridiculous. Like the guy who fixes it has been on vacation since X-mas. Really? Get someone else to fix it. Rooms need to be remodeled/updated.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
It is very different from pictures on online. There is no convinience for visitors. The building is very old. The space is very narrow. The surrounding is not good. The condition of the building is not good.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Front desk staff not helpful at all ."
Checked in at 10 pm 12/26/2012. Heater did not work .Called desk and the gentleman from the desk came up to try and fix it. He couldn't fix it and told us that maintenance man will be in the next day .We went out the next day and returned late. Heater was not fixed . Called the front desk and the problem was not logged in . Heater was fixed on the last […] day of our stay . Also "free wi-Fi " did not work . Will not stay at this Brand of hotel or its affiliates .

quite different to other howard johnson hotels but fair to stay if you just need a sleep and the location is good, many restaurants around and very closer to del amo shopping center.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Comfortable, Clean, Zero Wi Fi"
The hotel is sufficiently clean, comfortable, but they have yet to care about and fix the Wifi problem. The Wi Fi does not work in the third floor rooms and staff knows of the problem and are complacent, like "oh well if you want the free Wi Fi" advertised for the rooms "come to the lobby and do your work". Over all a good place to sleep if you don't […] need your computer. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
