"great maid service"
Best maid service I have ever had! Room was clean beyond what I have ever expected. I am from Las Vegas and know what is outstanding maid service. Wi-Fi never worked and I complained to management several times. Their answer was nobody else is complaining. Too bad management is not as excellent at their job as the maids are with theirs. Very annoying […] to have to go down to office each day for a key that worked. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
I like this hotel, we have stayed here a few time, simple breakfast but good. nice staff. clean roomGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Enough to rest"
This hotel is enough if your plans are being traveling around the city and select a hotel just to sleep. The breakfast is very poor.Genuine Expedia guest review
Property next door is under major construction so lots of noise to put up with. Looks like it will be this way for a long time.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"The best location"
It was great the location was perfect close to ever place we needed to go to. Even though it is on a busy street you would never know it because it was so quiet. The breakfast they serve was great.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Decent Accommodations And Value"
Decent accommodations and value in an overpriced industry. The motel is pretty basic, with no pool, weight room, etc. Continental breakfast was the usual, but nice to have. The location is good, with restaurants and shopping nearby. The motel has outdoor corridors, and as is typical with this design, there was some noise from some rowdy people stomping […] up and down and slamming doors. One person kept running up and down the walkway all night - don't ask me why. They eventually stopped about 4am. In my view, all hotels/motels should have an assistant manager or guard that watches for this sort of thing and throws the offending people out. Rooms are too expensive - and sleep too precious - to put up with this nonsense. The rooms were clean, the staff was nice, and parking was ample. Overall I'd say it was a decent experience and value.

"Close to the beach and reasonable rate"
I enjoyed my stay here.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"i would stay here again"
Room was very clean. Front desk service was excellent. I was unable to maintain an internet connection. Breakfast was very limited.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
The value was more than the price would suggest, it was a true bargain! The area was good and it was a straight shot down to the Redondo pier.i would definitely stay here again! The only complaint I had was jackhammering in the early morning at the construction site directly next doorGenuine Expedia guest review
"Great price, great comfort."
We stayed in the room with 2 king beds on the 2nd floor. We loved the size of the room, even had a small balcony. The carpet feels dirty otherwise it is a clean room. The temperature of the water changes constantly. I hope they fix that.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Better than expected"
It was a very pleasurable 2 day stay. Room was clean and well maintained. Towels etc. were enough for four of us. The location is great and is very close to almost everything, restaurants, stores, car rental etc. Staff was extremely courteous and helpful. Free breakfast was maintained at the same level for entire 3 hours and was very good. 24 hours […] coffee and other amenities was a big plus. During this trip, we stayed in 5 hotels of this class and there is no hesitation in saying that this was the best of them all. I really appreciate the staff for maintaining it so well as such a reasonable price in LA. Thanks. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
Cheap and clean. Would stay here again!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Great place to relax and take care of business!"
I checked in late in the evening and the young lady at the counter was very accommodating and check in was a breeze. Loved the room. Nice and comfy and roomy. Highly recommend for a cost effective quick business trip. Right smack dab in the middle of everything perfect (fast food, sit down restaurants, pharmacy, grocery store and even a WalMart in walking […] distance!) Great stay!

Hotel staff very helpful, shopping and restaurants nearby, spacious room, I will stay there again next time I am in TorranceGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Better than I expected."
You wouldn't expect too much from a small hotel like this. But lots of parking. Rooms were fairly cleaned well. Got to check in early. Nice and quiet. And the beds were actually comfortable. Would I stay again? Yes, if i'm on a budget.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Hotel staff very accommodating. Room very clean and comfortable bed. Definitely will stay here again.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Great for the price"
MY wife and I were looking for something near the Portofino in Redondo beach, but not wanting to pay an arm and a leg. This hotel is slightly dated and rough around the edges, but the staff was very friendly, the bed was comfortable and the neighborhood is nice, it is less then 3 miles from the water, with a lightly used main street for the whole three […] miles. The only complaint we have is there was very little in the way of protein at the Continental Breakfast, but everything at the breakfast was good. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Great Motel, Great Location"
We only stayed for 1 night, but the staff were very friendly, the room was comfortable and the location was convenient. Highly recommended.Genuine Expedia guest review
"A Good Hotel to Stay at Again"
This is a cozy hotel-motel. The beds and mattresses are comfortable. I have stayed at HJ for a couple of times now whenever I am in the Torrance area. Everything is quiet and peaceful, and the rates are very reasonable.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Traveling with teenagers and not enough beds."
Hotel was in fairly good condition. The location was great across the street from the mall. We had a large room with 2 king size beds, real important traveling with 2 teenagers.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Great breakfastGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"need better customer service"
Better customer service and firmer beds.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
it was fine,Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Everything was good... Except the wifi connection. It was almost.non-existent! Great for a short trip!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Needs maintenance and/or updating"
didn't have much interaction with staff, but what I did have was kind of cold. The bathroom had broken or cracked floor tiles and missing grout, but was stocked well. Small things like the mats outside the elevator doors that needed replacing are so easy to fix. Housekeepers like to watch TV while cleaning your room, as witnessed by the channel being […] changed to novellas. The location was what we booked for, not necessarily a luxury vacation.

"Not as good as other Howard Johnson i stayed at"
Breakfast time starts from 7 AM, and it will take another 20 - 30 mins for them to setup everything and no hot breakfast, so if you have a morning flight to catch from LA and planning to have breakfast at hotel then keep this point in mind. Also, i booked 1 room with two beds, however by the time i arrived they said something messed up in the system […] (just an excuse i think) and they gave me two different rooms.

"Nice hotel for a night of fun"
Can't complain. Served its purpose for what was needed.Genuine Expedia guest review
Near where I needed to be and much less expensive than alternatives. Breakfast is fine and the staff is very attentive and effective. I've stayed here several times and will continue to do so.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"close to alot of good dining restaurants"
Would stay at Howard Johnson Torrance again. Very pleasant and helpful front desk staff.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"It is okay, close to everything."
It started okay with the people cleaning really okay. They cleaned the room. On my last night, I noticed my alarm clock was missing. I did not report right away since I am not sure if I already put it in my suitcase. When I got home and unloaded my suitcase, it was not there. Why of all things, it is a very inexpensive clock although I have had it for […] years. How can they do that. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Great for our 2 night stay to visit family."
Fast easy check in. Room was ready for us. Clean, etc.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Nice, very accesible"
Breakfast could be better and the internet was a bit slow and it fell now and then, but overall the hotel was very good!!!Genuine Expedia guest review
"Howard Johnson - Torrance"
From boiled coffee residue on the coffee maker, torn bed skirt, plus dings and marks in the shower I doubt I will ever stay at this property again.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Good for price"
Comfortable but could use a little updating. Lamp shades are worn.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Very convenient location!"
The location is very central to Torrance and surroundings. Restaurants, etc. within easy walking distance. Very good place to choose for this reason.Genuine Expedia guest review
Paper thin wallsGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Very Good location for beach area."
Older hotel, but maintained very well, Rooms set up well with flat screen, fridge, microwave. Wi-Fi is awful. Breakfast is coffee and cheap tasteless pastries. Nice covered parking. Convenient to everything.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"would not go there again"
Rooms have smell of smoke (non-smoking hotel), noisy street (was not able to sleep at night), beds, blankets and pillows are very old and uncomfortable. Water in the shower hardly dripping. Breakfast: cereal, bagles and coffee, if you need cream-cheese or creamer you have to ask for it and wait for 3 minutes. Would not stay there again.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
The hotel room was booked a very long time ago; at time of check in the hotel staff said that the room we requested was under repairs (the bathroom had a big Hole); However, since they did not have any other room with 2 beds, they requested us to stay for one night in that room and they would NOT charge us for the room and next day they would shift […] us to another room. They did shift us to a better room the next day; but the front desk was unable to give me a copy of the receipt showing the CREDIT for one night. Please confirm. We have stayed in this hotel previously and that is why we were back Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"You get what you pay for"
This place was an inexpensive way to stay in Torrance for a couple of days. Nothing was spectacular, nothing was terrible. Two words- "good enough"Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Great location, good value (through Expedia)"
I stay at this HoJo when I'm in Torrance on family business....it's close to them, and also great restaurants, markets, theaters, etc. I stay on the third floor in the back, and it's pretty quiet. Next door is an Extended Stay hotel, and sometimes groups of guests can be a little noisy on the large patio space there, but that's rare. Great flat screen […] in front of the bed, coffee maker, microwave and fridge let me eat in the room rather than an expensive restaurant.....I also tell housekeeping to leave my room alone, and they respect that, but also are very attentive when I need shampoo or coffee. Computer in office let's me print out boarding pass. The king bed has LOTS of good pillows, not down but something really plump and cushy. Decent bathroom (fl. lighting is always unflattering), abundant hot water. The only glitch.....my room "key" cards often do not work, and I have to trudge all the way downstairs to have new ones made....they need to get their act together on this, it's not rocket science. But I do recommend this place, probably the best value for money in the neighborhood Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Hojo perfect for our needs"
We enjoyed our stay at this Howard Johnson. Our room was spacious and even had a walk-in-closet large enough to put the baby's crib in so he could sleep somewhere dark with a door. They were polite at check in and check out. For the price and location, we were well pleased! We were attending a conference at a hotel across the street and paid half of […] what we would have paid for a room there. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"One night in Torrance"
Had some noisy neighbors around 0230 that carried on until about 0330 but the facility had nothing to do with these chatty Cathys, the hotel was fine and the free breakfast was tasty.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Please don't advertise wifi if you don't have wifi ! ! ! They technically have it, but only enough for you to check your email--if you have 10 mins. while it loads.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Nice, would stay again. Needed King size bed"
Enjoyed my stay. Could have had more breakfast items to choose from. Overall rated "B"Genuine Expedia guest review
The elevator has no sensor, so you have all of 2 seconds to get into that elevator, otherwise it will close on you. It takes no prisoners. You'll have to keep that "door open" button pressed to buy yourself time. Building is rickety. Breakfast was just packaged pastries & your regular coffee & juices.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Previous reviews are so wrong"
When booking our Hotel for our vacation I read a lot of reviews. There were several reviews for this location that were more than wrong. We found the service to be top notch. The location was wonderful, surrounded by great restaurants and any shopping needed.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Hotel staff very nice and very helpful. Efficient and friendly place, close to several restaurants.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
I wish breakfast had been served earlier. We had to leave by 7:00 and missed breakfast.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
