"Ok for the price"
Yeah, if I didn't have much money, this would be okay, but it is certainly not a place I'd stay on vacation or send an out of town guest there. Worst part of these "motels" is that you cannot have the curtains open, or the people walking by going to and from their rooms can look right into your room, and there is just one window. The breakfast was all […] carbs (waffles, pastries), if you like that. They really need to add eggs and yogurt. I liked that the breakfast room was open until 10am every day.

"Economical and peaceful"
Its good hotel in the middle of torrance. Free breakfast was good and had many choices.everything was good except elevator its little slow and old but working.Genuine Expedia guest review
This hotel is excellent value for money. The hotel is in close vacinity to LA airport. It has a large range of shops, and shopping mall, in close walking distance. The staff extremely friendly. The room was clean, comfortable, and very quiet. Will stay here again.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Good Hotel For The Price"
We enjoyed our stay at the Howard Johnson. Customer service was great. The rooms were clean. House keeping did a great job everyday we were here. We stayed for a week. If you want a good place to stay for a low price and in a safe neighborhood, then this is the hotel for you. We will stay here again on our next trip.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Although this hotel is aging, it is very well maintained and staff especially the housekeeping works very hard and very friendly. My wife and I were very pleased overall and will stay there againGenuine Expedia guest review
"Don't let the pictures fool you"
To be fair we never actually stayed here. We booked two nights (non-refundable booking). The location is terrible and the hotel from the outside looks horribly run-down (nothing like the pictures they show). We asked if we could check in at 1:45 but was told the room wasn't ready. We decided not to go back and ended up staying somewhere else. Seriously, […] spend another $40 per night and stay somewhere nice, this place (at least in terms of location and exterior appearance) is awful. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Hotel was conveniently located near the hospital."
The staff was friendly and helpful. The hotel was very near Little Company of Mary Hospital in Torrance. I received good value for the price.Genuine Expedia guest review
Hotel is a little out datedGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"close to LAX and sights we want to see"
It was fineGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Excellent staff, comfortable room."
We only stayed one night, but I would have gladly stayed longer. The staff were extremely helpful and accommodating, getting us in early and holding our luggage since we were leaving later in the evening. The room was great with plenty of room and a very comfortable bed.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Star rating correct-only average hotel"
The staff was sufficiently friendly and accommodating. It was a holiday weekend, so the place was completely full. Pretty typical Howard Johnson hotel - pretty sterile exterior - block hotel with doors all outside. Building has been around a longer time - some renovation evident. Continental breakfast was quite adequate. W-fi only good (but weak/slow) […] for computer - not for tablet or phone. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Close to everything!"
Will always go back!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Mostly what i expected"
Really great value with a few issues. The bathroom door handle is backwards (lock on the outside), the Wi-Fi is really weak in the Suites because they are furthest from the office. Difficult to get connected but adequate once you get it running. Not sure I'd try to stream a Netflix, although I'm going to try... Oh they have a breakfast room which is […] really popular with the guests from 7-10am daily. Coffee, bagels and cream cheese, toast, an honest to goodness waffle maker that works beautifully (with all the waffle fixings), oranges and apples, juice, 4 kinds of cereal and milk, and packets of oatmeal. TV and lots of tables to sit at while having breakfast. This breakfast room the best surprise of the visit. All in all, well done for a reasonable room. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Great place to stay. Good location."
This is my fourth year to stay at this hotel over the labor day holiday. It is a very good hotel and they now have a computer. I like the location for restaurants and movies, etc and getting to freeways.Genuine Expedia guest review
Excellent price and good value. I couldn't expect everything but it was good for a budget hotel. The room was large and clean. The bed was large as well, but the mattress was not the most comfortable. I could tell it was an older mattress and could use an upgrade, but no problems sleeping on it. The walls were thin and I could hear when people walked […] by but I didn't have loud neighbors. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
Great hotel everything was clean and amazing only the coffee machine did not work. Also in the cafeteria it smelled not so good.Genuine Expedia guest review
"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.

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

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.
