"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

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
"Needed a hotel close to hospital"
Average hotel, good breakfast and wifi service, overall clean rooms, free parking, bldg and parking areas needed some maintenance and cleaningGenuine Expedia guest review

"Howard Johnson's Hotel - Torrance, CA"
I found the Howard Johnson's hotel in the city of Torrance to have well-furnished and well-supplied guest rooms. The bathrooms have coffee-makers and coffee. The bathroom towels are thick. The bed and chairs were comfortable. The rooms are also supplied with ironing boards and irons, small refrigerators, small microwave ovens, and small combination […] safes in the closets as well as flat-screen TVs, phones, and of course, Wi-Fi is included. The air conditioning and heating unit worked well. Usually rooms that are as well-stocked as these in other hotel chains elsewhere in the Los Angeles area cost a lot more, but the Torrance Howard Johnson's hotel I found to be a good deal, and the roomy guest rooms a pleasant surprise, so I will definitely return if I am back in the South Bay area again. The hotel is also right on Torrance Blvd., close to the main corridor of Hawthorne Blvd., and very close to shops, stores, the Del Amo Fashion Square shopping center, and to the Torrance Civic Center. This was a quiet hotel in which guests can get a good night's sleep. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"BY TORRANCE MEMORIAL HOSPITAL"
SLEPT GOOD . GOOD FOOD DELIVERYGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"very good location"
everything was comfortable just that the internet connection wasnt very good. also... i stayed 12nights... and there is a promotion that if you stayed more than 10nights you will receive one free night as refund,.... how that works?Genuine Hotels.com guest review
The room.was in a safe area and close to where I needed to be.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"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

"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
