Nice basic hotel ”

My boyfriend and I were spending a casual weekend in LA and specifically looking for a hotel in Koreatown. The JJ Grand was a good choice and we enjoyed our stay there. The rates are very reasonable and the location was great. The property itself is fine and we found the room to be clean with a very comfortable bed! We would gladly recommend the JJ Grand if you’re looking for a standard hotel with friendly, accommodating service.

Expect a Solid Stay!”

I stayed here over the weekend on business, and though it appears to be an older property, it's pleasant, well-maintained, and operated by an attentive, pleasant, accommodating staff. It's, of course, in LA's Koreatown--virtually surrounded by nice eateries. If you're a serious sushi lover, please, try to contain yourself; there's a spot, literally, on every corner. The room was clean and comfortable (nice bed and bathroom), though some of its mounted artwork could use some serious updating -- but please don't let this minor thing deter you from experiencing the JJ Grand. It's worth it. I would do it again. In fact, I'd even look forward to it!

Good value for money”

Considerably cheaper than other LA hotels when booked in advance. I was a little worried after reading reviews about the hotel not honoring Agoda prices/bookings, but I suppose there is a risk of overbooking with all third party hotel sites. Certainly old (and "grand" in the past), but everything is still reasonably maintained. Large room. Comfortable bed. Working air-conditioning / heating. Lighting is a little dim. Have to get out of bed to turn the lights off. Good location in Koreatown, and close to public transport (purple line metro and buses). Friendly staff. Would not hesitate to stay again.

Korea Town area”

Given most of the hotels were 30% more expensive then JJ Grand it was worth a one night stay in LA. They could use an update to the interior, wallpaper, furniture but if that happens i guess the prices would go up. Over all i would recommend JJ Grand if you dont want to spend a lot of money and sleep in a comfortable bed. Staff was very nice.

Comfy Convenient & Economical”

The JJ Grand is a 2 minute walk to Wilshire Blvd. Convenient for transport, restaurants, cafes & food vans and banks. Our Twin room was a good size with very comfy beds a handy mini fridge, coffee machine, dining table and television. A large sized bathroom with shower over bath (Clean but not Immaculate). We had a view of the Hollywood sign in the distance. Staff where friendly, helpful and happy to store our luggage upon our early arrival until check in time. The foyer was dated grand yet still nice, with convenient vending machines for all hours snacks & drinks. We would recommend the JJ Grand to Savvy Non Plussed Family Travellers & Couples.

Wonderful, clean hotel with great staff”

The hotel was very clean. My friend and I were pleased with our stay. Room was cleaned every day and staff came right away if we needed anything. Room air/heat works well. Shower had great pressure and very hot. Unfortunately, I didn't get a chance to try their restaurants and cafe. I read other reviews complaining about the wallpaper, but as for me I see no problem. This is a Korean operated hotel, not Trump towers or a chain hotel. If you are expecting stone walls instead of wallpaper in the hallways, then this isn't for you. Nevertheless, I enjoyed my stay and will most definitely come back.

Good location, affordable price, & FREE (valet) parking on premise”

It is impossible to find cheap/free parking in LA hotel. JJ Grand is great in terms of free parking and K-town location. However, bathroom (our room was 412) needs to be cleaned more thoroughly. Our bathtub had mysterious hairs in it and restroom floor had some pubic hair on it too. And those hairs were not mine for sure :)

Yeah some parts of the hotel seems old but once you get in the room, it’s great! No need to worry if this is a good deal for you!

Better than a Motel 6”

My stay at the JJ Grand Hotel was not exactly a 5-star experience... While the lobby presented as decent looking, the moment you step into the elevator, you can see the work that needs to be done on this hotel. With cracking walls in the hallways, a broken elevator button, and rust in the bathtub, the place shows as very old and worn, and not in a positive way. I could hear the water running in my neighbor's rooms and I'm glad I was at an end because voices passed right through the door. I never felt unsafe in the hotel,, which is always a positive note. I was disappointed in the complimentary toiletries. The staff, I must give mixed reviews, as I had to add a day to my stay, which required me to make a separate booking, and when I first checked-in, I asked if I could stay in the same room, and was told no, but with a different staff member, on the day I went to check-out, she kindly told me I could. By that point, I had already packed, so that was quite frustrating. A 2-star stay.

Horrible Experience. Do Not Book.”

I booked a night at JJ Grand Hotel through Agoda.com and it was a nightmare. Upon my arriva, I was told my reservation had been canceled-even though I had a reservation number and a receipt. I tried contacting Agoda 24/7 Customer Service but received no response. At this point I was hoping the front desk representative at JJ Grand Hotel would honor the price but he never did. I have worked high-end retail and I know what Customer Service means, clearly this is not the case at JJ Grand Hotel. I am very disappointed and would not recommend anybody stay at JJ Grand Hotel.
