Reviewed yesterday NEW

Considering the location next to a busy street; it was relatively quiet and peaceful. The hotel room was comfortable and the bed was excellent. This is important because I do have back problems. The staff were knowledgable and eager to assist me.

Do not enter the guest rooms without their permission. Do not allow people smoking in the rooms or do not lie that the rooms are non-smoking, do not spray carpets with air fresheners, that is not a solution, it is a band aid, fix the curtains and make sure guests have privacy.

Dear Guest, It is truly unfortunate to hear that you did not have a pleasant stay with us. We take guest room security and cleanliness very seriously, and it saddens me that your privacy was intruded upon during your stay. I will have a meeting with our staff and get to the bottom of what transpired. Also, we do enforce...

The rooms were spotless and extra comfy parking was free which is unusual in Pasadena. The Continental breakfast was outstanding and many dish choices.....definitely...

From the exterior it may look old, but once you get in the room it is clean, looks new as well. I had an uncomfortable bed and some really awful pillows. The temperature of the room was also off, with the a/c on it was nice but for a prolonged period it would be cold and with it off it...

This is a very good low-frills hotel in a great location. Many rooms are currently under renovation. The completed ones are very nice. The breakfast is very good. It is a good value for the Los Angeles area. The pool is small. The desk staff members were helpful and efficient.

For what is essentially a motel, the rooms are very well designed and furnished. The details are well manicured and the staff was very pleasant. My only note is that the trendy sliding door to the bathroom not only doesn't lock, it doesn't really fully close. So, it provides little privacy, if that is a concern. Otherwise, I was surprised...

We would. It stay at this Hotel again, nor refer anyone to it! It is old, dingy and has a foul odor. The elevators have graffiti in them and the carport is filled w/ cockroaches. Def not worth the value.

Good location, friendly staff and comfortable stay. I would recommended it and stay there again. I'm disappointed that they changed their pet policy after their remodeling. I would have liked to have stayed their with my family and our dog, but we had to make other arrangements.

Nice front office staff but ongoing renovations went 7 days a week. Pillows were​ lumpy and uncomfortable. Medicine went missing after room cleaning with no management follow up despite report of the same and internet was weak and spotty.

I was very surprised how nice my room was. When I saw the outside of the building it was not what I expected. Too my surprise the room was very nice. The bed was comfortable and the bathroom was done very nicely. The price was good and the AAA discount was even better. I will definitely return to this location....
