Price for me was $99 from Travelocity but you could get it cheaper by booking direct through the hotel website (figured that out afterward) Pros: The Staff is excellent at the front desk for check in and check...they do a great job Cons: (no particular order) 1. No soap in room (had to call down for that) and shower wash cloth hanger not in shower (Staff brought it up when I called-which was great) 2. Shower head does not swivel and water pressure in shower is unable to be lowered 3. TV- blue vertical line running down TV indicating it's broken since it's older 4. Breakfast....THE worst I've ever had - frozen burrito from pack of 20 from store and an apple which was bigger than the burrito even. P.S. burrito dries out in the microwave when heated up 5. Noise - you'll have plenty of street noise/lot noise and walkway noise permeating your zzzz attempts 6. Might see a drug deal going down in the parking area like I did when I arrived; but since I'm from the hood; no biggie for me (they plan on charging for parking so that should dissipate soon) All in all, an alright budget place to stay in Pasadena during a pandemic

The woman who checked us in seemed to hate her life very much, not friendly at all even though we kept trying to get her to lighten up a bit. The young man the next night was great though!! Maybe get some music for the front desk, seemed depressing there and the woman working there isn’t happy.

The motel was located on the 110 highway going thru pasadena. Mostly quiet all night, traffic around 530 am would wake one up.

Quiet and convenient motel in Pasadena

Pros: It was very convenient for us to visit our son who shares a condo in Pasadena and it was a decent price.
Cons: The continental breakfast was very limited... packaged rolls, fruit, juice, cereal, coffee, and tea.
Location: Easy access to the west and south: LA, Dodger stadium, Hollywood, etc. It is a short drive to the Rose Bowl, JPL, Old Pasadena, and more.
The staff was very friendly and helpful. The configuration of the motel seems secure, as all doors face the center of the property, where the parking and pool are located. The room and beds were comfortable and the motel was quiet. It worked great for our visit, in which we spent several days exploring the LA area and visiting our son who lives and works in Pasadena.

Thank you for taking the time to share your in-depth review and choosing our hotel as your home away from home while visiting your son. Our team works hard and I'm so pleased to see that we met your needs across all outlets - rooms, staff and location. While we realize breakfast is an important meal to get your day started, we will soon be updating the selection of items we offer to include a variety of hot options as well. I hope you have the opportunity to stay with us again and experience our new breakfast menu on your next visit to see your son. Thank you for your review.

Not bad location for Rose Parade

Pros: The room was fine, clean, and comfortable.
Cons: Breakfast could be expanded.
Location: Nice Whole Foods store across street, where we got some healthy snacks/drinks not available in the hotel. Walking distance from Old Pasadena, Paseo.
Stayed a week to attend the Rose Parade. Kind of pricey around New Years but not out of line with other hotels in area for same time. Our room on 3rd floor was decent, clean, comfortable. Could have used a second chair in the room. Did not try the on-site restaurant as it seemed very sparsely attended. The continental breakfast was ok for a morning snack but was not extensive. We enjoyed our trip and the hotel was fine for our purposes

Excellent location. Friendly and helpful staff.

Pros: Location. Visiting a patient in the Huntington Hospital area.
Cons: Breakfast.The only disappointing feature was the complimentary breakfast which was one of the amenities that made me choose this hotel BUT the breakf
Location: Good restaurants and shops nearby in the Union and Colorado areas. Close to city hall. Close to Huntington hospital.
This hotel location was perfect for my needs. I stayed 6 days. The room was spacious and clean. The staff was very helpful and friendly. The good news is, this hotel is within walking distance (less than a block) from WHOLE FOODS and not far from Trader Joe's. And there is a fridge and microwave in the room.
