Terrible motel

Pros: Free wifi and free parking.
Cons: All the motel needs a reform. Dirty, noisy and we need more amenities.
It is dirty, noisy and urgently needs a reform. The room smelled and the carpet was very dirty. The air conditioning did not work very well. There were no hangers. It is far from everything (only has a freeway next to it) and has no amenity (only towels, TV, parking and free wifi). No breakfast, no coffe maker no bath gel. Very few plugs and poorly positioned. Avoid it!

Not what it is advertised

This hotel was ok but not enough parking spaces and very small. We did not get tv signal until the last day of our stay. We requested 2 queen beds but they were full beds instead. Furthermore, when I book it it says that check out is at 11 but the staff told us is at 10 and the site adverstise it wrong. They supposed to clean the room while we were gone but they only make the beds. I will never stay in this hotel anymore or recommended, bad experience and not good customer service from the younger Indian guy. The older Indian guy was a bit more considered as he offer us water for our trip.

Be Wary

Pros: It was cheaper than many of the other options.
Cons: Too many things to fit in 150 characters.
Location: It's off the freeway (luckily AC drowns out that noise) and a short drive from downtown Pasadena, which is it's saving grace.
Tough to review because there isn't anything that was a red flag but overall it was "ehhh...." Some rooms have microwaves/mini-frig but not all and Travelocity doesn't make it clear you must request those items. If they are out of those rooms, tough luck. For a cheaper rate, this room would have been fine but I had just paid for a hotel near Anaheim that was half-the-rate and gorgeous in comparison. It's like going out on a date with someone who is trying too hard to cover up their imperfections. If they had been up front about them I wouldn't have been disappointed. Do yourself a favor, if it's a difference of 5 or 10 a night, seriously consider it.

My 3'rd time staying at the Lincoln Motel

Reliably decent place, reasonably clean, friendly family management. Nice hand painted murals throughout. Quiet neighborhood, though right next to freeway. Walking distance to beautiful Rose Bowl Park golf course. Good TV fridge Microwave. One drawback: poor florescent lighting. Could use a couple lamps with warm color bulbs.

Washcloth, Towel, Floor Mat

Pros: The rate
Cons: See experience.
Location: Old Pasadena is great.
If you stay at this motel please remember to bring a washcloth, towels, and bathroom floor mat. They did not supply a washcloth. There was no mat for the floor in the bathroom and the floor is very slippery when wet. And the towels are for a person of about 4 feet in height. The bed is very firm, so if you do not like a firm bed I would not recommend this motel. It was a good price and served my purpose so I would stay here again but would bring my own towel, washcloth, and would use the towels provide for the floor mat.

Vehicles

Pros: Nothing , it was totally unfriendly and if I had the energy after a long drive would have found somewhere else but as only one night suffered it
Cons: Total redecoration of site and Internet details to reflect actual decor Refurb rooms
Location: 500 feet from freeway and in busy cross roads constant traffic noise Parking area tight to access Only run down supermarket nearby no other shops
Not as described on Internet, 500 feet from interstate highway and busy road junctions. Room and corridors painted in Asian pictures of India Room 124 sparce no bed side cabinets and horrible colours Due to road noise unable to get a good nights sleep Heater was broken and staff unable to fix so had to search and find an additional blanket as only I sheet and very thin bed cover.

Convenient to Pasadena, not a typical motel

Pros: Not much!
Cons: See above
Location: Near Pasadena, Rose Bowl
No continental breakfast. Very nice HDTV, but TV reception was terrible-snowy, distorted. No Kleenix-like tissue. No hand towels or wash cloths. No clock/radio. Limited parking. Sink and bathroom very nice. Microwave oven and refrigerator provided. Clean. Price a bit lower than chain motels.

Not a family friendly hotel

If you are looking for a place to stay this is not it. I have a 9month old child who I had to confined to  the bed because the floor was nasty, no hot water, phone did not work, no iron, face towels and ect. If you are single and would like to stay close to the Rose Bowl Stadium than its convenient.
