The place has been shut down for a while since the fire caused major damage. The hotel is across the street from Alhambra Hospital. From the look of things I don't think its ever going to reopen. There are many restaurants walking distance from the hotel, the property is located a half block away from Main Street.

After being laid off, I moved into the Raymond Hotel for four weeks. The manager, Bruce and his dedicated housekeeper Terri make sure that every guest has a clean room, towels, sheets and accommodate every reasonable request. Each room has private refridgerators and sinks as well as flat screen TVs with free cable services and wireless internet. In addition, guests... More

Great little boutique hotel in Alhambra which is a much better place to stay than downtown or even WEHO! Bruce the manager was amazingly friendly, accommodating & helpful. The hotel as a whole is very unique & the furniture is brand new. A personal touch with the mini fridge & extremely clean and organized. Exterminators arrive weekly on Thursdays and... More

I am in the process of moving to LA and have been house sitting while I search for a home. However, during a week for which I had no house sitting gig, I booked a room at the Raymond. I ended up staying for over a week, returned a few weeks later when I had another hole in my house... More

I truly enjoyed my stay at the Raymond Hotel. It was a midway station between the home i have now and the RAT TRAP that i lived in before that. Desperate, Lonely, NOT WELL, the Raymond provided me with rest, privacy and i forged friendships that i believe will last forever. Cudos to Bruce the new manager who kept it... More

At first I was sceptical because of the low price. The rooms are a good size and were clean. Housekeeping does a good job everyday, the atmosphere is relaxed and friendly. Unexpectedly pleasant.

This hotel, unfortunately, has bed bugs as of April 2009. If not for that, it would otherwise have been a fine experience. If they are able to fix the problem, I would recommend them. But the one-star review is for the weeks of bites following our stay and the anxiety of having possibly brought them home.

I have to admit that I was a little frightened before arriving at this place based on nothing more than my prejudice over how cheap it was. I was pleasantly surprised by how clean and quiet it was. It is definitely not a Radisson but for the price, it is an extremely good value. It is located on a quiet... More
