The previous Motel 6 we stayed in was basic and dated. This one had been well redesigned and had a boutique feel. It has a good location opposite the Santa Anita Racetrack. The room are not big, but adequate. The bathroom was good. Reception staff were helpful. No breakfast provided.

We were a bit stranded due to mechanical problems - and during the time it took to (a) find a mechanic with a tow truck and (b) try and wait for his (very busy schedule.) This Motel 6 allowed us to keep the room beyond check out time in order that we would be comfortable as we waited. We asked... More

Rooms and cleanliness are about standard for a motel 6. The location is ok but what makes this motel particularly bad is the staff. This hotel's "policies" are different from their corporate ones and... they change depending on the staff member. Manager is rude, borderline aggressive not interested in building return business.

Stayed here one night and moved to different hotel. Very loud, kids running around till late at night and noisy patriots all over the place. Rooms are very small, shower water pressure non existent. Would not recommend to anyone.

I spent there one night when staying (mostly) in Pasadena. It's a short drive from Pasadena, but worth it since it's much cheaper than anything in the neighboring city. Overall I had a good experience; te check-in was fast, I had no problems with the rom which was clean and tidy.

Chose this MOTEL-6 because of it's location for the BREEDERS' CUP @ Santa Anita across the street .. .. For the races, this location is unmatched as the entrance (through the infield) is just across the street - You can just chip a golfball from dour room to the entrance gate!! UNMATCHED LOCATION FOR SANTA ANITA RACETRACK!!! Keep in mind,... More

Check in was good. Motel room was very small, but that is to be expected. Location was great, right across the street from the racetrack. Just an FYI, the peacocks that roam the neighborhood in the morning can be quite loud.

None smoking room that smelled of smoke. Went to grandfathers funeral smelling of cigarettes and none of us smoke. No pets allowed but had some kind of animal hair all over the beds and floor. We all suffered with allergies the next day. Made reservations in advance and had 2 towels that looked more like hand towels for 3 people.... More

Beautiful pool and outdoor landscaping except do not go to swim alone for predator males minor and adult I encountered more than once. Police park nearby but one night a welder drilled a hole into a door lock and no sleep was possible. High summer rates for a budget motel. One of the better casa seises.
