This hotel was not as advertised. Floor was sticky. Bathroom was in a state of decay. The biggest problem was that we left for 3 hours and came back to a bathroom full of ants. We called the front desk and they quickly came in with ant spray, which was nice. Beds were fairly comfortable. Still, the tripadvisor average did... More

The hotel is open air access to outside from your room. I believe the value is great, as this is a business trip pay for by the company, the travel web sites are about $80/night during that time. It is directly across the Santa Anita Racetrack and about 2 blocks to the Arcadia city park. On site they do weddings... More

Our family checked into this place for two days. Parked in front of building where our room was, saw construction. Rooms below and next to ours were in heavy renovation. (First negative clue) As soon as we opened the door we had a Strong insecticide smell. Then as we are in the room saw an extension cord running from one... More

This hotel is fantastic. The room is huge, balcony overlooks the beautiful gardens. The pool area is really good. Some great restos within minutes walking. Try the Korean one in same street, was lovely. Service was great also. Bed comfy and all linen clean and crisp. Walking distance to the racetrack which we will go to today. Definitely recommend

This hotel is a very nice, if a bit dated, hotel. Very comfortable and homey. It definitely seems to have some history and we enjoyed our stay very much. Would definitely stay here again. Location is great with Santa Anita Racetrack just across the street.

We stayed here for just one night, which was fine. It was quiet, and the grounds are beautiful. The rooms, although clean, are very dated (I wouldn't be surprised to find the same television on display in the Smithsonian). The bed was pretty comfortable. The swimming pool area is awesome! There is a fairly large waterfall next to the hot... More
