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

If you are in town for horse racing this is the best location to stay...Clean,inexpensive,helpfull staff..but needs immediate renovation...i heard they will close it and build a brand new hotel...i hope they keep the beautiful garden.. Get a first floor room and feel like you wake up in a beautiful forest.

Santa Anita Inn is a good place to stay. Not the best but worth the $. It needs some remodeling since the decor is out dated but the grounds are nice & our room was very clean. I'd definitely stay there again.

We had an extended stay here while a family member was in Methodist Hospital down the street. The staff was very accommodating and gave us total flexibility with our ever changing arrival and departure dates over a four week period. The grounds themselves are like a park with beautiful gardens, a large pool, and a hot tub. The hot breakfast... More
