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

(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

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.
