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

I have stayed at the Santa Anita Inn twice, both times for Breeders' Cup. Santa Anita race track is directly across the street, so the location can't be beat. That is the only thing the hotel has going for it. The rooms are horribly outdated and border on filthy. I was afraid to walk on the carpet and wore slippers... More

Superb location rooms large and clean, but very dated. Its a shame because the gardens, pool area and reception are very pleasant and well kept.The complimentary breakfast is adequate .And as they say, you get what you pay for, overall good value and I would stay there again.

My husband and I lucked into staying at this hotel which is within walking distance of Santa Anita Park. Had we known how close we wouldn't have bought parking passes for the race track! The hotel has several buildings of rooms. Only a few restaurants within walking distance but if you are healthy, this should be no problem. Nice separate... More

Location is right near Santa Anita Race Track. Have stayed here off and on for 34 years, but this was our last stay. I do believe the lampshades, wallpaper, etc. are still the same, and now looking pretty shabby. The landscaped large inner courtyard is nice, but the only chairs to sit and enjoy it were inside the pool area,... More

The Santa Anita Inn is a place where you have it all a little old nostalgia and new. The place has been around a long time which it bears out with the wonderfully tended gardens and grassy areas. It is perfect for a wedding or business meeting. My room wasn't ready so they upgraded me to a suite. Wow! Bedroom,... More

Beautiful grounds located across the street from Santa Anita Park. Unfortunately it has seen better days. The rooms were a little tired. I had phoned in advance to make sure they had internet. I was assured they did. I arrived and was given the internet code and password. The desk brochure said there was a $7.95 charge. I assumed it... More

My wife and I really like this place. The rooms are big and clean (though a bit worn). Each room has a deck or balcony overlooking green, leafy grounds. We come back here on business several times a year. The desk staff is very nice. The ONLY bad experience we had was once (out of a dozen stays) when a... More
