Rooms we're clean but small. The rooms had a microwave, fridge and some if the rooms had hair dryers. Breakfast was cereal and pastries, coffee and tea available. The dining area had only 2 chairs, we were in a party of 4!! Good location for travelling around LA. The experience would be improved by having tea & coffee making facilities... More

Went to the Rihanna/Eminem concert at the Rose Bowl. Just needed a room to crash in overnight. This was more than adequate. The room was small and compact (if it was larger I'd give it a 5) but it was clean and the shower was plenty strong. There was only room for one bed so I had to share it... More

great location, great bed, VERY clean, nicely appointed, pleasant and helpful staff, FANTASTIC price - only reason its not five stars is that its not a resort property. I WILL be back - whenever I need LA digs. FYI though, it is not within eyesight or earshot of the Rose Bowl. :-)

When we called this highly reviewed motel, we were told there was a room available and quoted a price higher than is quoted on their own website. When we questioned this he told us rudely, "No Vacancy" and hung up. We were tired, and stranded and on a long trip, so we called back, ready to pay the extra money,... More

This is a very nice motel. The staff was very friendly and helpful. The motel was clean, and they assisted me with any requests that I had. The only issue is the AC sucked. I will be staying at this property again. Very happy over-all.

Very modest but nicely maintained court-type motel. My guess it was built in '40s and the room size reflects that era. The queen size bed was comfortable but made the small room seem even smaller and the closet has been sacrificed for the fridge and microwave. The bathroom was extremely clean with updated fixtures but the original, and beautiful tile... More

The hotel is simple, but clean, quiet and safe. The room is very small, but it was very clean. In the room there are a microwave, a refrigerator, a comfortable bed and a good wifi internet. The breakfast is very poor, basically coffee and packed croissants. The staff is very friendly. I think this hotel is fine for the price... More

My husband and I drove from Amarillo, TX to Los Angeles, CA in one day last week. After hours of searching for an inexpensive, but nice hotel...we happened upon the website for the Rose Bowl Motel in Pasadena. When we arrived, staff greeted us by name, checked us in immediately and offered to help us unload our car. Although the... More

We traveled to Pasadena for the Rose Bowl Parade and most of the major chains were already sold out. We found this motel which was also located on Colorado Blvd but discovered it's not in the main area. It's in the next town over of Eagle Rock. That was more my fault for not consulting more maps but It wasn't... More
