4 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

Although built in1957, our 3rd floor room was dated but spotless, with a new TV and Internet, comfortable beds (2 queens), facing courtyard with a nice pool. Free breakfast is minimal but a Starbucks is located in the next block. Interior hallways and elevator in desperate need of updating--carpet and paint. But for the money, you will not find a...

Nice hôtel, quick check inn. The room was clean and confortable, country decor. It was closed to the Rose Bowl stadium, it was very convenient, we were there after a soccer game and enjoyed our stay. Breakfast was good and staff pleasant. Good quality for the price.

I have stayed here before and enjoyed the funky charm of this place. I still think it is charming, built the same year as I, 1957. However, I noted some changes. I was given a much smaller room in the back of the hotel. The rooms have windows which open, which I very much enjoy. My room this time was... More

I was on a trip with two friends and we stayed in one of their family rooms, so each of us had a full bed. The room was large, clean and comfortable. Even though this is an older hotel on Route 66 it is very well kept.

I stood at this hotel in the summer of 2014 for 7 days with my daughter. The rooms were clean and nice sized and our back door led right into the pool area where we frequented every day. This hotel is right by the Rose Bowl stadium which was opened to the public on July 4th to watch the fireworks.... More

This is a funky old "Route 66" MOTEL. Yes, you park right outside your motel door. It's clean although dated. Started to rate it Average, but I actually enjoyed my five nights there. The price is right and it is in a good location. wiFi is spotty though. I enjoyed sitting by the pool working. Quiet. Be sure to get... More

This was my third stay at the Saga and will be in the future. Like others said, the carpets do need an upgrade and some new paint job in the hallway also, but the rooms are clean, spacious and have nice window shutters to control the light. It is nicely situated along Route 66 and far enough from the Old... More

This was a hotel across the colorado street. Clean property. Very 80s style. Receptionist was a really nice and kind lady. Expensive for the location and amenities. Nothing much to do near by. You need to drive everywhere.

We loved our stay at the Saga Motor Hotel. The location was perfect and the price was even better. The hotel is old but we were pleased with the size of the room, the cleanliness, and the very nice ladies at the front desk.

My wife and I stayed during a short overnight visit. The hotel staff was very nice, the property was charming, the room was nice except for the musty smell and the old carpets. My feet were black when I walked around in bare feet. The noise from Colorado Ave can be loud until traffic dies down after 11 pm. I... More
