I reserved a room through Hotels.Com on very short notice, and was able to get a room for 3-nights. The owner was very gracious and hospitable, and even sparked up a conversation in the parking lot as I was unloading. The double-bed room was very clean and much more than I expected for my money. The room had a digital... More

Maid service was a no show on the second stay. Come to find they only make the room and provide fresh towels if the door hangar is placed outside the door. Too late to get service and reserve s new room. No hand towels provided only wash cloths. I would not recommend. Management and service pathetic

You pay for what you get. The motel is older. They have kind of attempted to paint to make it look a little better on the inside. It was clean & a big shower. The guy who checked me in was very nice. They need to do a full remodel to make it nicer.

This place has a friendly staff and the room are nice for the outer appearance. This is a motel that you would stay if you really needed to. Don't get me wrong is is pretty cheap but the rooms should be a little more well kept and some of the bugs out. The last time we stayed there was a... More

This motel made my vacation experience the worst. The pictures online are so misleading. The room we got was dirty, and the towels were unsanitary with hairs left over on them. The owners talk loudly and give snide, dirty looks at you- not sure if this is because we were a group of 19-year-olds or if they do that to... More

I'm seriously wondering if I stayed in the same motel as the people who gave this place good reviews because I had a horrible experience and I would not stay here again even if I was paid to do it. This place is absolutely filthy. I knew the second I checked in because I found hairs on the towels they... More

If heading to Pasadena for any signature town attraction, such as the Rose Bowl or Rose Pasadena, this motel will do. It is prime real estate, located on Colorado Blvd, the main Pas entertainment drag. That being said, the motel is on the less exciting part of Colorado, where drab mom and pops and the like dominated over trendy boutiques... More
