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

I had a very terrible experience when I stayed in Swiss Lodge Motel this weekend. 1. Never trust if they say they provide you a continental breakfast. It’s absolutely a trap. 2. Room is very dirty; I don’t’ think they change the bed sheet, towels before you move in. furniture is broken they don’t fix; 3. It’s seems it’s a... More

Good basic hotel. Rooms and bathrooms were clean, quiet, and comfortable. Breakfast was adequate. WiFi was spotty at best, I was in a corner room, other rooms are probably better. Parking lot and swimming pool could use some work.

My first impression given the bullet-proof plexiglass in the office and the near vacant parking lot was that I had made a grave mistake. The front desk was neither friendly or accommodating. However, I was pleasantly surprised. The rooms are pleasant and comfortable and are quiet and clean. It is a basic hotel room without frills. No coffee maker in... More

The only questionable thing was Upon entering the room there were three very large stains on the carpet thus we kept our socks on whilst walking about. I decided to take a bath and Surprisingly it was of ample size not the small cheesy ones most motels feature. We had been to a couple of restaurants and had leftovers to... More
