Hotel was old and small. Rooms were dull and grungy. Parking is a joke, small one lane in and out. Beds were firm. Only good thing was the bathroom, flat screen, and it was quiet. No lobby for office just a barred up window to walk up to. This place makes motel 6 look good. I might stay here again... More

So horrible! Booked this motel via hotwire! Big mistake!!! Nasty stained mattress no fridge or microwave as stated on website as amenities. Parking full and attendant stated to park on street which is $3 per night with city of Pasadena. Ice was 50 cents to fill up bucket one time. Toilet clogged and attendant not available. I chose to leave... More

Nice tile work in bathroom. Freshly painted. Bed is hardest I've ever slept on; amost like floor. Situated ~200 feet from highway, so it's quite loud. Parking spot was so cramped I had to go back and forth 6 times to get out.

0 stars is my ACTUAL rating! In fact, if I could rate negative stars, I would. I am extremely dissatisfied with this motel. They did not honor my reservation and turned away my best friend's daughter and her husband even though I called Orbitz and they called the motel and the manager agreed to add them to the reservation. In... More

My roommate and I booked a room here for a night on our two-day trip home. We arrived at this nightmare of a motel at one in the morning after a long drive. We check in at the "lobby," a barred window, where we rang the bell and were "greeted" by a man in pajamas who wasn't to enthused to... More

We stayed here 1 Sunday night to Monday. There is a window that opens to the street/interstate for fresh air. The din is its own constant music but is dimmed by closing the window and putting on the fan/a/c that works fine. There is a view of the mountains beyond. There was a nice view from the bathroom window-but the... More

I had lost my ID just before arriving at the hotel and was very tired. The staff worked with me alertly to figure out alternative ways to verify my identification and were so helpful. The rooms in the hotel are really very good for the price and I always find the staff incredibly welcoming. Nice TVs. Good hotel. Can't beat... More

Had to make a quick change of hotel reservations because of a venue change. We've stayed at every level of hotel from third world dumps to 5 star resorts. I do COMPLETLEY understand getting what I paid for but...Our rooms had 4 towels that were about 18x24 and thread bare cheap. My skinny 16 year old son couldn't tie it... More
