While using a .com company dealing primarily with hotels, this property came up. I thought I was checking the availability for a 5 night stay, but as it turned out, it was booked by mistake. Unable to cancel immediately without incurring a 1 night penalty, I went by to check out the place. One has to deal with the hotel... More

I couldn't recommend this motel if they paid me. We came into town for an event at The Planetary Society and had never been to Pasadena, but the pictures of this place looked nice and it fit well into our budget. Boy was I misled. The parking is a horror story, it is the smallest I've ever seen, thankfully there... More

The room I checked into was very dirty, although I was moved to a different room after I mentioned the issues. However my new room was still very cramped. Service was not good. Overall it was my worst experience, and I've seen bad before.

Horrible! There was BLOOD ON THE PILLOW CASE and the owner only switched pillow cases. The pillows were super lumpy and old.. when we woke up in the morning the fitted sheet had come off the bed on my fiances side and there was a LARGE AREA OF DRIED BLOOD DIRECTLY UNDER WHERE HE WAS SLEEPING! DISGUSTING.

Recently stayed here! Blood splattered on the comforter, floor was filthy, mattress was old and hard, and the room atmosphere just wreaks of prostitution! I suspect owners are trying to submit positive reviews...DO NOT STAY HERE IF YOU WANT A REPUTABLE AND CLEAN HOTEL!

We research online and decided to try this motel. SURPRISES: Simple and clean rooms. No damp smell and well serviced. Free Wi-fi! Location is really good too. Easy drive onto freeways and attractions. I would recommend this motel if you are after a clean and well priced room.

Never, Ever! At check in (around midnight), the sign in the window said 'no drugs or prostitution'... Great, first clue. To get to the stairs up to the rooms, you have to walk thru a parking lot which was inhabited by multiple gatherings of some vulgar people... After being approached for money and someone asking if I wanted to "party",... More

we were never allowed in the room because the horrible owner/manager of the place wouldn't let us check in. the room was booked online through a booking agency, so he already had his money. he yelled and screamed at us and said we were disrespectful upon checking in. he threatened to call the police on us and then chased us...
