Spent two nights at this updated motel centrally located in Pasadena. Every inch of this property has been renovated. The front desk was cheery and polite, the lobby totally rebuilt with a new breakfast room above. Security is great, and the neighborhood residential and safe. Plenty of parking in courtyard and included with room.

Seems to be the most cost efficient option in Pasadena. Reception was very helpful. Rooms very practical and clean. Typical motel, plenty of parking, fenced in pool, nothing fancy. Walking distance to the center of Pasadena.

I love this hotel. Free continental breakfast which had options like instant oats, juice, cereal, milk, yogurt and fruit. I was full with it. Also, a great plus for me is that in the lobby and breakfast area they had a machine for complimentary tea and coffee that you can make at any time you want. The room had a... More

When I arrived the staff was helpful and didn't belittle me for my naive misunderstanding that the door key card needed to be in the wall holder for the Air Conditioning to work (other lights worked, but not the circuit that the AC was on). I stayed 2 nights and thoroughly enjoyed the breakfast bar with cereals, granolas and freshly... More

This is a really old motel, admittedly kept up reasonably well and located very conveniently, yet off the "main drags" of the town. The rooms are minimal -- don't be fooled by their website photos. The lobby is convenient for checking in online, and offers a coffee stand and some seating -- not much. The complimentary Continental breakfast is so... More

I love this location because it is walking distance to some of my favorite places in old town. Nice, clean rooms with comfortable beds... barebones breakfast in the morning ends at 9:30. I specifically stayed here for the pool... however, after check in I went to see the pool and it was locked with a sign, "Pool closed by The... More

Stayed here with a friend from Germany who found the motel. It was clean and in a convenient location, really close to the rail which he took from the airport and walked to the motel. There were Caltech people staying there; smart guys who didn't want to pay an arm and a leg for a place to sleep. Breakfast was... More

The hotel is centrally located and all that but the real gem of this place is the customer service. The staff is amazingly friendly and helpful. I have no complaints and would recommend this hotel to anyone going to Pasadena.

We stayed for one night while passing through on a road trip and we were very happy with our stay. The staff were great, they allowed us to change our room to the ground floor after we realised we had to drag our suitcases up the stairs (we had just done a trade show so had several very heavy suitcases...

This place was one of few available through memorial weekend. The rooms are really nice. Very spacious, very clean and nice and quiet. The bed was also really comfortable. I didn't have the breakfast but others did and said it was also good. Definitely recommend this as a place to stay. Parking was easy and we were allowed to leave... More
