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

The Pasadena Inn is near Old Town Pasadena, accessible by Metro train, easy (free) parking, and so much cheaper than other options in the area. Best thing about it was the hot breakfast bar in an enclosed upstairs patio space: not crowded, with plenty of options (even good protein for a vegetarian like me)! The room is nothing special, but... More

We stayed here 5 days while visiting family in the area. We found the room to be clean, with a nice flat screen TV, refrigerator, microwave, hairdryer--all the things that you need while traveling. The king bed and pillows were comfortable. The continental breakfast was okay, it would've been better with some sort of protein, perhaps boiled eggs or microwaveable... More

The Pasadena Inn is a centrally located property with clean, basic but comfortable rooms, friendly service and a good value. A perfectly fine place to stay for a short visit. Although we had an issue with our room, the reception was quick to change us to another room and we were satisfied.

Had to visit Pasadena for some school assessments and could not drive from LB, CA to Pasadena back to back. I am so glad I stayed here. Mr. Sung made everything possible to check me in before 3pm. I rented the suite, which has 3 beds. Perfect size. 3 adults and 3 children. We had 2 cribs and it was... More
