The Pasadena Inn first off, was a steal at $95 for oldtown Pasadena on a Friday night. The location is safe, the rooms are very large and comfortable, and while the beds aren't the softest things in the world, were still perfectly comfortable. The Inn gets two major strikes against it though. Late September in SoCal is still REALLY freaking... More

When returned after day out found MANY ants in bathtub and walking on counter in bathroom. Also on bath towels (which are scarce - were give two bath towels, two hand towels, one wash cloth... More

What can I say about this place . . . it has a roof and I didn't get anything stolen. This is a good place to crash at at the end of a long drive. Don't turn on the lights and don't expect much. The bed was as hard as a 10 year old futon and the bathroom had cigarette... More

Second time staying at this hotel in the last few months. Have to give it a very good rating for location...just a few blocks from the downtown area or access to the 110 freeway. Last stay we had an issue with housekeeping , which was corrected immediately, and this stay had a similar problem..again corrected. But guests shouldn't have to... More

Lots of available (and free!) parking, beautifully renovated rooms, a very economical deal... if I ever have to stay in Pasadena again this is the first place I will look. The location is great, the breakfast is ample and served in an attractive, clean setting. I can't say enough good things about this place.

We stayed here for two nights after having our daughter drive by and check it out first. I have to disagree with the very few negative reviews, as our experience included friendly staff, spotless room, free wi-fi, and a great price for the location. Plus, you gotta love a place that is right across the street from Whole Foods and... More

We saw no ants cockroaches, pubic hair or anything else to distress us on our 2 night stay whilst visiting relatives nearby. It was just a good basic motel at a very reasonable price, with very friendly and helpful staff to us two limeys, within easy walking distance of the town centre (surely all you Americans will be jogging everywhere?),...

We had a business conference to attend at the Hilton ($229 a night) a few blocks away. We chose to stay at The Pasadena Inn for $80 a night, since all we were going to be doing was using it for sleep and showers. It was Excellent!!!!!!!!

Despite many of the negative reviews, we booked a room here to go to the Rose Bowl because it was affordable and close to everything. We were pleased when we arrived to find the Inn to be perfectly reasonable accomodations for the price. Our room was clean upon arrival, and was cleaned and straightened daily thereafter. Everyone at the desk... More

We wanted a little bit less expensive hotel for a 2 night weekend in Pasadena. What we got was a disaster. We arrived at 11:00pm (late check in). The bed sheets had not been cleaned, in fact there was long hair and what appeared to be pubic hair on the sheets and pillows. We called the front desk and requested... More
