I got a room here in the AM for a stay that evening and was very pleased. I got a suite for perhaps half the price of a regular room had I gotten one closer to the center of LA. I had fun with the automatic pancake making machine, too. I had two TV's in the room, and the room... More

We stayed here for 5 nights and were very pleased with our room, the location and the breakfast offered each morning. Hotel personnel were very helpful and friendly.

Comfortable room size (queen room). Room newly renovated. As hotel was undergoing renovation, breakfast was served in a makeshift lobby area. Breakfast has scrambled eggs, sausage, bacon, biscuit/gravy. We were there for 4 nights during the 4th of July weekend. It seemed they were unable to cope with the crowd during breakfast. Food and drinks were not replenished fast enough... More

Upon entering the room I noticed an odor. I pulled the FILTHY filters located in the window A/C unit and washed them in the tub. This helped with removing the unpleasant odor. The overall condition of the room was okay but was it worth the 70-80 dollar savings by not staying at the Marriott? I'm not sure. The front desk... More

This hotel is off of a main street and close to everything, but far enough from the hustle of downtown Pasadena. The rooms are large, clean, and come with a refrigerator and a microwave. The breakfast selection is decent and fresh. The staff are very nice. The only reason this didn't get a five star rating, is that they were... More

I just spent 4 days at this hotel. It was great considering the massive renovation the lobby is going through. The rooms are nice and well kept. The breakfast is good and well stocked...never ran out of anything. They also interchange their menu so you don't eat the same thing every day. Parking is easy, convenient and complementary. The pool... More

This Holiday Inn is like new. They are completing a renovation, the lobby is almost finished. I would have given it five stars if it was a stand alone hotel, however that is very minor. Parking is free in a attached garage. Their breakfast is better than most other "Fast Start" breakfast. Make sure you try one of the cinnamon... More
