We stayed here a few nights ago by accident. We hoped we were closer to downtown, but it was not too far away. Hotel was clean, staff friendly, bathroom newly remodel which was very well done. Breakfast was fresh and plenty of seating in area. Impressed at the three computers for use for guests including one MAC.

The Holiday Inn Express conveniently located for Pasedena. It is a small Art Deco style building that shares the site with a mini mall. The rooms are reasonably sized and the service good enough. A large fridge and a microwave was provided. Also there is free wifi and a small pool behind the hotel. The breakfast is complimentary but just... More

Booked to stay 3 nights and basically impressed by the helpful reception desk staff on arrival and who actually took the trouble to call the room after check in to see if all OK. Room was clean and well furnished with plenty of room (double queen) and roomkeeping did a great job whilst out and about. Never been to Pasadena... More

My family stayed here while visiting family. The customer service was amazing. They were very accommodating. Rooms were clean, had a microwave, refrigerator and ironing board. Nice breakfast in the morning with pancakes, eggs, sausage, fruit and more. Had a nice clean pool and hot tub. My only complaints were that we were able to hear the people above us... More

This hotel is located at major highway in Los Angeles. We booked a room with two beds and is clean and tidy. However we noticed an unpleasant smell in the room after a while and we informed the receptionist the following morning. They were very helpful but there were no alternative rooms to move us and they said they will... More

We recently stayed 6 nights at Holiday Inn Express in Pasadena. The staff was extremely friendly and helpful throughout our stay. While our room was small, it was neat and clean. We did not have a refrigerator or microwave, so we requested one at the front desk. Both were delivered free of charge within 5 minutes of our request. The... More

Hotel offers free breakfast and wi-fi, but I find it a bit far away from Los Angeles as the traffic can be quite heavy specially in the mornings. Service is quite good though. Nothing to complain about the hotel itself.

I have mixed emotions about this hotel. The staff was very friendly and helpful. The breakfast was good as are all HI Express, but the hotel is older and not the normal HI Express. The first room we tried was very small and did not have a microwave and refrigerator like most do. The upgrade suite was nice, but the... More

Dear James S, Thank you for your candid review. We are very appreciative of your comments about our friendly staff.

This hotel is located on Colorado Blvd. By going down going west, you can easily reach the Old Town with its stores, restaurants, cafes, cinemas and other. The hotel itself is well tended, clean with plenty of parking and an average breakfast. Service at the front desk was courteous and prompt and a bottle of water was offered. I would... More

We loved this place! The staff was great, the room perfect, the location perfect. We couldn't have asked for more. We would stay here again in a heartbeat. Thank you, Holiday Inn Express, for doing your part to make our Southern California vacation perfect!
