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

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!

I've stayed in a couple Holiday Inns on business trips, but this was my first Holiday Inn Express. I would describe it as having few frills but just fine for a night or two. Location is bit strange as it is in the back of what is essentially a small strip mall. And being on Colorado Blvd I thought it... More

This property is one of the higher rated hotels in the Pasadena area, and the property overall, was very nice. I wasn't crazy about the location, however in the whole scheme of things, it turned out just fine. The staff was very nice, and I have no complaints with any of the service that we received during our stay. The... More

This is my fourth stay at this Holiday Inn as I have family nearby. The front desk manager Anabel is very eager to make each guest feel like they are the most important guest here. The rooms are ALWAYS immaculate. Noise is never a problem here, but still I get a top floor room. Don't fool yourself thinking..well I just... More

A above average facility for a HIE. Rooms are clean, each had a balcony. The pool is outdoors and it was a bit cold for a swim. The location is not the best for food variety not too many choices within walking distance.
