We recently stayed at the Holiday Inn Express for the weekend, booked two rooms as we had several family members. We found the accommodations to be clean, comfortable, well appointed and the staff very friendly. The breakfast was a good variety and a hit with the grandkids was the pancake machine. The pool and Jacuzzi were nicely heated and clean.... More

We spent two nights here and our daughter spent eight nights. Our room was small but comfortable. If you open the bathroom door, you can't open the door to the hallway--awkward. No refrigerator or microwave in this room. The toilet in our room was flushing slowly and maintenance was quick to respond. My husband needed a bottle opener and the... More

After some debate we decided on this hotel and were accompanied by our two granddaughters. Warmly greeted at the Reception Desk, which is always a great start for a vacation. This conveniently located accommodation with 2 double beds; we asked for a refrigerator and microwave and these were soon sent up to us. Breakfast was wonderful and with much fresh... More

The problem comes when staff is Hispanic n they don't get really well in English. Overall I can say it was good... More

Amazingly average hotel except for one big negative - the room had a sickening sweet smell probably meant to cover up against the rules cigarette smoking or some other smell. I opened the window and turned the air on high which did help.

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
