“Good Value for the Price”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 1, 2012

My partner and I had an unexpected overnight trip to Los Angeles and needed a relatively inexpensive place to stay close to Pasadena and downtown. This Eagle Rock motel provided the ideal location and fit our low budget. While the rooms are dated, they are clean and come with flat screen televisions and free internet access. The motel also serves a limited breakfast - quite a pleasant surprise for the price. I would also complement the owners and staff for inquiring whether we needed anything and quickly provided an iron and ironing board when requested.

Room Tip: Request a room away from Colorado Blvd.

5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 11, 2012

In 1965, when I moved out on my own, I rented a room at The Rose Bowl Motel. On a recent trip to L.A. (2012), I decided to stay at The Rose Bowl Motel again mostly for sentimental reasons. I stayed a week. The staff is very friendly, the room was clean, and although my room was fairly close to the street in front, it was very quiet and I slept very well. One of the coolest things is that Trader Joe's is right across the street! It is also close to access just about every freeway in the L.A. area, while being in Eagle Rock that has a small town vibe. If you're looking for a comfortable, convenient, and friendly place to stay, I would recommend the Rose Bowl Motel.
