firend recommended the Saga Motor Hotel becuase he knew how much we like vintage and hisotric hotels. The Saga did not disappoint! They even had real glasses in the rooms - "old school!!!"
It is suprising well maintained, well apointed and true to its style and time period while providing modern ameneties like Wi-Fi and free continential breakfast. Our room hands windows that opened which I always like!
The pool is swell and you are located right on Colorado Blvd across from Pasadena City College.
A comfortable place, a great base for exploring the cool stuff in Pasadena and very reasonable rates!
