“A decent hotel in a good place”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 10, 2013

This hotel is situated in a good place in northern LA. The price was excellent compared to some other hotels. The beakfast room is tiny, but other visitors gave space as much as possible. I recommend this hotel if you need a decent inexpensive accommodation with good parking possibilities.

Room Tip: first floor near the breakfast room is enough to make life simple!

For the money, I found this hotel to be comfortable and clean. It was fairly close to old town Pasadena (with a car) although you could walk the distance too. The breakfast was good too. Beds were comfortable.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 8, 2013 via mobile

A friend & I stayed 2 nights while in Pasadena visiting friends. The location was ideal. Our 2-queen room was clean and in decent shape.

People walk by the windows on all levels above ground, and even a conversational tone carried right through the window, interrupting sleep a few times.

Other than that, no complaints. The room would have been too small for spending any time, but we just needed it for sleeping at night. We appreciated the free wifi and the fridge/micro.

Parking spaces are tight and we got almost the last one when we arrived about 12:30 a.m. our first night.

Service was courteous - we had no special needs or requests, so can't judge flexibility or customer service.

The breakfast was basic and adequate - cereal, waffles, bagels, fruit.
