“Unbearable night”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed August 6, 2012

Wow, this was by far the worst motel I have ever stayed in. The Decor was filthy, dated, and infested ! Yes, I said infested with both bed bugs and unfortunately in the early hours of morning I saw a cockroach. The location is seedy and we had the "privilege" of rooming next to a currently working prostitute. We basically didn't sleep nor uncover the bed or get undressed. The motel is noisy and crawling with shady characters who cause you to constantly check the locks and your car. I was also quite disgusted to realized not only are there tacky mirrors behind the bed and to the side of us but the cable tv is equipped with a pornographic channel that had my children been with us could have been turned on as easy as cartoons. All in all I hope the city of Pasadena condemns the motel and the less than savory neighborhood gets cleaned up.
