4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 18, 2013 via mobile

Stayed here to attend an event at Pasadena Convention Centre. 5 minutes walk to Del Mar Metro to get into LA for tours & entertainment (about 40 minutes). Walk to Convention centre and Wholefoods market. Safe and workable without own transport.

I stayed in the Pasadena Inn for ten days in November/December 2012. The purpose of the trip was a family reunion and other members of my family also stayed there. I found the staff, from those in Reception to the cleaners, to be extremely efficient, friendly and helpful at all times. The room was cleaned every single day, and the towels were also replaced on a daily basis. The room was spotless, with loads of sockets and lights. The free Wifi was a real bonus, one that is not available in most other hotels. The breakfast, which was included in the price, was really good too. The Pasadena Inn is in a very central location, close to the main shopping areas and the rail system. I really recommend a stay in this lovely facility to anyone who is in the area. Excellent value for money. The Pasadena Inn is a real Gem.

Pasadena is not a place with a lot of reasonably priced motels. The Pasadena Inn was not our first choice, but the place that was our preference could not get my credit cards to work. Pasadena Inn had no problem. Not cheap, but ok. Our room was the corner room, front side of the motel, looking down the Arroyo Parkway. The room was large, two queen beds. This was just right for our family of 4. The window opened, which was nice. Reasonably quiet. The breakfast was basic, biggest complaint is the breakfast room is smallish and some of the patrons seemed to think it was ok to linger there. So we did not get a seat and had to wait. Pool small. Parking on surface and in underground garage.

Room Tip: Front corner above the restaurant.

As some of the other reviews state, great location, but the noise factor is really bad. We were kept awake from 2:30 to 7:30 with partying neighbors, A call to the front desk slowed it down for about 20 minutes.
Doors opening or closing make a very loud sound. The finally moved us to another room where we could hear the repaving of the parking lot in front of our room.
Front desk people nice but have been schooled in not ALLOWING contact with the manager.
That's all folks, no more of this place for us.

Nice, clean rooms; free parking, breakfast, coffee, and wi-fi; excellent location--close to old Pasadena and the freeway; friendly, helpful staff. We stayed here after a poor experience "upscale" hotel in Long Beach and couldn't have been more pleased. Strongly recommend.

My wife and I stayed here for one night on the 6th October 2012. We arrived early afternoon and were warmly welcomed and even asked if we followed soccer by the Hispanic Clerk -that's good! . We ahd asked for a ground floor king room, and that's exactly what we got, although the checkin clerk said that this was because we were early. We were able to park outside our room. The Inn looks a lot better in life than it doe4s on the internet, and our room was a very good size, clean and smart. The large flat screen TV had a wide choice of channels.
The Inn is just a block from Pasadena's old town and therefore, at the rates charged, very good value. This is a very good value stay in a nice part of town, if there's a "must do better" it's the breakfast which is served on the open area above reception. Although there are some china plates and metal knives and forks nobody takes the trouble to settle you in and explain what's available, in fact the women who looked after breakfast was remote and unhelpful -thare's no need for this and it spoils the experience.
Would we stay here again? Yes it's a very good stop in Pasadena, but it could be better.

Room Tip: Get ther early and park outside your ground floor room.

I had to book a room here in the last minute, and wasn't expecting that I'd want to give it a rave review - but I do! If you're looking for a fancy room, this isn't the place you'd book anyway. However, it's very clean, a good place to get some work done while you're on business, right on the Gold Line and in easy walking distance of Old Pasadena, and just downright pleasant. The staff have been wonderful, a real break from many hotels I've stayed at. The pool is small but immaculate. Though they do have a breakfast available, it's hard to take advantage of it when there's a Whole Foods kitty-corner from there with pretty much anything you could possibly want. As a bonus, there was an in-room fridge and microwave, which came in very handy when bringing home some leftovers from the fabulous restaurants just a few blocks away. If and when I come back to Pasadena, I will definitely come here again!

Room Tip: Rooms toward the back are quieter than the ones closer to the street.
