“Great Value”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed 3 weeks ago

This hotel is nothing fancy but the room was clean, good sized, and the furniture in good condition. The hot breakfast was very good. The interior does look better than the exterior. The only real negative was the freeway noise until around midnight. The staff is also very friendly.

I stayed at this property just a few days ago during the 2014 Breeders Cup. The owner and staff were very accomidating, room well appointed with modern flat screen TV's, wet bar with sink and fridge and coffee maker. Cleaned daily and just 3 miles from the Santa Anita Race Track. Plenty of parking, pool, jacuzzi and sauna. I just wish I would of had time to use the amenities. All and all I will return and not stay anywhere else in Pasadena.
Thumbs Up !

Room Tip: 3rd floor. Although the traffic is heavy in the area, the room was quiet and comfortable.

It must have been a motel 6 originally. The decor was so out of place and strange. It was as if an old eccentric aunt with extra money to burn, a love of either the movies or of France decided that decorating the place would help her young nephew succeed! I am serious, no one in their right mind would have done this.

The lobby was always empty all four days and looked so out of place. What cracked me up were the vignette of seating areas with curtains, tables and chairs sprinkled around the small parking lot that was over full each night, the spaces could have been used for cars.

The hotel rooms looked like orphans dressed up to try and look fancy but so missed the mark. Every room was filled with a strong air freshener that seemed to try to cover up the old. The ice machine worked on and off and the elevator broke down 3 out of the four days.

The bedding was nice, the mattress old, saggy and without a mattress cover so it felt weird. The shower and toilet area were motel six with striped wall paper, old shower heads and and odd smell.

Yes there was a "wet bar" in my room but the mini fridge kept falling over. The maid claimed to change my sheets but my makeup from the day before was still on there. I ask again for clean sheets but again the next day the tissue I had hidden in the sheets was still there, so not clean. The towels were old and so rough.

The noise level from the freeway, the busy street and the people standing outside smoking was so loud all 4 nights that I slept with noise canceling headphones on and sleep sounds.

The one bright spot was the friendly and very nice staff. Though they were super young, did not know the area at all and were useless when asked about places that delivered, places to eat or directions they were kind and sweet.

After attending a game at the Rose Bowl with a reservation the next day at Huntington Gardens, we spent one night at Le Reve in Pasadena. It’s a three-story motel with parking right off the freeway that has been updated a bit. The reception is friendly, it has a very nice indoor whirlpool and sauna, a small pool, exercise room, and simple hot breakfast included in the room rate. The rooms are clean and the beds comfortable. Bathrooms are old and could use updating. Had problems getting the shower to switch from bathtub mode to shower. Air conditioning unit is in the window and it’s loud. Opening the window means listening to the traffic. They have bicycles available for guests. Although I wouldn’t spend a vacation here, it was pleasant for one night.

Room Tip: Ask for a room on the third floor for more quiet. Elevator is located at rear of hotel. Stairways on...

We stayed here last year under other name. We liked the location to colorado blvd where everything is & the rose bowl. The chairs in the room are not comfortable for sitting longer than 20 min. We had to move the nightstand to the other side of the room to open the refrigerator door. The fan in the bathroom is obnoxiously loud. No guide for TV channels again. The food was so so & kinda cold if you dont get there early. The jacuzzi was barely warm this time. Its all the little things that make your stay better but it was adequate. Think we might try another hotel for next Pasadena visit

We were on business trip to Pasadena area.We had to book a place that is pet friendly.The hotel is really pet friendly, it's breakfast is amazing and it is pretty much located within good dining area. The rooms are a little old but I understand they are going to be doing some upgrading the end of this year. I wish them well.

Room Tip: King size bed with wet bar was good

A hotel is for travellers to rest and sleep at night. What I cannot fathom is the fact that they don't offer a pillow. Instead, they have something like a cushion (square-shaped), stuffed with cotton balls. It didn't even come close to those $4.95 pillows at Walmart. I can feel those uneven cotton balls and the smallish square-shaped cushion under my head.
For the price I paid, I think I deserved a proper pillow.

The wifi is non-existent in the first room I got and they knew it. Front desk immediately changed the room for me with much better coverage.

For the lack of pillow alone, I would not recommend this hotel to anyone. It doesn't matter if they have a Four Seasons breakfast buffet.
