Okay so it's not the most up-to date property I can not even argue that point. But the hotel is walking distance to the Santa Anita Race Track and the Westfield Mall. So convenient is an understatement. The hotel is clean and the staff are very friendly staff. The breakfast is not so good but you're close Le Roys Restaurant... More

The Motel is very close to Hwy 210 easily found by taking the turn off for Santa Anita Race track, which is directly opposite. The motel is set in grounds with a swimming pool in the centre. The public areas are clean and pleasant, the room blocks not so nice. Our room was large, newly carpeted and had some refurbishment.... More

This one time elegant hotel is scheduled to be razed, a 4 star hotel will be built here. My room was clean and comfortable. Room prices are cheap for the area, so the value is very high. I hope that some of the landscaping will be retained. In the meantime, the hot tub and pool are not heated, the Wifi... More

If the chance comes up again, I will probably stay here again. The staff, lobby, location and the grounds were lovely...the room, not so much. The room I stayed in just needs a complete overhaul, especially the bathroom. The bathroom is dated with water damage. Too bad, this place must have been nice 20 years ago. Please update!!! This place... More

I didn't realize that this hotel was used by many Chinese tourists as a "maternity" hotel until I stayed there for a few days. In fact, I later learned about this from a news broadcast by a local TV station. The place felt like a Chinatown. Most guests were Chinese and were pregnant! The come here because there's a hospital... More

We stayed here for it's proximity to colleges we were touring and the price. It is also close to the freeway and a Westfield mall, with a plethora of dining options (from Chipotle and Hot Dog on a Stick to Benihans and Cheesecake Factory), and with the largest Forever 21 my daughter had ever seen. In general, this was a... More

This hotel was not as advertised. Floor was sticky. Bathroom was in a state of decay. The biggest problem was that we left for 3 hours and came back to a bathroom full of ants. We called the front desk and they quickly came in with ant spray, which was nice. Beds were fairly comfortable. Still, the tripadvisor average did... More

The hotel is open air access to outside from your room. I believe the value is great, as this is a business trip pay for by the company, the travel web sites are about $80/night during that time. It is directly across the Santa Anita Racetrack and about 2 blocks to the Arcadia city park. On site they do weddings... More
