It is in great location, kept very clean and much better than I expected. Nice breakfast is included, rooms are clean and well kept. Reserevation was held till late at night, and check in and check out was a snap. Would stay there again!

I was travelling on business and had not stayed at a Howard Johnson before. I chose to stay here for the location and rate and was very pleased to find how nice the rooms were! All of the staff was awesome and the grounds well kept...but best of all, this is the place where the Rose Bowl Parades kicks off!

Nice, clean, comfortable and affordable property very conveniently located just west of downtown Pasadena. Short drive to any area of Pasadena. I normally would not stay at most Howard Johnson hotels because they tend to be lower level and in not great areas but this one is a big exception that I would recommend to anyone for Pasadena.

We are actually returning customers. We come up every year for an Expo. The Hotel is clean and nicely up to date. We are very comfortable staying here and love the Breakfast nook.
