My family of five stayed here two nights prior to the Rose Bowl Parade on January 1st. I'd never been to the Rose Bowl Parade, so I wanted to stay close enough to walk to our grandstand seating on Colorado Blvd. (I did not want to have to ride a bus to the parade route at the crack of dawn...

I honestly regret staying at this unprofessional, disgusting and filthy motel. The front desk staff are not professional and quite disrespectful towards guests, especially towards me when I addressed my concerns to them. The room was so filthy and nasty we had to sanitize most of the appliances and common areas i.e. bathroom. I was shocked with disbelief and disappointment... More

Stayed here for two nights. Glad I brought my own disinfecting wipes as the light switches, doors, table tops and bathroom were dirty. Unknown long black hairs on pillow and in sheets, though the linens were clean. Request for a blanket (the bed came with only sheets and bedspread) was met with resistance and rudeness. Would not stay here again... More

I reserved a room through Hotels.Com on very short notice, and was able to get a room for 3-nights. The owner was very gracious and hospitable, and even sparked up a conversation in the parking lot as I was unloading. The double-bed room was very clean and much more than I expected for my money. The room had a digital... More

Maid service was a no show on the second stay. Come to find they only make the room and provide fresh towels if the door hangar is placed outside the door. Too late to get service and reserve s new room. No hand towels provided only wash cloths. I would not recommend. Management and service pathetic

You pay for what you get. The motel is older. They have kind of attempted to paint to make it look a little better on the inside. It was clean & a big shower. The guy who checked me in was very nice. They need to do a full remodel to make it nicer.

This place has a friendly staff and the room are nice for the outer appearance. This is a motel that you would stay if you really needed to. Don't get me wrong is is pretty cheap but the rooms should be a little more well kept and some of the bugs out. The last time we stayed there was a... More
