The property is a little dated, but the rooms are perfectly adequate. The staff is helpful and friendly, and the continental breakfast will get you through the day. The hotel is located on busy Colorado Blvd., which is a main thoroughfare, so it gets a little noisy, but overnight is fine.

This hotel is probably a 3,5, better than average but not quite very good. We booked two rooms for three nights while we attended the Breeders Cup race meeting at Santa Anita. Our rooms were spacious, each one had two huge queen-sized beds and a good sized bathroom. Parking is free, the reception staff are lovely and the swimming pool... More

The first thing I saw in my room was some sort of burn/food/unknown object right in the middle of the bedspread. I was never able to identify it and it made me a bit paranoid about the rest of my stay, but overall the room was okay. The room had the standard desk, TV, refrigerator, etc. They've removed carpeting and... More

Large room with desk and chair. Fast 5G and 3G free wi-fi in the room.Bathroom very clean. Free parking! I love its free parking. Walking distance to Caltech. Friendly front desk people. It includes breakfast, which is not bad, but not many types of food.

Wish I could give half stars as it's really 4.5 stars from me. Good location (but not excellent), decent breakfast options for a few nights' stay. Very good wi-fi. Clean, comfortable, good value. Enjoyed my 3 night stay. Would definitely stay again if I needed a good value hotel and didn't mind being a little way away from old town... More

Facility is undergoing a major renovation. The room we were assigned had been newly renovated top to bottom. It had a clean modern look, a bit IKEA-ish. Shower was the highlight, with nice fixtures, roomy and sleak modern touches. Floor is a wood vinyl which I think is much more hygienic but somewhat sticky when walking on it. Bed was... More

The room was nice, bed and pillows were comfy. However, walls were super super thin. This is an executive hotel so most people were up and stomping around at 7am. It was clean and I felt safe there so that is a plus. The room key kept get demagnetized and they were very apologetic about the low quality key. It... More

The only positive point about this place is the young man working at the reception at night. Breakfast is a joke, very limited, with tasteless food and almost no space to sit down. The older guy working as a receptionist in the morning looks sloppy, like an homeless and is rude, no good. The carpet in the room and in... More
