We stayed here while attending a con. We're not picky by any means, but the showers were only hot the first night, and then it's as if they just turned off the water heater for the other days. Also, the wifi turned off like clockwork around 10 pm every night, and the heater only worked half of the time, blowing... More

We stayed here for one night while vacationing in the LA area. Pros: - Reasonable price - Clean and comfortable - Good wi-fi - Big new TV with tons of cable channels - Walls are painted with beach motives, which gives it some personality Cons: - The place is next to the highway and you can hear the traffic at...

The pillows were so flat they were almost non-existent. They advertise refrigerator and hair dryer. When we asked they said all those rooms were sold. There was only ONE outlet in the entire room. None in bathroom. Only one nightstand and no lamps. The towels were thin and no wash cloths or hand towels. Would NOT recommend this motel.

This place is infested with cockroaches! I found them in the bathtub, on the baseboards and on the walls. In addition, the room was filthy. There's free WiFi, but no desk to put the laptop on. The only chair in the room is a small, metal folding chair. The bath towels are barely larger than standard hand towels. There was... More

Had read mixed reviews but decided to try due to price and location. First impressions were not good as the man behind the desk was so unfriendly and unwelcoming. I felt like he didn't want us to be there bothering him when as the motel as practically empty you think he would be happy for business! Our room was fine,... More

Go away, better sleeping under a bridge. The owner is a scary guy, ready to cheat you in any way. I booked it on booking.com and I was there after 18.00: the guy at reception tells me my card isn't verified. I asked to retry or use another credit card but the owner refuse it in any way. He just... More

The room smelled funky and was so smaller then they said it was.The room was dirty and had dust everywhere. There were an old pair of men's underwear in the closet. The parking is small hard to get in and out. The manager and staff are rude. After seeing the underwear I did not want to stay there, the manager... More

While using a .com company dealing primarily with hotels, this property came up. I thought I was checking the availability for a 5 night stay, but as it turned out, it was booked by mistake. Unable to cancel immediately without incurring a 1 night penalty, I went by to check out the place. One has to deal with the hotel... More

I couldn't recommend this motel if they paid me. We came into town for an event at The Planetary Society and had never been to Pasadena, but the pictures of this place looked nice and it fit well into our budget. Boy was I misled. The parking is a horror story, it is the smallest I've ever seen, thankfully there... More
