I "checked" in July 14 about 3:30pm. Was told their computer system was down & they would need to take a picture of my driver's license & credit card & when system came back up they would then call me to come really "check in" Needless to say I was skeptical. I was assigned room 205. Got there & maid... More

Service was excellent. Very attentive & friendly staff at check in and breakfast. Unfortunately, sound carries between floors and the HVAC system was noisy. Otherwise, good basic accommodation at a fair price. Go for 3rd floor if possible - no one above you then.

Two night stay with the family, we had two rooms. One king suite and another 2 queen bed. Rooms are nicely updated and quiet. We experienced no problems even though this is an extremely busy hotel. On the main drag in Pasadena, I was surprised how quiet it was. Parking is awful here, though. I almost didn't have a spot... More

We were checked in quickly by very friendly, helpful staff. Our spacious room was very clean. Bed was most comfortable. The shower was strong pressure and very hot. WiFi worked great. There was lots of parking - they gave us a pass to display. Breakfast was very good with a busy attentive attendant. There was a huge range of choices... More

Can hardly ever go wrong with a Best Western property and this property was no exception to the brand. Been staying at BW for over 30 years and most everyone has been excellent. The standard that BW has maintained and continues to improve their properties.

The suites are roomy and great for late night work. The view outside is beautiful. Wonderful amenities make it nice and cozy. Covered parking is available. There is a wonderful selection for breakfast. The staff is always very friendly and helpful. Will definitely stay here again.

We found the staff exceptionally accommodating; we did have one unpredictable plumbing issue and it was addressed professionally; the staff went out of their way to make sure I was happy with the result. Thank you!

AVOID THIS HOTEL. The reviews are misleading and the part of town it's in isn't all that great. We were told the rooms were "updated" but there were dents and holes in the wall, the bed was remarkably uncomfortable, the tub was stained, some of the furniture was broken and the trim needed paint. NOT worth the money they're charging.... More

We stayed two nights here and were told we were upgraded to a suite. The first time we went to the room, our room key cards didn't work and I had to go back downstairs to get them fixed. The lobby staff was apologetic about it and it worked fine the second time. The room itself was spacious, but parking... More

It was very apparent that the staff were trying to meet our needs and were very generous with their ability to do so. We stayed in a suite with two rooms, a king sized bed in the "bedroom" and a sleeper sofa in the "living room." We also needed a roll away for an additional granddaughter. We were very happy...
