If you are looking for a place close to Universal Studios and television show tapings but don't want to pay the really high prices of downtown LA, Pasadena is about a 20 minute drive with light traffic. It is a nice hotel. Clean and decent size rooms. Comfy beds. The staff was very nice. A young Asian woman checked us... More

We stayed here last weekend overnight following a concert at the Hollywood Bowl. The hotel staff was pleasant and the room was clean and comfortable. Breakfast was good too. Nice place to stay. Would recommend it.

Hotel is clean, with comfortable beds, fridge and coffee maker. They also had bathtubs (I love baths, so important to me). Rooms were $200, which seemed a bit pricey, but we were in town for sold out concert. There aren't a lot of other choices. They have pool, jacuzzi. Breakfast is pretty good, offering self serve hit and cold choices.... More

Pleasant check in experience. I was greeted and thanked for having IHG elite status. Lobby was clean. My room was large, clean and more than met my expectations. Wifi worked well. Breakfast in the morning was average- there could have been more fruit. There were only bananas and apples, but keep in mind this is a HI Express so good... More

I stayed here on business and the hotel is in a bit of an odd place. It shares space with shops/restaurants in a strip mall of sorts. Still, the hotel is nicely remodeled. The hotel has a great breakfast and the rooms have been recently updated. The rooms are very clean too. There's a nice pool and gym on site... More

The staff was not helpful in trying to help mitigate a reservation error. When I booked using the the Holiday Express main number I was told there was a pull out for my granddaughter.

I needed a place away from all of the stress of the Bar Exam, and the Holiday Inn Express provided it. Yes, it was located about four miles from where I needed to be for three days of tests (Pasadena Convention Center), but I got to prepare myself on the drive there, and unwind myself on the drive back.

Holiday Inn Express is always a reliable respite for the business traveler. Not fancy, but everything you need to get your work done and to grab a quick breakfast on your way out the door. I have stayed multiple times.
