I really wouldn't count on being able to find any sort of lodging within walking distance to the parade route at this late date - usually hotels in Pasadena sell out quite early for New Years Eve because the parade is so popular and people want to do exactly this.

Instead, I'd look for a hotel in downtown LA or in Hollywood - from either you should be able to take the Red Line subway to Union Station, and at Union Station you can switch to the Gold Line light rail train which will take you in to Pasadena.

Here's a map of where everything is in Pasadena related to the Parade and the Gold Line.

In any case, please share with us your hotel budget for this night. It will help us give you more specific recomendations.

Many people camp out along the parade route with sleeping bags and provisions. Can't get much cheaper than that.
