Days Inn Near City of Hope

Reviewed March 26, 2012

Generally speaking, in my opinion, the Days Inn chain flopped about 20 years ago. That being said, this particular property is different. The franchisee is onsite with his family and they take very good care of the building. Customer service is 100%. When my wife and I recently checked in I wasn't feeling well and the desk clerk (who turned out to be the owner's wife) assisted us to our room by carrying luggage and unlocking the door. She refused a tip. I am rating this property Very Good instead of Excellent because I didn't care for the morning free breakfast. What was great is that I booked this visit "blind" through Hotwire.com and paid only $47 a night. I was here on business for a week and saved quite a bundle.

Room Tip: It's a 2-story with no elevator. Unless you don't mind walking up a flight, a downstairs roo...

Great value in a location where hotels are pretty pricey. Great staff - the girl at the front desk simply couldn't have been more pleasant, welcoming and helpful! Room is clean and not smelly, AC worked well, clean towels, water in the shower drained well - I highly recommend this hotel! And it's 5 minutes away from the City of Hope, if that's what you are in Duarte for!

I personally want to apologize that you had a less than perfect stay at our hotel. Because we believe that non-smoking rooms should not be smoked in, we do a complete inspection upon checkout of each and every room. It is our only intention that when a guest asks for a non-smoking room that they are getting a non-smoking room. In the future if you would like to visit us, please feel free to mention this response for a discounted stay.

Thank you

I stayed for a week and had a nice two bed room. While there I noticed that a lamp needed repair and it was fixed while we were out. The beds were comfortable and clean. My only problem with the room was the age and the tiles needed replacing soon. Breakfast was clean and well stocked. I would recommend upping it to a hot breakfast in the future. Thanks for your hospitality.

After all of the negative reviews we had read we were almost reluctant to take this special deal through Expedia. It is an older motel but the rooms are gradually being updated. Plenty of parking. Very adequate breakfast with constant refills. Very friendly and helpful staff. Plenty of walking areas for exercise and for shopping and restaurants. Outdoor washer and dryer for guest use but under cover with nice seating area. Good halfway spot for Hollywood and Disneyland. Easy access but not right on the 210 and the 605. We would definitely return if we are in the area

The only down is no pool (it's HOT in LA during the Summer). On the up side, the hotel is centrally located, walking distance to stores, close driving to Walmart and fast food joints. Easy freeway access. Hotel is older, but clean. Employees are kind, respectful and accomodating. I stayed with a 60 yr old woman, and 3 teens and we were all happy ;) It isn't "perfect" but it is definitely comfortable.

We spent 3 days here at the Days Inn. Not the worst hotel I have stayed in, but close to it. Could not find anything in Pasadena for the Rose Parade and this was the only hotel with availability. It was only a 10 minute drive from hotel to parade route.Upon entering the room, the smell was not the best. Dirty towels left in the bathroom. The bed spreads looked like they haven't been cleaned for a long time. Carpet had stains everywhere.
The reception center next door had a party that went until 2 am with loud music. Complaining to the front desk did nothing. Very glad to check out!
