“Like many chains ...”
Reviewed January 3, 2013

This hotel's photo doesn't do justice to it. The motel is generally well maintained, well kept on the exterior and has the same features as many chains. Our room, 309, was a king bed with a microwave, small frig, table, coffee maker and desk plus a small couch (probably a twin hide-a-bed). The couch had definitely seen better days but everything else in the room was just fine. The room was even somewhat spacious. A small breakfast is offered 6-9am in the lobby - coffee, orange juice, some cereal, packaged pastries, and fresh fruit. No waffles or pancakes, etc. but it is a breakfast if you want something.
The entire motel backs right up to I-210. Despite the nearness, our room's dual pane windows made the road noise very muffled. Our room had windows the entire width of the room. I am not sure other rooms have the same because they had a window by the entry door and ours did not.
The only negative is that the room did not have a suitcase stand and we had to put our suitcases either on the floor or the table.
There is plenty of parking, a small pool and quite a few restaurants nearby including a Red Lobster, Claim Jumper and several other well known hotels. This is not a bad neighborhood. Freeway access is very easy. We would have no problems staying here again if we were visiting the area. We stayed here to attend the Rose Parade and Rose Bowl which were about ten minutes down the freeway.

Room Tip: Ask if the center rooms like #309 are different from the other rooms and judge if road noise might b...

Dear janiewall,

Thank you for your excellent and informative feedback! And, more importantly thank you for the lovely pictures you have upload. Yes, the hotel is indeed well-located. Within walking distance, you'll be able to find any kinds of cuisine. The room that you stayed in RM309 is what we called the Deluxe King, the layout is different and more spacious than the other type of rooms. We are sorry for the missing suitcase rack in the room and apologize that you had to put your suitcase on the floor. On the plus side, we are currently updating some of our furniture.

We hope you enjoyed the Rose Parade and Rose Bowl this year. If you do have a plan to visit the area and need room accommodation please do not hesitate to contact the hotel direct at (626) 358-8981 for reservation.

Thank you,
Sincerely,

Management Team
Oak Tree Inn

The hotel is within walking distance to restaurants, the room was clean and the bed was comfortable. The staff was friendly and helpful, the continental breakfast was a nice feature, coffee was hot and the pastry were fresh. It was nice to have a fresh piece of fruit for our daily excursions. The racetrack was so close, we walked one day. (About a mile) Sidewalks are on the main strip. Would stay again,,, not to mention the pool (outdoor) was clean and a nice feature after our day at the track.

My husband and I spent the night here before his surgery at city of hope because we live 2 1/2 hours away and didn't want any stress per-surgery.
The room was very nice and clean. The king size bed was very comfortable. The price was reasonable and there are several restaurants within easy walking distance.
My only complaint (not a big deal) is that the free breakfast was almost all carbohydrates and my only gluten-free choice was an apple.

This hotel is located near to 210 freeway and was convenient to visit friends from Alhambra to Newport Beach. Excellent beds, a good amount of space, cereal, pastries, and fruit for breakfast. I recommend this hotel.

Went to the area on a Tuesday with no prior reservation. Very surprised to fine the large chain hotels were full up. The front desk staff offered us a room immediately at a very reasonable price. Granted the "continental breakfast" was very limited and the coffee not so good. But the room was clean and met our needs. If you are in the market for a place with basically no extras this is establishment is a very good choice.

Real nice clerk who waited for me to check in when I could arrive, all without a reservation. Arranged a top floor for me and overall it was a nice value.

We checked in at the last minute with no reservation.( this was a Saturday night) Wanted a king room but all they had was a double queen. We stayed that night in the double and they moved us to a king the next day. The room was clean and comfortable. They are doing alot of upgrades. The price was great and we stayed for 8 nights. The staff was nice and very accomodating. The only down side that we had was the hottub wouldn't heat up but heck that was something small and the staff jumped right on it to fix the problem.
