Howard Johnson Pasadena
Ranked #7 of 31 Hotels in Pasadena
Reviewed January 21, 2013

This hotel is a good value and conveniently located for my recent business trip. The room was great and staff was accommodating. A couple of comments for improvement are make sure the shower knobs are on correctly, as mine was opposite of indicated and check on breakfast room so there is adequate food for all guests. When I went to get breakfast late, one entire family had wiped out all of the food, but other than that no complaints.

My family of 4 stayed here for 5 nights. Since we would be out from morning until late night, the purpose of the hotel was to have a place to have a quick breakfast, shower and sleep. Free parking, wi-fi, refrigerator and microwave were also big factors in selecting the hotel. We really were not dissappointed with our stay.
We booked a queen and king suite; the queen bed area was separated from the king bed area by the bathroom. The room was clean. The bedroom areas looked like it was updated, but the bathroom could have used a little more attention. The toilet did look old and the bathroom smelled a tiny bit musty - I don't think there's much ventilation in the bathroom. But, the bathroom was clean, which is all we needed. The sink was slow draining. We were on the second floor and our king bedroom overlooked Colorado Blvd. I was able to hear traffic and people talking outside, but it was quiet late at night. We had an adequate breakfast of waffles, fruit, cereal, bagels/bread and hard boiled eggs. No hot potatoes or sausage. The breakfast room isn't very large, so we did take our plates back to our room on one morning. We did not have a problem finding parking in their lot.
There was a pool, but we did not use it since the weather was too cold.
This is a no frills motel, but it certainly met our needs. We had a clean place to eat breakfast (free), take a hot shower and sleep. We had enough space to feel comfortable while we were in the room. We did have some wireless internet problems one night, but other than that it was fine.
