We stayed one night at this property. I am not normally a "Ho-Jo" customer, but this experience definitely opened my eyes to possible future stays. The room was clean, comfortable, quiet and we felt very safe. We were driving from San Francisco to Scottsdale and needed to stop half way. We pulled in late and they were very accommodating. Our room was waiting for us. They even had a small breakfast in the morning. An elaborate continental type.....not my thing but it was decent. The shower was powerful and huge with a big shower bench. There was a small fridge and microwave in room too. Incredible value for the money.

I stayed there for 5 nights while in LA attending my brother's wedding. The motel has been recently refurbished, rooms are cleaned everyday and the they are big and spacious. The breakfast served is quite basic no hot food apart from waffles which you can make yourself. The only bad points are the pool area which is miniscule and the pool looked like it needed to be cleaned. The doors to each room were not installed correctly so there are gaps at the end or top which leads to cold rooms in bad weather / at night.

Just had a 4 night stay at the HoJo in Pasadena. Great location on Colorado Blvd, close to everything. We had a 2 bed suite which they gave me a great price on (99/nt) and it was very roomy for 2 teenagers to spread out. Wifi was fine, no issues at all. Breakfast offered was decent, nothing fancy but if you want to save money the make you own waffles were a hit. Plus hard boiled eggs, cereals, breads & fruit. Customer service was terrific- very accommodating. I had arrived after a long flight from NY and found our room all ready - nice!! I would def stay there again. If you are looking for something more than expect to pay more, but it was a nice place to stay and a great price. The suite had 2 separate bedrooms and a bathroom in the middle, so everyone had privacy. A TV in each room and 1 had a small fridge and microwave.
