“4 Days and 3 Nights”
Reviewed May 29, 2013

Spent the Memorial Day Weekend Here: 4 Days and 3 Nights.

Friday Night: Checked in was a breeze: 10 minutes at most. The night staff was quick and friendly, and informed me that breakfast was from 6:30AM to 9:30AM. The parking lot wasn’t extremely crowded, and there’s ample parking in the back if the front is filled up.
My room was located on the 3rd Floor, and nicely convenient to the elevator and stairway. Perks to being on the 3rd Floor, I was able to view my car from the parking lot too. It was also nice that they had an on-site laundry place.
Breakfast: The best parts: The waffles, the blueberry bread slices, the oatmeal and the hardboiled eggs. The worst parts: The muffins – it was hard and bland – definitely need to get another brand. The OJ tasted like it was watered down.
Hotel Room: It was clean and spacious. I didn’t felt cramped walking in. It came equipped with a microwave and fridge, which was nice since there’s a bunch of supermarkets nearby, and in case you wanted to reheat your food and keep your food and drinks fresh and cool. I saw on their website they only had a fridge, and when they had the microwave, I was happy 
I had a non-smoking room with a King Bed, and it came with lots of pillows, and a giant one to prop in bed for watching TV or reading. However, the smaller pillows itself were really lumpy. The bathroom and vanity area itself was really nice, clean and spacious. I had a lot of towels in my room – 3 sets of each: XL, Medium and Smalls. Of course, toiletries were refilled every day when I ran out. I didn’t like the bar soap as much – it dried out my skin. They even provided makeup remover towelettes for their female guests, and so that was a nice touch 
Shower/Tub/Bathroom: It was kind of claustrophobic in there – it felt cramped and small, however, it was very clean, and so that made up for it.
My Only Two Gripes: 1) The noisy neighbor next door, who keeps slamming his door, especially when he got up at 7AM. Really??? Is it that necessary -_- 2) Flatscreen TV: The channels took forever to change, and they’re standard channels. Though the first night I was there, I was at least grateful for MTV, and ended up watching Guy/Girl Code for that night.
There’s also a Fitness Room across from the Lobby, but I didn’t end up using it since I had access to three gyms: Pasadena Sports/Active and Monrovia Active.
Overall, it was a nice place to stay for some R&R

We have stayed here many times over the last 4 years, after finding it conveniently located for anything to do in Pasadena.

Easy access to food, museums, shopping.

A friendly staff and a pretty decent free breakfast, too.

Rates are fairly priced, we earn a discount as returning guests each time.

Room Tip: Closer to the elevator saves a lot of walking.

The hotel is in need of some repairs but it is clean enough and quiet. It was a good deal and we did not spend a lot of time in the hotel. It is a five minute walk to a big grocery store and restaurants and a quick drive to downtown.

Room Tip: Try to stay on the backside of the hotel (other side of the main parking lot) It will be quieter.

WE have stayed in Pasadena quite a few times but this is the best place for us as it balances being out of the way and therefore quiet with a short walk into Downtown Pasadena along the main (safe) E Colorado Boulevard.

The rooms are like any other Ramada. No surprises. No real trimmings or posh bathrooms but great for the price. If you need supplies there's a Von's and other stores at the corner of E Colorado and Sierra Madre (easy to walk - just two blocks).

We always stay here on our last night in LA as it is easy to drive to LAX from here. Breakfast is Ramada average.

One attraction is the mini-pool - and it is mini - but it's great for that last bit of sunbathing before leaving CA!

We'll be back!

Room Tip: Ask for a room away from the stairwells and not on the ground floor.

Beware booking on Priceline which might get you Room 302. Faces noisy Colorado Blvd
Hotel fine except this room's bathroom means you need to stand in the toilet to be in front of the sink. Bad design
Rather full house that day; told all other rooms "blocked"
Probably a Priceline special room.

Also the pillows are made of rocks and bricks and one cannot possibly sleep on any of them.

Room Tip: Avoid anything facing the street
