“A little to loud”
Reviewed March 28, 2013

I stayed overnight recently and will not likely stay again. I motel is convenient to both the convention center (walking distance) and Caltech. We went to both. The check-in process was pleasant and prompt. We arrived early and got one of the "choice rooms" in the corner away from the road noise. The room door and a gap underneath and we were in front of the staircase. All night we heard new arrivals and departures clunking up the stairs. It woke me up even after placing towels over the gap. The morning breakfast was standard but still pleasant. The room appointments were sad and faded but expected for the moderate price. Overall things were clean but I would not return unless I had earplugs.

The pasadena inn was the perfect location for why we were in pasadena, Rooms were clean, bed which i like to rate hotel was perfect. Room had a refig, and microwave, huge screen tv. The only problem we had was our first night. Some unruly guests were making a lot of noise at 3 am. Loud talking, Loud music, when called the front desk was told by the attendant at the front desk she would have them turn down the music. I told her to tell them to turn it OFF. I would not recommend having a room on the bottom floor in the back. That is ,my only complaint. I would stay at the hotel again but make sure room was on 2nd or 3rd floor and not in the back of the hotel. There are also a lot of places to eat around the Inn.

Stayed here to attend an event at Pasadena Convention Centre. 5 minutes walk to Del Mar Metro to get into LA for tours & entertainment (about 40 minutes). Walk to Convention centre and Wholefoods market. Safe and workable without own transport.

I stayed in the Pasadena Inn for ten days in November/December 2012. The purpose of the trip was a family reunion and other members of my family also stayed there. I found the staff, from those in Reception to the cleaners, to be extremely efficient, friendly and helpful at all times. The room was cleaned every single day, and the towels were also replaced on a daily basis. The room was spotless, with loads of sockets and lights. The free Wifi was a real bonus, one that is not available in most other hotels. The breakfast, which was included in the price, was really good too. The Pasadena Inn is in a very central location, close to the main shopping areas and the rail system. I really recommend a stay in this lovely facility to anyone who is in the area. Excellent value for money. The Pasadena Inn is a real Gem.

Pasadena is not a place with a lot of reasonably priced motels. The Pasadena Inn was not our first choice, but the place that was our preference could not get my credit cards to work. Pasadena Inn had no problem. Not cheap, but ok. Our room was the corner room, front side of the motel, looking down the Arroyo Parkway. The room was large, two queen beds. This was just right for our family of 4. The window opened, which was nice. Reasonably quiet. The breakfast was basic, biggest complaint is the breakfast room is smallish and some of the patrons seemed to think it was ok to linger there. So we did not get a seat and had to wait. Pool small. Parking on surface and in underground garage.

Room Tip: Front corner above the restaurant.

As some of the other reviews state, great location, but the noise factor is really bad. We were kept awake from 2:30 to 7:30 with partying neighbors, A call to the front desk slowed it down for about 20 minutes.
Doors opening or closing make a very loud sound. The finally moved us to another room where we could hear the repaving of the parking lot in front of our room.
Front desk people nice but have been schooled in not ALLOWING contact with the manager.
That's all folks, no more of this place for us.

Nice, clean rooms; free parking, breakfast, coffee, and wi-fi; excellent location--close to old Pasadena and the freeway; friendly, helpful staff. We stayed here after a poor experience "upscale" hotel in Long Beach and couldn't have been more pleased. Strongly recommend.
