Enjoyed our weekend here back in May. Arlene was the best! She ran the breakfast and was very friendly! Keep her around! Pool was nice and clean, and enjoyed the hot tub. Room we had was clean. I like the location in Pasadena, close to Universal Studios, and Disneyland. Would stay again.

We stayed here over Thanksgiving holidays. This was our first stay at this hotel. I would come back. The room was comfortable. We had a suite with TV in living room as well as bedroom. The breakfast was plentiful and the staff cheerful and helpful.

I booked this reservation through Hotwire, lured in by the teaser: "The last person got the Holiday Inn Express!" Too bad I wasn't the last person. Let me start by saying that the staff were all very friendly and accommodating. And let me acknowledge that, when booking through Hotwire, one risks getting assigned "that room" that nobody else wants. That's...

Very good location for those wishing to visit the Huntington gardens and museum as well as the superb Los Angeles Arboratum in Arcadia. Highway 210 is nearby but traffic noise does not penetrate the rooms. Upgraded motel hiding its age. Great for a couple of nights.

Everything was as good as expected! We come here twice a year, and have been doing so for 8 years. Always upgrading the place. Laundry facility is a big plus. Wish they had an exercise room. Convenient to shopping and dining.

This seemed like a perfectly fine place to spend a night until I was up late working and saw a little critter crawl across the bed. It was a bed bug. I did manage to photograph and trap him under a cup and name him Bartolo (after a scruffy character in The Barber of Seville). I immediately called the front...

Very clean rooms and exterior property. Staff really friendly and helpful. Pillows a little hard, but that is just my preference. Bathroom spotless. Breakfast good and free. Lady running breakfast seems to enjoy her job and was always happy to see you. Free parking. A very pleasant stay and a great value for the dollar.

Counter staff (Jose) are friendly and supportive asking questions and showing interest in your reason for visit. The room was nothing to be wowed by - was a little outdated with blinds that over the heater and a weird smell in the room. Can't complain for the price relative to other hotels on our trip so far. Included breakfast was...

We chose the hotel because of its proximity to Santa Anita Race Track and that it is clean, comfortable and professionally maintained and it satisfied our needs and desires.I have nothing further to say and am building resentment that I have participated in your survey and now you are hassling me about the number of words I have written.

Went there for our anniversary and for going to the breeders cup horse races. We were "upgraded" to a suite... for almost $400 for the night (for the standard room), I expected clean... finished and more than what we got.... especially when we were "upgraded". The bathroom was disgusting... the tile and caulking were in major disrepair. The TV remotes...
