The hotel is an older property and the wear shows most noticeably in places like the bathroom. However, the furnishings are pleasant. The room was very clean and even smelled clean. The bed was comfortable. The bathroom was good sized with a wide counter. The staff was friendly enough. There was a flat screen TV in the room but the picture wasn't always very sharp. The breakfast area was very cramped and served a very basic breakfast. However, the hotel is right on the route for the Tournament of Roses parade. There are some rooms that overlook the parade route on Colorado Boulevard. They don't have balconies but do have wide windows. We were told these rooms book up 10 to 11 months in advance. Overall, for the price it was a decent place to stay and we would stay there again.
