Great place to stay. Front desk staff friendly and helpful. I arranged to check out at noon instead of 11:00. The cleaning crew had difficulty understanding that and kept trying to get into the room. I understood the first interruption but became more agitated after the second. Otherwise, great place to stay.

Excellent customer service! The people from the Front Office were very helpful and accommodating. However, the breakfast menu needs some improvement.

Good place. I'd stay here again if in Pasadena CA. Breakfast was a little lacking and the pool is small. Jacuzzi wasn't working during our stay but I don't use that anyway. Rooms were good and clean came with internet.

The room was great, had a new HD TV with Direct TV, and plenty of HBO and other premium channels. I would recommend it to everyone and it was a great bargain.

Dear Guest,

Thank you for your review. I'm glad that you enjoyed our new DirecTV service. It was installed last month, we had mostly positive feedbacks on it. It was money well spent. We're glad that guests are enjoying it.

Have a great day!

extremely old carpet...but worst thing is that when i checked in, they did not want to take my card. they held an additional $250 cleaning fee in case i was a smoker and made a big deal out of the fact that it would take a day or two to release on my card. There were several people behind me who were also privy to the conversation. I never have any trouble at any of the other hotel chains.. I will never stay at a howard johnsons or any other wyndam properties again.

Dear Guest,

We're sorry you felt this way about our security deposit policy. This is a very common practice in the hotel industry, many hotels in our area charges much high deposit upon check in. We believe our policy is fair to all guests. We've never had any issues with other guests before.

The length of time for a security deposit hold be release back to your account is depending on your card's issuing bank, we have no control over that.

Thank you for your business.

I had to spend a few days in the Los Angeles and San Fernando Valley on personal business and chose this hotel for it's location and price. I was very pleased. Located on Colorado Blvd, just a few blocks from the 210 Freeway, it was easy to move around the city. The hotel had ample parking and was well lit. The staff were friendly and helpful. Room was adequate for my stay, had a flat screen tv, refrigerator, microwave and coffee maker. For the price I was very satisfied. I didn't feel safe staying in some of the valley hotels, but I did feel safe here. I only got coffee from the free breakfast. Not alot of choice, but did have a waffle maker, some bagels and pastries and of course coffee and juice. I would stay her again.
