“HORRIBLE - DON'T STAY HERE”
Reviewed 28 March 2013

We chose this hotel online, it looked clean, and the pictures looked good, but when we arrived, it was a totally different story!!!! First of all, we made a reservation on the phone, and when we arrived in CA and called, he couldn't find our reservation - we flew in from another state; he said to come on and he would make sure we had a room. When we got to the hotel, the price we were quoted was not what we were charged. Also, the hotel is in a horrible part of town, and there is no eating places close by, except for "Rick's", which was a good deal, but not open late, so we didn't get dinner the first night we were there. Also the rooms were FILTHY!! I was scared to walk around without shoes and the sheets/beadspread were old - rooms looked like they haven't been updated since the 70's!!!!!! Also, every time we cut off the TV, porn would come up ------not good!!! I would NEVER stay here again, or recommend it to anyone else.

My boyfriend and I just spent a few days there - the rooms were adequate..nothing to complain about but nothing to rave about either, however it was definitely decent value for the price. The last 2 days of our visit we had a room with a jacuzzi and that was enjoyable. But what I would like to remark about is that the 2 housekeepers we encountered were VERY nice...VERY "customer service" oriented. Good job ladies.

We wanted to stay near rosé bowl game/parade. We had booked 2 rooms for 3 nights. First thing we noticed none of the beds had blankets! The manager said it was So. Cal and therefore we didn't need blankets. The king room smelled like old cigarettes and mold. Manager told us it was fresh paint.(it wasn't). The parking lot is full of riff raff. Loud music and very hard to rest. In our queen room, we were awoke by the sound of water streaming down our wall! Saturating carpet under our feet. Eeeewww! At 4am we were moved to another room. Then when we wanted to check out to get a different hotel, he would not give us our $$ for the 2 nights we didn't even stay!
Please, take ur money elsewhere in Rosemead. There are many nicer,cleaner places to stay.

Room Tip: Don't waste your $$. It's a place people stay for 2 hours! Discussting!

We came for the Rose Bowl & reviews seemed ok. Turned down beds to find there were no blankets & hairs on the sheets. Mgr said in SoCal they don't use blankets but gave us 3. Riff raff all night in parking lot-very loud. There was water coming thru ceiling into bathroom area (even got a pic of it) Mgr refused to comp us nights we did not stay as we refused to stay in the disgusting environment. Don't waste your time.

Was traveling for business, neither of us had been to LA before. When we got here, it seemed safe, conveniently close to the highway and the parking lot was nice. I know that seems inconsequential, but I've realized that if a business owner cares about sidewalks and parking lots, it probably means they care a little more. We paid a little over $60 for the night, which was a steal! The room was great, although the bathroom a little small. I would ABSOLUTELY stay there again.

Room Tip: We stayed on the ground floor, on the parking lot side. It was a little noisy but nothing that woke...

We needed a place to crash on our way back from our 7 year wedding anniversary in solvang ca found this in our price range and it said Jacuzzi tubs so we checked it out. The check in staff was very nice and it turned out our standard room didn't have a Jacuzzi tub. I told him it was our anniversary and he upgraded us! He even let us pick our room which were totally different. The size of our tub could fit 4 people it was huge. Bed was clean and comfy. Had a great nights sleep after driving all day. Checkout was easy he said next time we should try the spa room. Will definitely come back!

We were just there for the 2012 Rose Bowl. The staff was extremely helpful in assisting us as to how to get around town. They went out of their way to see that we were helped. It's not the Grand Hyatt by any means, but it was clean and quiet.
Rick's Burgers across the street had great meals for a very reasonable price. Very good food, and old fashioned customer service.
