Stayed for 12 days They were very helpful and fast with check in especially a late one They listen to your needs and help you with things you need

The pool and jacuzzi are perfect The staff are super friendly There’s also a taco truck outside until 2AM I enjoyed my stay there and will most definitely keep using holidays Inn when I’m in LA

Rob F.

Service is incredibly slow It was very difficult to get anything sent up to the room or have our room serviced The fitness center did not have any type of cleansing products for days

When I asked for them in the morning I was told that the cleaning staff wasn’t in until later in the morning…so, basically, a dirty gym every morning during a pandemic Very poor

Candice Delgado

It is a hotel It has beds, bathrooms, pillows etc They no longer come to your room daily and refill towels/soaps or clean your rooms

They will come in on the 5th night However, you can ask the front desk to replenish your towels/soaps as you leave for the day They will not come into your room while you are thereTheir breakfast is available a la carte Very expensiveThey have about 8-10 couches in the lobby, random hotel tables, it is a very strange set upLots of homeless near the property Every morning when we left there was a homeless person sitting in their courtyard The carpet in the hallways is wrinkled up, be careful when you walk so you don’t tripOverall, it’s a bed AC is cold, shower is hot Nothing more, nothing less Our family will not be staying here in the future Lots of options available

Small run down room A disclaimer, we booked through Hotels Tonight and this may be the reason we got the room we got I did peek in open doors and there are nice sized rooms with porches

The positive: friendly people good breakfast and not bad location However: No hot water, lukewarm showers and gave up on hot water from sink TV lost the cable signal The windows had tape on them staying “do not open” Cracks in bathroom walls and ceiling Tiny metal baker’s rack next to pedestal sink so no where to put toiletries The lotion and body wash appeared partially used No parking when we arrived back at 10 pm Traffic noise which may have have to do with room location on corner We were excited about coming to this place from the photos and reviews, so we were sad with our experience

Daniel Remler

Absolutely wonderful and charming Bed and Breakfast nestled a bit up the mountainside with great views of South Pasadena and well beyond

Incredibly excellent cooking for breakfast every morning — coffee is top notch and there’s tea too A 3-story “Craftsman” style house where every room is great Piano and bar in lobby area Walk up 1 or 2 floors at most Quiet

FFC Inc

Beautiful views with a warm and relaxing ambiance The original historic details of the estate offered additional charm and intrigueThe area is peaceful with restaurants & shopping nearby – no need to hassle with traffic

The breakfast room is lovely The omelette served with fresh fruit and toast was absolute perfection!Photos are of room #1 at sunset

I have to say the location and amenities are good But service is below expectationThe room does not have hair dryer

We went to and called the front desk to request one, the front desk asked us to check closet every time, though we have already checkedAt the time I’m writing the review, the hair dryer is still not delivered after 45 min, and my hair is already dryHonest advice: consider bringing your OWN hair dryer if you don’t have a lot of time waiting them to deliver to your room

jiggbury

Love the location and especially love the design of the hotel and the new hotel smell that radiates throughout the property! It unfortunately also came with new hotel problems! Namely the pools and workout equipment For some reason the pool didn’t have enough chlorine in it and to the point the employee had to close it manually with no closed sign Workout equipment also didn’t turn on and using the weight machines felt like they were about to pop and break gears any moment

At least the room was a lot better with fast wifi and very comfortable beds and sheets! And even a bidet!Checking was very easy with the person popping into existence as soon as you approach the desk!

ShawntéAshley Lewis

I’ve stayed at this property a few times… Every time, the rooms; (cleanliness and comfort) are a 9/10, restaurant food, front desk Representatives; and even their security over exceeded my expectations! No matter the tone of day, checking in is always a breeze, the young ladies/gentlemen at desk are always a delight…One particular evening though; i checked in rather late after work, and had the pleasure of having Joshua check me in… Joshua went far past above and beyond w/his Marriott way of handling things… Thank you Joshua for making me feel happy to have come back, because of service like Joshua, I remain Marriott Loyal!🙌🏾♾🙏🏾

This place has gone downhill in just 2 years Updated on May 1st 20221

The room I was given was on the 4th floor after asking the clerk Originally it was 2nd or 3rd with loud neighbors just a good guess since this property fits that standard2 The room smells very old3 I think they actually remodeled one room to the newer style Holiday Inns (that they actually use in pictures) My room is very old compared to rooms at other Holiday InnsThese rooms are very dark from 2000-20064 WARNING! EXTREMELY HIGH DEPOSITS HEREA This motel authorizes $15000 to your credit/or debit card here above the price of the room, and taxB The authorization will take 10 business days to be removed *Check your account to be sure the property doesn’t post the charge to your account rather than release it after 10 long business daysC The average Holiday Inn authorizes anywhere from $1000 per night, to $3000 per night Anything above $5000 is outrageous for a motel chain Holiday Inn is a motel chainThis is unfair to the leisure, or business travelerI would not recommend this property unless you get a very cheap price under $7500 The property again is very old, the hallways are old, the carpets are old, and the rooms smellI never can understand how a Holiday Inn justifies authorization to a guests credit/or debit card for $150 when this is a motel, not a hotel that has room serviceStay somewhere else I will never stay here againI happened to be unable to cancel my stay due to using points to stay hereAlways call the motel in advance to verify the depositIt’s funny, the more I travel for work, the worse the Holiday Inn’s get From noise, fights, weed, loud parties, and homeless people It’s very sadSleeping in my company car seems like a much better choice then this smelly propertyI have requested that my company allow my team to stay at a better brand IHG is horrible

Philip George

This hotel is the worst one I have ever stayed 1 the rooms are very very old and smells bad too

2 the environment looks very dirty probably because it’s very old, and it still looks very dirty no matter how you clean 3 the service at front desk needs a lot of improvement, they told one thing yesterday and totally forgot it today Be away from such a bad hotel if you want to have a good night

Gorav Vig

Bad customer service at front desk Reserved 4 nights with points, however on last day front desk told me I have to pay for last day Some confusion happened, however front desk did not help or care to help

Next day, I talked to manager and she did not seem to care about bad customer expierience either Never want to stay in a place where employees don’t care about customer service

Bruce Parks

We were very happy with our stay here Our room and kingbed were comfortable, and there was ample furniture (even a regular size table and two chairs) to spread our stuff out on Great bathroom – Jet blast toilet (no clogging!) and super clean (tile grout and tub caulk were bright white, no mold or other issues)

Room was relatively quiet though highway noise could be heard due to location Very friendly staff (kudos to Jody in the breakfast room for her cheerful greeting and overall attentiveness) We’re on a cross country drive and this was one of the best hotels in its class that we’ve stayed at

Laura Corbin

Better than the Best Western right next to it but not worth the price They do take AAA though for a discount Bad location but had to be there for work

Definitely not a vacation spot but very good for what was needed Room had a microwave, mini fridge, two comfortable beds, AC, a coffee maker, hair dryer in the bathroom, l It’s of light and curtains for night and a nice TV Staff was great and catered to a wake up call

Craig Wallace

Very comfortable rooms with excellent service overall The only reason why I did not give 5 stars is because when we checked in the room had not been cleaned properly There was spilled rice on the carpet and a light bulb missing in a lamp

This was promptly fixed but it makes one wonder about attention to detail as this is not a cheap hotel For the rest of our stay the housekeeping was excellent We found the valet service quite fast and enjoyed the restaurant for breakfast

Aron Hughes

If you are visiting the LA area and are looking for a safe and comfortable stay than this is a solid optionYou are going to get the amenities that you need (unless you need dry cleaning on Memorial Day weekend)The rooms were standard with a mostly clean facilities

The bed and pillows were not the most comfortableStaying here requires you to Valet park your car every time which can get annoying if you are in and out like we wereThe restaurant serves basics for high prices and it would be beneficial to go out for breakfast or dinnerAlthough they state the coffee cart is open at 6, we were unable to get coffee in the morning before heading to DisneylandMy suggestion would be stay here if you need a comfortable and affordable option

Lauree martin

This Hilton might be the worst Hilton you can stay at The hotel is loud, dirty, and has homeless people hanging out inside The staff is some of the rudest people I have ever experienced at any hotel

The rooms are old, dirty, and small; you can hear everything outside your room all night The breakfast that was once free now is not, the valet is expensive, and it takes about 45min to get your car I’ve had better experiences at a Motel 6 Save your time and money and stay anyplace but here

This place is freaking NICE I stayed here on New Years Eve and there was a DJ in the lobby The music was fun and the atmosphere was fun

They only have valet parking so you’re going to have to tip the valet but you don’t have to pay for parking so that’s nice This is by far the nicest hotel I’ve ever stayed at The room was spotless and really nice inside

Chandra Watkins

What a beautiful hotel I got a great price on the room (maybe because they haven’t been open for very long) The racetrack is directly across the street, but I drove there because the walk was too far for me because you have to walk across the parking lot

Hotel is close to everything! We had a great time and will return to try out the restaurant on-site The room was spacious and the mountain views were spectacular I want to try the city view side next time Highly recommend this location!

Wesley

Very nice, new hotel with a wonderful view of the mountains and the race track Service was top notch and the food was exquisite You gotta try the kale pasta

They also comped the $27 valet charge because I spent money on dinner and they gave me a $36 credit on breakfast because I’m lifetime Titanium elite! A must stop in Arcadia during racing season! I’ll be back

I was pleasantly surprised by this hotel! Rooms were spacious and clean, and the bed was comfortable I always wipe down rooms with Clorox wipes, and I was really pleased to have all my wiped come away clean! Water pressure was great, and the AC worked perfectly I was staying while my SO was at Alhambra Hospital and was happy with how centrally located hotel is to the hospital, stores and food

And their free breakfast was fantastic!!! Thank you for a great stay!

Beth Franklin

I was having trouble finding a hotel that would accommodate an early morning meeting I would be having via Zoom I was traveling with my family and didn’t want to wake them up by taking it in my room After looking into multiple hotels in the area, this was the first one that told me I could use a conference room without any issues even though it would be just myself using the room

The staff was super helpful (dealt with multiple staff members) and friendly the entire stayThe beds are comfortable and the rooms are “roomy” 😁 The only semi-issue I had was that the room wasn’t completely clean, but it was clean enough

Brandon Ford

The rooms were small, but super clean and well kept The location is PERFECT and there are very many good restaurants, bars, freeways, coffee shops, places to shop, etc

in the area The staff was super accommodating and said “hello” or “good morning” whenever you went bye They had drinks, snacks, and beer available for you downstairs Had a good breakfast and coffee in the morning Nice lounge area to chill if you needed to be out of your room or a place to eat your own food TV’s were accessible as well I wish they would return to regular room service Scheduling I’m advance can be a pain, but it’s easy to work with them on that

Eydie C.H

This was my second visit booked a room for 5 days as I was a guest here In August 2021 for about 4 days Things changed a bit and mostly had to do with my allergies to dogs I felt like perhaps they should have a separate area are floor for dogs Management showed some understanding but besides the dogs I felt that the hotel could use some sprucing my carpet was stained and the Aggie of the property was beginning to show

The bed was comfy and staff was friendly Location was good because you could walk to Metro!

The breakfast was delicious (the bar with omelettes and Belgian waffles? yes, absolutely!) Even the parking attendants were nice The hotel is located close to all the places we wanted to visit Griffith Park is very close The sunsets are amazing!

We had the perfect stay Everywhere we walked was a photo op The bridge for the family wedding photo was on point

We were there for a wedding and it was 5 star stay Everyone went out of their way to see that we had anything we wanted The wedding location was beautiful It is historic and every detail is well appointed The reception was grand Great dinner, the desert table was second to none and the band was perfect They knew how to play while we ate then had the perfect song list for dancing NO rolling on the river or we are family cheesy tunes Sign of a great band Afterwards we had a beautiful spot to catch up before going to our room and sending up for a late night bite with room service Our room was classically beautiful a tad small but it is a really old hotel We’ll be back!

Shanta Marie

Stylish and refined in its lusciouness… well kept, well manicured with charming gardens, excellent service and services Spa was fab!And get this, the power went out in the area in the middle of my massage and they calmly and sweetly brought in candles to finish and comped me the massage And had backup power so we still had basics

Very nice experience that could have been uncomfortable otherwise

Robert Fan

Very typical Embassy Suites experience, albeit the room I had during my stay could have been better maintained One of the towel hooks was loose and the bathtub drain could neither be stopped so as to fill the tub nor easily kept fully open so that water wouldn’t pool while taking a showerAlso the breakfast lacked an omelette bar, which was mildly disappointing

The free drinks during the “happy hour” were limited to two from a very small selection The only beer was bud lightOtherwise, service was great and the hotel is conveniently located near restaurants and shops and easy to access for transportation

Benicio Navaira

The rooms are spacious, big beds There is a small safe, and refrigerator The rooms have a better build, you don’t hear other people in the next room as loudly

As other hotels The staff was very friendly, and helpful they knew when to talk to you And when you don’t expect to be bothered It’s a good location close to stores and places to restaurants It’s also well guarded, people that have no business being here, stay off the property If you’re worried about safety, it’s very safe

Rick Sch

Hotel was nice, and clean AC really struggled to keep room cool, didn’t seem to be pushing much air And not sure why they only have 3 luggage cards in such a large hotel as almost everyone was commenting on why this was an issue for the outing guests

Other than that food Good Pool good, would come back if those 2 areas improve as wasn’t bad otherwise

I’m only giving one star because I can’t give zero My entire stay at this hotel was terrible from start to end When we first arrived we were given a room that was not cleaned

We walked in and the room was turned upside down The new room we were given was across from a gas station so it was loud all night We were told we have to request 24hrs prior for our room to be cleaned or towels I scheduled for fresh towels and never received them When I called to inquire I was told we were never added to the list The rooms were poorly light The air conditioner also broke in the middle of the night All of these combined made the hotel stay bad However the icing on the cake was when someone came into my room without permission Our suitcases were ransacked Personal items pulled out Jewelry gone through and $100 stolen I immediately reported this to the front desk A “report” was taken and I was told to expect a follow up call Saturday When I called to follow up the manager on duty had no idea of my complaint and I now I have to wait until Monday for the general manager to investigate The hotel employees are thieves and the management is awful A trip ruined by their lack of service Never go here unless you want to be robbed!

Ty W

Highly recommend this location Then only reason for loosing a star is no real blankets and the hours for cafe etc are not the best Great staff , nice facility and great location

Some things are really dated but understand that with the way things are resources are limited We have stayed multiple times and will definitely be back especially because we get to bring our fur baby with us and the great restaurants, bars and shops walking distance away Highly recommend

Stephanie S

1st room we were given has wet red spots all over the carpet Looked like they tried cleaning it but it was really wet still The ac was horrible and the room was just dirty looking

We asked for a different room and that room was great Not sure why they still book people in a dirty room with no ac when they have others available Also had to get the bill adjusted because they charged for parking when the site we booked on said free parking Pool is not as amazing as pictures make it out to be BUT great location within walking distance to lots of restaurants

Staff was trying to be friendly but didn’t succeed I did not get the feeling that we were taken seriously and every question we had was annoying for the staffTwo examples: The towels at the pool were empty so my friend went downstairs to reception The ‘help’ she got was the note that there would be a rack with towels Obviously the rack was empty and we were lucky to have house keeping running around on the same floor and got towels from themSecond example: House keeping had to be requested 24h in advance We didn’t get informed about this at the check in but okay This is not something unusual for the US We stayed in total for 4 nights and after 2 nights we wanted at least fresh towels So we scheduled an appointment for the next day However, when we got back we only found a notice on the floor saying that housekeeping wasn’t possible due to high demandThis frankly is unacceptable and impudent After all, the ‘rent’ per night is fairly highWith better service I’d rate the facility much higher

We stayed last night, using a free night with our Bonvoy points Good location near freeway and plenty of restaurants to walk to Our room was clean and spacious

Nice kitchen area with working appliances THANK YOU for being dog friendly Our dog adjusted nicely and the employees were very nice to him (and us!) Even gave him a treat at the front deskThe breakfast was very good and there’s nice areas to sit The lady working that area that morning was super friendly and made sure everyone was doing well She’s awesome!Only complaints:• thermostat was a bit confusing Even with instructions We got it working but it was very low strength to cool the room- breakfast ended a bit early (9am)- pull out couch bed was very uncomfortable We also heard other guests complaint about it

This Residence Inn in Pasadena is a nice hotel for both short and extended stays The room that we stayed in was clean and had no issues with it The staff were nice and accommodating with requests that you may have

The breakfast is still a “grab and go” type of breakfast due to COVID but they do have ready-made oatmeal with all the toppings you want, which is great The giant chess set on site is rather fun to play with and the pool is typical of a Residence Inn pool – which is located outdoors, 2nd floorAll in all, a nice stay and will definitely be back to visit

Customer service and safety! I felt very safe in this hotel compared to other hotels in Pasadena Also, the room was clean and spacious, and the amenities were excellent The bigger reason for my rating is the customer service

Everyone was very pleasant and helpful The staff at Charlie’s Bar including Randy, Ashley, Rosie, Carlos, Adam, and Raul were very, very, very accommodating and friendly The registration desk employees were so nice! I felt comfortable and they were all so pleasant Thank you!

The beds are very comfortable It was so easy to get in and out of this hotel Its practically in the Pasadena Civic Center and right across the street from the Paseo Shoppes and restaurants on Colorado Blvd

I was also pleased with staff member Brady Brady was extremely accommodating and he goes the extra mile to ensure top professional service We enjoyed the pool area although there is no jacuzzi 🙁 The pool is slight heated and towels are provided We will definitely return later for another stay

Stayed in this hotel about two weeks ago and it was a great hotel Its proximity to the Convention Center made it an ideal option, and the quality of the room was solid As an ex-maintenance worker, the room checked out well

Only complaint would be a subpar exhaust fan in the bathroom Moving on to service, Ivan was wonderful He was extremely patient and helpful with my aging father in answering questions and accommodating our needs Would definitely come back to this hotel if I’m in the area needing a place to stay
