Spent one night. Clean and spacious rooms. Very standardized chain so you know what to expect. Having stayed in other ones across the country this one is above average. Breakfast is standard. Has free parking You need a car to go downtown.

We like this chain because it is reasonably priced and clean. The bed was comfortable. We like to have a nice breakfast and coffee in the morning. Their fare is nothing fancy but does the trick. This one is freeway close with plenty of restaurants nearby.

I had a few extra days in California so I wanted to go where it was warm. That took me to Pasadena! Beautiful area.

I stayed here for a few nights, and found it to be clean and quiet. My room was separated by the bathroom into two spaces - one by the entrance which had a desk and sofa with a tv on a dresser, and one toward the outside with the bed, side tables, and another tv on a dresser. A small...

Do you like to: • Swim with friends until midnight? • Party in your room until 2 in the morning? • Wake up at 6:30 am and stomp around your room for an hour until breakfast? If ‘yes’ to any of these questions, then this is the perfect hotel for you. If management calls your room or knocks on your...

I've to say the rooms are a bit small, I could nearly not unfold my hard shell suitcase. The internet speed is slow and I had much troubles with being disconnected and reconnected. Don't think about it to use it with skype or other VoP software. For surfing the web and doing your mails it's just good enough. The staff...

From the helpful receptionist to the great bedroom and the hearty breakfast, we couldn't ask for more. Excellent room lighting (which is so hard to find) and amazing bathroom lighting with a huge mirror is so helpful. Also, we always struggle to have plugs in a room, or they are in awkward places...well this room had two in the bedside...
