Stayed two nights, used my Wyndham points so was able to stay for free. The room was clean, comfortable and upgraded. My only disappointment was the shower. The interior of the shower showed some aging, as the walls were peeling it's protective coating making it a bit slippery. Also a homemade taped sign in the shower seemed a bit cheesy....

This was the first time visit to Pasadena. I picked this hotel to meet up with my friend and go to see the concert. Our room was on the top floor corner room, when I opened the door, wow,I didn't expect living room and decent size kitchen, also there are two big televisions, one in the living room area and...

Check in and Check out was quick and easy. Elevator helped as I had a lot of luggage. Just a bit out of the way from shops, business centers, etc.

Room decor was updated, clean and comfy beds, with good storage space for luggage and hanging clothes. Spacious bathroom, but drainage for shower stall needs work. . .it took nearly an hour to drain from a five-minute shower. Corners of bathroom floors could be cleaner. TV channels selection could be better, and remote control needs to be replaced. Location is...

Initially I has asked for a group/team rate, but they didn't offer as the manager wasn't available. I asked the same thing during checkin, the agent said, he will contact the manager and have them call me. Never got a call, and I didn't care to keep pestering for $20 difference. Rooms are fine, but beds are not comfortable and...

Was extremely happy with our room. The front desk was nice and friendly. Breakfast was good. Nice location. Parking was a bit crowded at night. My only complaint is that the towels felt like sandpaper. Other than that everything exceeded my expectations. Would definitely stay again.

We bounced around a lot of different hotels between San Diego and Pasadena on a recent trip. HoJo's Pasadena was the best! Orlando was especially helpful - he is a Gold Star employee!!

To visit LA , Howard Johnson at Pasadena is a valuable strategy. The motel is ideally situated just in front of the high school on the Colorado blv, very near Caltech. Moreover this motel offers large and clean rooms.

The hotel is old and dated, but aren't all HoJo's. The owners have made a good effort to update the property, the rooms are clean, and the beds comfortable. Continental breakfast, not so good, but with the diverse ethnic guests staying here, it's hard to stock. Like, who eats a hard boiled for breakfast, or cup noodles? However, the hotel...
