Great service and friendly reception staff. Nicely renovated rooms, with funky modern decor. Close to restaurants and cafes. Excellent prices for rooms. We were able to walk 100m to a nice Japanese/Korean restaurant for Dinner - O'seyo.

Location was perfect. Easy access to buses to down town. Walking distance to metro, KFC, Denny's ,restaurants, Vons,etc. Room was amazing with huge TV !! Was so glad to have microwave for midnight snacks. Only problem was no place / hooks to hang out wet towels.

My boyfriend and I needed a staycation if you will, since we live only about 20 minutes away. This was a last minute booking as well (I think I booked this at 4pm Friday for that night), but it worked out well. The hotel is super cool, a modern twist on a funky 50s motel.

Slickest Hotel--amazingly modern and high end refurb, and for such a DEAL! I couldn't get over the quality finishes and amenities. It's far fancier than the Standard and other hotels like that in Hollywood. They must spend a lot on the decor too! Really, really high end look, feel, and super comfortable--can't believe how cheap the rooms are too, best... More

Coolest Jacuzzi Suite I have ever stayed in. Spend the extra money for the jacuzzi room, totally worth it!! Front desk person would always smile and ask if I needed anything. Comfortable bed, great wifi, and decent room prices.

Came in for weekend one day stay booked on Hotels.com after reading reviews. This was apparently formerly a rundown, nondescript Knights Inn until an extensive remodel completed in July 2016, so disregard poor Tripadvisor reviews prior to that date. The result is a 2 story courtyard motel (outside access for those of you who are nervous about such things) with... More

Driving through Pasadena we stumbled upon this Motel. It is a motel not a hotel, the exterior shows that. It is two levels and you enter each room from the outside. It has been recently renovated and the interior shows that. The rooms are spacious and have a nice seating area with retro looking table and chairs. It is all... More

This was probably the worst lodging experience of my life!

Now it's a Knights Inn but it should be called the Brokedown Inn. The first room I was given was filthy!... More
