Pretty good experience, convenient location near free way exit. Room was clean enough, beds are comfortable. The only problem I had was tab curtain, no matter how I closed it, it leaked the water on the floor. Also shower head was not
Overall good experience, will use this hotel again when needed to stay in Pasadena.
The hotel was average on the whole. I felt it is a bit less value for the money spent. Some of the reasons
1. Hotel exteriors are not that clean
2.The keys they gave did not work for most of the times
3.I could not call long distance calls from
the room. I was ready to pay but the management could not provide a solution
4. Breakfast timings are too narrow to make it on a weekday. Starts @8 and ends @9.30. That is not convenient
Our room was clean, the beds comfortable. The front desk people was so helpful. Everything was excellent from check-in through check-out. The only issue was the exhaust.. It probably needs replacing as it was loud. We will definitely stay in this
Hotel features (5 = best, 1 = worst):
Short drive from hotel
If you have appointments in North Hollywood or Glendale or even the Glendale Galleria, this is the place to stay. You are at the center of these above-mentioned places.
We decided to stay in Pasadena because it was recommended by lonely planet. They were right, compared to other parts of LA, we felt pretty safe as tourists in Pasadena, also great asian food in Rosemead which is really close by. We did grocery
shopping in VONS also really close to the hotel. Room was clean and quiet. They did have a problem with internet on one of the nights and the staff did not know how to fix it, apart from that our stay was good. Would visit again.
We needed a place near Pasadena to spend the night on a recent trip through Southern California. Chose Best Western Pasadena Royale for it's price and proximity to Old Town. The room was incredibly clean and spacious-- much more so than we had
expected. Plus, the shower had plenty of water pressure, something you rarely find in the water conserving state of California! Breakfast was plentiful. In addition to the standard pre-wrapped muffins and coffee, there was fresh bread for toasting, make your own waffles and a variety of cereals and juices.
Sheets thin... noise from cleaning driveway, however, did shift to a different area when I called front desk
Breakfast no meat
room seemed like a coffin with curtain closed. have a suite last stay, much better
When I checked in on wed jan. 23 I was excited. however the front desk clerk was not. I ordered a NON smoking room for 5 nights. The gentleman told me it was a Smoking room. I said No he said Yes and this went on and on. He told me about the small
print stuff like ifs and ors.He did not have any more Non Smoking rooms. NO COMPASSION. In fact it was like he was enjoying it. My excitement turned to aggravation. Then he shook me down by offering a Non smoking suite for $10 more a night ($50). After heated argument he settled on 20 bucks more for the stay. The trip began ugly and was also on my mind throughout . You gave me a good deal but if I get this again I'll pay a little extra at another site. Oh and the parking lot was less than half full at midnights
