Recent guest reviews

The only negative thing I can say is that the alarm clock didn't work and the coffee machine malfunctioned on my last day there... Apart from that it was excellent all around

Enjoyed the stay. Room felt homie 2 nd time I’ve stayed here and will continue to

where i want to be when i need to be. staff friendly & helpful. my new family

The hotel is ok , you have free breakfast and free parking but the area is not nice , is between car dealership. , whe thought it was going to be near the nice area of Pasadena

The staff were friendly and professional. The room was clean, well stocked, and very comfortable. We've stay here before and will again, esp since their renovations.

We just stayed one night but it provided all the comfort we needed. Quiet and clean at a decent price. Kids enjoyed the breakfast.

book through orbitz for 2 beds room. when we got there say there, we were told only 1 bed avaiable. Say book through 3rd party, will be no garentee.

Recently renovated property is an excellent value for the area. Breakfast area is much more spacious. Beds and bedding are good quality.

clean hotel and good location. A little too expensive. breakfast is included.

Room was just fine. Breakfast was definitely above average for the price point. Healthier choices, including greek yogurts. Pancake machine was awesome. I have no trouble with the section of Colorado Blvd (East Pas.) that the hotel is on, but I rated its location lower just because I was working at JPL, and the morning traffic on the 210 is annoying. This IS NOT the hotel's fault, nor are the generally high prices of hotels in the Pasadena. There are of course many cheaper possibilities on Colorado Blvd, but you takes your chances. I knew with H.I.E. I would get a good, clean room with a comfortable bed.

I chose the Holiday Inn for its proximity to the Huntington Library. It was very convenient to drive there. The staff was very helpful in helping us get our bearings. The room was clean. The only downside was the noise that the air conditioner made. It is quite loud. Otherwise, it was very good stay.

I booked 2 rooms for my family. We attended 50th wedding anniversary. Hotel was near our venues. Staff was pleasant and accommodating. I love booking Holiday Inn for the price and free breakfast!

This hotel meet its intended purpose for a last minute stay. The room was clean and beds were ok.. Parking in the front was tight if u came back late but other than that non factor.. I would stay here again, but book in advance to get the best rate..

Great hotel to stay at. Will be staying at this hotel again

Holiday inn is proving that it will be my best choice for every quick visit especially to LA. Clean, comfort and relaxing. I will be always my choice. The rooms are clean and nice, the hotel is in a great area and really recommended.

Had a comfortable stay. worth for money ! Provides water bottle at reception on arrival

Great Value and close to freeway. Very clean and nice staff.

I have stayed here 3 times in last 2 years. Great ;location. Staff goes above and beyond. well supplied and diverse breakfast bar.

Hotel staff was nice and accommodating. A/c was really noisy, but they did warn me in advance.

Location is in the east side of Pasadena, so a few miles to the major spots in Pasadena. Great staff, especially front desk that was very inviting and offering to assist with anything. The free breakfast provided is extensive. Room is fairly standard but had couch with bed pullout and refrigerator/microwave. King bed was comfy. Easy parking off street and many stores nearby including good sushi a few feet away. The pool temp could be a bit warmer and hot tub a tad cooler. The shower heat/cool knob is a bit wacky and could be simplified. Price was about the same as other similar hotels in the general area, and would recommend the hotel for an easy stay.
