2.5 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

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.

The Holiday Inn Express was located in a good area of Pasadena that allowed you to get away from the hustle and bustle of the greater LA area. It was very convenient to major roads getting you into and out of LA easily. Breakfast was delicious - I just wish it started a little earlier than 6:30...I had to miss it a few days because I was heading out early. I would recommend this hotel for a good basic base of operations for your LA trip!

Honestly when I booked this hotel I thought I was going to be closer to shops and restaurants etc. But when I arrived I thought I was in for a huge let down! Staff was very helpful and all were very nice- my room was clean and the complimentary breakfast was quite good! I forgot a toothbrush and comb-they provided both immediately. So all made up for the few gripes I had which were: Location-not where I had in mind but still very close to where I wanted to be. View from my room- a "run down" home with a bunch of junk piled in the yard. I would stay at this hotel again and recommend it highly!!

We've stayed here many, many times and loved it each time.

Went to Pasadena for a business trip. Hotel was outside of Old Pasadena and downtown, but it only took a few minutes to get there. Good parking at the hotel. Good breakfast. Clean spacious rooms.

Everything about this hotel and its services, comfort, and cleanliness is great. The rooms are quiet, spacious - and again very clean. The only thing to know is that it is located in South Pasadena about 4 miles from the center of Old Pasadena. so one cannot just walk out the hotel front door and be in tourist-land.

Consistently good, location perfect for my business meetings in Santa Anita.
