We used Priceline Express Deals, so we just chose the Pasadena area but did not know what hotel we would be staying at until we checked out. However, we were very pleased with this hotel! We stayed for 6 nights at the end of April 2018. The room was nice - we had a king size bed so the room was slightly smaller than a double bed room would be, but it was enough space for us as we weren't in the room much. Our room was about 3/4 of the way toward the corner of the hotel, so the other side of the building blocked the sound of the cars on the road at night. You might be able to hear cars if your room is toward the end of the building near the road, so if you're a light sleeper perhaps request a room toward the corner/inside of the hotel. The free continental breakfast was open at 6am each morning, which was a great time and money saver for us. Had plenty of options to choose from. In all, I would definitely recommend this hotel. It might not be the most glamorous hotel, but it was clean and appeared to have been recently renovated. It was everything that we needed!
As a side note, it was a slight drive to some of the activities we were doing on our trip (Universal, beach, studio tours, Anaheim, etc.). However, we were okay with this and chose to stay further away to save money. We just allowed extra time each morning for the commute. less
