This place is a gem. You will not think so until you step into the room since the outside is going to be difficult to upgrade. But the room has been nicely re-done in a fun Space-Retro decor. I am a tile grout and calking snob and this bathroom was nicely done. the spacious shower was well assembled.
This place is a great value!

I was on a work trip and found this hotel on the quiet part of Colorado. The rooms were very clean with an interesting design in terms of color.

Perfect place for a business traveler. My trip to LAX the next morning took about 40 minutes.

Management was very poor. The way they conduct business is beyond me or ever. How they continue serving the community of Pasadena. The pictures on other booking sites are very misleading. In addition, the receptionist had Poot customer service skills. She called me hyper when I was just frustrated because I was not allowed to cancel. I was very I happy with the asthetics of the property. It kind of felt like something off a movie in which sex workers meet up with clients there. Which is why we didn’t want to stay there.

My first red flag was when i emailed the hotel prior to check in to find out more information and i did not receive a response. The second was when i called to inquire and was hung up on twice then finally got an extremely rude answer.

Upon arriving at the 'hotel' (motel with some red plastic inappropriately screwed to the front of the furnishings now = hotel, obviously), i was able to check in with ease, 30 minutes before check in time and the man at the front desk was much more pleasant in person. I thought it was going to be ok after all.

Upon entering the room (past the cigarette filled trash cans outside my door), i noticed the room had been updated with a modern twist. Nice idea however, nobody seems to have got the memo that hotel rooms need to be cleaned after every guest, not just paint over the filth once every decade. The walls on the right as i walked in were covered in dirt and had streaks running down them from some sort of liquid.

The bed sheets had stains and looked as if they had seen better days though thankfully, they had been washed. The surfaces around the room were all covered in hand prints and sticky residues. I took the wash cloths from the bathroom and cleaned them before i could begin unpacking and managed to scrape some of the caked on food out of the remote so that i dared use it.

Upon entering the bathroom, i noticed the mirror was cracked and somebody had carved letters into it. The door was covered in toothpaste and other residues that i can only hope were not fluids excreted from another human. The towels were very small and thin but perfect for cleaning a hotel room. I would recommend using the hotel ones for cleaning and bringing your own to take a shower.

On a positive note, the tv has an excellent selection of channels, just make sure you are watching something with plenty of color so you cant see the hand prints and the wifi was very good. There were some nice lights with dimmer switches at the side of the bed which were a nice alternative to lamps. I assume the dollar store extension cable hanging above the door powering who knows what has actually been a fantastic investment.

If you need to sleep and you don't mind listening to your upstairs neighbors using the bathroom and you will be on your way again the next morning, this place is perfect.

The people are nice, rooms are nice but they have more rooms than parking spaces so they take your keys and double park cars. There's $1000 dollars worth of paint damage to my Lexus and that's not good

This was probably the worst lodging experience of my life! Now I stayed at this place once before when it was owned by a nice Chinese couple who would charge $58 (8 being a lucky number in Chinese culture). Now it's a Knights Inn but it should be called the Brokedown Inn.

The first room I was given was filthy! The carpet was black from dirty spots on the table had no chair. I went to the front desk and the snooty girl at the counter gave me room 107. There was no remote control in the room so I had to go back to the front desk to get a remote and after I got it and went back to the room the damn TV still didn't turn on! I looked and there wasn't even an "On" switch on the thing! Air, fan and heat was impossible because the wall unit was unplugged and inoperable. The kmob had fallen off and when I tried to put it back on it wouldn't stay on so I couldn't get it to work.

I wanted to ask for a refund and I realize now that I should have! I woke up the next morning itching on my neck. You guessed it...this place has bed bugs!!

Stay away from this place at all costs. You'll be glad you did!

This remodeled motel lacked electricity during our stay (complete blackout with no air conditioning at 3:00 a.m.), caused me to slip and fall in the bathroom, and was not responsive to any of my emails or in-person complaints.

As someone who’s worked in hotels, when a general manager doesn’t even bother to return your calls after an injury on their property, it’s a huge red flag. Just imagine what else they neglect?

For your own safety, stay somewhere else.

If you are just simply looking for easy check-in, a shower, and bed this is the place. The family running the place is extremely kind and helpful. We mentioned the shower being backed up and he was extremely thankful. They do take CC info in case but no pending holds. It is great if you're looking for somewhere nice, and affordable for the night. They do not have restaurants, food or anything,which is fine. Location is a little sketch but convenient.

By far the worst hotel experience I have ever had. I am a social worker from Illinois in the Chicago area and in all of my 21 years of visiting down and out clients, I have never stepped foot in a room so nasty and disgusting as the rooms offered to me and my guests. I was absolutely horrified when I opened the door to my confirmed "non-smoking" King size room. The smell of smoke and old staleness was overwhelming.

What was supposed to be a once in a lifetime family dream trip to Pasadena to see the Rose Parade was overshadowed by the filth of this hotel. I was traveling with my family and guests and booked and paid for two rooms prior to going inside the rooms. Upon entering the rooms, within 30 minutes, my 20 year old son had changed his flight to leave a day earlier and had secured an Uber ride to LAX. He refused to stay in the filth. Unfortunately, for me and my other guests, we had no choice but to try to make the best of it.

We changed rooms, but the smell was still very present, but at least the black handprint smudge on the wall in the first unit was replaced by what appeared to be dried blood on the bathroom wall. (At least in this unit, the microwave did not have broken knobs and actually worked!) Again after being assured that this was indeed a "non-smoking" room, I noticed a cigarette burn in the comforter. We, along with several other guests that checked in around the same time, felt the need to leave the door open to provide some ventilation in the musty, smoke smelling rooms. I visited their room and was even more horrified when I realized that their room was worse than ours. It was so bad that these total strangers asked to bunk with us!

After calling around trying to determine if there were any available rooms last minute on New Year's Eve, we were informed that everything within a twelve mile radius was booked. I then informed the manager that I would be checking out the following morning, despite having booked two nights. I was informed that there may be a problem with refunding my money. Instead of causing a scene in front of my mother and my other guests, I decided to call Wyndham customer service, as I had booked this hell hotel through them. I was initially told that my money could not be refunded, but after speaking to a manager, I was informed that I could file a complaint, which I did, and my money would be refunded.

At this point, my guests and I decided that the best strategy would be to spend as little time in the room as possible, so we headed out for a movie on New Year's Eve. Prior to returning to the room, however, we stopped by a Target store where I spent $120 on sleeping bags, pillows, pillow cases, sanitation wipes, wash cloths and bath towels. There was no way I was going to sleep under the comforter in this place.

Upon awakening in the morning, trying to prepare for the big parade, I discovered that the hot water worked, but the cold water did not, therefore I was unable to shower and had to quickly wash my face before the hot water became scalding! Also, there was no iron and no continental breakfast, not even a donut, so we had breakfast at the Denny's down the street. We were able to find a Residence Inn near LAX and left immediately after the parade was over having to incur an additional $267 for the night. Hands down...THE WORST HOTEL EXPERIENCE EVER!!!!
