Not a Hotel

Posted May 18, 2015
Pros: Nothing
Cons: Truth in advertising. Cleanliness
Location: The location is not in the best part of Colorado Blvd.
This is a motel - under renovation. The renovation construction was not disclosed to us until we arrived. Wifi was so weak in our room that it was unusable. No water cups in the room. The cups and the used shampoo were not replaced. A dirty smudge on a switch plate was there when we arrived and still there when we left 4 days later. The cable box stopped working and my husband climbed up on top of the desk to reach behind the TV to recycle the power to get it going again. Cards for opening the door didn't work and twice we had to go down to get new ones. New ones worked if we tried 5 or 6 times. In short, this is not worth what they charge and IT IS NOT A HOTEL

Hotel Le Reve is a good find in Pasadena CA

Posted Mar 30, 2015
Pros: Room was quiet and pleasant, good beds. The staff ensured that we were greeted. Furnishings are Mediterranean.
Cons: A vertical 24" grab bar at the shower/tub entrance for safety. Lighting at the vanity was horrible, they need to change the lamps to 3400K.
Location: Getty museum and Descanso Gardens were wonderful.
Breakfast was particularly good compared to other hotels, chef was present to ensure we were taken care of with good food and great coffee, and his warmth and wit were priceless.

On par with a Motel 8 in a bad neighborhood

Posted Mar 27, 2015
Location: So close to the freeway that the room rattles when trucks go by, but still so far away from downtown that you have to get on the freeway to get there.
Hotel is terribly outdated. The lobby has been touched up with gaudy furniture and cheap drapes to make it look newer, and that is why most of the pictures of the property are of the lobby. The rooms themselves have not been updated in a decade. Tiles are missing in the bathroom, walls and doors have nail holes throughout. The pool has a grand total of three chairs. Hotel is directly on the off ramp for the freeway so the windows rattle when big trucks go by.

Very convenient for the Metro (Sierra Madre Villa)

Posted Mar 24, 2015
Pros: remarkably quiet, staff friendly
Cons: A PC in the front lobby/breakfast room; meals other than breakfast.
Location: Very convenient for the Metro (Sierra Madre Villa station) and within reasonable walking distance of a number of restaurants, a supermarket, a Target,
I stayed 4 nights and got in contact with old friends (the reason for the visit to Pasadena) nearby and 15 blocks away. I used one of the about 5 "good" restaurants nearby, MacDonalds, Target and the Pasadena Sandwich Company.

broken down stay

Posted Feb 21, 2015 on Hotels.com
Service was good, people were nice. The room was run down and it smelled bad. Furniture was broken along with tile in the shower being broken and the shower leeked. The bed was comfortable and the sheets were clean, however there no mattress cover only a sheet.
