Great One Night Stay

Posted Nov 11, 2014
Pros: Nice check in area, very unique decor. Along with a cute pool/spa area and a sitting area with bistro tables. Free breakfast. Late checkout available.
Cons: Pillows. And some of the furniture could be upgraded, like the office chairs in the rooms are pretty janky and dirty.
Location: Location is good as it is right off the freeway. But is also its downfall as you can hear the lovely freeway while trying to sleep.
I try make the best of every situation, lets be clear of that first. Second, it was one night with my bf who lives 2 hours from me and we arrived around 4:20 :) With that... Hotel Le Reve isn't the best looking hotel with the most elite guests or accommodations but it works great for what you pay. Our room was clean and had a decent tv, clean bathroom and nice sink area. The bed was somewhat comfy but pillows could have been better. We chose the 3rd floor hoping for more privacy but once it was time to crash out we fell asleep to the lovely therapeutic sound of the 210 freeway. Here's the best part about the hotel, complimentary bikes!!!! So awesome. We decided to take the bikes to find some dinner, just about a 5 min bike ride away from the hotel (opposite direction of the car dealerships) we found this awesome shabu shabu place that just opened. In the same little plaza there's also a lovey little liquor store that's sure to enhance any couples night. Middling the hotel and shabu shabu there's also a target to pick up anything else you may need or want. Although our great late night bike ride and awesome dinner had nothing to do with the hotel, they provided the bikes so they made it possible. Bottom line for Couples- Use the bikes, go on an adventure. Enjoy each other, after all that's what you're there for so no need to worry about anything or anyone else.

easy location to Santa Anita track

Posted Nov 3, 2014
I chose this hotel for my weekend attending the breeders cup at Santa Anita. It was incredibly close to the track as well as all Pasadena sites. I was easily able to get to all the best bars and restaurants in old town pasadena in minutes. Parking was an issue at property when it's sold out. You also have noise issues from other people talking outside on balcony in front of room at all hours , it is a motel, not hotel. A plus is the complimentary buffet breakfast which was excellent.

Dirty, Stinky and Run Down

Posted Oct 29, 2014
Pros: The receptionist was very pleasant.
Cons: The smell, cleaning crew and bedding that had holes and stench.
We booked last minute on Expedia because it was close and looked really good in pictures. Upon arriving, the lobby stunk of curry and nag champa. The receptionist was very sweet and professional. She gave us a room and we went in but it smelled of urine and something else. It had stains on the carpet from the restroom. I assume the toilet leaked and the carpet was never properly cleaned. We then asked for another room. That room smelt a but better but still had a strong odor. There were cigarette butts on the balcony, the room was dirty and there were holes in the bedding and sheets. It was completely outdated and needed many repairs and replacement items. They go out of their way to make the reception area and pool look nice when they should be spending more money on their rooms, updating sheets/bedding and paying a housecleaning crew. What a waste of time and money on our part. Glad we found another hotel down the street.

Motel masquerading as a hotel

Posted Oct 6, 2014
This is actually a three story motel: exterior corridors and right next to the highway. Was not very happy with this place, found some bugs in our room and ended up leaving that night to go to a different place. I think that it must be perpetually on sale, because there is no way ANYONE in their right mind should pay full price for a room there.

the man serving breakfast was great!

Posted Oct 1, 2014
Pros: easy to get to and the breakfast man.
Cons: fixing small repairs
Location: I didn't do anything close by the hotel, however, it was right by the freeway which made it easy to get to and easy for my other destinations.
the breakfast room was small, but wasn't crowded. lots of variety of food and the man there serving was excellent! the hotel is just off the freeway, so access was nice and easy. the rooms were clean and comfortable, but showed some age - not bad though.

Buffet

Posted Sep 29, 2014
Cons: Our shower ceiling need to be repainted
Location: Took Uber to old town Pasadena and loved the old part. Next day Santa Anita Race track
The breakfast cook was outstanding and appeared to really enjoy his work and his food reflected it. The facility had a lot of amenities and meet all our needs.
