Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by The Mysterious Guest Worth Extra
I don't usually stay here because the price is among the higher (can I say that?) but if the other good one on Colorado isn't available, this is my second choice. It's a great place, hidden in the back of a strip mall with good parking. The interior is very high class and perfectly kept. There are computers you can use by the front desk.
The rooms are comfortable with high class, well kept furnishings and bathrooms. The TV access the night I was there was superior.
In conclusion, expensive but worth it.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by CTAKIMOTO Falta de atención a los clientes
Muchas veces, los programas de fidelidad al cliente no pasan de rótulos sin contenidos. És de esta forma que me senti al hospedarme en este hotel. Tuve un imprevisto que necesitava de informaciones adicionales sobre mi reserva que ninguna persona del front desk podria me ayudar y solicitaram hablar con el gerente que estaria en Lunes a partir de las 7 am. Cuando llamé por Anabella que seria la persona con quien deberia hablar, no quizo me antender y encaminó su recado através de las personas del front desk. Creo que ser Gold Member y tener alguna fidelidad a esta cadena de hotel no importa. De ahora en diante no haré ninguna questión de hospedarme en la cadena de IHG.

Breakfast area in lobby is too small and at times crowded and very noisy. Had to sit outside due to lack of sufficient sitting space.

My sister left her charger behind, and for the first time in my experience, hers was found and turned in so my sister could recover it. Everything about the stay was delightful.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by D.Reed worst hoiday inn express Ive EVER stayed at!
We have stayed at many holiday inn expresses and we have consistently enjoyed our stayed each time. Our previous experiences was a big part of the reason we chose to stay at this particular Holiday express for our trip to southern california for our family renunion instead of staying at the Embassy Suites with the rest of our family. Unfortuntely, this trip was unlike any other we have had.
Upon getting to our room, (Thursday 7/3) we noticed immediately that there was significant water damage to the ceiling above our bed. It had been patched up, but very unprofessionally and the carpeting below the leak was cruntchy as if had not been cleaned properly.
The following morning (Friday, 7/4) at the complimentary breakfast, I had a situation I have NEVER experienced during a hotel stay. When I opened the carton of milk I got for my cereal, it was spoiled and had curdled. Milk, the consistancy of yogurt was on my raisin bran. As you could imagine I no longer found it a good idea to eat breakfast in the hotel while we stayed there.
After checking out ( Saturday 7/5), I realized I had left my silk blouse in the room. Luckily we were had checked out about 5 hours earlier and were only about 10 mins away witho ur family. When i called the front desk ( about 5:00pm) to asked if housekeeping had found my shirt, I was told that no one would be able to check the lost and found until the following day for my shirt. When I inquired why it would take so long to check for my shirt, I was told IF housekeeping had found it it would be locked in a room that no one but the manager had access to. I asked why the manager could not check, i was told she was not infor the day. I asked why housekeeping couldnt open this locked room ( since they had access to the room to put it in there), and was told that there was no longer any housekeeping on the premises. I asked if maintanence had a key to this room, ( maintainence has the key to EVERYTHING, right?, I was told there was no maintance on the premises.
After i told the frontdesk clerk that I found it highly unlikely not to mention unprofessional that there was no housekeeping, maintanence and/or management on the property, I was told the manager could be called and she could call and me and let me know when she might be able to arrange for someone to look for my shirt. I told the front desk clerk, this all made no sense to me and that I was not going home (400 miles away) without my shirt, because I was positive it was in the hotel. Highly frustrated and aggrivated I let her know I was on my way BACK to the hotel at the very moment.
I left my family reunion, got in my car and went back to the hotel. Within the 10 minutes it took me to get back to the hotel, low and behold the door that no one could access was opened and my shirt was found and waiting for me at the front desk.
I have NEVER had a situation when my intellence doubted like this. I truely believe someone found my shirt and was trying to make it as difficult as possible for me to get me shirt so that i would give up and they could keep my shirt. I have NEVER stayed in a hotel where I could not speak to a manager at any moment I asked to. I have never stayed at a hotel where housekeeping was not readily avaiable. I know for a fact there was maintanence on the premises because I passed him in the lobby not only when we were checking out ( fixing ceiling panels in the check in/out desk and dropping dust on passing customers) but also as I walking BACK in to the hotel to retrieve my shirt.
Overall, this was the worst hotel experience of my life.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Henry20854 Good location, Good parking space, Nice and Clean Room, and Great Breakfas
It's my first time to stay in this hotel, and I chose it based on its location (easy to access to major highways). But after 4 night stay, my wife and I really love this place.
To drive to Alhambra, Arcadia or Pasadena downtown, it's just 5 to 10 minutes. The hotel itself has equipped everything we need. The internet speed is fast with no interruption, and the computers (both Windows and Mac) in business center are easy to use with a local printer connected.
It has a nice pool and big fitness room, but we were too busy to visit friends and relatives and really regret not being able to use them.
The room is nice and clean. The water pressure and temperature of hot shower are always great and stable. We definitely will come back to this place next time.

I wish your hotels would allow the guest(s) to indicate that housekeeping should just make up the bed and not supply fresh linens every day. A plaque or card could be left on the bed to indicate this request. My stay included 4 nights and it would have been fine to use the same sheets and pillowcases for all 4 days. I left a note, but don't think my request was followed. Also, some towels can be reused by hanging them up; if the guest wanted them to be replaced, they could be asked to put them in the bathtub or on the floor. I have stayed in other large hotel chains where these environmentally friendly measures were options for guests so that water, detergent and energy were saved.
Also, some common areas for recycling newspapers, rinsed beverage cans and plastic bottles would be nice. Thank you for a great experience.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Blazin_Bill Good Place To Stay
I stay at the Holiday Inn Express due to their world wide locations and points for free/discount stays. They always seem to be clean and comfortable with a good breakfast. The pools are long enough to swim in if you bring a swim belt. If you have activities to do in South Pasadena this location is not such a far drive. I will stay here again if up in the area.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by singletoncentral Enjoyable Stay
It was a great day away from the usual. The Hotel is not as pretty on the outside as it looks in the pictures, as it is in the same lot as a mini-mall. But inside, there is absolutely nothing to complain about. It is clean, the staff was efficient and courteous -- they even gave us a late check out on a Sunday for no additional cost. Our room was spacious, quiet, nicely decorated and provided for all our needs including microwave and refrigerator -- even a bar. The breakfast was really good and the swimming pool was clean.
It was exactly what we were looking for.

I stay at this hotel often and usually love it - the breakfast is always great. This time the front desk was terrible ( it was like I was bothering him) and my room AC was not working well - after 12 hours of travel not the way you want to unwind.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Business Travel8 Great Staff, Conveniently Located
Comfortable rooms, terrific staff. They are always very friendly and professional. I've stayed there for business three times now. It is very conveniently located near 210 freeway, with many restaurants nearby, a Sprouts grocery just down the street, etc. The Hot Breakfast is free and relatively good, though their scrambled eggs are revolting. The alternating mornings when they do the foldover omelet with a craft single is better, but still not great. Otherwise, good hotel.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by 57 Chevy Hotel does not offer 2 Double Beds per room
This hotel should not be charging a high rate per night when they only offer "Fold Out Beds" in one room and King in the other room.
Rooms require better sound proofing in the walls so you can not here the neighbors nextdoor.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Crockett05 Nice property - the bed was too firm
This property is one of the higher rated hotels in the Pasadena area, and the property overall, was very nice. I wasn't crazy about the location, however in the whole scheme of things, it turned out just fine. The staff was very nice, and I have no complaints with any of the service that we received during our stay. The room was large and well laid out, complete with a decent sized refrigerator. The hotel was priced right too. The Wi-Fi was pretty decent which I thought was a pleasant surprise.
The challenge really, was that the bed was really firm - too firm for my wife, and as a result of that the stay was less than stellar because she didn't get much sleep. She wound up trying to nap on the couch in the sitting room. For that reason, we probably won't be back. If you are OK with a very firm mattress, this hotel is a great choice.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by cactus sisters Wonderful location
We picked this property because our visit was to see L.A. Arboretum and Huntington Gardens; also the Calif Cactus Center. It was perfect. Staff was friendly and since the weather was extremely warm, the bottles of water were very welcome. They made sure we had correct directions and gave suggestions for eating in vicinity. Now as to the breakfast, first time I'd ever seen a pancake machine - loved it! Rolled out the perfect size and depth every time. What a treat. Just an all around great place to stay.
