My room smelled. The property was too far from the convention center.

The hotel front desk worker was super friendly, helpful, competent and respectful. The pictures displayed on website are outdated. Exterior of building, lobby, breakfast area& parking lot were very clean, welcoming, well lit and clearly marked. Our room was not what we asked for, we requested online a king bed, we got two (2) queen beds. The bathrooms had been renovated but done very poorly meaning very sloppy where you could see previous fixtures as well as wall tiles coming off or not properly placed. It looked run down. The toilette paper holders were breaking off. The toilet had dirty scuff marks, the walls next to the toilet had stains & buggers on them. The tile floor in the shower was VERY slippery. The bathroom door & room door (inside) was old, bad paint job and parts of door were cracked/chipped. The views from our room was good...faced Colorado Blvd at the Pasadena City College beautifully Library! It’s along the parade route to Rose Parade but sad that Wyndham is associated with this place because it does not do seem to stand for the Wyndham or maybe the Wyndham name has gone down.

Competitive Pricing

The HoJo rates were very favorable for Pasadena. The room was so-so; the hairdryer did not work; the bathtub liner was peeling. The hotel is located across from the Pasadena City College - lovely campus; several eateries nearby.

Thank You for taking the time to review our hotel. We're so sorry to hear that you weren't able to set the shower to cold - we understand how frustrating that could be. We have since installed directions in the showers so that every guest can find the right shower temperature. We hope you enjoyed our large breakfast selections of croissants, danishes, yogurt, hot waffles, juices, and fruit in addition to the items you mentioned. Hopefully you were able to take advantage of the complimentary WiFi, parking and swimming/spa area as well. Please visit with us again soon!

Expected better...

Pros: I don't really know if I have anything that I liked about this hotel other than it was a bed to sleep on.
Cons: Too many things....
This hotel was not what I expected based on the photos and previous reviews. Very tiny parking lot. We were given a room directly in front of the elevator. Rooms were a little run down; carpets and couch were stained. Pillows on the bed may as well have been bricks they were that hard; again very uncomfortable....There are many other hotels in this area. I would recommend staying at one of them instead.

Thank You for spending some time to write a review about our hotel. We are so disappointed to find out that the guest room did not meet your expectations. Our parking lot is always able to accommodate all cars required, we work very hard to keep our carpets and furniture clean as cleanliness is a top priority. We wish we had known that you didn't care for the pillows as we could have provided you with softer ones. Hopefully you will decide to stay with us again so that we might change your opinion.

Not quiet as you think

Pros: Close restaurants, Free Internet
Cons: Noisy, Poor breakfast
Overall, the hotel was clean and tidy. The location was great as it was on nearby shops and restaurants; however, the overall place is not as quiet as you may think. Although on the main strip, you'd think the windows would be more sound proof, but we heard everything. In addition, I would recommend not getting anything less than the top floor. We requested top floor as I was preparing for a race that weekend and needed proper sleep. Unfortunately they didn’t have any and we had to settle for the 3rd floor. The front desk clerk assured us that the person above us worked night so we should not worry about noise. That was not the case. We kept being woken up with people stomping or dropping items at odd hours of the morning. Sad to say but we won’t be going there again. I understand that mid-level hotels are not all sound proof, but I would have expected some quietness based on the assurance from the front desk receptionist. BTW, if you're looking for a hot full breakfast there, you won’t find any. It’s just continental. I highly suggest taking a stroll to the nearby cafe for a hot breakfast. There are plenty to choose from.
