The Howard Johnson Pasadena is a nice motel in a good area of Pasadena. It is not on the caliber of a La Quinta, Holiday Inn Express, or hotels of that level. The HJ rooms are exterior rooms and the doors face the enclosed parking lot. There was not any street noise in the rooms, but you could hear people...

It's pretty convinence to look for food. There are stores around the blocks. Rooms are quite big except the bathroom. It gave me a warm feeling of home. Pretty clean, quiet and bright. Breakfast is provided. Not really expensive to stay over, so I will recommend it.

Perfectly fine motel. Short on charm, but room is clean, with big tv, microwave, fridge and coffeemaker. Bed was soft but very comfortable. Breakfast underwhelming. Wifi was completely down when we arrived - we couldn't get a top floor room because the man at the desk said he had no idea what rooms were ready. Wifi spotty for the balance...

HJ has the entrance doors on the outside of the building with windows people walk by. Reasonable price. Rooms clean. Breakfast OK. Wifi OK but not great.

Perfect for fball wkend! The hotel is located on the side of the street which gives you easy access to the freeway for travel back and fourth to the stadium.

This was a nice solid d hotel - nothing fancy, but clean and well kept. Solid breakfast too, though the same every day. Waffles, oatmeal, yogurt, a couple cereals, fruit, juice, coffee (no decaf), hard boiled eggs. Some bread products like croissants and bagels. A tiny pool.
