One bad apple in a basket of great ones”
There were two kitchen ladies alternating each other every morning. One was very warm and was very pleasant and courteous. The other was absolutely rude and cold. So, our days were alternately good and bad. Cheers.
Glenn, I am so sorry for the experience that you had. That is not how my staff should treat any guests. I will look into this and make sure it does stop. Wishing you a nice trip to the states and a safe travel back home. God bless you and sorry again.
Breakfast was good but there was no parking for a lot of cars.
Harold, thank you for staying with us and we are so glad that you loved our little Hotel We apologize for the lack of parking but when we are very busy we cannot control how many people park their cars here. We allow for two in a room so sometimes guest will bring two cars for one room. Hoping that this will not deter you and we hope that you will come back to enjoy our fresh home-cooked breakfast that you loved. God bless you and have a great week Harold.
Cute little upscale motel”
Nice hotel and with a great staff. Rooms are pretty clean. The bathroom was a little outdated, but most importantly it was clean. The free breakfast was delicious and they make pancakes to order. The pool is really small. It is more for kids. There is plenty of parking for free.
Hi Aisha! Thank you for the great review. We are so happy that you could appreciate what we are doing here. We do get so many that love us and especially the fresh breakfast. We put a lot of love into our work. We will continue to improve and we hope to have you back again Aisha. Have a wonderful rest of your week and enjoy this beautiful weather! Take care.
Had a pleasant stay, just one complaint. I asked for a late check-out at 12pm, which was honored, however the front desk lady did not make a notation of it and the room service lady invaded my privacy by opening my door. Shortly after I received a call from the front desk reminding my that check-out was at 11am. I notified her I had requested a late check-out and it was honored, she then apologized and said there were no notes on it. They need to do a better job a communicating!
Hello Rosa, thank you for the great review and informing us of our shortcoming. We will work harder to improve the communication within our staff. We love to hear what we are doing wrong so we can change and excel in the future. We are glad that you loved everything else and we hope to have you back for another enjoyable stay. Have a great and wonderful day Rosa with this weather! See you soon we hope.
Great place except for 1 staff”
Great location. Very clean. Easy to talk to. Except for 1 staff. The cook/chef for breakfast last 06 April. A bit grouchy. The other cook/chef (the one during breakfast 07 April) was very very nice and always smiling. Overall, very good stay.
Thank you Glenn. We are so happy that you loved everything here except for the staff member. I will have a talk with her and discuss this with her. We appreciate you staying with us and especially coming from so far. Wishing you a great trip to the states and safe travels Glenn.
Didn't expect great buffet for the price!”
At 90 dollars, with four pax registered= 4 buffet breakfast, freshly made pancakes (better than Denny's pancakes) with Unli coffee, unli drinks, fruits. The dining area is quaint. What else, working warm jacuzzi! No carpets- awesome!!!! There are a few things that's not perfect but it's a great place to rest.
Thank you Edweiss, We are so happy that you loved our small hotel and that we exceeded your expectations with value, service and especially our breakfast! Our breakfast chefs put so much love into their cooking and it shows. We will continue to improve and work on our details to make this place improve. We will make your next trip here even better. Thank you for the 3 nights here and have a great weekend!
Great place, but grounds need to be cleaned up. ”
Room was very clean and bed was comfy. The staff was very friendly and helpful. The breakfast offered a great variety. The grounds need to be cleaned up though. The grounds not being cleaner separates for me what a three and four star hotel. They focus a lot on their filling and great breakfast and clean rooms. They need to focus o the grounds now. Throughout the properly there were patches of something blue: not sure if it was paint chips, plastic or what. Also, the grounds are covered in cigarette butts. I probably would not have noticed these things, except we had a dog that needed walking. Also, the walls are very thin between the rooms. If you are a light sleeper, bring earplugs.
Hello Sue, thank you for the nice review and good feedback. We are currently doing a “face-lift” on our standard rooms are yes we are having some slight messes outside. We will work more dilligently to clean up. Thank you for appreciating our rooms and the breakfast and we hope that you will come back again. Honestly, we love to get these thpes of reviews so we know how to improve. Have a great weekend!
Great value, nice rooms”
We were group of eight adults we had six rooms between us. Everyone seemed happy with their room, lots of pillows, but bed could’ve been a little softer but it was really nice. The “lounge” was really comfortable with plenty of seating and we brought our own drinks down before we went out for the evening and had a really lovely time altogether since we wouldn’t have been as comfortable in our rooms. Only problem with bringing the party down to the lounge, is that there was no public restroom so we had to continually go back up to our rooms. But we managed. ;) Overall very nice.
Thank you Roseann, we are so glad that you and your group loved our little hotel. Enjoying our lobby and utilizing it was out goal. We are sorry that there are no reatrooms in there. But if you guys come back in warmer weather, we do have a bathroom in the pool area and we also allow for our guests to bring their own drinks there as well. We hope you loved the fresh breakfast as well. Have. Agreat week and we hope to have you guys back soon!
Home Away from Home”
I come to the area for work and have booked my stay there a few times. The first time I stayed in a renovated room and the second a non-renovated room . I actually like the non-renovated room better. Its cozier. The renovated room could've used towel hooks. We had no where to hang our towels after showering. The only issue I have with the place is 1. no microwave in the room. I come for work therefore I bring some food with me. I dont eat out every meal and 2. The breakfast has to be eaten in the lobby. You are not able to bring it back to the room. I had to wake up my son for breakfast when I just wanted to let him sleep. It's an inconvenience to some. The woman at the desk in the morning was a bit rude about it when we were only uninformed about it on our first night. I've stayed other places during my trips for work and we feel most at home at the Le Reve. I only wish that they would provide microwaves and lower the price of the two floor suite. I would totally stay in there!
Hello Michelle, thank you for taking the time to write this. I agree with the hooks and have just ordered them so we can install them next week in all of the premium rooms. Great comment. We will also be adding more mirrors in those rooms as well. We are also renovating the standard rooms currently and please ask if they are available when you check in since we only have a handful of those "face-lifted" rooms done now. As for the breakfast I do understand your point of view. To be totally honest, our breakfast is more of a "luxury" and we spend a lot of money towards this as an added value. We always see wasted food in the rooms and thus to keep this type of breakfast, we have to control it in the dining area. I do hope you can understand this. As for a microwave Michelle, we have tried them before but since the building is old, our electric outlets do not handle the current and we had a lot of tripped breakers. Thank you for choosing us and we hope to see you back soon!
Very nice staff, attentive and helpful. Attractive, clean room providing a suit of amenities (refrigerator, coffee machine, hair drier, ironing board etc). Includes good home-made breakfast (could be more imaginative, if you are staying for more than a day). Industrial neighbourhood, but safe, groceries next door, shopping mall nearby (nice part of Pasadena just a block away).
Thank you Leo for your honest review. We are so glad that you really enjoyed your stay with us at our small hotel. We are also doing a "face-lift" on the standard room type that you stayed in so we hope for you to come back see. We will work on a changing menu soon. Thank you for the advise and that will be done soon. Have a great day Leo!
Best breakfast in town!”
Every member of the staff was wonderful to deal with and they served fresh breakfast every morning with pancakes to order. To top it off the rates are crazy cheap. I’ve never stayed in a better hotel, all these factors included.
Hello Chris, We are so elated to you loved our little hotel! We are not perfect but we try hard to make the best experience for the best value. We will be giving the standard rooms a "face-lift" slowly this year. We hope to have you back to enjoy them next time you are in Pasadena. Thank you for staying so many nights and have a beautiful day!
The staff at the front desk, especially Sergio, was very friendly and helpful. We had a problem with our tv and it was replaced with a new one. The kitchen staff is very accom- odating too and the breakfast was excellent!
Hello Carolyn, Thank you for staying with us for the new year! We are so glad that we could fix any issues we had and sorry for any inconveniences it may have caused. I will let Sergio know that he was a delight! We definitely get a lot of compliments on our fresh breakfast and so happy that our hard working chefs can keep on delivering the quality. We hope to have you back again if visiting Pasadena. Have a great year to come Carolyn!
What a nice place!”
Beds were big and clean and comfortable. Room was well laid out. Plenty of room to do in room computer work. Very friendly front desk staff. And the 'homemade' breakfast really was.You could see the food being prepared in the kitchen area. It was delicious and plentiful. Hotel Le Reve is on my staying here next time list. Easy access to freeway
Hi Roger! Thank you for the great review. We do try hard and we are a small hotel. Thank you for seeing us and appreciating what we provide for the value. Our breakfast does get a lot of great compliments and we are excited to have you back whenever you are in the Pasadena area. Have a happy holiday and happy new year Roger!
Nice big and clean rooms. Awesome breakfast! And very friendly staff. Location is good wenn traveling with car!
Hallo Steven! Vielen Dank für die tolle Bewertung. Wir versuchen, den besten Wert für die Erwartung zu bieten. Ja, wir haben viele Komplimente zu unserem frisch zubereiteten Frühstück. Wir entscheiden uns für einen anderen lokalen Tarif. Wir wünschen Ihnen eine gute Reise hierher und wieder nach Hause! Hello Steven! Thank you for the great review. We do try to provide the best value for the expectation. Yes, we have a lot of compliments on our fresh cooked breakfast. We choose to give a different local fare. Wishing you a safe travel here and back home!
The bed spread and sheets were not very clean (had stains and little hairs, etc). And the floors were also dirty (did not seemed to have been vacuumed and mopped) - I couldn't walk around barefoot and then with socks on, my socks became SO dirty and had random dirt and hair on them. The lack of cleanliness made it uncomfortable.
Great breakfast ...terrible beds”
Had to switch rooms because bed was so sunken in the and terrible. it felt like my but was on the floor. Rooms definitely need new beds.
Hello Chris, we are sorry you did not enjoy our pillowtop beds. I will go and lay on it myself after the next guest checks out to see if there are issues. Thank you for informing us. We are glad that you loved our fresh breakfast though. We will evaluate the bed and if it is too soft, we will replace it.
The staff is very polite and helpful. The breakfast is fresh made for you. Best you can get in this.”
The facilities are being updated and cared for. They have nice workout room hot tub and pool. Very relaxing place
Thank you Berne, we are so glad that you loved our small hotel. We do have a few nice amenities for being so small too. Our breakfast is made fresh daily and that was our point. Who wants to have powdered or frozen eggs anyways. We do try our best to provide the best experience for the value and we will continue to slowly improve. We hope to have you back soon. Have a wonderful day Berne!
I recommend it in all aspects. the staff is bilingual and breakfast always fresh, delicious and warm
Thank you Fernanado so much for your review. We try very hard to give our best for the value. Our breakfast chefs put so much love into their food and always making it fresh. We are so happy that you could enjoy it here at our small hotel. We would love to have you back anytime. We hope you were also able to use our indoor hottub and sauna, but if not, next time! Have a wonderful day Fernando! Muchas gracias Fernanado por tu comentario. Nos esforzamos mucho para dar lo mejor para el valor. Nuestros chefs de desayuno ponen mucho amor en su comida y siempre la hacen fresca. Estamos muy felices de que pueda disfrutarlo aquí en nuestro pequeño hotel. Nos encantaría tenerte de vuelta en cualquier momento. Esperamos que también hayas podido utilizar nuestro jacuzzi interior y la sauna, pero si no, ¡la próxima vez! ¡Que tengas un maravilloso día Fernando!
The location of the hotel was too close to the freeway. I found it hard to sleep due to the noise of the freeway and the busy street. The room smelled very strongly of bleach and there were brown stains on the bathroom door and the wall in the room. The TV did not work properly. It's a pet friendly hotel and unfortunately pet owners do not clean up after their dogs outside.
Neli, thank you for informing us. We are sorry for missing the stains/marks during our inspection. We will have a look and fix that paint issue immediately. As for the pets, yes, we agree that it would be nice for the owners to pick up after themselves but we also clean up once a day. The rooms are deep cleaned periodically and if the smell was bothering you we could have moved you to another room Neli. Sorry for not meeting your expectations. As a small hotel we are centrally located and easily accessible so being off the freeway and being in an urban setting, it is hard to completely drown out car noises. Again, we are sorry for missing the mark and we will address that right away. We hope that the comfortable bed, clean room and hot breakfast will bring you back to us again. Have a wonderful day!
Le Reve Pasadena can be much better”
I booked this hotel as it was about 20 mins drive from Universal Studios (my first visit to Universal Studios). 1. Hotel Rooms are ok, doesn't have Microwave or kitchenette in it. 2. Room comes with Coffee maker, however you need to ask for Coffee Creamer, Tea bags etc at the reception (they don't supply it with room service). 3. Toiletries are supplied once in 3 days (couldn't understand the logic). 4. Across the street there is Dr. 420 (Cannabis/Marijuana shop). Now this can create the real mess. One night I had severe headache as probably some of the guests were having pot (I am allergic even to cigarette smoke). 5. When I spoke to Hotel management about this, they asked me to call them anytime I get that smell and then they will deal with it. I had problem with the pot smell for one night only. 6. The best part of the stay was the breakfast. It is made hot and served by the lady. It is really something you shouldn't miss. 7. Aesthetics of the hotel can be bettered.
Hello Anupam, thank you for staying with us and actually enjoying your stay. It seems that you were comfortable inside the room but had a few issues with the aesthetics. I will comment on all of your points and surprised that we received such a low score. Thank you for enjoying and loving the fresh breakfast. We can not change the urban location and the fact that marijuana is legal in California. For guests that choose to smoke, we have a smoking area for whatever they do smoke. We also have signs throughout the hotel for non smoking in the hallways. We will look into the toiletries and also into tea bags for the rooms. Thank you again Anupam for staying with us and we will continue to improve our small and quaint hotel for your future return. Happy New Year!
