Detailed Reviews
TexasLover wrote a review Nov 2016

We stayed for five nights in the Motel 6 Arcadia over Breeders' Cup 2016 week. The motel is very close to the world-famous Santa Anita Race Park and, like all hotels in the area, drew quite a premium (over $100.00 per night) for the special event. I believe regular pricing is closer to $75.00 per night.

I wanted to comment on a recent review stating that the Santa Anita Race Track is just across the street from the hotel. Technically, this may be right. Just across Colorado Street, you will be in one of the very distant parking lots of Santa Anita, but it is well over 1/2 of a mile to the entrance gate. Also in the well meaning review, it was stated that the Westfield Mall is a two minute walk from the motel. That simply is not the case. You will need to drive all the way around the track to get to the upscale mall.....well over a mile away.

Still, the hotel is very convenient for plans at Santa Anita. The street side of the motel faces Santa Anita and the backside gives you a mountain view. If you have mobility issues, the motel is two stories with no elevator, you will need a first floor room. The staff was a plus, in my opinion. The front desk clerks were always friendly and helpful. We got a free early check-in and a late check-out. The staff graciously refrigerated my medication during the stay. There was fresh, hot coffee in the lobby each morning.

Housekeeping was a real highlight. Each day we would come back to a very clean room with beds made perfectly. The housekeepers take pride in their work and we appreciated their efforts. The grounds were kept up nice and the premises were clean. The beds were comfortable and there was a good selection of channels on the mounted flat screen TV.

The water pressure was a little low in the shower, but plenty of hot water. The water saver on the sink is just obnoxious. It takes you about 20 seconds to fill up an 8 ounce cup. Still, the room was clean and comfortable, which was our ultimate goal. The ice machine went out for two days of our stay and the front desk tried to import enough ice for the guests, which helped. It appears that the hotel guests and maybe a few trespassers continually loaded up ice chests for their day at the race track and overwhelmed the machine. It was fixed within 48 hours.

The motel has a really poor system of maintaining non-smoking rooms. We had a non-smoking room that had a moderate smell of smoke. We reported that to the front desk so that we would not be charged a cleaning fee for smoking in the room. We learned that there is no penalty for smokers smoking in a non-smoking room. Of course, this effectively makes every room a smoking room. The housekeeper tried to deodorize the room, but still it had a smoky smell. The staff offered another non-smoking room, which had the same problem. I wish Motel 6 would try to protect its non-smoking rooms better with a standard $250.00 cleaning fee if evidence of smoke is found in the room.

Also, the motel provides no shampoo, no conditioner, no hairdryer (although the front desk has loaners), no iron or ironing board, no refrigerator, no microwave, no clock and no coffee pot. The vending machines downstairs were old and did not accept our dollars. No convenience stores or grocery stores are within a couple of miles. Peppers Mexican Grill is about 300 yards down the road, but was pricey and not very good.

If you drive a couple of miles into the heart of town, you will find many good restaurants and a Ralph's grocery store. We could not get the $3.00 per day wi-fi to connect, so we just used our regular 4G Internet service on our cell phones.. We typically prefer hotels over motels and may only stay at a Motel 6 in the future if the location really matters. If the Breeders' Cup returns to Santa Anita, this motel will likely be where we stay.

We were a bit stranded due to mechanical problems - and during the time it took to (a) find a mechanic with a tow truck and (b) try and wait for his (very busy schedule.) This Motel 6 allowed us to keep the room beyond check out time in order that we would be comfortable as we waited. We asked the housekeeping staff if that would throw off their 'schedule' and each maid replied: "we will save you for last" -- they were so kind and so caring, and I cannot thank them enough.
BTW: Nice room at a great price, and they helped me through a difficult situation with compassion.

The Motel 6 Arcadia/Pasadena is located in a nice place, surrounded with trees. This makes it a quite unusual Motel 6.
Welcome at the front desk is very kind. Rooms have been recently refurbished. Mine was quiet and clean.
For 80 $, you sleep in good conditions.

Have regular stays here. The cleaning staff keeps the rooms fresh and clean. The front desk has excellent service. They go above and beyond to make guests feel important. Beautiful view of Santa Anita Race Track and a lovely pool. The manager has this motel running like a well oiled machine. Never had any issues.

This place was so gross, I refused to take a shower. There was mold in the bath and the back of the bathroom door looked chewed away, perhaps by a dog. The carpeting was filthy and the room had a horrible odor.

Not a lot good to say about this motel. Was expensive for what it is.
Was hit by the smell of cigarette smoke as soon as we walked in the door which made our clothes smell. Loads of noise from other guests. Not the cleanest of places. Staff were friendly but only spoke on check in and check out. I wouldn’t recommend staying here, beds were uncomfortable with a dip in one side. Didn’t feel very safe.
