The summer enrichment program is particularly worthwhile, [...]

Best Western Eagle Rock Inn

Best Western Eagle Rock Inn

It’s a pretty standard two-story motel, a little closer to the 134/2 freeway interchange than we’d like, but the Eagle Rock Inn is clean and carefully maintained, and many rooms are under $120 if you book online.  Internet and a continental breakfast are free, the pool is decent, and there’s a hot tub. A mile [...]

Quality Inn Pasadena

Quality Inn Pasadena

The best choice along East Pasadena’s motel row, this well-maintained three-story chain is a good value. The furnishings are newer and comfortable, and the continental breakfast (served in a nice kitchen) is more substantial than most, offering things like oatmeal, toaster waffles and fresh fruit. You can hear the nearby 210 freeway from the rooms, [...]
