The SAGA Motor Hotel in Pasadena

A vintage motel

Old-school budget spot with an outdoor pool & free continental breakfast & WiFi.” Built in 1957, the Saga Motor Hotel is located on E. Colorado Blvd. (aka Route 66).  The Saga is a boutique hotel with 70 guest rooms built around a large, heated pool and sun deck area in a garden setting surrounded by Palm Trees. The Saga is  located on the Tournament of Roses Parade route.

While the Saga lets you step back in time to a day when actual keys were used to open hotel room doors and personalized service was common, it has all the “today” amenities you’d expect, including free, high-speed wireless service and cable television.  It also has a business center, free computer services and a small meeting room (in an informal and comfortable library setting) for groups of up to 20.

Prices vary based on the location of the room: upstairs or downstairs by the pool.
