Not too sure why there are such negative reviews about this hotel. For the price point and everything it comes with, this hotel is great. At the end of the day, what makes a hotel good isn't just about appearance, it's also about service, price, amenities, and locations. Santa Anita Inn is old, yes; it is a budget hotel, yes;...

Santa Anita Is A Budget Hotel/Motel, With Old And New Rooms; I suggest The New Section. Not A Good Place For Anyone That Has Security Concerns, Easy Street Access From The Back Side Of The Inn. Its Good For People In Transitioning from Homeless to Temporary Housing.

The Santa Anita Inn is very near the Westfield Shopping Mall, Santa Anita Race Track as well as other local shopping and restaurants. As in line with the other reviews on this property, it could stand a great deal of updating. During breakfast the staffer had to keep coming into the dining room to "hit" the coffee maker on each...

Hotel room was in need of TLC - especially the bathroom, peeling wall paper, water damaged door, caulking issues. Relatively quiet, even facing the main street - may have been because of few guests. Thermostat - old knob style - worked, but you could feel the humidity in the air. Refrigerator, coffee maker, hair dryer in room. Pool - looked...

Okay so it's not the most up-to date property I can not even argue that point. But the hotel is walking distance to the Santa Anita Race Track and the Westfield Mall. So convenient is an understatement. The hotel is clean and the staff are very friendly staff. The breakfast is not so good but you're close Le Roys Restaurant...

The Motel is very close to Hwy 210 easily found by taking the turn off for Santa Anita Race track, which is directly opposite. The motel is set in grounds with a swimming pool in the centre. The public areas are clean and pleasant, the room blocks not so nice. Our room was large, newly carpeted and had some refurbishment....

This one time elegant hotel is scheduled to be razed, a 4 star hotel will be built here. My room was clean and comfortable. Room prices are cheap for the area, so the value is very high. I hope that some of the landscaping will be retained. In the meantime, the hot tub and pool are not heated, the Wifi...

If the chance comes up again, I will probably stay here again. The staff, lobby, location and the grounds were lovely...the room, not so much. The room I stayed in just needs a complete overhaul, especially the bathroom. The bathroom is dated with water damage. Too bad, this place must have been nice 20 years ago. Please update!!! This place...

I didn't realize that this hotel was used by many Chinese tourists as a "maternity" hotel until I stayed there for a few days. In fact, I later learned about this from a news broadcast by a local TV station. The place felt like a Chinatown. Most guests were Chinese and were pregnant! The come here because there's a hospital...
