A Diamond in the Rough – The old Aztec Hotel on foothill blvd, ( route 66) was a gem, back in its day. Unfortunately for the past ten years while the hotel was under poor management it was never maintained.
The entire establishment is dirty and run down. The rooms are very small, which was typical for hotels during that era. Some staff are friendly, others were not willing to help when needed. Bar is a local hangout with a pretty good Band. The property needs a complete overhaul.
Aztec Hotel is a charming piece of History on Route 66 – I must say our stay at the Aztec was enjoyable & I found this hotel which is listed on the National Historic Registry to be quite charming.
I had seen Aztec Hotel featured in the tv show, Route 66...... as well as various documentaries regarding the Aztec Hotel's year-round "infamous invisible guest"..... & yes, by that I mean "ghost"..... as the Aztec is haunted.... friendly ghost though!
Located in the San Gabriel Valley, California, the Hotel is Mayan Revival architecture designed by architect Robert Stacy-Judd, and built on the legendary original U.S. Route 66 in 1924.
The Aztec's Mayan Bar and Grill (Brass Elephant) is a fun place where locals as well as tourists go @ the end of the day to relax & unwind.
The new management staff was extremely courteous. And to the manager, Chris, who was helpful in planning our sightseeing.... thank you for an enjoyable piece of nostalgia!
Horrible Experience – $92.50 for the smallest, dirtiest, hideous,smoke smelling room I've ever stayed in. Management is white trash and extremely rude to customers. There is no reason to ever stay in this hotel, it's garbage and should not be open to the public.
Landmark – This is a 20's era hotel. Great restored murals, The rooms are small, no A/C.
The Elephant bar onsite is a great local spot for live music and eclectic clientel
