What a wonderful place! Gary is the consummate host, attentive and welcoming. The house is well situated in a very hip part of town with an abundance of shops and eateries within a very short walk. The suite itself was clean comfortable and nicely priced. Gated off street parking is a big plus. Would recommend this in a heart beat.

Just loved this place for our visit to the Hollywood area. It was clean, had gated off street parking, large bedroom and living room and it felt like staying at a friends home. Cafes, coffee houses and great restaurants just one block away. Easy access to lots of places of interest. And it was so quiet which we did not... More

We live in Los Feliz, a stone's throw from the Sanborn Guest House. Our house was being tented for termites and we wanted to stay close to home. Gary was a very accommodating host, and our room was just what we needed for two nights. We stayed in the Sanborn Guest Room. If you want a little more space, choose... More

Third, or fourth, stay at this lovely little guest house in Silver Lake. I am almost reticent to leave a glowing review as I want the room to be available when I return to East Los Angeles. I love the Silver Lake/Echo Park area.....so many cool restaurants and good coffee shops. Good take-out. Laid-back vibe....nice people. For me, the room... More

We liked the Sanborn Guest House a lot. Gary was very friendly and the room was spacious and nicely decorated. The shower & bathroom was clean and towels were provided and we had access to a shared kitchen where there’s filter coffee, a big fridge and a proper cooker. It’s like staying in a holiday chalet rather than a B&B... More

We had no idea what to expect never having stayed in LA, were we in the right area, would we be safe? We didn't want to be in a hotel and wanted to be a part of a community where their were interesting shops and restaurants within walking distance. SANBORN HOUSE was the perfect choice! Being built in 1921 the... More

I stayed at Tyler's Place accomodation for four nights in July 2012 and I absolutely could not fault it. As a solo female traveller being in the States for the first time, I was apprehensive about staying in such a big city all on my own, but I have to say, everything about this accommodation put my mind at ease....

I stayed at Tyler's Place at Sanborn Guest House for 2 nights in May. Douglas (the proprietor/manager) was super helpful and friendly, especially as I had slightly messed up my dates and times. It was a very convenient location, LA is hard without a car but there were a ton of great places to eat, have coffee, catch up with... More

We stayed in the guest suite for 3 nights in April 2012. During our stay we relied entirely on public transport. I can't fault anything about the accommodation. The location was excellent with buses and light rail providing easy access to down town, Hollywood and even Santa Monica. There were some wonderful eateries in the vicinity and the local area...

I stayed 4 nights and highly recommend this guesthouse in Silver Lake. Spacious and comfortable room, quiet, safe (single female), own entrance, well equipped kitchen shared with other suite, secure off-street parking. Hosts very helpful on arrival, though did not see them again during my stay. Woould definitely return!
