We just got back from an overnight stay at the charming Arroyo Vista Inn. We stayed in the Oak Terrace Room (#1) and were quite comfortable. It was clean and spacious with a queen sized bed, a sofa sleeper, and lots of natural light. There's a large terrace off this room that is shared with the neighboring room, but we... More

Very disappointed with this place. The owner is nowhere to be found when you have a question or concern. She is not available in the morning, afternoon or evening. The breakfast was clearly a leftover from the previous day/s, it was some sort of Quiche hot in the outside extremely cold in the inside with a cold piece of toast... More

This review is surprising and disappointing on so many levels. First, I apologize that any guest would be served a partially cold breakfast. That is not what we strive for, nor is it the usual experience here. Secondly, the reviewer says I was nowhere to be found. I am here most of the time and December is one of our... More

Even seeing all the high online ratings before our trip, Arroyo Vista Inn exceeded our expectations. Very pleasant staff and owner, excellent breakfasts, clean and comfortable. We definitely are planning to stay here again on our next visit to LA!

Tucked into a hillside in Pasadena, you will find historic home, run by very welcoming and very helpful people. We walked to dinner, through a small residential neighborhood, less than a mile from the Inn, and also walked less than a mile to the South Pasadena Metro Rail stop in the same nice neighborhood. It seemed to take just minutes... More

I am not one to write these reviews, but I recently stayed again at the Arroyo Vista Inn and thought it deserved to be recognized as one of the hidden treasures of South Pasadena. I have stayed here for both business and pleasure. With every visit, I marvel at the tranquil surroundings, beautiful appointments, and consistently excellent service. I love... More

There are several pluses: (1) an isolated location up the hill: (2) a well prepared breakfast and (3) good management, but the rooms and overall interior while decent simply do not come up to the standard of top class b and bs we have stayed in elsewhere. The neighborhood can best be described an mediocre.

This is a stately refurbished victorian style home, happily, retrofitted to be "Green". The rooms are spacious and graciously furnished with period pieces. The owner, Pat, along with her week-end chef assistant serve beautiful, healthful, and delicious breakfasts. The living room always has home baked chocolate chip cookies under a glass cover, and wine and cheese are offered at the... More

We have stayed twice at the Arroyo Vista Inn and highly recommend it. We love Room #2 which overlooks the San Gabriel Mountains and has a porch and full glass windows. The rooms have armoires instead of closets, traditional wooden furniture, decent bathrooms, bathrobes, and comfortable beds. The Inn is up a long narrow driveway. It has a lovely downstairs... More

Went to the Arroyo Vista Inn for a romantic weekend and it was perfect. The room was wonderful. We enjoyed sitting on the porch with a great view of the valley below and sipped wine. Breakfast was very special. Thank you Pat.

We enjoyed many things about Arroyo Vista Inn but will highlight a few that were especially impressive to us. The location is beautiful!! We really appreciated their commitment to local and organic products. Also, the food was excellent - it was very delicious and healthy! It was also good that the menu for the 2 mornings was different. There was... More
