The Inn is a lovely, historic house perched on a hillside in S. Pasadena with great views and a peaceful setting. The rooms are comfortable and Claire prepared very tasty breakfasts. The location is great. It's just 4.5 miles to Caltech. Additionally, Pat gives a Caltech discount which puts the smaller room rates barely above GSA for folks on business... More

We were very lucky to find this gem. This B&B is 5 minutes from downtown Pasadena in one direction and Eagle Rock (location of Occidental College campus) in the other direction. This B&B is a very large home on a hill overlooking Monterey Road. Beware of the windy driveway up the hill. The inn is just moments from the 110... More

We were in Pasadena for the Rose Bowl and wanted to stay away from the crowds. This B and B did not disappoint - was inviting, unpretentious, comfortable, and with great views of the Valley. We walked 5-10 min to the train station to go to the parade. Pat was savvy about the timing needed to arrive to the Rose... More

Owner Pat Wright has the perfect oasis in Los Angeles: quiet and comfortable rooms; excellent breakfast; beautiful vistas; and, friendly, helpful hosts. We highly recommend this perfect B&B to anyone visiting Los Angeles. Outstanding!

I stayed there for two nights and wish that my plans allowed me to stay for more time. The owner and staff were very accommodating, the food was great and they made allowances for my vegetarian lifestyle. The owner, Pat carried on very interesting conversations and we discussed world events. I will plan a trip back to Pasadena just to... More

The Arroyo Vista is a great place to stay in the heart of South Pas. Pat is a wonderful inn keeper. Breakfast was much more than I expected. Be careful, the cookies available in the den are addicting!

We stayed at the beautiful Arroyo Vista Inn before in July 2014, and experienced an awesome stay. We again returned for a stay, September 2014 and love this property! The property is perched on the side of a hill, with trees nestled all around the Bed and Breakfast and property. The view from the property is beautiful! As before, we... More

We stayed four nights, and this was a great "home base" to come back to each day. We had one of the smaller, less expensive rooms, but it was still very nice and well furnished with antiques and a very comfortable bed. The breakfasts were outstanding and served in a lovely setting. The owner, Pat, was very helpful and all... More

My sister-in-law lives in the area and for years I have been searching for an inn like the Arroyo Vista Inn. The property is absolutely lovely, Pat is accessible, friendly but not overbearing. The breakfasts are delicious and the chef is very accommodating to dietary needs. And the guests were friendly and most interesting. I was on my own but... More

Wow. Had an amazing weekend here recently! It's a beautiful historic home with plenty of places to relax, read, meditate, snack, play board games, etc. They made my partner and me feel right at home. We walked in and were welcomed with complimentary wine, pistachios, chocolate chip oatmeal cookies, and a mini-fridge full of water and soft drinks. We brought... More
