A beautiful place with a tremendous view, this is tucked into a lush hillside of S. Pasadena that feels delightfully secluded even while being so accessible to the shops and restaurants of the surrounding town. You can easily choose to stay in the inn for the entirety of your stay as its spacious living room, breakfast room, and beautiful porch... More

I normally stay at hotels but decided to give this B&B a try. My stay was absolutely lovely. The B&B is tastefully decorated with old antiques. The rooms are very comfortable, especially the beds. Pat (the owner) went out of her way to make sure our stay was perfect. Highly recommend!

This is a beautifully restored and very tastefully decorated (some B&B's have knick-knack overload) home in the hills of So Pasadena. Friendly, pleasant, accommodating staff. Lovely views from most of the rooms. Our room had a little balcony which was great for viewing the mountains, watching the sunset, and enjoying the stars. There are also wonderful outdoor patio areas. In... More

They choose who they would like to treat well. Poor customer service and limited care of how your stay is going, for $275 per night while renting 2 rooms. Oh and not to mention the dirty looks. I would not recommend this place unless you are a white republican who likes to sleep at 8 pm.

We found Arroyo Vista a perfect place for a romantic weekend get away- quiet and private. Our late-night check-in was a breeze and then we were welcomed with a view from our balcony of the mountains and city below that was quite pretty. The large jetted tub with the view of the green hillside was fantastic. We were pleased with... More

My parents recently came to visit me, and they stayed at the Arroyo Vista. They absolutely loved their stay, and I am firm believer in supporting small businesses that are doing it right (they are doing it even better than right at the AVI!), so for anyone out there considering where to stay in the South Pasadena/Pasadena area, this is...

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!
