Early October I stayed at Arroyo Vista Inn with two friends. When we went to check in, we were greeted by the very helpful and kind (not creepy or intrusive at all) owner, Pat. We walked in and had complimentary cheese and cookies and wine. There is also a mini fridge before you walk upstairs, it has soda, perrier, and... More

I stayed at the inn with a couple of friends last two weeks ago and had a nice stay. The inn was even more charming than I expected. It sits on the side of a hill above a busy street, but the noise is not noticeable, with the exception of a slight hum from the metrolink train. Our room had... More

We enjoyed a lovely stay at the Inn. We went for a "girls weekend" and booked two rooms. We arranged to drop off our luggage early in the day and found our keys waiting for us. We also were able to arrange for a slightly earlier breakfast time to accomodate our plans for the following day. The living room was... More

Clearly, according to the reviews received here, ours is not the majority... My husband and I live in Burbank, basically a 15-minute drive from the Inn. He booked a night to celebrate our wedding anniversary last Saturday night, in which we would go to nearby Bistro de la Mere for dinner and the Huntington Library yesterday (which we still did)....

Arroyo_Vista_Inn, Owner/manager at Arroyo Vista Inn, responded to this review

The Inn’s standard confirmation of each reservation explains the “self-check-in” process, where that occurs and what it consists of, so that each guest may go to his/her room unassisted and without delay. Had these guests read their confirmation, they would have understood the process. Despite the “self-check-in” policy, I or someone else is usually here to greet guests as they... More

My daughter staged her wedding at this location Aug. 31,2008. We stayed for 3 nights. What a wonderful location and experience. The location was quiet and extremely relaxing. Breakfast was superb and managment was excellent. Their attention to detail is not seen in many places. The wedding/reception went very well with dancing and fun under the stars. I can't wait...

I have hesitated to write a review of Arroyo Vista Inn because I do not know if I have the correct words to describe the magical place that it is.My husband and I celebrated our wedding anniversary at the Inn, although we live in Pasadena. From the moment we wound up the long drive under the canopy of oaks and... More

We adored AVI during our five night stay. The home is gracious and welcoming thanks to fresh baked cookies and relaxing happy hour with local wines and snacks each day. The Oak Terrace room was the ideal spot for 'home base' as we dropped our daughter off at Oxy and toured the area for a possible move to Pasadena. It... More

My wife & I recently spent 6 nights at this wonderful B&B. The location is the perfect jumping off point to explore all of the excellent examples of architecture in the Pasadena, Los Angeles and Hollywood area. If you love Arts & Crafts Architecture, have visited the Roycrofters in East Aurora, NY, the Grove Park Inn in Asheville, NC or... More

My wife and I have stayed at the Arroyo four times now in the past year and we love it. The inn has been beautifully restored and the innkeeper is a superb hostess who is very knowledgible about the Pasadena area. The breakfasts are very satisfying and the afternoon wine and cheese provide a relaxing end of the day. We... More

All this, plus a most hospitable friendly host, fabulous breakfasts and 5 o'clock snacks on the veranda! Other guests were all pleasant as we were all treated so well. Very easy to get to from LAX , also... More
