Yes, this really is small. And yes, it was a real jail with two of the jail doors remaining. But what a nice little retreat in a nice little town.

While visiting our daughter who lives in Pasadena, my wife and I stayed at the Jailhouse Inn for three nights. When we booked I was a bit reluctant because there were no TripAdvisor reviews of this B&B (I am a big TripAdvisor fan and also a contributor).
