4 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW via mobile

This was a nice surprise nestled on a hill. The proprietor was nice and the breakfast was practically made to order. Only complaint was the satellite connection was not working, so no TV, and the TV was not a flat screen as advertised. I would stay there again.

We booked a 3 night stay. We thought we booked a premium room at $235 /nt. We were assigned a third floor room, no elevator. The room was smaller than shown in photos. The windows would not open. There were no windows or shower curtain in the bath. Also, there was very little counter space in the room. There was... More

Over the years of operating the B&B, I have learned that different people like different things. For this reason, all our rooms are a bit different, but similar in style. I am happy that this guest liked his second choice room and that we were able to accommodate the room change. We are not always able to do that. Secondly,... More

This delightful home has been carefully restored to its early 20th century beauty and turned into a stunning B&B. Located in South Pasadena, the Inn is a straightforward journey from LAX and provides ample parking. The driveway is long and uphill and easy to miss from the main road (we passed it twice -- I blame the jet lag). The... More

This B&B offers a beautiful and comfortable place to stay in South Pasadena. The building and grounds are very well maintained and the staff is very accomodating and pleasant. Check in was easy and building is very secure. The main building is beautifully furnished in the entry area as well as several terraces and patios to quietly relax. Our room... More

Lovely inn close to Pasadena in the Mission District of South Pasadena. Several different rooms available with their own personalities, great views, and amenities. Close to Huntington Library/Gardens/Art Museum.

Lovely inn with an excellent breakfast and wonderful location. The wine and cheese in the evening was a nice treat, not to mention the cookies! Rooms were clean and beds were comfortable and very friendly staff.

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.
