I had no idea I had booked myself in such a charming place when I got this booking through expedia. The building and setting are lovely, with wonderful verandas and patios that I used frequently. The breakfast is very good. Best of all, the other guests were all a delight to meet and talk to at breakfast. Most of the...

This is a charming B&B literally nestled into the Arroyo hillside of one of LA's most charming suburban neighborhoods. The Craftsman-style home is beautifully appointed and very comfortable; staff very pleasant and lots of beautiful, sweeping vistas from the guest rooms. It's off of a relatively busy local street, but - one narrow, winding and rather steep driveway later -...

Our family stayed here in September and had a very peaceful and wonderful stay. Both rooms we had were all very well-kept and climate-controlled which was terrific during a heat wave in the Los Angeles area. We slept very comfortably and soundly. The Inn is set up on a hill on a nice patch of land away from the street...

The great: The Arroyo Vista is a lovely place. We found it to be clean, the room (the Oak Terrace), is spacious, has a nice big tub, and has great views and 2 balconies you can use/share. The front porch seating area is lovely too. The location makes it a good place to stay if you are going to be...

Knansea, Thank you for staying with us and your kind review. We fully appreciate it. The Oak Terrace is one of our favorite rooms and has a great balcony. But you are right that it might have some noise from the train and the road. We have some rooms on the other side the house that are as exposed to...

This charming B&B is a pleasant alternative to a big hotel in crowded LA. Housed in a historic Craftsman home with a lovely veranda that extends an immediate welcome, it’s perched high above the street, so traffic noise is minimal, and it’s close enough to the city to be convenient to downtown (it took us only about 30 minutes to...

We spent two enjoyable nights at the Arroyo Vista Inn. We stayed in Room #1, but had a peek at a few other rooms, and they were all very nice. (10 rooms total) The chifferobe in our room should be anchored to the wall (this is in earthquake country, after all), but everything else was in good order. Furnishings are...

Pros: Lovely sunset view through the trees in the evening. Great outdoor furniture to enjoy the sunset. Wine and cheese is put out and you are left to yourself, which to me is a huge plus. Guest would often congregate and get to know each other, but guests are left to themselves, which I like. Rooms are very nicely and...

Loved the rooms, sitting area, outside patio for reading and sitting, and the breakfast was wonderful! Came for a girls weekend and really enjoyed going to old time Pasadena, going to the spa, shopping etc. This turn of the century craftsman is a fantastic place close by with great property, enough parking, but yet secluded enough for you to feel...

We had a very enjoyable experience at this charming and remote B&B. Janice and her family are just lovely, both warm and welcoming. Room we stayed in was bright and airy, with lots of natural sunlight, and the best part of all is that this property is just minutes from Old Town Pasadena as well as the Rosebowl! Highly recommend.
