Upon arrival my girlfriends and I were pretty impressed with the place. The place was really cute and the view in the morning when you wake up is spectacular. Right away we discussed coming back and using this place as our little getaway from the outside world. It's too bad that we didn't leave this B&B feeling the same way....... More

First, the person who wrote this review was never a registered guest at Arroyo Vista Inn. I had no knowledge that she was even coming to the Inn. Second, the person who did register for the room told me very specifically the night before that she could not stay overnight because she could not find a babysitter for her child.... More

I have been staying at the Arroyo Vista frequently for several years when I was on business in the LA area. It is a lovely place. After a long day of travel and business it is soothing to arrive at the Arroyo Vista. In addition, I recently brought a group of colleagues to the Arroyo Vista when we had meetings... More

Enjoyable B&B with first rate accommodations and great breakfast. Large rooms with great views; large bathroom; good towels and bedding. Easy access to S. Pasadena and Pasadena. Walkable neighborhoods. Nice indoor and outdoor sitting areas. Breakfast, afternoon wine & cheese, newspapers and comfy chairs make being there a treat. Would easily recommend to friends and family.

What a surprise to get off the highway and find the inn so close yet so secluded from the roadways. A winding drive from street level leads a very atractive compound tucked into the side of the hillside. The broad porch with comfortable seating, with the sound of water from the fountain and vista through the trees out to the... More

I have reviewed many hotels. I booked it early. It looked amazing. I knew I was choosing the least expensive room, but was so disappointed when I heard that a huge discount was given to my fellow travelers. I inquired about an upgrade, but the owner was very distracted and rude. Beware: the rooms on the third floor do NOT... More

This guest indeed chose and booked one of the least expensive rooms which have fewer amenities. When she saw the more expensive rooms that her companions had booked, she said in front of them and me, ”Why couldn’t I get a room like that?” I told her she could have any room available and receive the same discount that her...

This bed and breakfast is so well designed and accomadating it is like being at your own home... only the best part is you do not have to do the cooking or cleaning. I always enjoy my stays at Arroyo Vista Inn because all the rooms have a unique feel to them and the view is absolutely gorgeous. I love... More

We had been doing another South Pasadena B&B for years for our spring getaway. But it had gotten a bit grey around the edges, so we tried the pricier Arroyo Vista. Beautiful craftsman home, breath-taking view. Comfy and roomy room with awesome candy by the bed. Walkable to South Pas and just far enough to walk off one of the... More

We stayed for two nights on a mini-vacation to the area. The room was beautiful, very peaceful feeling, and very quiet. You feel far away from the hubbub but you can get everywhere in the area very easily and quickly. Breakfasts were delicious. Sodas, bottled water, and cookies were available all day and the afternoon wine and cheese was a... More

This beautiful old home built in the early 1900's was truly home away from home. The beautiful comon rooms, the wide front porch for early morning reading or sipping wine in the afternoon and of course the wonderful breakfast! Pat and her staff truly made us feel welcome! We will be back soon!

Arroyo Vista Inn consistently receives excellent reviews and this will be no exception! I stayed for 3 nights and every second was perfect. My intent was to relax and rejuvenate in a beautiful setting and the inn is simply magical in melting away all my stress. What makes the inn extra special, though, is not just its vibe of tranquility... More
