We stayed in the Guest Suite. A few minutes from Hollywood. Great location, safe and roomy. We will definitely go back!

Stayed about five days in this place. Really couldn't asked for more. Great value for money!

Although there is not a huge amount within walking distance, I would suppose that anyone staying here would have a car. Excellent secure car parking.

Will be back!

We loved this place. It was true to the photos and at the intersection of Sunset & Santa Monica it was a great location.

Because of a fender bender we didn't arrive until 2am, but out hosts were still kind and courteous.

We left our room in a bit of a mess the first day as we were rushing to make it to a wedding and returned to find everything neat and the bed made up.

This is an old house. with a pretty garden, and secure parking behind an electronic gate. Its in a quiet neighborhood, within easy walking to Sunset which has lots of fun restaurants and cafes (check out Good with over 300 beers to sample). Our only negative of note is that the room lists a bit, so if you dropped a bottle it would roll right across the room.

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay, thought the price was more than reasonable and will definitely recommend it to our friends!

I had a nice stay in the Guest Room, which had a private room with a shower. We could also use the guest kitchen. Everything was clean. The host was very nice and totally flexible with check-in time.

There was a 15 minutes walk to arrive at the metro station but you could also use the bus to get there.

I recommend it.

My husband and I stayed here for 5 days and found this to be the perfect base for getting around L.A. We drove here and loved the fact that there was gated parking. The neighborhood was also very nice and quiet. We stayed in the guest room and found it to be perfect for our needs and everything was also well maintained and clean. We had use of a full sized kitchen as well which came in handy for keeping our eating out costs down. When coming back to L.A. we will most definitely be coming back to Sanborn House. Thank you for such an awesome pace to stay!

I stayed in the Suite at the Sanborn Guest House for three nights (Wednesday, Thursday, and Friday) in June '08 while I visited my daughter and son-in-law who live nearby. The on-site owners were very accommodating and welcoming. The suite was spacious & charming. It included a sitting room, bedroom, and private bathroom. It shared an equipped kitchen with the other guest room. The bed was very comfortable, the closet space was spacious with shelves & hangers, and the shower was good. Amenities included cable television, wireless internet, radio/tape player, in-room refrigerator, alarm clock, hair dryer, and secure off-street parking. During my stay, I heard almost no "house" noise from either the other guests or the owners. I heard some traffic noise, especially from diesel shuttle buses passing nearby (after all, it is in the city!). This House is within easy walking distance - 2 blocks - of a business district (Sunset Junction) with interesting shops and cafes. Overall, this facility is an excellent value in an eclectic neighborhood of Los Angeles.
