I stayed at Tyler's Place with a friend for two nights in October. Tyler's Place is a couple blocks from Sanborn Guest House proper but is part of it. Staying here is like staying at your really clean friend's one-bedroom apartment while she/he is away. The furnishings are lovely and tidy, not sterile or over fussy. We didn't have any sort of housekeeping, but we didn't need it and it actually made the stay better. That way, we felt comfortable coming and going when we pleased. The place had everything we needed. You might consider bringing your own shampoo but everything else was provided for like towels, bedding, iron/ironing board, etc. The Wi-Fi was also excellent.
Donald, the host, was very hospitable, and was there to greet us and say goodbye. Since this place is part of a multi-unit building with permanent tenants, you almost felt like a local amongst neighbors who definitely seemed to care very much about their home. The place is exactly as pictured on their website.
The place is close to some very nice restaurants (many vegan) and stores (many selling vintage) and it is only a short walk to a grocery store if you really need it. We particularly enjoyed the nearby Intelligentsia for coffee. This area maybe not pleasant for some people who detest hipsters, but this part of LA is what it is. It's a great chance to be amongst locals and not be in such a touristy location.
