We stayed two nights at the Arroyo Vista bed and breakfast in South Pasadena and were pleased with the comfortable bed, decent bathroom (with a European type handheld shower) and a very convenient location making getting to and from the LA freeways easy. Our only issue is the same one others have mentioned - the manager isn't on-site, so issues...

I am happy the reviewing guest found the Arroyo Vista Inn comfortable and convenient. I am sorry s/he appears disappointed that I did not personally meet the guest. Talking with guests is the greatest joy of running a bed and breakfast. Yet, it is impossible to meet every single guest. Even though I live on-site, the guests schedules and mine...

That's the thought I had when I drove up and that was my departing thought as well. Our overnight stay was more than the sum of its parts. Warm and welcoming owners, beautiful architecture, elegant furnishings, a sense of history, delicious food, comfortable beds...all contributed to the "ahh..." feeling of coming home to a spot you've never been in before,...

My daughter and I stayed there on a recent quick visit to So Cal. It's a gorgeous old house, beautifully maintained and decorated. Very comfortable, with perhaps the best breakfast I've had in years! Even had wine and cheese and crackers out for us when we arrived at midnight! Highly recommend.

We arrived to no welcome, we had been warned that it was self check in and so carried on. We could see that the room we had booked already had someone in and we had been given another room. We had chosen a specific room, this had been confimed on first booking and final confirmation. We managed to raise a...

As the owner and manager of Arroyo Vista Inn, I am very sorry to hear this guest had a less than satisfactory stay. We strive to please all of our guests as much as possible. SInce I was not there and did not greet the guests myself, I am a bit unsure of the details of how the guests were...

We were here only for one night but I wish we could have stayed longer because this beautiful B&B keeps getting better and better; you are always welcome with their delicious cookies and fruit (tangerines from their own trees) and at around 5:00p.m. there is fine wine, cheeses and nuts) they also keep a refrigerator well stocked with all kinds...

I had a wonderful stay at the Inn, the room was quiet and comfortable with a large bathroom full of amenities. I especially enjoyed the healthy and delicious breakfasts served in a window lined room overlooking the hillside landscape. Hidden away above the road in a grove of trees, the restored house and surroundings welcome you to experience a bygone...

The Arroyo Vista Inn is a beautiful spot in the LA area. Away from the hustle and bustle of the city, you feel secluded and spoiled at the Inn, enjoying a home-like atmosphere amidst quiet surroundings. The establishment is an older, renovated home, and very quiet--you'd never really know there were other guests, except at the wonderful breakfasts. These are...

My husband and I booked this hotel for our wedding night because it was fairly close the Pasadena venue where we had the ceremony. Let's break this down: The good stuff: Lovely place and lovely grounds, it's a bit tricky to find, being tucked on a hillside off of the road. But the building itself is fantastic!!! The decor was...

My husband and I spent a week here. The steep, driveway approach announces you are somewhere secret, special. We loved being removed from the bustle of the world below. And once you open that big old front door and enter the house, you feel like you have somehow acquired your own magnificent, historic Pasadena home. Guests have free reign to...
