We stayed a week at the Arroyo Vista Inn. This is a beautiful house, but unfortunately at our visit it was under transition to new ownership. Staying in B&Bs has become our preference for our vacations for the last several years. The hot breakfast part of this has been one of the niceties we looked for in B&Bs and this...

The location was up high on a hill which made it really nice and above the fray. Tree filled grace and serenity. All the hallmarks of a classic hospitable Inn, with a helpful staff and an excellent breakfast. My husband and I stayed there for craftsman tour. My husband and I were immersing ourselves in the Craftsman vernacular of Old...

The home was beautiful. Our room (#2) was lovely with a nice balcony and clean. Not that the balcony is shared so you need to close the curtains when dressing. Breakfast on Saturday and Sunday was good -- fruit and choice of egg, waffle plus lovely whole grain bread. Monday had a continental breakfast buffet. Each evening there was a...

This is the best B&B in the area. The rooms are elegantly appointed, quiet, clean and the entire place is restful and homey. I've recommended this place many times and I've stayed here myself at least a half a dozen times. I don't know what the new ownership will be like. I'm hoping that they maintain and/or improve the evening...

My husband and I just returned from a three-night stay at Arroyo Vista Inn. We were down in the area for our daughter's college graduation, which was at Staples Center in downtown L.A. Downtown hotel prices for the busy June travel season were off the charts, even for less-than-5-star hotels, PLUS after you adding hotel tax and paying for parking...

Like others, we found that not being greeted on arrival and never meeting the owner made it a most un b&b like experience. It's a lovely old house with character and the public rooms are stylish, but our bedroom (Tree House) was lacking in many basics. Unreliable water in the bathroom, a tiny wardrobe with 3 old hangers in it,...

My sister and I recently spent a night here after attending a book signing at Vroman's. Online reviews were so good that I could not wait to surprise my sister with our stay at a great BnB. The historic home is attractive and well-situated, and the public rooms are spacious and attractively furnished. But then we climbed to the second...

We have stayed here in the past and loved this B&B. Still a beautiful renovated older classic home....and still in a interesting area that is close to interesting spots to visit (Gamble House, Old Pasadena, Norton Simon Museum, Wrigley House, Pasadena Museum of History). We stayed for three nights and found some niggling issues that kept this review from five...

This a lovely older home, generally very well kept but the carpets are in desperate need of cleaning or replacement. . The location was convenient to restaurants and shops in S Pasadena. I spent 5 nights at this Inn in June 2016. The ownership changed during the week I was there so that may account for some of the shortfall...
