We love the Arroyo Vista Inn. From the wine and cheese reception to the fabulous gourmet breakfast, it cannot be topped. We live very close but we feel like we are miles and miles away. The room was so comfortable. We felt welcomed from the minute we stepped on the gorgeous property. We are making this an annual tradition.

Beautiful, clean, comfortable, quiet and charmin...is there anything else you wish in a bed and breakfast? Other guests were polity and pleasant people. The owner is a friendly lady who is usually around in case you need anything. Had a three day lovely stay.

We loved our quiet, cozy 3rd floor room after a busy day visiting Los Angeles area colleges. Following a delicious breakfast of Mediterranean quiche, toasted artisan bread, wonderful coffee, and fresh squeezed OJ, we were off to Occidental College -- less than 10 minutes away. This is a beautiful, gracious historic property lovingly maintained, up a long curved driveway, nestled...

I stayed at Arroyo Vista Inn for six nights in July 2013. It is perched on a hillside, in the trees. It has spacious comfortable indoor rooms and even better porch furniture, where you can be in shade or sun, and view mountains and more trees. There are guidebooks and picture books of the area, as well as maps, all...

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...

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...
