We have stayed at Sanborn House many times and LOVE it! You cannot beat the location, the fact that you have off street parking, the price (VERY reasonable), access to a shared kitchen (always with very congenial guests who you may or may not bump into), your private bathroom, a comfortable bed and charming hosts. What more could one ask for? Whenever we travel to LA we plan our trips around the availability of Sanborn House. Staying here will make you feel like an Angelino. How do they do it for their super reasonable price? Shhhh, don't tell anyone how GREAT Sanborn House is. I feel like it should stay our very own LA secret!

Room Tip: Sanborn House offers two rooms--one with a sitting room and one without. One with sitting room feels...

We selected Sanborn House based on the good ratings and found that they are all well earned. Cozy, comfortable and very clean room with private bathroom and a shared kitchen for coffee, tea and breakfast. Although the other room was also occupied we never experienced any bother. Each room has its own front door.
Hosts are very friendly, supportive and show great hospitality. Well recommended!

My husband and I stayed here the last weekend in January. The location is central to many places in L.A. and there are a ton of great restaurants located within walking distance (I highly recommend Cliff's Edge for dinner!). The general area is very eclectic and has a hipster vibe. The gated off-street parking is nice. We stayed in the suite which was immaculately clean and sweetly decorated. Gary greeted us upon arrival and gave us a general rundown of things. He was friendly but not overbearing and left us to our own devices the whole time we were there. The cost of this place can't be beat for the location and accommodations. As long as you're pretty self-sufficient and aren't a super needy kind of guest then this place will be great for you.

Room Tip: We liked the suite because of the extra space.

What a wonderful place! Gary is the consummate host, attentive and welcoming. The house is well situated in a very hip part of town with an abundance of shops and eateries within a very short walk. The suite itself was clean comfortable and nicely priced. Gated off street parking is a big plus. Would recommend this in a heart beat.

Just loved this place for our visit to the Hollywood area. It was clean, had gated off street parking, large bedroom and living room and it felt like staying at a friends home. Cafes, coffee houses and great restaurants just one block away. Easy access to lots of places of interest. And it was so quiet which we did not expect. When we return to this area we will stay at Sanborn House again for sure.....

Room Tip: We recommend the room with the living room....it is so big for two people....
