This B&B is situated on a hillside with lovely views of South Pasadena. Parking is available right in front of the inn, making for easy access and transport of luggage. Prior to arrival, we were emailed a code to enter the inn and had no difficulty using it to gain access inside. As we were signing in, a young man...

Thank you for taking time to write the review. We always appreciate feedback. Sorry that Michael our afternoon attendant didn't give you an appropriate greeting. He is my special needs son who helps us out at the Inn. He has auditory processing issues and sometimes doesn't respond to normal social queuing. We are working with him on this. We think...

This B &B was a great find thanks to a local friend. I enjoyed the amenities, cleanliness, quality food and drinks and friendliness of the staff and fellow guests. I found the technology (internet and TV) to be robust and fast. Also, the free close in parking was a big plus!

The Arroyo Vista Inn is a lovely property; really an Arts & Crafts style Inn with perhaps 10-12 rooms. The Inn is set nicely on a hillside with lovely views, the rooms are clean and comfortable and the common areas are pleasant. Good marks for that, and for the beautiful family. However, the less good stuff: a) Bathrooms were not...

-heating fan noise on / off all night. -Carpet, old wood varnish and kitchen smells. A good clean up and ventilation can help. -breakfast; scrambled eggs and toast, that's it ! -body wash soap empty and was not replaced.

We were so pleased at the B&B, the home is incredible, the first floor has a rather large and spacious sitting area with couches, chairs and game tables. When you arrive there are fresh cookies, cheese and crackers, wine, soft drinks, coffee and tea. The area was just so comfortable to just sit and chat. Our room, #1, was also...

Arroyo Vista Inn is a delightful place that combines the warmth of a B&B with the amenities and style of a boutique hotel. Getting there is easy, with a door code to facilitate late arrivals, and while the neighborhood isn't exactly bustling, there's a coffee shop nearby and the metro train to Pasadena is a pleasant 10 minute walk away....

I had no idea I had booked myself in such a charming place when I got this booking through expedia. The building and setting are lovely, with wonderful verandas and patios that I used frequently. The breakfast is very good. Best of all, the other guests were all a delight to meet and talk to at breakfast. Most of the...

This is a charming B&B literally nestled into the Arroyo hillside of one of LA's most charming suburban neighborhoods. The Craftsman-style home is beautifully appointed and very comfortable; staff very pleasant and lots of beautiful, sweeping vistas from the guest rooms. It's off of a relatively busy local street, but - one narrow, winding and rather steep driveway later -...

Our family stayed here in September and had a very peaceful and wonderful stay. Both rooms we had were all very well-kept and climate-controlled which was terrific during a heat wave in the Los Angeles area. We slept very comfortably and soundly. The Inn is set up on a hill on a nice patch of land away from the street...

The great: The Arroyo Vista is a lovely place. We found it to be clean, the room (the Oak Terrace), is spacious, has a nice big tub, and has great views and 2 balconies you can use/share.

Knansea, Thank you for staying with us and your kind review. We fully appreciate it. The Oak Terrace is one of our favorite rooms and has a great balcony. But you are right that it might have some noise from the train and the road. We have some rooms on the other side the house that are as exposed to...
