Arroyo Vista Inn, South Pasadena
Disappointing Diamond in the Rough
This Inn is a unique property in the hills above South Pasadena. I just wish it had lived up to the Inn's and reviewers' descriptions. The dirty rugs, spills on the bedroom wall paint, the lack of personal service and especially the fact that the "private" balcony for the Daybreak Terrace room is actually shared with two other rooms (whose guests walked out on the balcony in front of our french doors!) were all disappointing. The setting is unique and very beautiful but the ambiance is affected by the busy street noise below and the metro train passing by. The "gourmet" breakfast was scrambled eggs with bacon or sausage or french toast and some fruit. I was expecting a quiche, omelet or something more gourmet and the food prep was late the first morning. The wine and cheese and small bowl of mixed nuts was very nice except, again, the hosts weren't there to make it a personal and fun social hour. We intentionally book B & B's so we can get personal recommendations for restaurants, etc. and interact with the hosts and other guests. We clearly got the message beginning with the code to the front door, the self check in and out, etc. that the owners/hosts had no interest in interacting beyond what was necessary to choose the breakfast items or address an issue (thank you, Janice for dropping your breakfast prep duties to resolve the stuck bath tub plug.) We didn't have a bad experience but with little more effort, it could be a really special property.

Lovely Inn
We had a lovely stay at the Arroyo Vista Inn. Beautiful home, great views, delicious breakfast. The innkeepers were friendly and accommodating. Will definitely stay there again on our next trip to South Pasedena.

Musty Smell
This hotel is in an interesting and quiet setting. The grounds are nice. Our room was on the third floor and was very musty. The room smelled of mold. The only window was not operable, which would have improved the situation immensely. As we were trying to open the window one of the staff hollered up that the window did not open. When we told them the room smelled musty, they hollered back to turn on the ceiling fan and open the door. Which, we did, however as other guests walked down the hall they had a view into our room, which was uncomfortable.

Home away from home
I love this B&B! What a wonderful option in the area, since the hotels are usually large and expensive. The Inn is so cozy. After a long day I looked forward to the complimentary wine and cheese, and the warm chocolate chip cookies. The rooms are very comfortable, and all are different. We've enjoyed sharing the big breakfast with interesting people staying there. We chose the Inn because it is close to USC Keck Hospital and Pasadena, with the Norton Simon Museum and terrific history. The hip new neighborhood of Highland Park is 5 minutes away - cool bars, pizza and cafes. Don't miss the original ice cream parlor on Fair Oaks. Wonderful neighborhood for morning walk, too. Janice is a great host. We returned again and again!

So cozy and great owners
What a find! The perfect home away from home, especially if you’re visiting USC Keck Hospital. We’ll be back soon.
