I recently stayed at the Jail House Inn to celebrate my boyfriend’s college graduation & we would not have had a better time. Noreen really outdid herself with all the immensely thoughtful details she put into our stay. There was literally no want that went unaddressed – from the very well stocked snack bar, to a super well appointed bathroom...

I personally have never stayed here but felt I should write a review based on all the positive things I've heard about it. It's located in the old police department building in Sierra Madre. That in itself is a beautiful thing. Both the town and the Inn should be on everybody's bucket list!!

Yes, this really is small. And yes, it was a real jail with two of the jail doors remaining. But what a nice little retreat in a nice little town. This place is Steps from the little Main Street with many restaurants. The owners are very thoughtful and helpful to make your stay fun. Many thoughtful extras are appreciated. A...

Went to Pasadena to see the Gamble House and came across The Jailhouse Inn searching thru B& B's for a one night stay. This place is over the top. This is the old Sierra Madre City Jail. The queen size bed fills one cell and the bathroom fills the other. There's enough room for a deputy to sit outside the...

While visiting our daughter who lives in Pasadena, my wife and I stayed at the Jailhouse Inn for three nights. When we booked I was a bit reluctant because there were no TripAdvisor reviews of this B&B (I am a big TripAdvisor fan and also a contributor). However, the website for the B&B was intriguing and this seemed to be...
