My husband and I choose Arroyo Vista as a quick one night getaway and it was perfect. No complaints. The room was big and we had large windows with a great view. Breakfast was good and we we appreciated having two options, especially the low carb veggie omelette that fit my husbands dietary restrictions.

The Arroyo Vista Inn lived up to it's name, what a fabulous location, high in the shade of live oaks. As a former resident of Pasadena and fan of the California Craftsman style homes launched by local architects Greene & Greene, I was excited to discover this inn online. The staff was very accommodating when I called less than 24...

Great location, quiet, comfortable inn. Terrific breakfast. Owners and staff were delightful. Inn and room were spotless. Bed was comfortable. Will return many times from now on. However, will book directly with the inn (Janice) to ensure best price and room availability.

My husband & I needed a spot for one night in Pasadena as we traveled home to San Francisco from a visit to Tucson. We were delighted with the Arroyo Vista Inn! As our grown kids live nearby, we hope to be able to make a return visit in the near future. We appreciated sharing a glass of wine on...

We have lived in South Pasadena for 10 years and never knew Arroyo Vista Inn existed! Wanted to find a B&B without having to travel too far and kind of last minute towards the end of the year. WOW! Hidden gem , I know that term is cliche but this is true. From the moment you drive up the ramp,...

This is wonderfully restored 100+ yr old manor house perched on a hillside above the Pasadena Arroyo. The rooms are spacious for a house of that era. The common area's are also well furnished and interesting. The owner is very gracious and provides a great breakfast menu. If you come from the country as we do, or live in a...

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...
