This is a stately refurbished victorian style home, happily, retrofitted to be "Green". The rooms are spacious and graciously furnished with period pieces. The owner, Pat, along with her week-end chef assistant serve beautiful, healthful, and delicious breakfasts. The living room always has home baked chocolate chip cookies under a glass cover, and wine and cheese are offered at the...

We have stayed twice at the Arroyo Vista Inn and highly recommend it. We love Room #2 which overlooks the San Gabriel Mountains and has a porch and full glass windows. The rooms have armoires instead of closets, traditional wooden furniture, decent bathrooms, bathrobes, and comfortable beds. The Inn is up a long narrow driveway. It has a lovely downstairs...

Went to the Arroyo Vista Inn for a romantic weekend and it was perfect. The room was wonderful. We enjoyed sitting on the porch with a great view of the valley below and sipped wine. Breakfast was very special. Thank you Pat.

We enjoyed many things about Arroyo Vista Inn but will highlight a few that were especially impressive to us. The location is beautiful!!

The Good - a beautiful house, very clean and well maintained. Great location in South Pasadena. Walking distance to the Metro station on Mission and to the farmers market also on Mission. Good coffee shop at the end of the block - you will need it:) Rooms are simple but nice. We asked for an extra bed as our adult...

I was very sorry to learn these guests were so displeased with their stay. I observed the parents fly by me, dogs in tow, as they checked in. They barely spoke. My conclusion (now obviously incorrect)s that these guests seemed reticent, which is totally fine; we get all kinds of personalities here. I personally served them breakfast myself on both...

We love the Arroyo Vista Inn. From the wine and cheese reception to the fabulous gourmet breakfast, it cannot be topped. We live very close but we feel like we are miles and miles away. The room was so comfortable. We felt welcomed from the minute we stepped on the gorgeous property. We are making this an annual tradition.

We loved our quiet, cozy 3rd floor room after a busy day visiting Los Angeles area colleges. Following a delicious breakfast of Mediterranean quiche, toasted artisan bread, wonderful coffee, and fresh squeezed OJ, we were off to Occidental College -- less than 10 minutes away. This is a beautiful, gracious historic property lovingly maintained, up a long curved driveway, nestled...

I stayed at Arroyo Vista Inn for six nights in July 2013. It is perched on a hillside, in the trees. It has spacious comfortable indoor rooms and even better porch furniture, where you can be in shade or sun, and view mountains and more trees. There are guidebooks and picture books of the area, as well as maps, all...
