Sanborn Guest House--love it!

5 on March 20, 2015

A quiet, convenient location just off a long block off Sunset Blvd. in Silver Lake. Note: there is no onsite dining, just a well-furnished kitchen for one's use, to be shared with one other room.


A Wonderful Stay

4.2 on March 18, 2015

We absolutely loved our stay at the Sanborn Guest House. It was incredibly convenient - Silver Lake is extremely walkable, and Sanborn is in a great location. Gary and Jaime provided a lovely place to stay, free parking, and great recommendations for local dining (there's a kitchen at the house, but no food is served) and entertainment. We had the privacy we desired as well as the comforts of home. I would stay here again in a heartbeat!

Great change from a hotel. Was very relaxing and quiet.


A perfect budget stay in a great neighborhood

We enjoyed our stay in the Sanborn Guest Room. It was small and quirkily laid out but not too small, and exceedingly comfortable, with all the amenities we needed. Checkin and checkout went perfectly smoothly and our host was the epitome of politeness. Th neighborhood is one I know well and well worth staying in for its easily accessible restaurants, shops, and general vibe. All in all an excellent experience!


A Great Place To Stay Off Sunset Boulevard

This is a really nice guest house - private, very comfortable, clean, and with all the amenities. It is situated on a quiet street and the owners are unobtrusive but helpful. There are excellent places to dine within walking distance. I thoroughly enjoyed my stay there and recommend it highly. Excellent value.


Our Stay at the Sanborn Guest House

5 on January 17, 2015

Our son was going to be starting a semester at Emerson College's Los Angeles campus. We flew out from Boston to help him get settled. Before we left, we researched various hotels close to the campus for our stay. Since we would be renting a car, parking was a concern. We found that most hotels that provided parking seemed to want $40 to $50 a day for that option. We then started to look at guest house alternatives and came upon the Sanborn Guest House. We were glad we found this great deal of an alternative. The rooms (we not only had a bedroom, a sitting room, and a private bath , but we also had use of a fully supplied kitchen!) were very clean and comfortable and felt more like a home than a hotel. Included in the price of the rooms was off street, gated parking. It was also just a 10 minute drive from the Emerson campus. If we have reason to go back to Los Angeles, we would definetly stay here again. Also, it's just down the street from a very funky section (cool stores, coffee shops, eateries, etc.) of town called the Silver Lake region. We would highly recommend the Sanborn Guest House to anyone searching for a relaxing place to stay in Los Angeles.


Silverlake hideaway

4.0 on January 09, 2015

OK...for me, this place is perfect. Clean comfortable accommodation, secure parking for small car in the yard. Communal kitchen. Shared shower and washroom....but there are only two units so it is never a problem. WIFI that works perfectly. And just steps from Sunset Junction. Very reasonable rates. Owners are pleasant and helpful....but keep their distance. Indicated dining expectations...but this refers to surrounding area as Sanborn House does not offer breakfast etc. This is the only place I stay when in the Los Angeles area....it is so quiet.


Best location B&B

The owner was very accommodating -- we had to check in on the late side and that was ok. The place was comfortable, clean and in a great location in Silver Lake.


Quiet, charming location

4.2 on December 21, 2014

Sanborn Guest House is in a quiet neighborhood just off of Sunset. Close to Hollywood, Los Feliz attractions and a short hop to the freeway. Comfortable room with shared kitchen between the two guest rooms. Complimentary off-street parking. Hosts are accessible but not intrusive.
