We stayed at the Bissell House when we had to travel from San Diego to L.A. on business and did not want to make the drive twice in one day. Chose the Bissell House for its proximity to the city and value. Arrived late, but our room was ready and we were greeted at the door. The room was adorable, very clean, lovely linens and comfortable bed. The room was small but made up for its size in charm. The next morning we went down for the seated breakfast. Expresso was made to order, the delicious quiche was accompanied by fresh fruit and scones. We shared our meal with two other couples, and had such lovely conversation with them. The grounds are beautiful. I would like to come back here and do a few tourist things in L.A., and spend a little more time at the House. I would definately come back here for the hospitality and charm.

The Bissell House is a beautiful place to stay when visiting Los Angeles, Nestled away from the busy freeways, yet with easy access it offers the amenities of a modern 4 star hotel but in a Victorian setting. The innkeepers and staff are ready to help and accommodate. Definitely will be back.

I thoroughly enjoyed discussing the history of this gracious, historic b & b with our wonderful hostess, Julie. The breakfasts were amongst the best I've ever had - anywhere! Everything was homemade and fresh, and the presentation was beautiful. We're definitely returning, even though we live less than 25 miles away. It was a perfect retreat during my Occidental College reunion!

My husband was reluctant to stay at a B & B. To be short, this was exceptionally clean....no cobwebs, no stray dead bugs. Very, very clean. The food was great and the gals working there were helpful and friendly without being fake. Much better than staying at a hotel, even a high priced hotel.
