Tucked away in the hills above the Arroyo Seco, The Arroyo Vista Inn provides a relaxed getaway in a secluded setting. More than just another chain hotel in Los Angeles, our historic bed and breakfast is actually a cozy yet spacious example of the classic Craftsman homes for which South Pasadena is famous.
Built in 1910, the Arroyo Vista Inn occupies a home designed by noted architect Lester Moore, and it is one of the few remaining examples of his residential design. To stay with us is to be transported back to an earlier, simpler, more peaceful time. When you check into the B&B, set away from the urban sprawl of Los Angeles and the academic bustle of Pasadena, you feel like you’ve escaped to a quieter, gentler world.
After a two-year green restoration process, the Arroyo Vista Inn opened to rave reviews in 2007 and continues to receive exceptional reviews today. The hotel palette is soothing, and subtly reflects the colors of rustic Los Angeles, in tones like sage, butter, adobe, and sky. Walls throughout the inn feature lovely art from Pat’s personal collection.
Our nine unique rooms offer beautiful views, cozy beds, and modern amenities such as cable and complimentary wireless internet. Retreat to the Arroyo Vista Inn and each day you'll enjoy impeccable service, gourmet breakfasts featuring fresh fruits and vegetables from our garden, and afternoon refreshments of wine and cheese.
