We enjoyed a lovely stay at the Inn. We went for a "girls weekend" and booked two rooms. We arranged to drop off our luggage early in the day and found our keys waiting for us. We also were able to arrange for a slightly earlier breakfast time to accomodate our plans for the following day. The living room was a very comfortable spot for enjoying the wine and cheese and there's also a roomy porch with plenty of seating at the entrance. Pat was a gracious hostess and breakfasts were very good. She isn't there all the time but we pretty much made ourselves at home and enjoyed the living room (and more wine) after dinner one night. Monterey Road isn't an attractive street but once you drive up the narrow driveway, the oak trees around the house give the inn a nice feeling. I'd definitely recommend the inn. It's convenient not only for the greater Pasadena area but also a short freeway drive to downtown.
