Good size for one person, excellent location, only 2 major issues. The first issue deals more with cleanliness, with a large quantity of bugs finding their way in and mold on walls throughout the room. The second is a communication/accuracy issue, the "included breakfast" is not actually included but costs extra, something I was only told after I arrived. A huge disappointment since part of my decision process for living there 11 weeks involved the free breakfast.

Response from Janice:
Breakfast was never advertised as 'free' with this studio airbnb rental. At Arroyo Vista Inn, breakfasts are included when guests book their rooms, as their room rate reflects the cost of breakfast. At $65 a night for a private small studio with beautiful view in South Pasadena, I can't possibly include breakfast with this price. Further more, cleanness issue mentioned is purely due to the fact your rental was almost 3 months long. During this time, room cleaningness was responsibility of the renter. I didn't get one chance to go inside to clean your room. I assumed you took care of the housekeeping while living in the studio for your own sake, as would anyone who lease a studio would do. Airbnb charges one cleaning fee for your entire stay. Please understand Airbnb is affordable because there is no daily house keeping like a hotel. That said, studio would not have issues with mold or bugs if it had been cleaned at least once a week. This was not discussed prior or during your stay, my lesson taken from your complain is that next time there is a long term guest, I will insist housekeeping be mandatory by me once a week to ensure the cleaningness.

The studio unit was perfect for my one-month stay and transition to the San Francisco Bay Area. There is a private bathroom and enough closet and storage space for my belongings, and Janice gave me access to an onsite washer/dryer during my stay. I was able to request a late check-in time upon my arrival. This unit is located next to a charming Bed & Breakfast establishment that offers breakfast on a daily basis, but for an extra cost. The unit is situated on a hillside with a nice view of South Pasadena. There was enough parking space in the front.

I really enjoyed staying at Janice's place! Janice is very helpful. Her place is clean, comfortable and has everything I needed. And best part it is a private room, no sharing bathroom, fridge or tv with Netflix. And the room is quiet and views beautiful. If you are traveling alone this place it perfect.

This is a nice, cozy room, up on a hill with a great view of Pasadena. It's an easy walk to the Gold Line. The space is clean and private. Janice is very professional and responds quickly to texts. I enjoyed staying here and highly recommend it to others.
