Once we arrived at The Inn at 657, our goal was to park our car and use public transportation and for four days that is what we did. The Inn's location is close to the train (and therefore the subway), the (DASH) shuttle and to bus lines.One afternoon we went to Union Station, Olvera Street and from there to Dodger...

This inn is quite inviting. Nice outdoor appearance, inviting entrance/lounge, snack available (although limited in choice). Breakfast is offered at two different times to accommodate schedules and it's quite a tasty and filling breakfast. We've stayed here a couple of times now and would definitely return. Wifi is iffy, very slow, at least in the evenings when we were there....

My visits to USC are always relaxing when I can return to Patsy's. The breakfast conversations are the best- families from all over to converse with while savoring the panna cotta. I enjoy the quiet walk through the neighborhood in the mornings and easy in/out process is a plus.

We chose this place because it was very close to The Shrine Auditorium & Expo where we had tickets for a show. We wanted to be able to walk from the inn to the event space. It was perfectly located for us, with the Shrine being only a 15 minute walk away. Located nearby are several places to pick up...

I was looking for a different experience than the traditional hotel experience I typically engage in when traveling to LA. I needed to be close to USC, and this inn proved to be at a perfect location. Less than 10 minutes away, with vibrant conversation over breakfast. It's an old house, with original furniture, but large rooms and inviting bathrooms....

I attended a meeting in Torrance, outside Los Angeles, last month, and decided to spend a couple of days in LA beforehand as a tourist since I'd never been there. I chose the Inn at 657 because of its reviews and location. A good choice! My room had ample space for me. Breakfast was large and varied, served family-style. I...

The location of The Inn is with in walking distance of Shrine Auditorium which is where our weekend seminar was located. It has beautiful curbside appeal and is very authentic. Our room had ample space with a bathroom that was also very ample. The bed was very comfortable ... something that is very important to us. We had a very...

We had another occasion to visit the Inn. I was officiating a wedding in the Rose Garden at Exposition park and knew this location would be perfect while we were there. They have made improvements to the grounds since our last visit. We were once again treated to excellent breakfasts and enjoyed the hospitality of Patsy and her daughters. We...

We reserved four rooms for USC's graduation weekend - with one of the rooms being a double. The rooms were adorable, decorated with antiques and well sized. The bathrooms were clean and water pressure was excellent. Of course the best part was the tasty full breakfast each morning. Fresh fruit, wonderful pastries and eggs. Patsy and her daughters were wonderful...
