Best B&B for When Your Parents Visit You in Silver Lake (2011)

Sanborn Guest House

So you landed in Silver Lake after art school. You've got three roommates and your temp job barely covers the rent. Your parents are wondering what you're up to. You've got a video installation that's opening soon, and you know it's not their thing. But y'know what, they want to connect. So you invite them out. But here's the dilemma: Where will they stay? Not with you and your roommates, and not at the Comfort Inn. Try the Sanborn Guest House. It's quiet, charming and only a block from Sunset Junction. The rooms are reasonably priced ($85 for the room, $110 for the suite). They've also added some newer options: a nearby apartment (Tyler's Place) and a studio in Echo Park. One caveat: It fills up fast, so book well in advance. 1005 Sanborn Ave., Silver Lake; (323) 666-3947,
