"Bed and Breakfast Inns of California." Videotour. $19.95. Usually Victorian homes that have been converted into flavorful hostels, these cozy establishments follow the British tradition of quaintly domestic rooms (many with fireplaces) and innkeeper-style service. This hourlong video surveys 33 mostly coastal inns, with ample interior views and narration by each manager. The technical quality (particularly in the sound) is low, but you get a better idea of each place than even the most lavish guidebook could provide. A 25-page booklet with rates, etc., is included. Information: 213-855-2477.
