We stayed here for three nights while in Santa Barbara. We had a king room, the place was clean and updated. The outdoor grounds were very relaxing for a morning coffee or an afternoon cocktail. The location was very convenient a short walk to the beach, Stearns Wharf, restaurants and State Street. The hotel staff was very helpful. They had... More

We stayed at this motel whilst on a four week road trip around California and Nevada. We only booked one night but we really enjoyed our stay. It's a great place to stay! When we arrived we received a very warm welcome by the lovely ladies in reception. We were allocated a really nice room and it looked as if... More

A fabulous Motel right near the beach with beautifully decorated spacious rooms including air conditioning and free parking right outside. Our room had a lovely walk in shower (glass door) and lovely quality white fluffy towels. A basic continental breakfast was included and was ok and we enjoyed sitting out in a courtyard type area. We took advantage of the... More

Stayed here for 2 nights. Easy to find on satnav and enough parking, in front of our room. The room was comfortable clean and adequately furnished with air conditioning. The hotel is in a quiet suburban location just a few minutes walk to the beach, pier, marina and a few more minutes to the centre of town, bars and winery... More

What a gem. The perfect place to be close to everything, yet removed from all the hubbub. Rooms were neat and clean, WITH AIR CONDITIONING! Many of the "premiere" hotels claim it is not needed. (Tell me that when the temps are in the high 80's) Excellent service, Hats off to Andy for recommending all the beast places. Everything is... More

We only stayed 1night breaking our journey down Highway 1 but found this Motel very comfortable, good parking right outside our room. The room facilities were good, comfortable bed, free wifi. Free bikes to use, breakfast was adequate, staff very helpful.The best feature was its closeness to the beach and seafront area, a 5 minute walk.

Close to the beach, an easy walk downtown, great restaurants near by. And, CLEAN. Awesome shower. Was concerned there would be noise as there was a door leading to the next room, but it wasn't an issue. We will be back.
