I had stayed at this hotel a few years back with some girlfriends and loved the location & eclectic/ European feel of this property, so I was excited to take my husband here for our 30th wedding anniversary. The location is great (across the street from beach) and the grounds are pretty. The things we didn't like (usually not complainers!)-... More

We wanted beach front location and we got it. But, for the price I'm not sure it was worth it. Front desk and all service was excellent and really wanted to please. But, the hotel's amenities just left us wanting. For example, no a/c required a decision. Open the window and let the road noise in or close the window... More

As previous reviewers have said this place looks a lot different in the photos than in reality. That reality is closer to a motel than a hotel, no air con and even the toaster was broken at breakfast. I've never posted a poor review on Tripadvisor before but the amount our stay cost us and compared to the other hotels... More

This place is beautiful, right by the beach, really charming. It is expensive and we're staying here for almost $300/night for 7 nights, possibly picking up another room later in the week for someone else to join us. Night #1: 10:15pm-12:45pm - room directly above us had someone walking around the wood floors and running water. I don't know what... More

My husband and I stayed here for two nights during our honeymoon. This hotel is overpriced for what you get and much more "dated" than the pictures suggest. There is no air-conditioning (which was most unpleasant during a heat-wave) and the location is very noisy for leaving windows open. The service was good, and if you're after a place by... More

I think the most special in this hotel it was the treatament. When we arrived in our room there were a bottle of wine and a welcome letter. Great view, good room, very clean, silent and confortable bed! The balcony is so charming! The only one problem.. they dont give late checkout and the time for you leave is 11:00... More

Free bikes were the highlight. My family was able to bike all over Santa Barbara while we waited for our room to become available. Only one pool was open during our visit so it was way too crowded but with the beach right across the street we had options.

This location is great. Right by the water, quick walk to wine tasting, easy to walk to downtown for dinner. The property is nice, a little bit spread out. It's a little bit dated. Our room could really use a shower upgrade. But overall the hotel is nice.

We went here for a girls weekend/bachelorette party! The hotel was super cute and we loved taking their bikes around the beach. I will definitely stay again! We had 3 people in our room which was very spacious.
