Ice water and cookies in the lobby. Rooms very clean and nice. Our balcony on the third floor looked at the local park and had a view... More

We stayed for one night to break the driving trip between San Francisco and LA. Whilst it is an older property it offered everything we needed. It was very clean and well equipped. The location is also excellent - we were within walking distance of the wharf and the Main Street. The parking is cheap and the staff very welcoming... More

WE had to book the same evening and really lucked out with the location and the breakfast with real bacon. The property has a quaint vibe from the late 60's, early 70's. Beach is beautiful and right across the street and parking is a deal at only $3 a night! Walls are a little thin, but we slept like babies... More

We visited the Santa Barbara zoo and planned to stay just one night, but were so happy we decided to stay one more night. The front desk was very helpful and had fresh made cookies. We enjoyed the proximity to the wharf. We also enjoyed the warm pool with our 1 year old.

The location was within walking distance to State St., Stearns Wharf and other sites. There was a shuttle as well. We loved everything about our stay especially the warm, fresh baked... More

Great convenient location for harbor and restaurants. Staff is extremely friendly and outgoing making your stay even more enjoyable. We had a harborside 2 queen room with plenty of room to spare, not to mention the amenities. Would highly recommend this property if you are going to be in Santa Barbara.

Great location across from beach. Can walk to Stearns wharf and the marina. Electric shuttle stops across the street, goes along beach and can transfer to State St. Very convenient. No need to drive to enjoy SB. Very nice breakfast buffet. So accommodating-noticed I wasn't eating cereal (I'm lactose intolerant) and when they found out bought me almond milk! Never... More
