My daughter and I just came back from a mid-week getaway to Santa Barbara. We loved the Inn! No frills (breakfast & wine), but clean, friendly and so affordable. The staff and hostess Eileen were perfect hosts and made sure we had everything we needed. Very close to the beach and everything else. I would stay over and over again!

we stayed in this sometimes B&B (only during high season do they serve breakfast and do a wine social late afternoon) twice this year. The first time we moved our son into UCSB during high season so the breakfast/wine social was going. If you think of going to visit grandma and the smells of her house and the good home... More

We visited Santa Barbara for the first time and stayed at this place. While well located the Inn is run down and desperately needs a serious make over. We stayed in their "annex", the top floor of a home across the street from the inn. Three bedrooms, one old bathroom and everything in need of a paint job. I can't... More

It has a great location and the free bike loans were the best part. One block to beach and then an easy bike ride all around SB. We were hoping for something a little more up to date in terms of the room itself. This has more to do with our taste vs. what the B&B promises in its ad.... More

Just returned from a girls' trip to Santa Barbara where we stayed at the Old Yacht Club Inn. It was pleasant and comfortable. The staff was friendly and accommodating and our suite was big enough for three, although the bathroom was understandably a bit of a challenge for us all to get ready. The Inn is near the beach and... More

We stayed for two nights during the first week of September. I thought I had booked "The Cottage" but when we arrived I found we were booked into the Santa Rosa Suite. The Santa Rosa Suite was very nice, upstairs with west facing windows. It's great for a romantic getaway. The location is just a block from the beach and... More

I have mixed feelings about the Old Yacht Club Inn and would not stay there again. My wife found it on Living Social and the price ($249 before tax for 2 nights), location and amenities sounded great. There was some good and some bad. We did not complain about the bad because we figured not much could be done about... More

We have stayed in the Cottage a few times and always love it. This b&b is a few blocks from the beach and a fairly quick bike ride from state street. The proprietors have always been very accommodating and have a lovely breakfast every morning. The Cottage is a stand alone unit in the back. It is not huge but... More

We are very happy that you enjoyed your two night stay at the Old Yacht Club Inn. Our bike selection does lend for leisurely morning rides along the breach.
