Recently stayed here for three nights with family whilst travelling the central coast. The check in was quick and efficient with a warm welcome. Our rooms were well appointed, well maintenained and very clean and smelt nice. We had a first floor room which over looked the gardens and pool and fire pit area, the gardens are lovely and relaxing... More

4 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

The room was very clean but on the small side, we were unable to bring our cases into the room as there wasn't enough space to put them or our clothes. We had a pleasant balcony with a lovely view. The downside of this motel is it is not near State street or the beaches and it doesn't provide breakfast.

We only stayed here the one night but were very pleased by our choice. The staff were friendly and helpful, we had asked for a quiet room away from the pool and got that, it comes with a small patio to sit outside and enjoy the day. Room comes with free Wi Fi and good size T.V. Bed were comfortable... More

Off the beaten path....meaning nowhere near the ocean. Much better priced than the hotels near the ocean....but the only thing in walking distance is the mall across the street. Very clean hotel....updated.....friendly staff. The only questionable thing was that they call one apple and one orange a complimentary in-room fruit basket.....

The location is on State St., which takes you straight into Santa Barbara in minutes. A shopping... More

We just took 9 teenagers and 3 moms for a retreat to Santa Barbara for the weekend. We were very satisfied with our accommodations. Since we had four to a room, it was important for the sink and mirror to be separate from the tub/shower and toilet area. The rooms are nicely decorated and one mom really enjoyed the leather...

Our group appreciates bing able to park our motorcycles near our rooms. Plenty of outlets in the rooms to charge our numerous electronics used on motorcycles. Staff provided towels to wipe down our bikes after a rain strom. Staff was friendly and suggested a great place to have dinner within walking distance. Overall... great stay!
