Our party had three rooms at the inn. We all enjoyed our night there. Our room was a nice size with plantation shutters. It was very quiet and clean. There was no microwave but there was a refrigerator (with a complementary bottle of sparking wine and two bottles of water.) There was a separate area with an armoire and a... More

Cannot quite put my finger on it but this hotel has staff, ambiance, and location which enticed us to stay an extra day. 2 block from the beach, great food nearby, simple yet tasty breakfast, wine and cheese in the late afternoon, and the milk and cookies in the evening. Oh, did I mention the free use of bikes and... More

We arrived later in the day having been sent by another motel in the group and were received with great warmth and hospitality, and just in time for happy hour which was a very convivial event with cheese and biscuits and wine. Our room was spacious and very comfortable, and breakfast was excellent. We will definitely return if we ever... More

It's a motel, quite simply. But the staff provides such impeccable service and such wonderful amenities, that you won't mind at all. From breakfast that includes fresh pastries from the local bakery, to bikes available free of charge, to afternoon wine and cheese, to cookies and milk in the evening, you simply feel pampered all day long. In addition, the... More

My boyfriend and I had an excellent stay here last weekend. We wanted to stay longer! The free amenities (wine and cheese in the afternoon, cookies and milk at night, LOTS of free movies to rent, champagne and water in the fridge) were amazing! We definitely took advantage of all of those things. The pool and spa were very nice,... More

The wine and cheese tasting was great for me and my husband and our daughter enjoyed the cookies and milk. But mostly this place just felt like home. The only thing... More

Walking distance to beach and boardwalk. Walking distance to downtown. Many, many restaurants near by. The food in Santa Barbara is great. The room we stayed in was not room but a deluxe suite. Kitchen, living area, extra, extra large bathroom, and bedroom and entry hall. outdoor private balcony
