The inn is back from the beach but an easy walk. The rooms are good with all the required facilities and very clean. The staff are very helpful and this follows on for features like a bottle of wine in the room on arrival. A very good continental buffet breakfast which we ate outside in the garden, the wine and...

While the name says it's on the beach, it is actually 2 blocks away. Easily walkable. The hotel rooms are showing a little age, although the rooms are clean. The grounds are nice. The breakfast was quite good for a continental breakfast, DNS the staff were helpful and friendly. If you're looking for good value, but not something super special... More

The location of this hotel is PERFECT walking distance to beach, harbor, State Street shopping and wineries, but why walk when they let you use their bikes for FREE? Yep, just one of the many perks at this charming hotel. Mornings offer free breakfast, pastries, muffins, cereal, juice, coffee & tea in their lovely lobby. Afternoon Happy Hour offers a... More

I can't say enough great things about this place. Only stayed one night, but they impressed me so much, I will definitely be back. Went to check in, and the front desk staff was having a hard time finding my room reservation, due to the fact that I had gone through another travel agency to book. No fault of their... More

An ageing property that has been spruced up. Rooms are very clean and seem to have undergone a refurbishment, but the ancient louvre windows can let in noise from guests and staff passing by your room. The motel is in the process of replacing these with proper sealed windows. Staff at check-in were very friendly and the evening wine and... More

We stayed at this hotel for one night in November 2014. All the staff was very nice, friendly and knowledgeable about the area. When we checked in the man (William) in the reception took his time and gave us great tips what we can do in Santa Barbara. They upgraded us free from charge in a suite which was a... More

I booked a stay for November back in March based on all the positive reviews. But I'm perplexed about all the adoration. I guess I'll never know. We realized this was our third Santa Barbara stay in three years. I chose this place strictly for its location -- I ran in the Veteran's Day race and wanted to be walking... More

After staying in different hotels nearly every day for 2 weeks was great to be able to kick back and chill out for 6 nights in one place. Not disappointed on arrival. Staff fantastic, friendly, helpful, informed us of things not just within hotel, but anything we asked them. Room 30 was just what we needed, lovely and big. plenty... More
