Wonderful resort with great rooms and service. The wine & cheese and cookies are a great plus. Truly enjoyed our stay. Room 7 is huge and a fabulous room. We sat outside on the deck and enjoyed the SoCal weather with wine and cheese.

The hotel is not new and that lends to its charm. The architectural style is what you would expect for Santa Barbara. With its stucco and Spanish tiles, the hotel feels like it has been here for ages. The hotel is conveniently located and close to the beach. The staff is very helpful and friendly. I would have given the... More

The friendly and caring welcome was topped by the complimentary offers in the lobby, like one knows it from club-offers of 5-star-hotels. Also the complimentary breakfast with comparatively great choices for this "continental breakfast" is a real plus. Do on the other side not expect more from the room than the official stars of this inn indicate. Important to know:... More

I made a reservation at this hotel based on TripAdvisor's ratings and affordable cost. It seems like all the hotels in the Santa Barbara area have inflated rates. I was able to beat the hotel's rate by searching online. When we arrived, I felt like I was going back in time (1950s-60s) and staying at a motel on a cross... More

We drove the coast from San Diego to San Francisco. Hands down this Inn was the best all around place we stayed. The only drawback was the size of the room There were four of us: my husband and I and 2 teens, but since we were only in the room after dinner it didn't matter too much. Everyone was... More

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
