It is an older building that they try to keep clean and operating but the colors in the room are not attractive; bathroom is small. There is only a shower (no tub) and a lot of water deposits on the shower door with sloppily done caulking. However, everything worked; the location is fine near the beach. For "breakfast" you walked... More

We stayed at this property for one night and got out as soon as we could early in the morning. The room appeared clean, but there was strong chemical smell (probably bleach) in the room and gave us terrible head ackes. The place was fully booked so we didn't bother asking for a different room.

The doors on the rooms were extremely heavy and difficult to shut, and every time anyone within ~5 room radius shut their door it was inappropriately loud. Furthermore, the guests staying at this hotel were screaming all night long, both nights of our stay. It is a hotel for young drunk kids- not a place for grown-ups. I would not... More

The hotel was older and has basic amenities, but is clean and the staff is friendly. There are restaurants within a short walking distant. For Santa Barbara, near the beach, it is reasonably price. Parking is best suited for compact cars. There is easy access to/from the freeway.

The hotel is nice, staff was helpful, we got pretty good breakfast. However it was quite noisy, from the room nextby, from outside, you even know somebody is going to toilet as hearing the water flushing. The smell in the room is wierd and not so comforting, not sure what it was.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 11, 2015

Nothing fancy here, but very clean, comfortable bedding and nice staff. The location is right by the harbor, and a 10 minute walk to the pier. If you want an inexpensive, clean place to stay, not bad for the price. My only complaint would be the noise from the adjoining room, and the people standing outside of my door conversing... More

hotel locate in the quiet area, 5 mins walk to the beach. There are many minimart nearby, so very convenient but a bit far from the town (20mins walk) It look like an old fashion hotel, one story, no lobby but staff does well maintenance, clean and still look great. They serve a continental breakfast, it was ok. Staffs are... More
