Staying in Santa Barbara was a last minute decision and we picked a good place to stay. We were early so we had to whittle away the time till check-in at the Santa Barbara Botanical Gardens and Mission. The desk staff was extremely pleasant and helpful. They have a nice pool and hot tub area which I took advantage of... More

Had originally been planning on staying at a different hotel but I messed up the reservation and we found this inn in a scramble. Location was excellent we walked to both the Urban Wine Trail and dinner, as well as being walking distance of beach. We did have a handicapped equipped room so the shower was boxy but still usable.... More

Myself and 3 friends travelled here while I was on holiday in San Fran for the graduation weekend in June 2012 and I could not find fault with the place. For the price we got a great, central location right beside the beach which was nice, quiet and secluded. The staff were very friendly especially the night porter Dave who... More

This is a small convenient motel within easy walk of beach and harbor. It was clean with nice rooms and a friendly staff at a reasonable price. About five minute drive to state st. Hot tub on cool night was nice feature. I would definitely stays there again.

We were pleasantly surprised to stumble upon this little gem in the heart of downtown SB. The location could not be any more ideal, with walking distance to the pier and street. The hotel staff were friendly and welcoming while the rooms were very clean and cozy. We would highly recommend this hotel to anyone planning to stay in the... More

We love this little inn near the harbor. It isn't ultra luxurious, but it is a charming little place. The staff is friendly, and we enjoyed our stay. The breakfast is not bad, but the lobby does tend to get quite crowded during breakfast time. The internet is free, albeit somewhat spotty at times.

The hotel was everything we expected. The staff was very friendly and they helped us eagerly. I had just broken my ankle and so we needed more assistance then usual. They got ice for us and carried trays for us etc. The pool was lovely. Only drawback is that the bathroom shower was not accessible. You had to have booked... More

Clean, generic 2-star motel. Great price for being 1 short block from the beach. Friendly staff. Extremely noisy if you end up with a first floor room, you can hear every footstep of the people above you. There is no soundproofing in the walls or ceiling. Insist on an upper floor room if this is an issue for you. Breakfast... More
