We stayed here on our Pacific Coast Highway drive in December 2010. It was only a one-night stay, but the place was simply wonderful. The room was spacy and well equipped, it had everything we needed, and there was even a self-served breakfast that got us started for the remainder of our drive (LA, than Las Vegas).

I've stayed here before and it is pleasant but this time I noticed the dusty lamps, lack of ice, minimal continental breakfast and needing to use overflow parking on the street. Not as convenient or charming as previous visits. Might look elsewhere the next time.

A lovely property. Although the room is not large but it has everything you need. Very comfortable bed with fluffy pillows which I like. Very clean. Complete amenities. Nice TV. Excellent service. Susan and Jeff were so friendly and helpful during check-in time. Good value for money. We were recommended a restaurant in downtown called Sama Sama Test Kitchen which... More

The room had a perfect size and very nice decoration, very very nice windows, the bed was comfortable, the shower was quite good and the whole suite was clean and neat. Susan,who helped us checking in, was very helpful, she sent us emails with lots of information on what to do in Santa Barbara. The breakfast was very very simple

Clean, comfortable and economical classic motel. The nearby traffic noise abated before a collapsed into a comfortable bed - to sleep soundly until awakening for the somewhat austere self-serve breakfast. Great for the traveller - especially if wishing to spend their money more on scenery, sites and good food rather than over-inflated chain hotel prices.

The woman who works there is very kind and knows a lot about the area, so ask her if you want a great restaurant recommendation or the like. The rooms are quaint and have great pictures in them. Highly recommended for a short stay.

When we arrived, we were charmed by the friendly staff, spacious room, and cute decor. However, the room was noisy! Plumbing noise from above, street noise from outside, and talking from the outside breakfast area marred our stay. If you are a heavy sleeper, or wake up early, this might be a good choice. Not for us, however! I thought... More

Locations not great.We took our 2 1/2 year old , not good for toddlers . There is absolutely no outdoor space. If... More

Was very pleasantly surprised. Wanted to take the in-laws for a short getaway to Santa Barbara and Solvang, now one never knows when you book an old fashioned motel, what your going to find; we found a great little hidden gem. Exceptional value, clean, nicely decorated rooms. minor negative of a scorch mark from an iron on the floor. gotta... More
