“New management is awesome!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 19, 2013 via mobile

Me and a friend of mine did a road trip all the way from Canada. We stayed at many hotels along the way and I must say this place gave us a peace of mind. The rooms very comfortable, clean, quiet and the decor was very friendly.The new owners of the hotel were kind, friendly and went the extra mile unlike the typical hotel staff you get. The price was fair the location was great, easy access to state street where a majority of the restraunts and shops are. I recommend this motel to anyone who is staying in the Santa Barbara area.
