“Comfortable for the night”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed February 7, 2014

Stayed here for one night on a road trip with my dog. I was in room 101 in the back by the pool. The room was petite, but had everything you need. The bed was a queen and comfortable. I did not notice any noise through the night and slept well. The bathroom was a good size but had only a shower. I had no problems and the staff was congenial.

Hi Robert,
Glad we could take care of you and you're dog. Hope your dog got to enjoy some of the treats we provide here as well. Most of our "pet guests" actually request that room for its convenience to the park, street and everywhere your little friend enjoys..

See you soon I heard...

Stayed here for a friends wedding and it was a great experience. The staff here are great. From the front desk staff, breakfast gal, to housekeeping were always smiling. Fresh back cookies at check-in. Room was cozy and clean. Location is to die for, right across the street from harbor. General Manager, Harvey is the best!

We stayed there last weekend and let me tell you this place is a hidden gem. Right across the street from the harbor and a short distance to the pier. Loved it.

The service at the hotel was above and beyond. Breakfast what you would expect for the hotel, free is always good.

Ran our morning jog along the beach was great.

For the price and location we will be back again.

Hi Paul,

Thanks for the honest feedback. Always appreciated and addressed. Our apologies for the "party" we all heard about. We did get them to quiet down unfortunately after a few guests mentioned it to us. We take noise issues very seriously and handle them immediately when we are informed.
As for the homeless, Santa Barbara is overwhelmed with those in need, and the city and police constantly do their best to keep all "in check" as best as humanly possible. We are grateful our amazing city provides numerous resources to assist those in "dire straits" and we all have learned to contend with the issue.

All the best!!!

Right across from the harbor and walking distance to State Street. Well maintained. Comfortable rooms with balcony and view. Excellent restaurant next door. Parking is $3 /night. Comfortable beds and very quiet considering the location on the waterfront.

We stayed at a beautiful island which had amazing sights especially with all the islands around. During the sunset the view was breathtaking. The people are friendly and welcoming. The restaurants on seafront were really nice with friendly staff. The food served was finger licking.

I was looking for a reasonbly priced hotel near the Pier and didn't want to spend a lot of money for just a quick overnight stay. For a older hotel, the rooms were updated and very clean. I always worry about the beds in hotels, but they were comfortable and fresh. We had a view of the harbor and were able to walk everywhere. The staff was outstanding and very friendly! Heidy, at the front desk, is awesome and so personable! I will stay there again.
