“basic but nice”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 10, 2012

got here after an over night greyhound from san francisco at 6am and reception opened at 7am which was a bit annoying. We were allowed to leave our bags in the small reception area till we could check in.

It has the basics, comfy bed, clean bathroom, fridge and tv. There is a tiny pool but wasn't used.

It's a small place as all the rooms were on the ground floor surrounding the carpark. it is very close to the beach and very close to the pier as well. Its about 30min walk to the main road where all the shops and restaurants are but there is a little shuttle that operates on the main road.

Good location and a decent price considering the cost of other places in the area. Clean, neat and tidy place and about 5-10 minute walk to the beach. Jacuzzi was nice but no pool unfortunately. Fridge, tv and coffee making facilities. Had to bring breakfast back to room which was not nice. Overall, a decent place for a stopover but not an extended period.

Room Tip: I would say that all rooms appear to be the same.

We were very impressed with this motel, particularly for the location. It is within walking distance of the beach and the main shopping & restaurant areas. We did not need to use the car for our two day stay in Santa Barbara. It is clean and the gentleman at the front desk was very sweet and helpful. Free wi-fi and parking is an added bonus. Complimentary continental breakfast is also provided.
I would highly recommend this motel as an affordable and satisfactory place to stay in Santa Barbara.

This motel is too expensive for what you get in return
the only nice thing is that you are very close to the beach.
the rooms are clean and there is not a pool.
the breakfast is less simpel , and you can get it at the frontdesk.
the beds are small .

Room Tip: there are cheaper motels but you have to make a reservation ....

We stayed for 1 night in June 2012 as a stopover on a driving holiday. Booking in was excellent with very friendly helpful staff. The room was very nice and clean and surprisingly spacious. Fantastic location within easy walking distance to shopping and excellent restaurants (which reception is able to advise on). Free parking on-site and free internet was an added bonus. Would recommend this hotel without hesitation.

Walk-able to the main street and the beach. Nothing special but the best price we could find in the area. Only complaint is that it was somewhat noisy at night.
