We drove up, spent one night. Room and bed are OK. Location is good. Can walk to beach (just under a mile). We took the train to Santa Barbara, had a meal and wandered around State Street. Then took it back. That was the highlight for the kids! Overall clean, nice courtyard. Pool is busy and fun, although small. Good... More

The beautiful facility and the location of the Inn offer a viable less expensive choice for visitors to Santa Barbara and Goleta. For those on a more relaxed schedule, Santa Barbara is 25 minutes away by car unless one encounters heavier than usual traffic. As frequent travelers to SB, we decided to try it on this trip. Our room is... More

Good that most of rooms have balcony, otherwise you fell like you are stuffed in the room. good for business trip, single person in the room. Two is a crowded in the room. Circa 10 by 10 ft pool, good for... More

I would definitely recommend this cute hotel. Rooms are clean and comfortable. Beautiful courtyard and nice restaurant for breakfast. The town is close to Santa Barbara but not as pricey. We walked around downtown and to the beach in the afternoon and drove to Santa Barbara for dinner.

Quick overnight trip to take Grandaughter #2 on a tour of UCSB. Great overnight stay and approx $50 less expensive than properties in Santa Barbara or Goleta. Arrived late, tired and check in literally took under 2 minutes. Room was clean, on the high floor that I requested, with an outdoor patio. Beds were comfy and woke up to coffee... More

Stayed here a few times. Its a traditional Mission style looking southern CA hotel. Some updates have been done. Guest room bathroom was ok but getting dated. The bathroom had 3" tile counters with grout. The staff were very pleasant at check-in and checkout .
