We went there for a weekend getaway, the main purpose was to relax without having to leave the property. We stayed in a one-bedroom suite on the first floor, right next to the pool. The suite had a mini-fridge and a microwave was provided on request. The stay includes complimentary cooked-to-order breakfast, which was not only satisfying but really delicious.... More

We stayed here for the first time last week and will now make this our go-to hotel for trips to Santa Barbara! The property is beautiful and the historic house/museum was such an unexpected surprise. We paid a little extra for a deluxe king suite overlooking the pool and it was well worth it! This was the most comfortable hotel... More

This is a small and very comfortable inn, with historical significance. Grounds are lovely with many interesting specimen trees. The suites are spacious and nicely furnished. Excellent location for SB airport, UCSB and SB. Breakfasts are made to order in a very timely fashion, and can be eaten indoors or on the adjacent patio near the pool. Staff was very... More

The location was really great for visiting both UCSB and going downtown. About 5 minutes either way. Quiet peaceful location. Accommodations were not the most spacious but certainly comfortable. Enjoyed the pool and hot tub. Highlight was the delicious breakfast which was cooked to order. I'd definitely return here.

What a little gem of a hotel. I spent two nights while visiting my daughter. The two story building with plantation shutters and beautiful landscaping reminded me of the best of Charleston or a peaceful, low key resort in Florida or Caribbean. Sitting by the pool listening to the birds and watching hummingbirds stop by was a highlight. Quiet, clean... More
