Excellent stay at a beautiful hotel. Everyone is super friendly, the property rooms are immaculate and the location cant be beat. Also, the breakfast is delicious! Some of the best baked goods I've had!

Very clean hotel/motel that is about three blocks from the beach. Comfortable beds and clean rooms. Small pool but very clean and warm water. Ample parking on site. Friendly staff. A little pricy for what it is but overall a nice place to stay.

We enjoyed our stay very much. Room was newly remodeled and very nice. Greg and his wife are exceptional hosts. The morning continental breakfast muffins, biscuits, and pastries were all home made and very good. There were also cheese and meats available.

Needed to book an extra night in Santa Barbara after our flight home was cancelled waiting at the airport. I checked TripAdvisor from the terminal at 5:00pm. Everything available was either awful or crazy expensive. I noticed the 5 star rating on this refurbished little motel and took a chance. The owners did a great job gutting and modernizing these...

Wonderful hosts, room and awesome breakfast. We were only there one night, but treated like family. We were treated upon arrival and shown to our room. Updated accommodations and excellent location. We will be back.

Great location near the coast as well as other in-town locations. Room was exceptionally clean and rather spacious (queen room). No noise from other tenants or the outside. I will make reservations here on future visits!

They gave us good tips on where to eat and even tips on the rest of our journey (we were traveling the Pacific Coast to San Francisco). The breakfast was amazing - kudos to Jennifer. I... More

This property is just fantastic! Although I have to admit when I pulled up it looked like an older motel, very clean but nothing special.
