This hotel is OK for a night or two just to sleep, as long as you don't spend too much time in it. The cleaniless was decent, could be better. The noise level is equivalent to me having the window open. I think depending on where you stay on the property the noise level can vary. For me, I was on the bottom level near the front and I can hear the housekeepers and gardeners outside. It was hard to sleep in. The pool is a nice addition, but I avoided it since it was a bit too crowded to adequatly social distance from people. Blow dryer and coffee maker are provided in the room. The place is a good distance to the beach and to downtown SB.

Even though they are a little bit old, the rooms are great, the staff is super friendly and the location is awesome. Best place to stay whenever in Santa Barbara. The pool is heated which makes it a perfect hangout after in a day in the city even in March.

This is the 7th year we have congregated in Santa Barbara for a high school mini reunion. We experienced helpful clerks and other helpful professional staff. The central location of the Inn made it easy to navigate around Santa Barbara

A superb motel, the rooms are spacious, well appointed, clean and comfortable. The staff were excellent, they really went out of their way time make you feel welcome, for example we were given maps and all points of interest within Santa Barbara were pointed out, we were given tickets for the shuttle and the hotel provides tea, coffee and cookies for guests 24/7 (although the cookies were gone when they were gone!) Staff were always friendly and attentive and this made a real difference. There is a small breakfast buffet each morning, this can get busy and there needs to be some additional seating, however it was very tasty and good considering the size of the breakfast area. There is a pool and spa on site, but we never got sound to using them. The motel is walking distance from State Street where the majority of bars, restaurants and shops are located,, it’s also a very short walk to the beach and pier, also a bonus. All in all a great motel.
