This is a small, quaint, clean and FRIENDLY getaway if you are staying in Santa Barbara. The staff there could not be any more helpful and friendly; location is fantastic within walking distance to the beach and fun places to eat on the water. Parking on site at no additional charge. Room was updated with charm. So glad we picked... More

This was a cute little motel that has been upgraded and remodeled. It ended up having the best decor of any place we stayed in California (we stayed in 5 locations over 1.5 weeks). The bathroom was lovely and the water pressure in the shower was amazing. It was also a very short walk to the beach and wharf area.... More

We stayed one night here and really liked the location since it was only a block from the beach. The downside is that the walls are paper thin and our neighbors were awake and talking from 3:30am until 8am so we did not get a lot of sleep. The room itself was nice, clean and comfortable. There was a nice... More

Great location- short walk to beach, shops, pier. Easy flexible check in and parking. Great value for money including a light breakfast. Beds were very comfortable and there was no street noise. Very pleased with this inn for our one night stay.

We weren't sure what to expect and were pleasantly surprised by this little gem. The room was comfortable, updated and made us feel like we were in Santa Barbara with its tasteful decor. We easily walked to the beach and pier -- wanted to hit Sambos (a couple of blocks away) but didn't want to wait. There is a 7-11... More

This was our favorite hotel while on a road trip through California. The property itself is older, but it has been updated and well maintained. The room was very large, and the beds were so comfortable that I asked the owner what kind of mattresses they used. Wifi worked great, and the included breakfast was simple but very sufficient. It...

We stayed here for 2 nights on the way to LA. When we arrived, we were given a really friendly welcome from the gentleman behind the desk, and he gave us maps, ideas for places to visit, bus information, restaurant tips, etc. - nothing was too much trouble.
