We loved this motel! Before our trip, we had read reviews and thought we'd check it out on our trip to California. When we arrived in Santa Barbara we went straight to the hotel to see if they had space, and we got the last room for only 99.00 for the night! And what a pleasant surprise it was! We were in room 20, which is designated as a handicapped equipped room and so it was HUGE! There were 2 queen beds in the room on 2 sides of the room, separated by a couch and sitting area so would be private enough for a family or even 2 couples. The bathroom was huge as well, so much space and was nice and clean. It also had a full kitchen and private patio off the back of the kitchen. Parking is right in front of the room so you we felt really safe and secure about having that there. The beds were so comfortable and we wish we would have stayed at the hotel longer than the one night!
They have free bicycles which we took out for a ride. The motel is only 1/2 block from the beach and bicycling around is a breeze as it is very flat.
Breakfast was wonderful, large continental breakfast and plenty of food. Staff were courteous and helpful.
We can't wait to return, what a great little gem!
