This motel was a perfect place to stay in gorgeous Santa Barbara. The service was warm, the pool sparkling, the location was superb and the room was beautiful and breezy with an ocean view. We are a family of four and stayed in the the 2 room suite on the second floor for 4 nights. It has a great layed- back family atmosphere that is welcoming to the family dog too. We enjoyed grabbing our to-go salads and goodies we got from Trader Joes (a couple miles away), beach chairs and sand toys and walked just half a block to one of the most beautiful beaches in California. The kitchen in the room is well stocked and quaint but not large enough for having the family "eat in"--but why "eat in" when you have the park and beach so close. My husband and son also threw a few balls in the "field of dreams" across the street. The front office has 100's of dvds to choose from. The staff was incredibly friendly. I have stayed in more "posh" hotels but I have rarely felt this comfortable away from home.
