The Inn is easy to get to from the Highway and walking distance from the beach and pier.
The place is small but very well looked after. It has a family feel to it. The reception desk is tiny and there is no real space for dinning at the inn but the hotel does offer a reasonable free breakfast buffet. There are also complimentary wine and cheese in the afternoon and cookies & milk in the evening!
The place might be further to the centre of Santa Barbara than other inns but it has a great service. We also got a coupon for a free appetizer at one of the restaurants on the sea front.
Our room was like a self contained apartment with its own kitchen. The room (like most of Santa Barbara) was very quaint and felt like staying at Jessica Fletcher’s house. So if you want a modern place to stay, this is not it.
We had a really nice stay but next time I would tried one of the other inns closer to the pier.
