“Definitely will be back.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 8, 2012

Small hotel, good location with extremely friendly and helpful staff. The room was very clean and spacious with comfortable bed and large flat screen TV. Large variety in their continental breakfast, fun wine and cheese happy hour and delicious cookies and milk to finish the evening. Rooms all face the parking area, however this a small drawback in light of the many positives! Thank you Curt, Stacy and William for helping to make it such a wonderful stay.

This is a charming little inn within walking distance to the beach. Our room was clean, quiet, relatively large and nicely decorated. They serve a complimentary continental breakfast each morning, wine and cheese in the late afternoon and milk and cookies in the evening. The staff was extremely friendly and informative offering suggestions for sightseeing and dining which were right on the mark. All-in-all, we had a very comfortable and pleasant stay.

We stayed here for our anniversary and it was perfect. We got a king room and it was very comfortable and very, very clean. The bed was big and cozy and the pillows were soft down. I was in heaven. The staff was very hospitable, helpful and friendly.
They offer free movie rentals from a huge catalogue of movies, free wifi in the rooms and a continental breakfast in the morning.
They also offer wine and cheese in the late afternoon/evening followed by homemade cookies with milk in the later evening.
There is even a visiting "hotel" cat. He's a big fluffy, blue-eyed guy with a magnificent tail and he's quite friendly. We are huge cat lovers and he provided a great "cat fix" for us. We had (of course) to leave our 2 kitties at home.

I stayed 2 nights at this hotel on a biz trip. The hotel has been converted from apartments. The kitchen and bathroom needs updating badly while the bedroom was tastefully updated. I wouldn't make a special trip to Santa Barbara to stay at this hotel, but the price was right. About a 10 minute walk to the beach.

This is an excellently maintained, mission-style hotel complete with fountain, vine-covered breakfast porch and tiled stairways. The front lobby features a fireplace and comfortable seating where guests often gathered to visit. Generous continental breakfast, wine & cheese late afternoon, cookies and milk in the evening, and dozens of movie DVDs for free use in your room. The front desk staff is extremely welcoming, helpful and knowledgable about area activities, dining, etc. The hotel is a short walk to lively State St for dining and shopping, and only a couple blocks from the beach and pier. Would definitely stay there again.

Room Tip: Ask for a room on the courtyard, away from the street.

Stayed here with a few girlfriends. Short walk to the harbor, Sterns wharf, etc. The service was really great. Very helpful folks at the desk recommended a great lunch spot and pub. Enjoyed the free bike loan, free happy hour, and good breakfast buffet included. This is a remodeled 60's or 70's motel. Nice, comfy beds. Old bathrooms - hope you find painted plywood cupboards charming. Our room was in need of some TLC - patched walls still in need of paint and an annoyingly rattly window. Overall a good, clean, basic stay.

Room Tip: Stay upstairs on the coastal side. Room 24 has the rattling window.
