We stayed at this small hotel for 2 nights during July.
The location is excellent for the major highway and access to the waterfront. With a short walk many good restuarants were accessible. The ample undercover parking was a real bonus in a residential area. The accommodation was roomy albeit a little dated in style and upkeep but the added extras of free bottled water and nice toiletries were appreciated.
The service at reception was attentive and very efficient - the hotel's restaurant recommendations book and in-room information booklet very well presented.
The extra touches extended to a lovely continental style breakfast each day which we enjoyed outside watching the birdlife. The cheese and wine and the freshly baked cookies and milk were a welcome start to the evening.
The swimming pool is somewhat small but as we used it fairly late in the evening we had it to ourselves. The gardens are well tended and attract hummingbirds and acorn woodpeckers.
Noise was never an issue during our stay and the view from our top floor room very pretty.
If we were ever lucky enough to re-visit Santa Barbara we would go back to this hotel.
