Birthday get-away

Went for a birthday celebration and this place is great. It’s within walking distance of the Harbor, Stearns Wharf and several restaurants. We had an ocean / harbor view and enjoyed it from the balcony. They offer a wine and cheese in the early evening which was quite yummy. We enjoyed the pool and the hot tub. Perfect weather for this time of year. I would imagine the summer would be more crowded because of the area but all-in-all, it’s worth it. Lots of stuff to do within walking distance. Can be a bit pricey because of the area but worth it. Will definitely be back!

fabulous vibe!

This is a great location, right near State Street for food and shopping, the harbor is across the street and the wharf just a couple blocks up the beach. We had a room with harborview and it was fantastic. plush bedding, great service, very private balcony with chairs and table. There are several markets within walking distance and a small refrigerator in room. Free wine and cheese for two hours in the late afternoon and continental breakfast included. We paid over $300 for one night, but for us, if we’re going to bother to travel and want to enjoy our room awhile, it’s the only way to go. rooms are available that aren’t on the beach for less. Biking, walking, skateboarding, paddle boards, kayaks – all nearby and with trails along the harbor. Sambo’s practically next door. The only negative is the traffic noise while trying to sleep. We live in the country, so it was a bother, but for those who can deal, the room is worth it. Heck, it’s worth it anyway. Also beautiful pool and jacuzzi all lit up in iridescent blue/purple at night.

Great getaway

We live in Orange County and just wanted to get away for a few days to relax by the ocean. This place has several nice qualities that gives you the feeling you are in a quaint upscale area with many nice amenities. The rooms are not huge but large enough for two people to feel comfortable and taken care of. We were on the third floor harbor front with a nice view with the boats and ocean just across the street from our balcony. The air conditioner is noisy which I imagine in most places it is but if you sleep with the door open (no screen) you have to be prepared to hear a lot of noise. Even though the traffic slows down later in the night if you happen to be there when there are tourists around you will hear it. The fog horn and the train are evident but nothing that will deter you from staying there. The bed is very comfortable and the bathroom was clean with everything you need, a great coffeemaker and fridge with a flat screen TV and you are set for the evening when you come in. Love the little sofa off in the corner and the warm white robes for the pool. The wine and cheese every night was great, very good wine by the way and caught up on the baseball game when we were down there. There is an elevator which is great since I was recovering from a broken leg and could not take the steps and the ladies who cleaned the room were wonderful and friendly. Perfect parking, great rate obtained online but most of all the friendly people at the front desk, Dominic, Zoey and Patricia were most helpful and willing to do whatever to make our stay comfortable. If you do not mind being close to the street this is an excellent choice that is close to the water, walking distance to everything and has a great view.


Great place, ideal location!

I stayed here with my husband for my birthday.
Great, quiet location facing the harbour. It’s only a five minute walk to state street. Ideal!
The room was comfortable and stylish, the continental breakfast was more than adequate for me. Especially liked that they had boiled eggs and fresh fruit, and not just cereal and pastries.
Really enjoyed the complimentary wine and cheese every evening, which we enjoyed by the beautiful pool with soft jazz playing in the background.
The whole place has a sophisticated, grown up feel which I loved.
And to top it all off, one of my all time favourite restaurants, Toma, is right next door.
We can’t wait to return to this lovely inn.

Recommend for both private and business stay

Clean, big rooms, quite and comfortable. The only negative part is the lack of cooling or then it was broken. It is in the right spot of Santa Batbara, at the beach but only 5 minutes walk from the nightlife and restaurants. Would call the place safe. Ok breakfast at the pool area. Not the cheapest but also nothing to get frustrated about. Recommend it.
