Great view room
We had a balcony room across from the pool/beach and really enjoyed sitting there in the afternoon viewing the ocean. The room was clean and the staff were great. We had breakfast and afternoon free wine/cheese around the pool. We like to walk and this place is within easy walking distance of everything at the water front and to State St. The one drawback would be the AC was noisy at night but a small complaint. We would stay here again.

Convenient, clean, considerate
My wife and I stayed here for a few nights for a nice getaway, and we were not disappointed. We were efficiently checked into our clean room.
We spent time at the pool each day and evening; it was always clean, usually quiet, and the nighttime lighting was really nice. We were just a quick few minutes drive to Trader Joe’s, the downtown area, Mission Santa Barbara, and restaurants galore. We enjoyed the proximity to the harbor, as we walked along the sand and also kayaked with the Santa Barbara Adventure Company. We drove to the wharf, but it was also within walking distance.
The families we met at the pool and the employees of the hotel were all very nice. Even the few children we saw were well-mannered and quiet.
Finally, we enjoyed the free breakfast each morning, wine and cheese each afternoon, and a handful of kumquats off the tree when we checked out!

Upscale motel experience
My husband and I were pleasantly surprised how nice this hotel was. For three star, they go above and beyond your average hotel. Free happy hour each day from 5-7 pm in the lobby with cheese/crackers and wine; free breakfast each day (not a typical hot breakfast but adequate to get a bit before going out and about); chocolate “turn down service”; nice location in proximity to the beach but about a mile + to a lot of the shops/restaurants on State Street. Room was recently renovated and my only complaint would be the bathroom shower area/tile…not awful but not great either. The garden rooms have a lot quieter experience. The pool/spa was also just steps from any room and very well maintained. I would recommend this place to anyone who is looking for a good value.
What a great view
Cute little inn across from the beach. The rooms were clean and a little small. Free parking with a very minimal breakfast. Close to great resturants and they did offer wine and cheese tasting. Also great fishing just across the street!
Nice garden setting!
I moved over to this location from another place I stayed for two days while in Santa Barbara. I like the fact that it is across the street from the ocean…with lots of beach activities…and restaurants close by. This place is kept up nicely for the price…clean, and loved all the lush gardens in and around the pool. Had a single, room was a little small, but does have a more modern, clean look compared to other places I looked at. Anyway…would stay there again.
