Perfect Stay and Location

First, booking this hotel was a breeze because of Teresa. She had several room recommendations for 5 adults. We ended up choosing the biggest suite they had, which was a 3 bedroom, 2 bath home. It had a great living room/kitchen/dining area/and bonus was the laundry room. Bonus times2 was it had 2 balconies! Our favorite was the balcony facing the bay. They served breakfast every morning, and happy hour every evening. Pool area was amazing. I noticed the property had a ton of outdoor seating for guests, and everything was cleaned regularly. There are also several restaurants that are close by; Toma for Italian, and Brophy Brothers for seafood. I would definitely stay here again…and if you are traveling with a larger group, try and book the big suite.

Loved Everything ❤️

Staff was very attentive. The location is excellent. Really liked the breakfast, coffee all day long. And wine and cheese in the evening. Short walk to the harbor. Short walk to State Street. Free bike rentals is a plus.

Love the Santa Barbara Life!

The staff, the pool, the hot tub, the breakfast, the location.... all perfect for a SB getaway. We brought our bikes but the Inn offers 2 hour free bike rental too! Go to the Riviera Bar and Shoreline for some local flavor and delicious drinks and food.
