We stayed here for one night, loved the outside (that's what gives the inn a 4 rather than a 3). It was a great location, yes a bit of a walk to the beach, but the weather is so nice is Santa Barbara who doesn't love a good walk!
Parking was easy and breakfast very tasty. However, this seems to be more a small hotel rather than b&b, there were many many guests staying.
The issue was the room decor. The rooms are terribly outdated and conjure up memories of a slightly creepy grandmother's house. The bed was comfortable and the room clean, but the pink bathroom tiles and old furniture need updating. If this inn revamped the rooms, it would be great. Overall a pleasant stay, but for the price, might look elsewhere next time we are in Santa Barbara.
