My son and I stayed one night on our way to LA. I really like the location because it is close to the waterfront. It is an old motel that has been nicely updated. There is a hot tub but no pool. Checkin was fine, and parking was available in the parking lot. The room was clean and had a...

HOTEL’S FAVOURITE REVIEW
Reviewed 28 January 2017 via mobile

PRe booked this motel before arriving. I was very sketched out at first because it's an older looking days inn and it was later at night so things just look different then. The bed was too soft for my liking. No shower fam so you have to keep a window open. If you aren't picky and just need a place...

This is an old motel done as nice as the average Days Inn. The room was clean and well maintained. There was a refrigerator and a hair dryer, ice bucket and some cups. The room (111 I think, it's in a corner) was a curious configuration - it had the main room and a separate bedroom. Both beds were pretty...

I had a great surprise when I saw the room. It had 2 rooms :) We booked a room with two beds for 4 people and this one had a separated room. It was great because we could be very comfortable. The only problem was clarity and warmness. Overall I really enjoyed staying at this Inn.

Hotel is within walking distance to the harbor (block & a half), train station and downtown Santa Barbara. Room was clean but dated. Staff was friendly and very cooperative. Adequate parking available at this single level. Stayed on points. I will stay again as it is away from the main street noise. Use as a base not a resort. Reasonably...

A perfectly adequate motel for a one night stay in Santa Barbara if like us you're on a US west coast road trip. Close enough to State St that you can leave the car & walk. Eat in the working harbour - Brophy's is great but always busy.

Lovely staff and a really comfortable and clean room. This is a great location for a few days stay in Santa Barbara- you can walk to the main spots from here, but it's nice and quiet at night. The breakfast was very basic, all packaged muffins and danish parties, so don't expect anything fresh, but it's a nice touch and...

While not the nicest hotel in the area and no view, this motel is a short walk to the wharf and pier. We chose it based on price. There are no special amenities but the room is clean and served it's purpose.
