We only rented a room for one night - but the location was so perfect that the stay was most enjoyable. We rented a room with two queen beds. We loved the microwave, Mini Fridge and the coffee pot. The café table came in handy for morning coffee and answering emails. We also enjoyed the complimentary breakfast. If our family...

Daniel at the front desk was great - polite & professional. Only negative no fridge in room. Other than that everything was terrific. Good location between the Harbor & Stearns Wharf. Only 1 block from the beach.

This motel has great parking and within walking distance of the beach. The rooms are a great size and have everything you will need for your stay. We found the staff really friendly and helpful. They dont have a launderette but gave us directions to a place nearby which we really appreciated. The breakfast in the morning was a buffet...

We only stayed one night, but Daniel at the desk had been helpful in advance when I called to ask questions, and was there when we checked in and out. Bed was comfy, room was spacious and quiet and had wifi, and breakfast, though cold items only, was sufficient. Price was reasonable for this city; we would definitely stay here...

The location is a block away from the beach and an easy walk to the harbour and the beach/pier. Staff were very helpful and the breakfast was basic but just what was required. The room did not have aircon but not required as large and airy. Wifi was excellent also. We only stayed one night and the staff said we...

We stayed in room 106, so that's what this review is based on. The location is good. You're walking distance from the beach and we didn't hear any noise from the street. That said, we heard every single toilet flush or shower noise from adjacent rooms. Also, you could hear folks in the hall; guess there was a party happening...

Nestled into downtown Santa Barbara only a block from the beach. Rustic, quaint, and simple. Rooms are very basic, but the beds are surprisingly comfortable. Wifi was the fastest ive ever seen in a hotel. Shower was superb. Breakfast, well, very basic, more of a snack to me. Coffee is good, but as for food, cereal, and some muffins. No...

From check-in to check-out, the experience was very pleasant. When you walk in the lobby, there are freshly baked cookies. From there, it's a nice visit. It's very close to downtown and Funk Zone - wineries and shops. The room was comfortable and clean. Two queen sized beds, a good-sized bathroom. I like the option of a sink outside -...
