Perfect choice. We'd never stayed there before but were warmly greeted, given an upgraded room and offered snacks and a nice chilled glass of wine - most appreciated after our 7 hour trip! The room was lovely and had a private balcony but even those that didn't include that amenity had nicely furnished, roomy deck areas most with views of...

Just got back from a stay here, it was wonderful. Nice clean rooms, with good facilities and lots to do. Lovely beach and harbour just across the road and nice restaurants nearby. My only wish would be for more breakfast options as it's only toast and cereal options. However cheese, crackers, wine and lemonade in the evening was wonderful as...

Hello and thank you for your lovely review of our Inn. I hope you also saw our hard boiled eggs and Greek Yogurt for some protein options at our breakfast bar, too! We hope to welcome you back to Santa Barbara, soon!

Service was excellent! Breakfast fine and room with a view great! Clean and great location! Good value for your buck! Within walking distance of restaurants. Restaurants pretty average in the area ! Beach directly opposite. Great family hotel!

Simple, modest place with a view of the marina and water, if your room is on the second or third floor and facing that way. On-site parking is convenient. Nice relaxing pool area. Hope that whoever is in the room below you doesn't smoke on their patio or balcony as the smoke will waft right up to you. Wine at...

Perfect location, across from West Beach and close to Santa Barbara's attractions. Clean spacious rooms with good facilities, and garden patio. Lovely deep pool and huge steamy Jacuzzi. Wine and cheese each evening is perfect way to prepare for the glorious sunsets !

Great deal for Santa Barbara. Walking distance to downtown and especially the pier. Nice little breakfast and love the wine and cheese action. Great touch to a cozy cute little hotel. Again with many of these type hotels do not expect large rooms. However our friends were upgraded and had a really nice little suite with a view of the...

Staff are very friendly and helpful. The hotel is in a fantastic location right on the harbor but within walking distance of State St and major shopping. The rooms are spacious. Be sure to pay extra for a harbor facing room with a huge balcony. The only negative is the size of the breakfast area. It is very small and...

This was the second time we visit Santa Barbara. It's a tourist town with a lot wealthy people live here - so hotels are expensive. It's conveniently located - a very pleasant short walk to Santa Barbara Pier. Hotel room were bit small but clean, our room was on second floor and outside the front door there were a row...

Excellent location and free parking right across from the beach. The rooms are small but very nicely furnished. They feature a free wine & cheese happy hour. Price is affordable compared to most of the other hotels in the area
