“Nice decor!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 1 June 2012

Like the new decor! Great price for Santa Barbara lodging. No a/c, but the fan was sufficient for May. Walking distance to the beach. There is a shuttle to take to the wharf or State street. I would ask for upstairs bedrooms. We had neighbors who came home at 2 am and stomped like elephants. Breakfast was good (more than 10 teas bags choices, variety of yummy pastries). Frank is charming and welcoming to all guests.

We booked this hotel after reading all the good reviews on trip advisor and we were not disappointed!! Frank and Linda were so helpful and welcoming and genuinely seemed interested in their guests. The rooms were lovely, clean and the bed very comfy, the best we stayed in on our trip. We were given some helpful information of where to go whilst staying in Santa Barbara, the location of this hotel is in a good location and not too far of a walk to the main strip. Breakfast was lovely and very good value for money. There was free wifi which worked fine in our rooms. There was plenty of parking for guests around the back of the hotel too. I would most definitely come back to stay here again!

As usual,Frank in his Hawaiian shirt, is part of the show here. Big continental breakfast choices. All around friendly service here. Given good directions to Santa Barbara Mission up on hill, and also to wonderful Chumash Indian Casino

when we got from L.A. to Santa Barbara, we had great expectations about Frank's place having read so many lovely descriptions and valuations in the internet before. - We have to admit that every positive remark was more than true! we loved to stay at this place so much that we had to take an extra night, although we ran out of time as we had to fly home soon. Frank is the most relaxing guy we have ever met, all rooms are newly (charming) renovated, we even had a fire place in our room. The hotel is a 2 minutes walk away from east beach - everything total relaxing.
A Must in Santa Barbara - like Frank says "only the best for my guest(s)".

Thanx Frank again, next time with the whole family;-)

Good location, parking available, security gates to the rooms. Swimming pool a reasonable size, patio area to sit and eat the complimentary breakfast provided by Frank, but if you are a couple Frank says in the morning the man should come to reception and fill a try with the breakfast goodies on offer and take back to the room for the lady of the party, I like Frank! Breakfast is really good, and Frank likes you to help yourself to whatever you like, and even take some more for you journey. I like Frank, he is a real character

Room Tip: rooms overlooking the pool are nicer than the ones overlooking the car park, and Frank is very quite...
