    Great little motel on the harbour front just a short walk from the pier and the centre. Was a very clean room with a class shower! Breakfast was ok, but then what do you expect for a motel? Would thoroughly recommend this place.

    good Morning. I'm going to a road trip through California to celebrate my anniversary and I want to ask for a little help to give me any tips of Santa Barbara. Mandatory programs to visit I've just googled, read on sites like Frommers and blogs on the internet. My purpose here are get those valuable tips, like "avoid to reach at this place in that particular time...", "do not do this way because the road is worse...", "don´t visit this restaurant, it´s overpriced and the food is so so..." and so on. Thanks in advance for what can help. Best Regards, Jairo - S. Paulo/Brazil
