Centrally located (but there is a city shuttle bus) Clean, great staff, and won't kill you with stupid out of controlled high rates. We have been customers here for 10+ YEARS!!!!! A free light breakfast is included with your stay. The Beach is across the street!

Shame on the owners of this hotel. It sits on some of the most pristine property in the U.S. and is a complete dump. We were "upgraded" to a room by the pool with a view of the ocean. Around 5 pm on Sat, 3 beer-drinking guys plopped down in front of our room with a boom box playing a...

We have never seen so much dust and dirt in a hotel room, every corner of the structure was really dirty. The pool was very cold, the food offered for breakfast was old and split in parts. We paid a lot of money to stay in a awful place, NEVER AGAIN!

We stayed here for 3 nights and had a good room very clean and comfortable bed. There is no coffee makers in the rooms which is a minus but there was a fridge. We had an Ocean view which was nice.

can't beat the location, or the value for the money. Friendly staff. Lots of variety at the continental breakfast. Clean and comfortable rooms. I will definitely return next time I'm in Santa Barbara.

The hotel is privately owned and managed by a family. The front desk generally had a desire to help and answer questions completely. They charge less than the chain hotels near by yet deliver a nice room. I had some very loud college women next to me; the front desk quite tactfully solved the problem minutes after I called. The...

This hotel is on the beach front about 3 miles south of the wharf. Hotel is clean and comfortable with free parking, wifi, and breakfast. The price increases on the weekend like all hotels in this location.
