    Very good

    Located close to the beach and tennis courts,restaurants and fair price.

    The building appearance is not attractive. The blue paint of the walls gives the impression that rooms are smaller.So does the blue-brown combination of the curtain and bed cover.Carpet in bath room, not recommended. Breakfast is very unpleasant experience; no diversity and poor quality.

    -The staff was very unwelcoming and rude, especially the lady that checked us in. -The room was unkept and dirty -One of our pillow cases had a fresh blood stain and we had to request a new one. -This is a one star motel at best and I would not recommend it to anyone!

    Fabulous

    This place does exactly what it says on the tin. It is good value, ideally placed for beach or town. Its small staff worked very hard and were very helpful to us. We enjoyed our stay (first time in Santa Barbara) immensely and the inn was very much part of it, offering good service and advice and for us a degree of independence to visit the surrounding region. All in all a great time was had by both of us. We would come again. Thanks to Samantha and the team for making our stay memorable!

    Superb

    Modern decor, very clean motel style inn. Well placed for beach, pier and shops. Good buffet breakfast included.

    Although the rooms and lobby were well decorated the corridors and service areas appeared dated. WiFi reception in the room although free was quite poor.

    Good

    It was clean, 3 stars is a stretch.

    Bed was not that comfortable. Bathroom door looked like it was kicked in, but repaired poorly. Everything in the room look out dated. Breakfast needs a lot of work.

    They had a great hot tub, which we used both nights! It was clean and in a great location; the harbor, State Street, and other restaurants were right around the corner!

    Superb

    The staff at the Hotel was very friendly ans allowed us to book in to our room earlier as our room had been cleaned before it was expected. The continental breakfast had a good choice and better than some I had been in. There was free internet acces at the Hotel which was abonus as some Hotels charge for that service. The swimming ppol & hot tub was also good to use at the end of the day.

    Good place close to sand beach, where you can arrive by walk

    Breakfast is too simple, some food out before close time, anyway making muffin is good experience by oneself.

    Good

    Front desk person very friendly. Rooms seemed clean, but small, and muggy due to only a wall air conditioner on damp day. I would recommend it to those on a budget with minimal requirements.

    Superb

    The location to the coast was great and so was the price compare to the other hotels around.

    I had to check out early in the morning, no staff was around. It was also not obvious how to check out that early. The lobby was also closed, left my room keys on a shelf out side the locked lobby.
