Walking distance to beach - great staff

Posted Jul 13, 2015
My boyfriend and I decided to book a room here last minute for 4th of July weekend. The hotel is a few (very walkable) blocks to the beach. The room are tidy and well-equipped but nothing special. We were upgraded upon check in, which was great. The pool is not worth using (really small) but honestly you should be at the beach in Santa Barbara! The best part of the hotel was the staff. They are all super pleasant, willing to help, and knowledgable. We left very happy!

Nice place for a short visit.

Posted Jul 4, 2015
Pros: It was a nice quite place to stay with good parking. The spa & pool were very nice. The staff was great.
Cons: Not a lot of places for lunch or dinner near by.
Location: Not bad but not great. It was a nice place to stay over on a long trip. Not a destination hotel.
The staff was outstanding. The room was great and included free DVDs. The bathroom was tight but clean. It was a great place to rest before our trip to Arizona.

Dirty floors

I notified the front staff that our bathroom/ shower Flores were "sticky" I was assured that it would be taken care of. They must of been to busy😫😫😫. The facility was old, but very charming, front staff very accommodating. Over all a nice hotel for a few nights.

Great location, super helpful staff.

Posted Jun 22, 2015
Pros: nice location - two blocks from the beach. Free bike rentals made cars unnecessary. The staff was very helpful and personable. Comfortable beds.
Cons: This is an older property but felt rustic rather than dated.
Location: everything accessible by bike - beach, restaurants, zoo
Great choice for exploring SB. some great personal touches

A little disappointed with the cosmetics only.

Posted Jun 20, 2015
Pros: They offer all the extras while staying there...staff is wonderful.
Cons: Mostly, cosmetics to the building.
Location: Location about two blocks to the beach...boat tours, water equipment and restaurants once you get to the beach.
After looking at the lovely pics that are posted for this Inn...I was a little surprised when I got there! This place really needs some paint on the exterior...like handrails, doors, and should change the carpet! The rooms are in better shape than the outside. I had two beds in my room, and a fairly good size. Met with Iris when I got there...she's great, gave me info and maps, very welcoming, and let me know that if I needed anything to please let her know. I must say though that what they lack in paint and cosmetics...they make up with amenities, like, offering wine and cheese, cookies and milk at various times of the day, give you bikes to ride for free while you're staying there...and you can easily walk to the beach from here.
