Average hotel but great location I'd say this is a slightly overpriced hotel even for Santa Barbara. The room was small but nice enough. Beware of a couple of other charges this hotel adds on check out eg resort fee and occupancy tax.

Close to the wharf, harbor, dining, The Funk Zone.I thought I had read that all the rooms had a mini fridge and microwave so I was disappointed that our initial room did not have these. We were able to switch rooms but had to pay additional fee. Staff was pleasant and helpful. Room was comfortable.
