no air conditioning in rooms.

Posted Jul 24, 2017
For the price we paid we expected air conditioning. Even though the Inn was 1 block from ocean, there was not breeze because the layout of the property. Our room was tucked in a corner and little breeze flowed.

Needed a place to stay a couple it was perfect. My room had a small view of the ocean in the front and the mountains in the back. Great cross breeze.. Nice mile walk to restaurants and the beach was a block away so was gherkin Zoo... I'd stay again.

Very pleasant

Posted Jul 14, 2017
Pros: Location, condition
Cons: Not much. The building is what it is.
Location: Very close to the beach; near Santa Barbara commercial area
It's a very old building with many old fixtures, but it's in excellent condition, and is well furnished and maintained.

Disappointing and expensive experience

Posted Jul 4, 2017
The first room that I was shown was dark and right next to the communal pool. I asked for one with mor light and the staff was accommodating. The next room was barely lighter (all rooms are dark) and noisy. You can hear the conversations of the guests next door, the children are in the pool and you can hear everything (their pool ballls bounced against my door) and the early shower from the neighboring room woke me up. For the price ($350+) it was a terrible valuable.

Great family vacation

Posted Jul 3, 2017
We had a great stay for a week vacation with two kids. The pool was great. The hotel is located right close to east beach and a short drive to state street and montecito. The staff is super friendly and helpful. Simple breakfast is offered to start the day. The room was spacious enough and clean.

Pros: Across the street from the beach and the East Beach Grill located right on the beach.
Cons: The Inn was managed for decades by Frank and Linda Santana. They were the Inn's soul. There is not one photo acknowledging their service. Disgraceful.
Location: Zoo Beach
Close to the Beach and Zoo. Walking the Embarcadero.

Close to beach but a horrible experience..

Posted Jun 6, 2017
This motel will charge you a lot for things unadvertised.. Good luck with them, I would not recommend to anyone.

Dear Guest, I am so sorry to hear this. I have taken this time to research all transactions between the time of your review and months prior. The only charges we have made aside from room and tax were for parking, the snack bar and lost keys. Please feel free to contact me so that we may work together on this. Kind Regards, Christina
