The hotel is fine. The location is not. The parking lot is small and 1 day we came late from the beach we had no parking available. Also, every night it was loud parties on the parking lot

Quaint little inn with the aesthetic and setting that is exactly what Santa Barbara should be. Excellent location just off the west end of Cabrillo Blvd. and within walking distance to the Harbor, Stearns Wharf, State Street, etc. Rooms have an old world charm and are in a quiet location. You can't hear the ocean, nor see it. But even those hotels on Cabrillo with the view of the ocean really hear nothing but the traffic on Cabrillo anyway. Just a great romantic little Inn. Very highly recommended!!
