It is a very unique "Boutique" hotel in an area with similar offerings. The desk guys were very helpful and accommodating. I would stay here again.

Cozy property in a great location to walk Santa Barbara. Parking convenient and rooms nice. A small refrigerator and microwave would be a nice addition.

Walking distance to the beach was the positive. However, the beds were hard and uncomfortable, windows were old and moisture leaked in through them, a/c is old and didn’t work. They need to update the rooms. Overpriced in my opinion.

The Inn offers everything we seek about Santa Barbara, proximity to the shore, dining and music options (very walkable to State Street eateries and small music venues, close to the SBCC campus), comfortable and reasonably priced for the area.

Really lame breakfast of apples and packaged granola bars. Could’ve at least been a pastry basket and cereals available. But location location location and rooms very clean and staff very friendly.
