Great location for beach, downtown and UCSB
Posted Feb 23, 2017
The hotel is vintage on the outside, in a cool way--very 1960s. But it was clearly restored and all the rooms have been completely modernized to the standard of a chic boutique hotel. Light colored laminate wood flooring, walk-in closet, renovated bathroom, comfortable bed, decor straight out of a magazine, etc. The breakfast was included in the very reasonable price. It was an excellent spread of gourmet deli meats, a delicious baked egg casserole, biscuits, muffins, and plenty of coffee. The hotel is an easy walk to the beach, which was beautiful. Some restaurants were within walking distance. Downtown SB was minutes away by car, and UCSB campus was an easy 15 minute drive. I highly recommend this place for short stays in the area. My flight arrived at LAX in the late evening, so I arrived after hours at the hotel--but the owners made accommodations for my late arrival by leaving keys in a lock box. All pre-arrival communication was by text, which made things super easy.
