the hotel is clean and neat, the drooms or spacious this is the second time we've stayed here and this time the room we stayed in had a patio, what a nice change from just your ordinary hotel room.

This was a fantastic hotel for the price. The checkin was great and the rooms are spacious and clean, the breakfast was great. The coffee... More

This hotel exceeded our expectations. The room was very nice, clean and had everything you need in a hotel room. We only stayed one night on our way to Santa Barbara but could easily have stayed another night. The owner was so sweet to us and they actually had a good breakfast (compared to other American hotels).

Sarah and her partners make every effort to make this a nice place to stay including hard surface floors, granite counters, strong wifi, good breakfast, secure door locks. While the location is next to a highway and can be a little noisy,... More

The People in the lobby were helpful and courteous. The room was very spacious this might be because we were late and got the handicap (not by request!). It was clean. In the morning we went to the "breakfast" closet. there were 15-20 people from all over very crowded in small room. Some of the overflow went into the lobby... More
