Talk about an amazing place! I was given an extremely warm welcome from the moment I arrived and by the time I left, this hotel felt like a second home. I stayed for nearly 2 weeks and truly didn't want to leave. The hotel is extremely clean, quiet, and a half a block from the beach! The owners are amazing...

Nicely renovated room, really delicious home-made breakfast, very courteous and helpful owners. Location is close to but not on the beach walk, near the zoo. On street parking is easy to find. Would definitely stay again.

We booked two rooms for two nights here and we left feeling belittled and bullied. This is not a family friendly, kid friendly hotel like they say they are. The owners were not friendly at all. When they realized there were children in our group, they took me into the office to lecture and bully me about showing up with...

It has been difficult to find a way to best respond to this situation. Ideally we would like everyone to have a good experience when staying with us. The facts are this: (1) the reservation made on Expedia was for 2 rooms with 2 beds listing 2 people in each room. We do not offer a free stay for children...

What a gem of a place - I've never been anywhere like it, and will definitely be back. The hotel was completely full every night I stayed, but I would never have suspected that if it wasn't for the 'NO VACANCY' sign. It's the perfect QUIET and relaxing getaway, if you want a peaceful trip... stay here! The hotel is...

All around excellent accommodations. The owners were extremely friendly . They were open to suggestions. The beach was just across the way. The breakfast was made by the owner and had various types of food to choose from. I would definitely recommend this place to friends. We would definitely return!

Very clean delightful small motel. The owners were very friendly and helpful, the room nicely decorated, breakfast was fresh and tasty, wifi and parking were free, and it was only a block from the beach. We found the bed too soft to be comfortable, but that it my only complaint, and the bed would probably be perfect for many people.

I came here with my sister from Maryland and she absolutely fell in love with this hotel and Santa Barbara. The hotel has comfortable beds, nice shower and a heated pool. The pool closed at dark due to the lights not working but the owner was very accommodating and offered to let us swim a few minutes but we declined....

This was a little jewel on a quiet street, just a block away from the beach. Can't wait to return. The owners take obvious pride in making sure their guests are happy and the facility is immaculate! Great breakfast too! And their coffee is the best.

A recently renovated "motel" by the sea. Very clean and comfortable, good location a block from the beach, a heated pool. The owners are extremely nice and laid-back. Home-made breakfast food was a plus.
