Very nice room. Small bathroom. Very nice, friendly staff. Breakfast is small but adequate. Good coffee available all day. Have stayed here many times for medical trips to the area. Would definitely recommend.

Clean, safe, great location. Room well appointed. Breakfast and afternoon fresh baked cookies with coffee, tea. Staff friendly and helpful. Offered local map and pointed out great restaurants and all sights along State Street. Within walking distance to main drag, wharf, beach.

This is my go to inn in Santa Barbara. Away from the hectic pace of downtown but still accessable to it. Good restaurants within walking distance and can take a beach walk in the morning. Bed linens are great quality and beds are super comfy....More

You'll have to walk to the beachfront and then up State Street, but it's about half an hour in total. Or you can walk to Stearns Wharf (about 10 minutes) and get the free shuttle up to the Downtown areas.

No views from our room. We were in the first floor. I would not expect great views, since the hotel is a block or so from the coast, and it is not a tall building.
