This is a motel style beach front hotel but it seems to have been recently refurbished. Location is brilliant and parking included is a plus. We didn’t stay for wine and cheese - but did have breakfast in the morning (bagels, muffins, fruit and cereal) Wifi was a bit patchy and the mattress a little too hard, but we enjoyed our stay and would recommend it.

Booked a room online and didn't realise that it was a ground-floor motel style room. Overheard a couple of walk-ins being quoted astronomical prices in reception for what was very basic accommodation. The cheese and wine offering was small and unlike other Californian hotels. Breakfast was very limited. Location is good - on the front and car parking is free of charge.

This property is located perfectly for exploring Santa Barbara's waterfront and neighboring areas such as State Street on foot. The staff provided exceptional service throughout our stay and the room was superb. We had a ground level room with a little patio out front. We will definitely use the spa/pool next time as it was a very nice area. The grounds are impeccable with tropical plants and grass and the ambiance was charming. This is now going to be our "go-to" place for all future trips to Santa Barabra and it should be yours as well. I should also mention the very well-stocked and popular continental breakfast for guests.

It is hard to believe that the room was 500.00. There is no possible way it is worth that money. The location is great, but the room is plain, fairly noisy if you have a harbor view, and what you would expect from a motel. If you are all about the location, then yes,.. if you want something that feels worth the money, then no.

Staff was friendly and the room was comfortable. The best thing about the hotel is the location, right near the pier and the marina. The grounds were nice, with lots of flowers and citrus trees. The grab-and-go breakfast was pretty good. The nightly wine and cheese was a nice addition. The hotel is not fancy, but definitely met our needs.

Rooms were comfortable and clean. The staff was very friendly. The location across from the beach was great. You could walk along the cement path or in the sand. The pier was within easy walking distance.

What a lovely place to stay in Santa Barbara, great location for the beach, marina, restaurants and shops. The staff are a pleasure to deal with, the pool is a nice place to relax, it's only small, but that means it's not busy, and the rooms are well spec'd and comfortable.

Family members joined us for All Dons Reunion 2022 at Santa Barbara High School, we spent weekend with all comforts of home. We cooked, hung out at the pool, and enjoyed seeing all that our hometown has to offer. We will plan another weekend like this for the future long before the next reunion.
