This old hotel with its rickety elevator and Charlie Chaplin décor exudes charm. We took advantage of off season rates and stayed in a suite. The suite was apparently created from two small rooms, as it had an entrance and a bathroom at either end. It’s a real treat not to have to share a hotel bathroom, but it was a little noisy at night and in the morning.
The staff was very accommodating and friendly. The free continental breakfast was adequate, but not as good as in prior years.
The hotel is located in the heart of Montecito Village, which hosts a plethora of interesting restaurants and beautiful offices.
