Fun and comfortable stay
Clean and comfortable hotel. Walking distance to beach and to downtown where there’s shops, restaurants and bars. However we didn’t feel like walking the 15 minutes so we took a short and cheap uber ride to downtown. The jacuzzi was a nice relaxing touch. We also enjoyed the microwave and mini fridge! Overall we had a very positive experience for an overnight stay. It is a bit pricey but I guess all hotels are around this area. We had fun though. They also have complimentary breakfast.

Rude awakening
This is a simple motel, great location to restaurants, pier & beach. If your looking for a simple motel to sleep for the night this is the place but if you're looking for more of a luxury resort hotel that compliments being in Santa Barbara this isn't the place. Small restroom, outdated rooms, less then courteous staff. Was awakened by pounding on the door in the morning when I opened the door the female staffer said IT'S PASS 11am GUY, I looked at the time & it was 10 min pass 11am. I have never experienced something like this before. I felt like I was being treated like a bum who hadn't payed to be there. This was so unnecessary & a true showing of what this motel is. Will never come back!!
