    Will Surpass Your Expectations!
    This was a last-minute getaway for just one night. Usually when a small hotel like this gets extremely high reviews I feel it is because the experience surpassed the expectations of the guest; not that it's necessarily a top-notch hotel. The reviews for this place were so consistently high that I felt comfortable with the decision to stay here but allowed for rating "inflation." Based on our experience, it's hard not to give it a 5 Star Review! The warm and friendly greeting you get from the owners and staff is like a blast from the past. You really feel like they want to make your stay as perfect as possible. The building is not new by any account, but the owners have done great things with it - older on the outside and brand new on the inside. We stayed in one of the "superior" rooms upstairs. It was beautifully remodeled, was clean, very comfortable, and plenty of covered parking. Three things you can usually expect in an older building are small rooms, small bathrooms, and not enough outlets. Ok, the bathroom is on the small side, but not too small. As for the room, it was huge, and the outlets were plentiful. It's not right on the beach, but it's only about 200 yards away. If you plan on taking advantage of the breakfast, don't bring a big appetite, it's mostly finger foods and teas and coffee, but what they have is tasty. We didn't swim in the pool, but I did check it out and the water was quite comfortable. Kudos for the great service, and we will be back!

    Very Good8.0
    More like a B&B than a hotel
    We chose the hotel based on location and reviews, and they were all spot on. Our first night was a bit dicey due to the noise from the room above, but Jennifer and Greg were very kind and moved us to a corner upper room with an actual view of the ocean, and everything was great after that! This is a no frills hotel in probably the best location in Santa Barbara, quiet yet walkable to everywhere and the owners could not have been nicer. They also serve a lovely totally homemade light breakfast that was delicious. Thank you, we hope we have a chance to return!

    Great Friendly Place
    We stayed 4 nights at the Pacific Crest and it was perfect for Santa Barbara. So close to the beach and the water, but also a quick 3-10 minute drive from literally everything. The owners really took care of us, gave us advice around town, and even helped with reservations on a celebratory dinner for us! Would definitely stay here again if back in town.
