    Good choice

    This is a lovely little hotel in a wonderful area of SB to stay in. I walked to the pier for coffee every morning and was able to enjoy a nice three nights. The room was very small, no refrigerator but the price was right. I would stay here again, there was no housekeeping due to Covid but that was fine with me. Free parking, excellent bed!

    some bathrooms updated some outdated

    This was my second stay in a month. I chose this place because my first stay was excellent. This time I got a room with a dated bathroom, much to my disappointment. My first trip was solo and thought I was going to treat my wife to a nice little place with updated style for good value. I did not know that some rooms were updated and some were old. Overall good location and nice place, just make sure you know which room you are getting. Overall good value but I would have paid the extra for nicer amenities for the room.

    This is has been our Santa Barbara weekend place for many years. In a quieter residential area close to the beach, but off the busy Cabrillo Blvd.
