Clean Hotel Near Everything
This was an exceptionally clean hotel. Maid service was available when we needed it. The room had a good size freezer and a stove. It came with pots and plates and a microwave. There is a pool and a hot tub. You can walk to everything. I could not ask for more.

Not fancy but good service, location, cleanliness.
I recommend this place! In person is a little better than pictures. Actually is unbelievable that those guys do not renew the furniture, they could only pant nicely and it would be a high rate stay in SB!! Other than that, place is really good. We got there late night and Ben (reception) was very welcoming. After the room: clean and comfy.
