            10.0

            Delicious continental breakfast, on the third floor. Giant windows overlooking the beach and ocean. When we entered our room, the room looked just as wonderful as the pictures online.

            Only negative comment, there was a person walking on the roof, that was apparently drinking alcohol and didn't belong there. We reported it to the desk.

          • Group of friends
            7.4

            Close to the beach easy shuttle access charming atmosphere friendly staff spacious rooms comfortable bed and pillows

            Bathroom toliet was clogged

            6.2

            I liked the location and the spacious room

            The hotel was kind of old-fashioned and needed redecoration

          • Group of friends
            10.0

            Location and leaving the sliding glass door open all the time for the fresh ocean air. Also it did not have the "hotel carpet" smell. The hotel had a very nice fresh ocean smell.

            In room carpet needed to be replaced it was faded.

          • Older travelers
            6.4

            We were dissapointed in the overall condition of this hotel. It is apparent that the ownership is only putting in minimal maintainance. Unless there are some upgrades or very special pricing it is unlikley we would choose this location again. We travel to Santa Barbara 2-3 times a year and will research other properties.

          • Family with children
            10.0

            Location right across the street from the beach.

            Parking. If you want to park in the sbi parking lot you have to use valet @ 7.00 a day fee. We parked on the street to avoid the fee.

          • Single
            6.4

            Room smelled of old cleaning solution and didn't go away with windows wide open.

          • Group of friends
            8.4

            We were pleasantly surprised with the Inn. We were in sb overnight to enkoy the Pink Martini's and stayed in adjoining rooms 205 qnd 206. Ocean view, pool side. Comfortable bedding but, the carpets need cleaning. Also, the walls are very thin at this property. We heard a television and kids until 2 am. Overall, for the price...we were satisfied.

          • Couple
            7.4

            The interior decor was beautiful. We enjoyed the wine and cheese hour and coffee in the lobby.

            The spread for the contintental breakfast could use some improvement.

          • Couple
            7.8

            Right across the street from the beach and a few blocks from downtown - great location.

            The room could have used some cosmetic remodeling (ripped molding, stains on the carpet) but otherwise very comfortable.

          • Couple
            8.2

            the location by the ocean was awesome, i had a ocean view from my patio which was amazing.

            I didnt like paying for my car to be valeted after spending so much money on the room though

          • Older travelers
            5.4

            Location

            Dated faciiltiy, needs refurbishing.

          • Group of friends
            10.0

            The staff were very welcoming but the beds, they were so comfortable - it was like sleeping on air! Our rooms were on the first floor and we sat on the patio and enjoyed the ocean view.

            We had 2 rooms right next to each other with totally different designs plus one had a/c and one didn'T...odd.

          • Single
            7.0

            Room was large and amenities sufficient. Desk and Valet staff (only persons I dealt with) were helpful and friendly.

            Room overlooked parking lot and depressing area. I would only stay in an "outward" facing room. very expensive due to busy weekend.

          • Older travelers
            7.4

            The room was bright and right across from the beach.

            The description of the room said it had a balcony which sounded good. What is didn't say was that it overlooked the parking lot.
