Wedding Anniversay

by Maria S on 18 Jan 2017 (Couple Traveller)

After being married for so long, I just want a quiet day. Probably just to rest and eat some take out good food at home. I was so wrong! This place is so charming that brought me into romantic mood. Just getting our registration in already impressed me that our stay would be a real celebration for me and my husband. Wines, cheeses, and crackers welcomed us at the lobby. Our room was upgraded when they found out that it is our wedding anniversary into a room that suited our celebration. The place...

Wonderful Getaway

by Ron C on 14 Jan 2017 (Couple Traveller)

My wife and i gave ourselves a getaway for our Christmas present. We chose Santa Barbara and a hotel we'd never tried before. WHAT A GREAT CHOICE! When we arrived we discovered that I had booked the next two nights and not the night we arrived. With a bit of fast finger work and juggling of room placements all was fixed. The room was clean, comfortable, cozy, and definitely romantic. In addition to the lovely room the cold milk and fresh cookies in the evening were a nice treat without having to...

Nice Setting Close to Harbor

by rsf4sail on 08 Jan 2017 (Couple Traveller)

We selected this motel for its proximity to the Harbor and to the Mission. The grounds and buildings are well maintained and the extra touches of offering both a wine and cheese selection in the evening and a continental breakfast in the morning added to our stay. The lavender sachet bags on our bed was also a nice touch. The bathroom had been recently updated with rain shower head. Although with these nice touches the noise from the street traffic and the thin walls would preclude me from stay...

Our Home Away From Home

by mgiesbrecht on 14 Dec 2016 (Couple Traveller)

We have now stayed here 3 times in 3 years and we are looking forward to making it 4 for 4 next year. A typical day for us is an early morning walk along the beach, a wonderful breakfast back at the hotel, a bike ride on one of the hotel's beach cruisers, gin rummy by the pool, hanging out on State St, Happy Hour back at the hotel (where we often meet interesting people from North America and abroad), dinner at Los Agaves, cookies and milk back at the hotel and a movie in our room to cap off th...

Very good value - friendly staff & lots of comfort and extras

by Ticolover on 07 Dec 2016 (Couple Traveller)

Booked sight unseen and we are very pleased with our room, the friendly staff, the local knowledge & helpfulness of the gal at the front desk (carol?) and all the extra amenities that came with our very comfortable room are a pleasant surprise. Good location too. Thought noise might be an issue but it was just one rude, loud neighboring room (not the fault of the inn) who happened to make a lot of early morning jabbering. They were gone after the first night so all was good. Beds are SUPER c...
