The place is beautiful, very friendly staff, and very close to a the nicest beach in Santa Barbara. Almost no negatives except no coffeemaker in room( maybe because of covid) and my room couldn't connect to wifi. They give you free masks and sanitzer upon request. The hotel restaurant is rated one of the best restaurants in Santa Barbara. All in all, a very nice experience.

Exceptional 10.0
This place was MUCH nicer and cleaner than expected. Fantastic service and the food from their restaurant while not excellent (octopus a bit chewy and dry) was pretty good. Loved that it was right across the street from the beach. If you're doing the PC highway don't hesitate to stay here :)

Covid get away
A beautiful little boutique hotel across from the beach. Extremely clean and well kept. It was very easy to keep our distance from other hotel guests and the staff made you feel very safe regarding Covid precautions. Lovely restaurant with outdoor seating. Only wish they had more variety for breakfast. Other than that everything was amazing!
