Perfect location, beautiful old hotel with lots of charm. Nice complimentary breakfast, walking distance to to the water and all the shops.

Cute, but loud
Great location, but be aware of a couple of important things. First, it's loud (I stayed on a Thur night). I was on the top floor (4th) facing away from the street and you could still hear the sounds of downtown Santa Barbara: street drummers, loud bar goers and house music. Seemed like the windows must have had large gaps because it wasn't much quieter with the windows closed. The elevator takes forever. However, I chalk this totally up to being a old hotel, so kind of cute in a way. Just get ready to walk up and down four flights of stairs on the regular basis. Also, I'm sure others have noted that the rooms are very small... like NYC hotel room small. Fine if you're just one person, but I wouldn't recommend a family stay here.

While I am sure the hotel is ADA Compliant, you might want to inform future and potential guests that the elevator is quite old and slow. While quite charming, it can be a bit of a hassle for multiple trips up to your room from the lobby. Especially for those of us, like me, who have slight mobility issues, and for whom stairways can be a tad troublesome.
