Little Gem
Only spent one night here to break the drive from San Luis Obispo to LA. Quiet area and only 20 mins walk to the pier and town centre.

Perfect stop over
This is a motel style hotel in the sense that rooms are in separate buildings accessed externally. It’s quite basic in some ways - air conditioning consisted of a ceiling fan and a free standing fab, which was noisy. It wasn’t hot when we were there but could be an issue in summer. The staff were very pleasant and helpful. The location is great - one street back from East Beach - a two minute walk. We had breakfast at the excellent East Beach Grill right on the beach with a view across to the Channel Islands. Downtown Santa Barbara is a five minute drive. As a first stop on our West Coasr road trip north from San Diego this was perfect.

Comfortable one night stay
The Inn was clean and we got a very spacious room which had a little kitchenette. That was great as we could use the fridge to store snacks and cold drinks. The Inn could do with a bit of refurbishment, although it was very comfortable, clean and everything worked perfectly. The pool area is tiny but then again the beach is across the road so who needs a pool anyway! Town centre is a bit further away but it only takes about 5 minutes to drive there. We stayed for one night only on way from San Francisco to San Diego, in hindsight should have stayed longer as Santa Barbara is delightful. Hotel staff were very helpful! Beach towels could be borrowed from reception.
