Comfortable stay with a couple of niggles
Comfortable overnight stay as part of my journey across Highway 1 from SF to LA. The room was quiet, clean and had all the needed toiletries. The inn had plenty of parking space and was located less than a 5min drive to downtown Santa Barbara. I would generally recommend and experienced these little issues: - The room was a bit chilly at night in December 2018 even with the fireplace switched on - A bit of casual racism during check in by the receptionist's comment and misidentifying what type of Asian I am. Probably best left unsaid if unsure.

Lovely hotel, only downside was no elevator so difficult to manage stairs and need to get help with luggage- which was readily available. Staff very pleasant and helpful. Pool fine but felt that you were intruding on area of surrounding rooms. Location was easy to find
