A gem for sure! Great location just steps from the beach. Well cared for property and clean boutique feel. Bed was very comfortable, room was well appointed and roomy. Great area for walking around. Breakfast was fresh and perfect to start your day. Parking and wifi included. Jennifer and Greg were super hosts. Would stay again in a heart beat!

The owners have put a little love into this motel to make it homely and inviting. It is spotlessly clean and has a great location for the beach front. Breakfast was the only disappointment but otherwise highly recommended

Our room was delightful and had everything we needed. It was very clean and modern. The hotel is in an ideal location, near the beach and close to bars and restaurants without being too close to be disturbed in the evenings.

The heated pool was spotless and offered a nice change from the beach. There was also a relaxed atmosphere about the place. The...

This was a very nicely appointed hotel with friendly service from the owners and a nice vibe. Good location close to the beach and only a shame there was no chance for a dip in the pool which looked lovely. We were referred to a local restaurant for dinner which was excellent.

This is a very nice place! The owners, husband and wife, Greg and Jennifer are wonderful. The grounds are immaculate and the spacious rooms are super clean and beautifully decorated. It's in a very quiet neighborhood just across the beach with its own off street parking. The beds and pillows are wonderful! But my favorite part is the delicious spread...

We stayed a night in Santa Barbara on the way to LA. Pacific Crest was clean and comfortable. The owner Greg treats you like family. Even when we were booking he gave us tips on what to see and where to stop on the way down from San Francisco. Truly a kind man. He recommended a nice restaurant for dinner...

Thank you for the wonderful review and comments about our hotel Bruce. We loved having you and the whole family staying here. It is too bad you all only stayed for one night.
