We stayed here for 5 nights. It's within walking distance of State Street, right next to West Beach and the volleyball nets. The hotel is kinda old but so are a lot of other hotels in the area. The room was clean, and well kept. Breakfast was OK, the earlier the better so it's fresh. Eggs, bacon or sausage, cubed...

Stopped in Santa Barbara and found this hotel when looking to somewhere to stay for the night. Good, clean family room that was spacious and with good sized beds. We were on the second floor overlooking the harbour so had good views but it was a little noisy with the room above returning home at 02.00! Breakfast was great -...

If you are looking for the very basic and minimum then this is the hotel for you. If you are looking for something moderate or better, then do not stay here. This is basic at best. The hotel needs a HUGE update and upgrade.

Had several refreshing swims in the heated pool--nice and warm, perfect for relaxing. The staff were so friendly! Offered several helpful suggestions based on my interest in seeing gardens. Location is quiet though right opposite the west harbor/beach area. Close to small market and Toma's--number one rated restaurant in Santa Barbara (Trip Advisor).

Good location close to downtown and across the street from the marina. Although this is an older property with a funky layout, small rooms, and exterior walkways, the room was nicely renovated and generally clean. The property was very well maintained by an extensive and polite staff. Breakfast was better than expected. Lots of reasonably priced parking. Overall, I thought...

Hi Chainsaw, Thanks for noticing the positives given the older nature of our little hotel. For the moment, we can't change the overall look of the hotel, but we sure try to make our guests feel welcome, and in your case sounds like we succeeded again. Thanks so much!! HJRobbins - GM

This is an older hotel than has been remodeled, and the staff takes excellent care of the facilities and the guests. We selected this hotel because it is pet friendly, we were pleasantly surprised with the great location right across the street from the waterfront park beach and all the harbor attractions.

Hi Gordy, Thanks for all your kind words. Much appreciated! As for the internet, I looked into the issue and had seen that our provider "capped" out individual users by accident. I had that removed and we are now again "full throttle" Come give it a try. See you soon! HJRobbins - GM

Prescott, United States

Great place to get away for a few days. Good location on the beach for a reasonable price. Friendly and efficient staff. Very good breakfast included. Parking off street (small fee) is in a protected area. Convenient walk to harbor and wharf, beach trolley stops in front of hotel. Although this is an older building, it has been upgraded nicely.
