“Great little place to stay”
Reviewed 8 June 2012

Picked this motel after finding a coupon in a Travel coupon guide, rang late at night after travelling 10 hours down the coast, staff more than happy to accommodate. Staff friendly and helpful, room small but more than adequate for two people. Parking right outside room. Great clean decor with funky colors. Breaky average but hey it's included. Not within walking distance to attractions but a very short drive. Ended up adding an additional night. Overall good little place to stay, would recommend.

Nice furnitures, colors and the whole design. Also the staff was very friendly and we had nice chats. Definitely a recommendation and one of the better inns we visited!

Very small, about 10 rooms. You can tell it used to be an old motel, but has been updated with cute styling and bright colors on the exterior. The room was fine, few ants in the bathroom and a broken shelf. Not in walking distance from the attractions on State Street. Free wifi and ample parking at the Inn. Complementary breakfast consistent of fruit and cookies served on top of the dryer. We stayed over memorial day, So rates were probably much higher than normal. For what we paid (about $200 a night) I would recommend something a little closer to town.

The Inn is well kept. Clean. However the room is so small. Not that much room to put lugguages and the space is very tight for two people to walk around or sit to do anything. For staying overnight to break up the journey is okay. I do not advise people who would like to visit Santa Barbara for vacation or need to stay for few days to stay in this Inn. Although it includes breakfast, there is no room for you to sit down to have breakfast. You need to bring to the tiny room to have your breakfast. It is very uncomfortable to enjoy a cup of coffee in the morning. Also the breakfast is very minimum. That is better to go somewhere else to have a good cup of coffee. For people has rush schedule and need to leave in the morning. That is okay to stay in this inn for the price.

Wonderful renovated motel! We selected this hotel for staying a couple of days in Santa Barbare on our trip along the Californian coastline. We selected it based on its website and some tripadvisor review .... the outcome: great! Colorful rooms equipped with microwave, docking station for iphone, flat tv, small table for having your own meals in the room. Super clean, friendly reception and convenient location. Breakfast is included but very basic. All in all: great!
