I was a little worried about staying here just because of how much cheaper this was compared to most other options in the area but I decided to trust other positive reviews and am so glad I did! It's a cute little inn. Rooms are clean, staff is friendly, there was plenty of parking, and you can't beat the location. Will definitely stay here again the next time we're visiting Santa Barbara.

We got married in Santa Barbara and had another hotel booked for the wedding week but decided to come up a day earlier so we stayed for a night here. I was so pleasantly surprised at how nice this spot was for such a great price! The room was really big, the bathroom is brand new and nicely done (I love that they had a drinking water spout at the sink in addition to regular sink), and the room had this beautiful patio covered in tropical plants like Bird of Paradise and palms. I actually ended up doing yoga and a meditation on the porch before we left it was so nice. We got really great sleep, the bed was super comfy! I definitely recommend this spot as a great budget-friendly hotel. Also, it's an easy walk to all of the restaurants and win that Santa Barbara has to offer, and across the street from the beach. We will be staying here again.

Property was very clean, safe and quite.

Nice place. Great location.

Very nice staff. Enjoyed staying in the suite (unexpectedly)! It would have been nice to have reading lamps in the large bedroom (they have them in the smaller one). Great location!

Can't beat the location and friendly staff

1/2 block from the beach, marina area. Excellent and economical

Thanks

Great small Spanish motel

Very good location, close to the main areas of downtown and the piers and in a safe and friendly zone of the city! Felt like at home, strongly recommended!

The hotel room was cleaner than any I've seen. Housekeeping was so efficient, and replaced all the towels and amenities each day. The front desk was very helpful and gave us towels to use at the beach. I would stay here again if I return to Santa Barbara.

Staff was very courteous and great location.

It was a good stay, clean and awesome setup, walking distance from beach and friendly staff

Was out of the way but still close to the beach, shopping and restaurants. Poor quality bathroom amenities (soaps, shampoo & lotions) and not even a continental breakfast or vending machines - cost is Not worth the price. Parking is also extremely tight!

Great location. Very spacious. Cozy

Exceeded my expectations! I stayed in the El Presidente room with a balcony. The hotel was priced great and is within walking distance of everything.
