First time visiting Santa Barbara. Cozy hotel. We’d love to stay in the same place again.

This is a family owned business that offers a very personal touch as they are active in attempting to accommodate their guests. I received great recommendations to local restaurants and attractions as well as an informed overview of the facility. This 3-Star hotel is small but it is located only 1 1/2 blocks from the beach and quite a value when compared to the overpriced hotels in the nearby vicinity. It's a great value.

Amazing! Great service and rooms. Near beach and grocery store

A very friendly updated motel a block from East Beach. The facilities are motel standard (small pool, ice machine), but the large rooms have been handsomely redone, the owners are super friendly, and the beds and bedding are very comfortable-- good sheets, pillows and comforters, not bad motel polyester. A good value in a great location.

Dont stay here unless you are ok with staff charging extra services to your card.

This hotel is a block from the ocean. Quaint hotel. I believe there were some recent improvements in my room so there was some smell I wish there was a fractional rating as the smell was my only negative. Bed comfortable. The biggest thing was the check in process. The attendant walked me to my room to show me to room and amenities - such personal service! Yes, I would come back!

Great location (pretty close to the beach) and very friendly staff. However, to me this is not a hotel but more like a motel

I had a great stay at the Pacific Crest Hotel. The staff was extremely accommodating and my room was clean. Loved being steps away from the beach and enjoyed the pool as well!

its hard to find value for your money at SB hotels, most places are overpriced for what they offer. I thought this hotel did a good job with room updates that felt more modern and coastal compared to similar rooms at other locations and had the amenities people care about. The light breakfast was a nice touch and free parking is needed in this area! Just don't ignore their number-of-guests policy and you'll enjoy your stay!

Perfect little place for a small vacation. We had a fanstastic time and located just outside downtown felt great as the location was quite and peaceful.

Very nice staff with personal focus on their guests. Clean and nicely decorated. Excellent homemade breakfast each morning. Great location a block from the beach.

We stayed 3 days at this hotel and recommend highly. Very clean and comfortable. Bed awesome! Owners Jennifer and Greg were so accommodating. This is a family business and get that personal touch...close to beach and easy trip to downtown Santa Barbara.

This is nice and attractive hotel just a block from east beach The owner/managers are friendly, helpful and know a lot about the city. The hotel is well maintained and always very clean. A tasty homebaked breakfast is served every morning. The rooms look just like the pictures. Our only complaint would be the tiny shower in the queen rooms.

Perfect location a block away from East Beach. The room was clean and recently remodeled. Main problem with the room was the bathroom was very small it they did have a nice full length mirror with outlets so someone could get ready there if bathroom occupied. The owners were very nice and very helpful and the breakfast was homemade and yummy!

Greg and Jennifer are wonderful hosts, the rooms and the beds within are very comfortable, the towels are thick and high quality - just a great room when you need to unwind and get some rest. You can tell that they put some real TLC in all details...and the breakfast is absolutely delicious and a great way to start the day!

We will definitely be staying there next time! Great location, the staff was very helpful and the room was super cute. Very clean and updated.

Anonymous. Not certain which extra services you are referring to, but we only charge for a stay and damages to our rooms as listed in our reservation information. Our rooms are all inclusive. Parking, wifi, breakfast and no resort fee.

Thank you for taking time to review us. Yes, 1/2 block to the beach and we hear the waves when the wind is right :) We have updated our rooms, but nothing recently. We also do not use scent in our rooms, so not sure what you were experiencing with smell. It is good to let us know when you are here so we can address it and make you comfortable during your stay. We will see you back in Santa Barbara!

Dear Anonymous, Thank you for taking time to review us. We are only 1/2 block to East Beach in Santa Barbara, super close. We are considered a boutique hotel, but these days the name you chose is less important than how clean, safe and comfortable we are. We offer a local feeling (since we ARE locals and are family owned and operated). We also provide homemade breakfast in the morning, along with local coffee by Santa Barbara Roasting Company. Our bath amenities are "Beekind" brand where part of the cost we pay goes to UC Davis for bee research. We are proud of what we offer and continue to show our guests the best Santa Barbara style hospitality.
