Clean and contact less checkin, excellent location, great on site restaurant with outdoor dining. rooms have balconies and views....

Great location, valet team and virtual concierge staff. Room was comfortable with heated bathroom floors! We'll be back.

Nice hotel just across the street from the East Beach. The rooms have been updated, but common areas look a little dated. You can park across the street for free to avoid paying for valet parking.

We stayed in an ocean view room and it was absolutely beautiful. It was our anniversary and we’re really tired of being cooped up in the house for two months, so going to Santa Barbara was a great way to get refreshed. The beach is open, so we just had to walk across the street to hang out there - and you can lounge on the beach, unlike LA county. The hotel was great because they had room service for lunch dinner, and for breakfast they gave you yogurts, muffins, and fruit if you went to the front desk to ask for it. The hotel overall was absolutely beautiful and very clean. Definitely recommend it!

Property was very elegant. The staff were very friendly. Check in and out was very easy.

Wonderful facility - great location, impeccable condition, beautiful room, professional service, and terrific price. I will definitely return.

Beautiful, remodeled, clean Inn right across from the beach. I loved my ocean view room with balcony. My stay was very comfortable and relaxing. I gave 4 stars only for the amenities just because it is not actually a full resort. The gym is cute and has a few machines, the breakfast has some fruit and bagels which is really good, but the best part of the stay are the rooms and the really nice location and facility. The coffee they have in the morning is really great too! I am really happy I stayed here!

Location, the staff were incredible, rooms very spacious and comfortable Had great food at the restaurant. Will be back.

"breakfast" is decent. They were understaffed during breakfast hours and did not want to refresh the oatmeal, pastries or bread when it was around 9:30AM. Breakfast ends at 10AM. Hotel front desk was great, the grounds is remodeled for mature folks

Beautiful hotel. But little things matter. Front side rooms look at the ocean. Back side rooms look at telephone poles. Couldn't get hot water for two days. Very warm, but never hot.

Our stay was 5 plus rating! Award Winning food, service, decor, amenities. Our room was so beautiful, the hotel was breathtaking, fireplaces, pool, Jacuzzi, location. We had want of nothing, and heated bathroom floor. The beds were so comfy, rooms were big, balcony nice. We highly recommend this Hotel. The chef's were well skilled, travel and trained in Italy bringing their high skills of culinary to the table. We ate breakfast, included, every morning and evening we ate at the hotel restaurant, the food was that good and always something new to choose from. It was so unbelievable. Just a walk away to bike rentals directly across the street from the beach. We had a wonderful stay. Thank you Santa Barbara Inn.

Excellent continental breakfast. Recently remodeled. A bit expensive but worth it.

Very nice and clean hotel, friendly staff, descent continental breakfast buffet, scross teh street from a wonderful beach and very close downtown and many other attractions
