Location is terrific - just a block or so off the beach and there was a view of the ocean from our room. Room was clean, comfortable bed, with a/c. The staff is super friendly and went out of their way to make us feel comfortable - they even texted me to confirm our arrival and what time our room...

We stayed at Pacific Crest for one night as part of our two week road-trip around the west coast and I really can't recommend it highly enough. From the moment we arrived we were made to feel at home. The hotel is conveniently located for the Wharf, the urban wine trail and the Funk Zone - all easily walkable (or...

I stayed one night recently to attend a family member's memorial service. The owners were just fantastic - so warm and caring - and the rooms were immaculate and cozy. The breakfast was homemade and out of this world divine!!! The proximity to the beach is a huge plus too! I'd definitely choose to stay here again on any future...

Warm welcome at check in. Good recommendations for things to do and places to see. Just a short walk to the beach. Santa Barbara is a very nice place to visit and this hotel is a great base to make the most of it. Would definitely recommend.

My husband and I stayed for one night recently when in town for a concert. The property was clean and a super short walk across the street to the beach. I loved that the floors were not carpeted - no musty hotel smell! It felt more like staying in a friend's guest room.

Based on great reviews, we made this reservation for the night while travelling up the California coast. It did not disappoint! Our room was wonderful, we were a short drive from lots of dinner choices downtown, we slept restfully and breakfast was great!

My partner and I decided to choose this cute boutique hotel because of the great reviews it had gotten on here and we couldn't agree with them more. We were greeted by Greg when we checked in. He was friendly and very helpful when asked about things to do. The hotel is a very enjoyable walk (about 1.5 miles) to...

What a great quaint little B&B. The owner Greg made sure our stay was excellent and referred us to some of the best food, hikes and places in Santa Barbara. The rooms were very clean and the bedding was very comfortable.
