We absolutely loved the atmosphere and location of this quaint B&B. The rooms were very clean and the service (especially the fully breakfast the next am) was fabulous. Would recommend to anyone looking to get away for a romantic weekend in Santa Barbara. Its a real gem. We will definitely be back.

We have just returned from our relaxing get-away at the Old Yacht Club Inn in Santa Barbara.. The Inn is a charming little Mission Craftsman Home in a fabulous location, just a stones throw from a magnificent beach. It was so homey that it was hard to pull ourselves away from the Bed and Breakfast however since the Inn offers...

My wife and I stayed there one night . The innkeeper was ill so the housekeeper and another woman helped out as best they could. There was supposed to be wine and cheeze at a " social time " but no wine and cheeze ever showed up. One guest had a plugged up toilet and had to call an emergency...

Thank you for your comments. Valuable feedback from our guests helps us serve our guests better and helps to effectively meet our clients expectations. However, sometimes our practices may need explaining as people who are not in the hospitality business may not understand why and how certain practices occur. First of all, we do not expect guests to use a...

We stayed one night. Early November 2008 we drove and stayed in B&B's from La Jolla to Pacific Grove - along the California Coast Highway. The Old Yacht Club was the worst B&B I have ever stayed in - and I wouldn't stay there if it were only $59 a night. The room was a badly converted living room in...

Dear Carol and Brad, Santa Barbara has one of the highest and hottest real estate markets in the world. So your comparison to staying in other places you have stayed you may get less room but more of what Santa Barbara really has to offer. We are located a block from the beach. The weather and proximity to the amazing...

I appreciate your feed back. Sounds like you found us to be affordable and comfortable after taking the time to find the right place for your special stay with your boyfriend. We were sold out which is why you experienced two different rooms as your stay was very last minute. I wish you had spoken to us about there we...

My boyfriend and I walked in on a Wednesday evening looking for an affordable room for 3 nights. We stayed in the Portofino for two nights and moved to Galvellar for one night.

Owner and staff bent over backwards to make us comfortable. The Belle Caruso room felt like a private cottage with its own interior deck and chaise lounge.

The main problem that I have with this property is that it advertises itself as first class when the reality is that it is not. The rooms are second -rate, the ocean is not visible from the property, the food is so-so, and the noise level caused by the nearby trains screaming in the middle of the night is unreal....

The Old Yacht Cl;ub Inn strives for first class service and value, which most of our guests find to be true based on most of our feed back and number of return guests. We are located one block from the ocean and do not advertise the property anywhere as having ocean views. If we did have ocean views current market...
