Reviewed 7 July 2017

I prefer small boutique hotels and this is one I would stay at again. The location in Montecito allows you to walk to excellent restaurants and shops. The bathrooms are on the small side but clean. The pool area is small but a really nice setting. I would definitely stay again in a suite instead of a standard room.

Although location is adjacent to a busy freeway the rooms are quite insulated from the noise. It is small and quaint and part of the coast village where there are plenty of restaurants to choose from since their own restaurant was closed for renovation.
Very pleasent neighborhood to stroll through on your way to Montecito and Butterfly beaches, and enjoy the beautiful restaurant at the Biltmore. Also a short drive to hiking trails of the coastal foothills above Santa Barbara for a spectacular view of the Pacific.

We enjoyed our stay as staff was very friendly and helpful and the complementary breakfast was quite a nice surprise (Multi-grain scone was great!); however, there were a few cons to our stay: 1) elevator was out during out stay, 2) our fire alarm in our room was going and and thus started beeping every 30 seconds from around 5:00 am till we were up and dressed to have someone come fix the alarm. 3) Rooms/bathrooms were a tad smaller then we expected for the price we paid to stay but the location was great and we really enjoyed staying in Montecito vs SB since is was a bit more low key but within biking distance to SB downtown.

We loved our luxury room and the staff was amazing. The only thing was the breakfast was nothing. They're in construction of a new food area so the current one is horrible. It was single wrapped bread options like muffins, lemon bread etc., the bananas were not ripe at all
