The hotel is perfect for a get away where you don't want to drive. One block from the pier and five to six blocks from downtown. The rooms are small, so pack as small a suitcase as possible. They have multiple outdoor seating areas where we enjoyed takeout dinner from the Santa Barbara Shellfish Company with our own wine. Saved a lot of money and didn't have to wait 90 minutes for a table. We had no issue with the shower and they have mirrors in the room so I could do hair and makeup while my husband showered. The staff couldn't have been more accommodating and helpful. We were able to move our room after some noise outside our room the first night. It is in an urban setting so noise should be expected and they provide earplugs.

This hotel was a great location to restaurants, beach, wharf and wine testing! No need to move your car if you just want a great walking location! The staff at the hotel was wonderful! Bikes on property too!

Honestly, I'm touched by her kindness. I've visited a lot of hotel over the years as I travel for business, but I can honestly say I've never met someone so humble, hardworking, and polite in my life. The hotel is good, but Irma bumps this place from 4 stars to 5 in my books. Safe Journeys.

What a great night. Sat outside and watched the world wander by as we ate very well.
A very exciting and different 'Mexican" fare. Limited wine list, but okay. Beers and mixed drinks as well. Started with hot chips and three types of salsas brought to our table. All three were good -- none too spicy. So if you like to go spicy hot, you'll need to ask for an upgrade. Great food and locale. Enjoy.
