Very Clean and Accommodating
We have stayed in this historic place before. This time we happened to catch Santa Barbara when it was beginning to open back up. The staff was very courteous and the hotel was VERY clean and obviously prepared to keep everyone safe during this time - Great job!
Gene, us2 night trip
Good 6.0
Hotel was nice enough. Small room. Clean. The place seemed like it was teetering towards being luxury, but not quite there. It wasn’t worth the weekday price of $200 plus $15 parking 🤔 Maybe $120. Good location though

Lovely old hotel.
Lovely old hotel. A blast from the past elevator. Great location on the Main Street. Easy walk to lots of shops and restaurants as well as a nice walk to the wine district and water. Room was small but updated and the bed was comfortable. Breakfast was in the lobby and ok. Pastries and bagels.

Although this place is a bit older It was absolutely beautiful and in a wonderful location. Right smack dab in the middle of State Street walking distance from the beach and everywhere you would want to go.
