          This is a modest, comfortable, clean hotel with helpful, cheerful staff. The room was really nice, the free breakfast options were fresh and healthy, and the location is fantastic - this hotel is within walking distance of the entire harbor and many fun, good restaurants.

          we booked a room thinking the place was pet friendly but when we arrived, we were told no pets. The web site says pet friendly but we had a bad experience here, being turned away with our poodle. We are going back to Santa Barbara and as we are BW rewards members we prefer to stay in BWs, but we are very confused by the mixed messages at this hotel
