We wanted to experience a typical American Motel, and after some weeks in large hotels, this was just the place. Our check in man was very friendly and recommended an excellent restaurant for dinner. I loved our king bed and the two boys loved a queen bed each, so thanks for not having those hated double beds we see so...

Really can't find anything to recommend about this place. Room too small for 2 beds, thin walls and ceilings so you hear every tread of your neighbours, pathetic breakfast, yellowing sheets, clunky room heater. Not a good way to enjoy this lovely town

Thank you for your recent stay and comments. We have two types of rooms with two queen beds. One is a limited ocean view at approximately 225 square feet and our full ocean view at approximately 325 square feet. Our limited QQ rooms can feel small given that we made a choice to have queen size beds versus the smaller...

PREFACE: We had never visited Santa Barbara, but had heard raves about what a neat town it is. Decided to go after travels to Orange, CA. Went on the Internet looking for a hotel ... cost was important, and we wanted to be on or near the beach. We booked the Cabrillo given favorable Trip Advisor reviews, rates, and claimed...

Thank you for your kind comments about your experience with us and our beautiful seaside town of Santa Barbara. Yes our Oceanfront "East Beach" location cannot be beat and with our surprisingly affordable rate, allows us to say that we are the best value at the beach. Yes our rooms are fairly standard and but cleanliness and functionality are our...

Second time we have stayed here and the location cannot be beaten! The pool area is great, and proximity to beach and Grill cafe perfect for families. Very relaxed feeling to the place, you seem to be able to 'bring your own' anything! Front desk were quick to respond when we had a noisy neighbour. Am not a fan of...

We stayed here for 4 nights during August. This hotel is very good value for the excellent location but the rooms could do with a little up-dating. We asked for a sea view which was a little extra but well worth it as we had a very large (shared) terrace which was a lovely place to have breakfast or sit...

The rooms were typical motel rooms, nothing spectacular, but clean, but the location of the Cabrillo is excellent. Lovely pool and garden in front of the hotel. No restaurants close by (except at the Hyatt next door) but no hardship to take the nice stroll along the prom or the 2 minute drive into town or the Wharf to eat....

The rooms are clean, quiet, and good sized. The pool was enjoyable. The hotel's location is across the street from the beach. The breakfast is typical. The hotel is a bit pricey, but reasonable for Santa Barbara.

I've stayed at the Cabrillo Inn several times over the last 6 years. Now, I'm a low maintenance girl, no need for fancy stuff, so this place is perfection to me! A view of the ocean across the street, a pool kept at a comfortable temp for those cool Santa Barbara evenings, clean, great staff, funky beach vibe that I...

Thank you Suzannees for being one of our valued returning guests and your supportive comments. Yes our Ocean front "East Beach" location is in a class of its own.

We booked this hotel primarily based on price and location. Most of the hotels along that stretch fetch higher nightly rates and we were only looking for a place to stay after a concert. We ended up having to book two nights, as they had a minimum stay but with that being said, still cheaper than one night at the...

It's a nice lovely place just across the road from the beach. Has its swimming pool and complimentary simple breakfast. Wifi is also free and works well. Parking is free of charge as well. Not many restaurants close to the hotel though, probably one only. The rooms are spacious but a little bit aged, furniture and interrior stuff do not...
