This is a nice little motel. Location is the best thing about this place. It is right across the street from the wharf. it is also less than a block from the trolley that takes you up State Street to all of the restaraunts and shops. This motel also has a sun deck that is a nice place to sit and look out over the water. It's a great place to catch a sunrise or to have a little quiet time early in the morning.
It is a "no frills" budget motel. Our room was clean and comfortable. King size bed. Our room had two bath tubs. One in the bathroom and a jacuzzi tub near the bed. The towels are the cheapest quality. Small and kind of scratchy.
The breakfast was simply a cup of juice and/or coffee and a individually wrapped pastry like you get at a gas station qwik mart. The parking lot is very small... We were afraidd to move our car thinking we might not have a space when we returned.
All and all it was a good experience considering the price and we will repeat the next time we sneak away to Santa Barbara. Staying there leaves a few more dollars in our pocket for shopping.
