This is one of the best values I found in the area. It's clean, the service is friendly, and within easy walking distance of the beach. A nice bonus is that the parking is free. The complimentary breakfast is well-stocked with delicious, buttery croissants, fresh muffins, good coffee, and several other items - something for everyone. Nice pool and comfortable lobby. Yes, the furnishings are dated but they're clean and add a retro feel to the place. Would definitely stay here again.

We enjoyed our stay at the Franciscan Inn. It's location is amazing; you're only a few blocks away from the harbor. I had a morning run down there and it was fantastic. The hotel room is a little outdated, but I feel that it added to the quaint atmosphere. I was a bit disappointed in the continental breakfast. We stayed over the weekend, and apparently, their options are more limited during the weekends, while they make pancakes/waffles during the week when it is less busy. The only vegan option I could eat was an apple. The location was the overall best thing about the Franciscan Inn.

Great location, 3 blockes from the beach and 20 minutes walk to State St. on the other side of the highway (there's a walkway) with great shopping and amazing restaurants. The room is very nice with a king bed, and amenities. We got a room with A/C. A must for us as this is a motel. Very nice area. clean and well kept.

Room Tip: get A/C. not every room has it.

Clean, quiet, and reasonably priced, but could use a little upgrading. Breakfast is offered, but there is really no place to sit with a group and eat. On the plus side, when my plans changed and I had to stay in Santa Barbara and extra day, the hotel was extremely accomodating.

Room Tip: Ask for a room that has been recently renovated or one that is away from main street.

A small but attractive family owned hotel with a room that was average size but comfortable, well decorated, and well kept for $155 a single night. They do have larger suites available. Came with a simple but complete continental breakfast served by our hostess Carol who was a joy to meet. Staff were all very friendly. The location is ideal to walk for shopping on State Street or eats, and going to beach or pier. The location and quality justified the price.
