We stayed here for two nights. We were totally impressed from the minute we arrived. ALL staff are cheerful, helpful, efficient and genuine, and there is nothing they will not do to ensure you have what you need. The front desk always has cookies freshly baked, and flavoured water, and coffee... and breakfast is just what we needed. A choice of the usual yogurts, toasting breads, even bacon and potatoes and some version of cheese omelettes (the hot things are microwaved but decent enough). Harvey, the Manager, is THE single biggest asset in this hotel, and he keeps it all going really smoothly. The property is kept completely immaculate. It was quite impressive to see the attention to detail. All the time! The pool area, too, was lovely. You cannot beat the location...water views between the harbour and the wharf. And the price, given the other in-town options, was right. This is not a fancy hotel. This is a great, friendly, low-key but exceptionally run property, in the best location in Santa Barbara. Do NOT miss Toma's next door (no affiliation with the hotel). Absolutely outstanding!
