I could 'gush' on forever about this Motel but it would take too long!
Location is ideal for just about everything in Santa Barbara - Pier, beach, sights, shops, restaurants and bars of all types. But that is just the start. Even less usual things are close by: two good shops (there are kitchen facilities in the room), petrol station within sneezing distance, railway station ( I took a ride to Ventura on the fantastic Amtrak train which was very reasonable), park. In a nutshell everything you could need.
There is very reasonable and efficient laundry room. So handy as I was on a fly / drive holiday and over a week in to it.
The service was outstanding, even by the high standards I found in California. I remember a Liz and Anthony who did not know the meaning of 'sorry we don't / can't help with that'. !!
Breakfast indoors or outside
I can't think of one thing to complain about.

.PS Santa Barbara is worth 3 nights at least.
