"A Gem in the Heart of Santa Barbara"

“"The location couldn’t be more convenient, just a half block south of the train station on State Street. It’s a short walk to the beach in one direction and downtown in the other. From the moment I stepped into the fresh, bright, modern lobby I was greeted with warm smiles." ”
- Lawrence

"Location, Location, Location!"

“"Very trendy little boutique hotel in the heart of Santa Barbara. Within walking distance to the beach, dining and shopping. Front desk employees were very nice. Quaint sitting areas inside and out throughout the hotel to gather." ”
- AKDeep Diver

"Charming Hotel with Great Service"

“"We stayed here for one night while traveling for a business trip. Booked one of the rooms with the small patio and it was very charming. We had our dog, so it was nice to have a little outdoor space. We did take-out food and ate there on the patio. Special compliments to Mindy who greeted us and also helped us check out."”
