This is a very cute hotel and it is located smack-dab in the central area of Santa Barbara with the Wharves, State Street and the Funk Zone. We had a very nice room that had a grass area and tables right outside plus a private courtyard. My only complaints were the add-ons to the room price including ...
The hotel was nice, but unfortunately they were remodeling during our visit and the construction noise was bad. We were disappointed that the hotel did not let us know in advance that they were renovating during the time of our stay.

Tucked between the Santa Ynez mountains and the Pacific Ocean, the palm-lined beach city of Santa Barbara is often called the American Riviera. With a distinctly Mediterranean appeal, a temperate year-round climate and stacks of Spanish colonial architecture, it's the perfect Californian destination for a week or even two.
Use Expedia to search through the variety of three-star places to stay in Santa Barbara, from beachside inns, hacienda-style B&Bs and mid-range hotels with views of the ocean. There are several three-star hotels just moments from the beach and Stearns Wharf, as well as in the area surrounding State Street, the city's main drag.
Book a room in a three-star hotel near the southern end of downtown and you'll be a short hop from both East and West Beaches. East Beach is a 1.6-mile stretch with picnic areas, volleyball courts and children's playgrounds, while the smaller West Beach is sandwiched between Stearns Wharf and Santa Barbara Harbor.
Stearns Wharf is the city's historic wooden pier. It's lined with upmarket seafood restaurants, quirky gift shops and lively waterfront bars, and is easily reached from downtown, East and West Beach. A 15-minute stroll east is Santa Barbara Zoo, one of the best small zoos in the country. Time it right and you can hand-feed the Masai giraffes or meet the Humboldt penguins.
Famous for its healthy SoCal cuisine and Mexican favourites, Santa Barbara dining out is a real pleasure. Eat freshly caught fish and chips on Stearns Wharf, or try one of the many modern Californian restaurants which line State Street.
After dark, Santa Barbara lights up when dozens of lively pubs, wine bars and cocktail lounges draw the beach crowds to State Street. Thursday night is college night, when Santa Barbara's student population heads downtown to take advantage of all the drink deals.
