Charming Inn - Close to the BeachI enjoyed my recent stay at the Montecito Inn. The staff was extremely friendly, welcoming and helpful. The rooms were clean, comfortable and very quiet. The hotel is located within an easy walk to a nice beach and also located very close to many restaurants. I would definitely stay there again.

California Family TripThis hotel was such a pleasant surprise. I chose it as a simple stop on our road trip and it turned out to be my favorite hotel we stayed in. It had so much character.

Nice and clean hotel, with very nice staff. The poor aspect was that it was very loud most nights which had a negative effect on sleep. No effort was made to "make it right" at checkout either.

It's a pretty nice place except that the bathroom shower doesn't drain that well. Also, if possible, get the room upstairs with two floors (living room below and bed on the upper level). It's really cool! Definitely a great place to spend with your significant other :p
