Very nice, but basic Inn more or less on the beach - only the boulevard between. Although basic, Cabrillo Inn provides what you need in terms of room fascilities etc. The Inn is around 1 mile or so away from Sterns Warf, and another mile or so up State Street to the main shopping areas. Overall good location if you come by car as it still allows you to easily get to a good selection of nightlife and shopping opportunities. Parking is limited, but can be found both right off Cabrillo Boulevard as well as at the Inn office. Continental breadfast is included in the price, but be aware that these breakfasts are very basic so if you got you mind set on a massive buffee this is not it. Still good for some basic energy in the morning bagels and pastry, a few juice options and surprisingly good coffee.
Overall, a very good choice while you explore Santa Barbara.

We decide to drive along the 101 freeway rather than highway 1 as both run inland from the coast (the 101 has yet to turn into the multilane mahem that it turns into as it hits Los Angeles) …
... strolled by. I would guess that pup was about six months old. He or she was a real beauty and made both Marilyn and me quite puppy-sick for our kids!
We continued on strolling the streets and heard a great oom-pa-pa band playing at the local German pub/restaurant... that added great energy and spirit - character - to the area.
Without much to see except for some lovely old architecture, we resigned ourselves back to the car and headed home for our final dinner ...
... arrived at our motel which was right on the beach at Santa Barbara about 2.00 in the afternoon. The motel was lovely and spotlessly clean. The pool was small but adequate with a nice seating area round about. The gardens were beautiful and everything about this motel was well run. The domestic staff worked all day to make sure that everything was maintained to a very high standard. It was a very, very windy day when we arrived and the sand was being whipped up ...
... me but I didn't know what she looked like. So, I asked a lady on a bench: ''Are you Hebe?'' (the name of my host) and she told me that she wasn't and laughed. I was embarrassed a little bit but then I walked and saw Hebe's van and asked once again: ''Hebe?'': she was the one I searched! She is a small and old lady but she is very kind. When we arrived at her house, I didn't know how to feel. It ...
... br> I called the number given and they arranged to send a recovery truck to change the tyre over to the spare. They also found me a local tyre company that had our tyre, which I was to go to when the spare had been fitted. I felt remarkably calm about this. The others had settled at the pool, so I made my way over to the car with a coffee to wait. The phone assistance people said they would get someone to me within the hour.
They were ...
