Cute, back-in-the-day motel. Cheapest we Could find in Santa Barbara. Free, strong Wifi, free breakfast and parking. Coffee at breakfast was lovely, breakfast consisted of pastries, muffins and granola bars.
The rooms are clean and large enough for a few nights. The motel is situated about a ten minutes walk away from the pier and main area of Santa Barbara
Also have a cute spa/hot tub.
Would recommend. :)
