Our newly remodeled rooms are both functional and beautiful offering guests luxuriously comfortable beds and high-end amenities. Each of our rooms includes free Wi-Fi and its own coffee maker so you can enjoy freshly brewed coffee first thing in the morning while updating your social media accounts with all the gorgeous photos you took of Santa Barbara.
