    From book in to check out this motel and its staff delivered. Free coffee and cookies each afternoon, clean and tidy rooms and only a 5 minute walk to the beautiful Santa Barbara seafront and Main Street. I can't wait to return

    The beach is about 2 blocks and lower state street is about 4-5 blocks away. It's a nice walk into town if you are a walker.
