This is a sweet economical room with fridge, microwave and coffeemaker. Beater beach bikes and beach supplies are a nice plus. The room was as described and photographed. Communication was superb. Priced correctly, too.

I had read the reviews carefully but I try to always see the "sunny side" of things. This is NOT a hotel, this is a guesthouse. You get a code for a lock box and a set of instructions. The house was split into 3/4 rentals. Our room could be described as "shabby chic" or run down depending on your...

Myself and 3 others stayed here. Fantastic little place to stay. We were only here for 1 night and loved it. It was very clean, nice large area for the 4 of us (one large king bed and another couch/bed with a bed underneath that rolled out). Communication with our host Brianna was minimal but we got all the info...

This is a well equipped room which is very close to the beach and about half an hour from the pier. East Beach Grill serves the best breakfast and is a 5min walk away. I was travelling with a friend so the suite with one bed and one sofa bed suited us well. Santa Barbara mission is near by and...

This is a charming place , only a block from the beach. The room was clean, but hot and there is no A/C. My room was adequate, but not perfect. The fridge was iced up and kept defrosting making every thing in the fridge wet. There was mould behind the sink taps, and there was no daily maid service. There...

Thank you for your feedback. Yes, we are vacation rentals so it is set up more as a "self check-in" kind of place. However, we live across the street and are always nearby to address anything that you may need during your stay. All guests are sent an email confirmation the time the booking is confirmed with access instructions. I...

We stayed at the Ocean Breeze Mesa House, one of the Old Yacht Club Inn properties, and it was terrific! It was plenty of room for 3 adults and 2 small children. The location was perfect for us: quiet, in a nice residential neighborhood, safe, close to the beach, and a very short driving distance (within a few minutes) to...

We had a lovely two-night stay at the Old Yacht Club Inn as we passed through Santa Barbara. It is perfectly situated near the beach, and we made use of the beach chairs and towels they lend out. The room was charming and comfortable, and downtown was a very short ride away.

This place is lovely - a short walk from the beach, and every amenity you could ask for. We've been travelling on the road for 2 weeks, so being able to do a little bit of washing, cook your own food and feel totally at home was exactly what we needed. It's a peaceful location, and it's a long walk...

We loved staying in the Old Yacht Club Inn. It is warm and inviting. Built in the 1920's and one of the original Yacht Clubs for Santa Barbara, it had all the charm of that era but also well kept. The King size bed was very comfortable. The front porch was so inviting to read with a glass of wine....

We stayed at lovely cottage behind OYCI. Secluded. Lovely. Remodeled Bath with full kitchen along with washer and dryer. All amenities of home. Ideally located near beach. Highly recommended. A bargain for the price.
