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.

We had a wonderful stay at this charming place! Steps from the beach, they provided beach chairs, umbrellas, bicycles, etc. The room was very comfortable, the shared balcony and whirlpool tub were added bonuses. Would definitely stay here again!

I really enjoyed my stay at Old Yacht Club Inn. I was tired of staying at typical hotels, so I tried this place and it was a very pleasant experience. All of the little touches certainly added up. They had free bike rentals, free parking, free wi-fi, and it was just a block from the beach. It really felt like...

This is a fabulous place to stay in Santa Barbara. We had the Santa Cruz room that include a darling sun room with a day bed. It is two blocks from the beach, clean, quiet with adequate off street parking. Our fire alarm went off for no reason and the owners showed up immediately and took care of it (I...

there are two houses on this property, and we had the bottom suite in the second house. After looking at other review we were apprehensive,but this thankfully, as unfounded. There is no person to meet you on check-in, however we were able to instantly reach someone when we had a question. Quiet street, beautiful room, and we want to come...

My husband and I recently stayed for our anniversary night and everything was wonderful! Room was spacious, charming and antique, but very clean. All the conveniences you would need was in our room: Refrigerator, microwave, coffee maker (full size!) cups, dishes and utensils. They even provide beach towels!

Pros: - Charming little place with history - Clean bathroom and comfy bed - Walking distance to the pier and downtown Cons: - Single pane windows cause for a very noisy night due to train tracks being very close and trains running and blowing their horns at night - Nobody on site to assist the guests - Heater was on...

We so enjoyed our weekend getaway at the Old Yacht Club Inn! Brianna is such a gracious host and not only was our room lovely...we also enjoyed listening to the rain on the front porch, sitting by the fire in the living room and making tea and coffee at our leisure in the kitchen. It was truly a home away...

We really enjoyed our stay at the Old Yacht Club. It had a very nice charm to it and the rooms were clean. It is a short walk to the beach and a very close drive to the shops on state street. I recommend this to anyone wanting a nice relaxing weekend in Santa Barbara.

There are two houses: we were in the Hitchcock house in the Santa Cruz suite. There is no innkeeper. You get an email with instructions on how to open the lock box and that's it. When we got to our room, it was dirty. The bathroom looked like someone took a mud bath in the tub, the sink was grimy...

I am sorry for your disappointment. As you experienced, we had a big wind storm during your stay which knocked off the window screen in the bathroom which blew in dirt from outside. We take pride in our clean rooms, and this was an unusual circumstance. We sent our maintenance crew over to clean the tub and fix the screen...
