Pretty small rooms, but makes sense since it was built in the 20’s. We got a corner Mountain View room with a king bed. So it was a little larger than our friends’ regular room. But the place was truly charming and historic. Beautiful and very clean. Lovely little town to visit and walk around in. And not far from Santa Barbara. Will definately come again.

Beautiful hotel & gorgeous room. It not only had two amazing beds, but also has two entrance doors and 2 delegate bathrooms. Staff was so great & even got me a hair appointment for the wedding I was attending later that day.
