My boyfriend and I stayed here over a weekend for his 30th birthday. We had called ahead to let them know we were celebrating his birthday, and they upgraded us to a beautiful ocean view room for the occasion. The rooms are really cutely decorated with some bright color accents. They have bike cruisers free of charge for 2 hours, which we used one day to cruise up and down the coast. Santa Barbara is very bike-friendly with full bike lanes on most roads, so that made the bike ride even better. The hotel is located directly across the street from the harbor and pier area, and just a couple blocks from State Street. We walked to meals everyday, but it would also be a very short and cheap taxi ride. We had no complaints over the b-day weekend!
