What it's like
The cozy two-story property, with 33 guest rooms accessed by outside doors, follows the contour of the pool—great for a quick evening dip. The Santa Ynez mountains rise above the rooftops to enhance the close-in, intimate feel. Superior Rooms have gas fireplaces, and the Junior Kitchen Suites include full kitchens and dining areas—ideal for families or extended stays. All guestrooms match the Santa Barbara vibe with exposed-wood beach-house-style ceilings, natural hues and faux-stone headboards.

A complimentary continental breakfast is served daily in the small and welcoming lobby—perfect for a grab-and-go meal before picking up a bike from the inn’s rental service.
