Score from 581 reviews Very good
Location, nice to just leave the car at the Inn and walk to the beach any time of day or night. Breakfast provides great options.
No A/C, instead you get a fan in your room, bed springs not comfortable. Pool not warm enough, early morning traffic noise. Limited parking but street parking available. No near-by restaurants. My room had old-style glass-tube TV with poor picture quality.
Loud people on deck, all night
Love the ocean view and easy beach access. It's just a short walk to town and the pier. Friendly staff and laid back atmosphere. Coffee and breakfast treats included.
Bedding could be upgraded.
the location is wonderful, right across the street from beach, walking distance to pier.
Very dated rooms, no microwave or coffee pot, and refrigerator wasn't working. Overall, the rooms were well below standard when paying that kind of money.
Ocean view rooms are the best. But our neighbor was smoking on the patio. So smoke was entering our room.need better selection for breakfast.
Smoking should not be allowed on premises .need better selection for continental breakfast.
Was just across the beach.
Location ocean view
AC threre is nlt any breakfast Parking not enough place Alot of noise till 11:00 pm
This place is very poor. The rooms are small and old. Bed are hard. Patti doors open to the outside and there is no privacy. There are no air conditioners and they give you a small fan which can be used only when you have patio door open. Parking is limited. I have stayed in a third world country in a better place for one fifth the cost. This place is a disgrace.
VERY NEAR THE BEACH, STAFF ARE FRIENDLY AND COURTEOUS
NO AIR CON
Great location for beach at a reasonable price. Helpful staff.
A bit far from the Centre of town.
Location and view from the pool and decks (not from the rooms) is fantastic. The management should use this advantage to keep the property up-to-date and comfortable and they would never be lacking for top-paying clients!
No AC on a hot weekend had management putting fans in the windows and doorways of rooms! So, no security or privacy. Hard mattress and noisy doors, walkway made for a poor night's sleep. The rooms are dingy and desperately need updating.
The rooms were extremely hot. There is NO A/C in the room, so it gets really hot during the day. At night it was still warm because there is no (effective) ventilation system - only a small, clumsy and noisy fan. Also, my refrigerator was not working. I did asked to get it fixed - I even scheduled with the maintenance person through the front desk -, but apperently the people didnt want to help me. And I have asked once everyday I stayed there (3 days). The windows are awful. Most of them face the parking lot and the pool, not the outside or the beach. People can see almost everything you do inside your bedroom. And believe me, it is not worth paying extra money to have an ocean view. The only thing that is worth writing about is the location. The beach is just across the street. But thats it. And I believe that my money was worth way more than just a fair location.
Great location, nice landscaping.
No early check in, staff not very friendly
We really liked the location, right across the street from the beach. We enjoyed taking walks, and this location was ideal. Nice outdoor patio areas near our room.
The Inn is older, and the room was pretty small for the price, but we didn't mind the cost because of the location.
Wonderful location close to beach with an ocean view from our unit. Reasonable price, Nice continental breakfast!
It is an old property and the floorplan of the complex is strange. While air conditioning is not usually needed at the beach in southern california, we were there during a hot period. When we entered our room, two fans were running to keep the place barely comfortable. We were outside during evening, and the room cooled off nicely by bedtime.
Helpfulness of staff at check-in.
The "breakfast". It was mostly breakfast rolls, COLD quiche. Tiny, flimsy paper plates. Just pass on b-fast, have a cup of Joe, and stroll down to the Bathouse and Grill, on the beach about 1 block East. Excellent breakfast (for real), and an ocean -beach view!
Loved being right next to the beach. Great view. Good continental breakfast. Free WIFI. Shirt walk to State Street.
No A/C. Big floor fan but the room was always hot, even if there was a cool breeze outside.
Excellent price for the location across from the beach. If you're looking for high-end luxury, this is not the place. But if you want a comfortable place to sleep near the beach, this is your spot.
Very basic rooms, nowhere to sit in the room except the bed, hear every word from neighboring rooms, bathroom basic but clean
great location, good room and service. Can't ask for more!
super, the beach could be seen right from the door
We had a great ocean view. The proximity of East Beach where Santa Barbara triathlon was held really made Cabrillo Inn the most ideal place to stay for us.
The breakfast was very good and the lady that was working it was so nice.
Just walk across to the beach, take 5 min shuttle to downtown
Not too many rooms had ocean view
Excellent location but dated rooms, no cold water from the taps and noisy air conditioning!
