Beautiful setting, comfortable stay

  • 5 of 5

The other five-star reviews are well written and I won't try to elaborate. Our main complaint is we didn't leave enough time to enjoy the area. Would love to come back.

Quiet retreat in Santa Barbara foothills

  • 5 of 5

Clean, comfortable and filled with light, the Palace was a wonderful place to spend a 3 day week-end. Inside there is ample room for two, and the addition of the courtyard for access is wonderful. The garden outside is a reflective place to sit and observe the hummingbirds. Close to downtown and the major tourist attractions though so nice that I did not want to leave. Glad we chose this place to stay!

Gorgeous and serene courtyard. Beautiful location. Great nearby hiking trail. Not far drive from downtown and beach. They really paid attention to detail...comfy sheets, robes, great shower head, cable tv, wifi. They were kind and happy to help with any recommendations for my stay in Santa Barbara. I really felt both at home and on vacation. Would definitely come back. Enjoy!

Quiet and secluded

  • 5 of 5

Known as the "Palace", this lovely suite is equipped with a nice kitchen and spacious room. A private entry way overlooks a courtyard and garden. Situated in the hills above Santa Barbara, it's still within minutes of town. Loved my stay and hope to come again soon.
