Santa Barbara get away

The hotel staff was very accommodating, and we really enjoyed our stay. The only thing that could be improved on is the food at the restaurant that is on site. We would definitely stay here again.

Nice view of the moutains but room too small

Our room had a beautiful view of the mountains and faced the pool. The hotel is clean and well maintained but needs updating. The room was too small for the three of us plus the air conditioner was right next to one of the queen beds.

Very expensive

I know Santa Barbara it's a very expensive place to stay but we got a suit in this hotel, it was noisy, we were not able to sleep and there was a big leak in front of our room, they never told us when we check in. We tried to take a hot shower but they didn't have hot water. I called them and the front desk lady just said I'm sorry. They got me $50.00 back but I paid 279.00 for one night. For 200.00 dollar one night without hot water. Really bad.

It was a very nice place with two floors on the room. We had a nice time but still was in a very expensive weekend for my point of view.

Family trip

The room was clean, the staff nice. Motel has two clean pools, two jacuzzis. Air conditioner was too loud to have on at night. 2 queen room seemed small for two adults 2 kids. Closet was tiny. The restaurant closes early so we missed dinner. Breakfast was basic but good. We would stay again if they have a larger room.

Well-appointed, reasonable room

The room was very clean, included free water and fruit and robes to use. The balcony was a plus, as was the ample louver windows that allowed the breezes to pass through.

ladies week-end

This is a great location only 5 miles from the Wharf area and the vibrant downtown area. Our room was located on the pool with two chairs outside the sliding doors. The staff was great! They even have someone wash all the windshields each morning. The only thing lacking is a continental breakfast, although there is a good restaurant right on the property.

Not bad at all and all money worth

This is not the 5 start hotel so don't expect fancy stuff. However, they have everything you can ask for inn and it's very decent Inn. two swimming pools, exercise room, free fruits and coffee, etc. Only problem is too far from Santa Barbara beach so don't expect that you can walk to the beach.

Convenient but weathered

The hotel was convenient to the freeway and the city, but could use major upgrading if it is to attract customers. The hotel was probably build in the 1950's, has been maintained, but is weathered. The rooms are large, but again things are old and need upgrading.
