The location is close to UCSB and few miles from the Santa Barbara Harbor. Price is also affordable

Great parking- nice sized rooms with fridge Should NOT have to go to desk to get a glass

Our first room smelled very strongly of weed. We had to asked to be moved, and the woman working the front desk was very kind and switched our rooms. We were moved to another room that also had a unique smell, but it was bearable. The kitchen was old and just like the bathroom, it could have used a deep clean. There was hair and leftover items from past residents in the drawers. The TV was great & there was lots of good channels for entertainment. Checking in and out was very easy and the location near the freeway was nice (about 8 min. drive to State St.). I wouldn't stay here again, but it served it's purpose for the price (very inexpensive for the area). We had no issues with noise or other guests.

the staff at the property were great! the hotel had a funky smell in certain areas the room was never cleaned, I had expressed to the hotel that we wanted our towels and linen cleaned (like any other hotel) however the hotel said they didnt note this down breakfast was just muffins, oatmeal, and granola bars + coffee. very simple but still better than nothing amenities very bare. no pool/tub and no gym

Don’t come here for vacation purposes. Bed is not comfortable and pillows are very light. The room was cleaned and smelled ok but it was outdated. You come to Santa Barbara to enjoy spend little more. You will not enjoy it.

It's not disgusting, but it is neither clean nor comfortable.

It was all right for the price. Good location. Didn’t like that their was no pressure in the shiwer

It was close to baseball fields for tournament and within walking distance of two eating establishments.

The shower/tub didn’t drain! The worst shower I’ve ever taken thank goodness it was for only one night!

The best part about this place was that it is quiet and has a very good staff. The room appeared clean, the towels were fresh but under the thin bed sheet there were several hairs on the mattress pad that were not mine because I had not used the bed yet. The complimentary breakfast was NO breakfast unless you are into gas station mini mart packaged muffins and granola bars. The shower head wasn't too strong and the water had a softener in it which was good for soft hair and skin but it seemed scented. The whole room seemed to leave a scent on my clothes. Not a bad smell but I prefer to breath unscented air.

A lot of litter in parking lot, could have been do to windy conditions. Trees and schrubs are very nicely taken care of

I like the cleanness. Microwave and cooktop are my favorite.

I like the location. I didn’t like that my room was not cleaned daily.

I have never encountered hotel staff that was so unprofessional, rude and in fact threatening. The hotel allows dogs and one of the dog owners left its dog unattended while the rest of the guests had to listen to the dog barking non-stop for hours. When I asked the receptionist, Sam, late in the evening (we couldn’t fall asleep due to the barking) to assist with this issue given that the dog was clearly distressed and guests were fed up with constant barking, he started yelling at me and insulting me. The most unpleasant hotel experience of my life! If you want to enjoy your time in Santa Barbara, this is not a hotel for you.

Looka ok from outside but inside was terrible. Very dirty and smelly carfet. My room’s shower tab was broken so I had to pour the water from bath with ice jar.....

Air conditioner is loud. Refrigerator is loud. Breakfast is just a snack. Bed sheet and cover not changed since last customer. Hotel personal give new sheet and cover to me and refund $20 for the inconvenience.
