Beware. I paid in full and got a call earlier today demanding that I pay $11 additional and when I queried them on what the charge was, they were unable to say. Don’t stay here and definitely don’t trust them. The property is nice and it has some cool amenities but they are straight up trying to steal from me.

Very disappointing experience. First, this is not a "Hotel". It's a re-done Motel. It's in a somewhat sketchy part of town just off State St. Lots of noice, police, homeless and random strangers to confront you on the street. You don't want to be walking back to your room late at night. Room was very ordinary - nothing special. Nickel and dime on costs. Very overpriced for what it was. I've been to Santa Barbara many times and there are lots of better places to stay.

It's walking distance to state st. and the pet friendly hotel makes it even better.

They've turned an older motel into a fun, relaxing, and modern respite in a wonderful part of Santa Barbara. It's location is fantastic for walking and the beach.

Friendly and knowledgeable staff; location was phenomenal - central to beach, wine tasting, restaurants, and transit connections

Very charming hotel with great staff nnnnnnnnnnnnnnn

Great location great staff. Very nice rooms. Free parking.

Great location, friendly staff, room was perfect, no issues. Also, they had some promotional passes to local businesses for food and beverage, which was definitely a bonus! Check out the Cruisery, cool spot!

Walls were paper thin, could here everything next door. Heater took hours to work. Staff was wonderful. Location was great. Room was great. Thanks

Pictures online portray a more sleek image of the hotel than reality. This is an old motel that had a fresh coat of paint slapped on, but the rooms still feel a bit dingy and bleak. The wood floors in our room were termite bitten and cracking under our feet. We stayed in November and, though the room had a small wall heater, we were freezing. Hotel Haley is going for a trendy, casual vibe but the execution isn't quite right.

I'll start by saying that the hotel staff was wonderful, friendly, knowledgeable and very accommodating, but we were very surprised to find that the room had no closet or dresser, so we had nowhere to put our clothes. Also, there was a motion sensing night light in the room which was so sensitive that it would turn on every time I rolled over in bed. There was another motion sensing switch in the bathroom, and it was worse....3 light bulbs and the fan were hooked into the motion sensor, so if you got up to use the bathroom in the middle of the night, all of them, plus the fan, would turn on. I mentioned it to the staff that the lights in the bathroom were too bright to be hooked to the motion sensor, and they explained that it was a state law...but they could probably use a much less bright night light to satisfy the rule. Otherwise, the location was perfect...walking distance to everything!!

Hello Kurt, I apologize you felt this way, this was not our intention. There was an unpaid balance for parking that you were contacted for, we will go ahead and waive this for you. We hope you return to the Haley Hotel. Thank you

Hello Rob, It is unfortunate the Haley Hotel was not up to your expectation, we hope we can make up for it in the future. We are located half a block away from the downtown area and a 5 min walk to the beach some might say it is the perfect location. We offer outdoor areas for our guest and a dog run for our fur friends, our rooms are all different in their own way, a touch of the Santa Barbara style I would say. We would like to invite you back and offer a free 2 hr bike ride. We appreciate your feedback!
