Great room, spacious with beautiful ocean view. Great location, across from the beach, and the delicious restaurant below was a plus.

Great all around and beautiful property.

Beautiful rooms

Beautiful hotel and the staff were very friendly! The location of the property is perfect!

I always stay here when passing through. Beautiful location next to beach and park. As always, very professional and friendly staff. So great to have Convivo restaurant right downstairs. I dine here every time! Thanks again for all the personal service.

I loved the heated floors in the restroom. The terrace was cute. Very beautiful! The rob and complementary slippers are a plus.

Only little hiccup was that they didn’t have our bags waiting in our room for us even though they knew it was our wedding night and the bags had been dropped off that morning. The gentleman checking us in didn’t know where our bags were so we had to go to the room, discover they weren’t there, then come back down and get them. Not the end of the world but not the service we expected at this price point.

When we checked in I think the staff should have let us know that coffee was in the lobby, since there were no coffee pots in the room.

Outdated rooms. No service after 10pm. No

This is my go to spot for ending a long day's drive. Beautifully located on the ocean, with a board walk, easy parking and best of all a divine restaurant right in the hotel.. obviously a local favorite. All rooms have nice balconies. I usually get an ocean view room to enjoy the sunset.

Great access to beach across the street, beautiful on-property restaurant, and attentive staff make this a nice spot in Santa Barbara!

It was a beautiful property! The view and location was great and convenient and allowed us to walk to a nearby market or to the beach. The staff and extremely friendly and responsive to any request. We would definitely return.

Clean and contact less checkin, excellent location, great on site restaurant with outdoor dining. rooms have balconies and views....

Great location, valet team and virtual concierge staff. Room was comfortable with heated bathroom floors! We'll be back.

Nice hotel just across the street from the East Beach. The rooms have been updated, but common areas look a little dated. You can park across the street for free to avoid paying for valet parking.

We stayed in an ocean view room and it was absolutely beautiful. It was our anniversary and we’re really tired of being cooped up in the house for two months, so going to Santa Barbara was a great way to get refreshed. The beach is open, so we just had to walk across the street to hang out there - and you can lounge on the beach, unlike LA county. The hotel was great because they had room service for lunch dinner, and for breakfast they gave you yogurts, muffins, and fruit if you went to the front desk to ask for it. The hotel overall was absolutely beautiful and very clean. Definitely recommend it!

Property was very elegant. The staff were very friendly. Check in and out was very easy.
