This is a surprisingly pleasant motel. About a 10 minute drive to the Univ of CA in Santa Barbara campus and the beach. The room was clean, spacious and quiet. It opens to an outdoor hallway, but Santa Barbara weather is always nice. The gardens are well kept and offered a relaxed seating area to enjoy the free breakfast included... More

The gardens are beautiful, the rooms clean, the staff very nice. I had stayed here about 2 yrs. ago for 4 days. This time I stayed 10 days. I felt so rested & relaxed when I left. Breakfast got a bit boring for 9 days it was always the same thing.

we had a nice clean room with 2 queen beds. The area was quiet and we slept well. The lobby was nice, clean, and spacious. We played Ping Pong out by the pool and also enjoyed swimming in the pool. The surrounding landscaping was nice too.

Hotel was very good overall, however internet service is an issue and bacon is too salty Close to Goleta and eating establishments. Also freeway close. Rooms are cramped however especially with 2 beds.

Pleasant garden area, very lovely breakfast area. Quiet and good rooms. Staff show concern about the place. Easy parking and easy to find. Good beds and areas well kept. Excellent hot tub area and pool.

We frequently visit this hotel when visiting our son at UCSB. The staff are very friendly and we always receive good service . The breakfast is ok, but there are lots of food options within walking distance of the hotel. The rooms are dated, but clean and the beds are comfortable. It is a good value for the area.

We tied up here on the first night of a week-long road trip winter vacation in California. We’d pre-booked via Hotwire but even so the cost was a surprisingly high $162.61 for the night. We thought that was a little steep. However, the property was a convenient distance for a first night stop from our starting point at LAX. The... More

This is a very nice hotel and decently priced for the area. The staff is very friendly and efficient. The grounds are nicely kept and the rooms are clean. The furnishings could use an update but the bed was comfortable. We didn't have a great breakfast experience, not enough seating, cold eggs...the food offerings are spread all around the perimeter...
