The room was very clean and comfortable. I had a single room with a double bed. I thought the bed was comfortable and it came with the typical coffee maker blow dryer, etc... The plus was a mini fridge. The lobby is very nice. The staff were young and friendly. The grounds were immaculate and the landscaping was something to... More

There is not much options in the CIty it self. But we enjoyed our short trip in the CIty by staying in this hotel. The staffs were professional and the room were clean. Yes, the garden were well kept too.

I visit this hotel about once a year for a College Water Polo tournament and stay here because it is the hotel of choice by the coach. In the past I dreaded staying in the worn out rooms. However, upon arriving I was pleasantly surprised with a remodel. The rooms are modern, up to date and very nicely decorated. The... More

The beds are very comfortable, the shower is fantastic. The couch is comfortable. The rooms are very clean. It is a great value for your stay... More

I really appreciated the festive way the lobby was decorated for Christmas - very inviting to put wrapped presents under the tree and drink some hot cocoa while waiting for Santa to appear. Very good breakfast and the bed was super comfortable. Will stay here very time I have to go to Santa Barbara.

Attractive exterior upon our arrival. Friendly, organized staff for check in. Offered a choice of rooms/bed sizes. I was initially concerned that the road noise would be an issue, but the way the buildings are set, it wasn't noticeable. One of the buildings was under construction, but no work took place in the evening or early in the morning so... More
