This hotel was very nice. Its garden setting together with its front appeal was the perfect setting for their well kept rooms. Breakfast was sumptuous, 24 hour espresso machine, pool with spa. That said, try it once you visit Santa Barbara.

We stayed here for one night on a mini-vacation to Ventura and Santa Barbara. First, the positives--pleasant and helpful staff, quirky topiary, nice pool and grounds, quiet rooms, and an amazing and varied breakfast (they even had scones and Stash tea). Location was also convenient as the hotel is in walking distance of several restaurants and shopping centers. But honestly,... More

Thank you for taking the time to review our property, I am glad you enjoyed our breakfast and garden area. Unfortunately during the peak season a lot of hotels in the Santa Barbara raise their rates due to supply and demand. I am happy to let you know that we are in the process of renovating our guestrooms and bathrooms,... More

We stayed here many times while our son attended UC Santa Barbara. It became our "base camp" for visiting him as it's just minutes from the UCSB campus. It's also an easy drive to all the sites in very nearby Santa Barbara, but less expensive and quieter than places in Santa Barbara where we stayed a couple of times. Parking... More

Was there in late August with wife and two young grand children. First off, I believe it ia a litle cheaper than a downtown hotel but still easy to get to SB. The grounds were beautiful and very well kept. We had a two room suite which was vey nice...clean and well appointed (and I understand they will soon be... More

The room was somewhat outdated, but other than that we really liked the hotel. Nice pool, hot tub, garden, there is a laundry facility, breakfast is very good, friendly staff. Please note that if you are looking for a central location, this is not the place for you. It is close to the 101, but you need to drive few... More

I'll start with the hotel. Nice pool and hot tub, beds are great, gardens look good, breakfast was good, furthest room only about a 2 minute walk from the lobby, nice gym and I could go on. Very good hotel and I would recommend. But, and it's a big but, the location is far out. I am aware there is... More

We have stayed here several times while visiting UCSB and also as our headquarters for some serious hiking in Santa Barbara. LOVE the breakfast--they have a huge variety of items, including these delicious small omelettes--so good. Beds are super comfortable, hot tub and pool perfect. For my money, this is the BEST hotel along Calle Real. Can't wait to visit... More

This hotel has very comfortable beds, beautiful gardens, beautiful rooms and very accommodating staff. The pool and jacuzzi are warm and in a lovely setting. Shuttle from train and UCSB. Gym and laundry and more cost effective than Santa Barbara. I loved my stay here! The breakfast was better than most continentals.

Hope to see rooms remodeled and modernized to match quality of lobby and eating area. Rooms are small altho quiet and clean; mattress is comfortable; bathroom area is small and dated, and grout on bathroom floor needs to be re-done if remodel does not take place.

A bit on the pricy side, this hotel is close to UC Santa Barbara and only about an 8 minute drive away. The building is very well maintained and seems fairly new. They were in the process of renovating or repairing while we were there as we could hear construction noise, but it didn't interfere with our stay as all... More
