We chose the hotel because it was reasonably priced and seemed to be in a good location for going to the Granada Theatre (for a concert) and enjoying State Street and the many stores and restaurants along the street. From the outside, the hotel looks fairly old, but it has been not only well maintained over the years, but seems... More

This is a very easy friendly hotel in the middle of everything. My wife and I try to get away for 4 or 5 days every few months so somewhere within driving distance of our home. This hotel is in downtown Santa Barbara, and close to almost everything--with a Starbucks just a few minutes walk down State Street, the pier... More

Stayed here for two nights. You can tell the property has been newly renovated but there are things that could be changed. Firstly don't be fooled by the old motel style building & corridors, it's actually really well decorated. The one big down side to the rooms though are the sliding glass doors to the bathroom....why aren't these solid, with... More

Stayed here for a week-end getaway with family members. My sister took care of reservations and I was ready to be disappointed when I saw the building as it looked old. Upon entering the lobby though, I was surprised to see it was modern and sparkling clean. The staffs were friendly and accommodating. I was even more surprised when we... More

We loved Santa Barbara and this hotel. They offer free parking, breakfast and WIFI in the rates which makes a nice change in California. State street is where its all going on in terms of bars, restaurants and shops. This hotel is near the top of State street so perfect to walk all the way down to the ocean front... More

Everything was great! There was some noise due to construction but it was not that bothersome. At one point during our stay, Management stopped the construction so that we could have our awards ceremony and it worked out wonderfully. Christina at check out was very detailed and a customer service pro. Kudos to your team!!

Very well located hotel with Mid-Century vibe and a recent remodel. Definitely not your average La Quinta. Nice room appointments including a fridge and gourmet coffee maker, and a bed and linens that you would expect from a pricier spot. There was an issue with the room, and we received a prompt response from the manager and then a follow-up... More

My daughter and I are staying two nights. The room is on the small side but nicely furnished with modern amenities. Its also conveniently located. About 2 blocks from downtown and near a trolly shuttle stop that takes you all the way to pier for 50 cents per person. By far the best deal in town! The front desk (evening)... More

After staying with this same brand hotel earlier this summer, we felt it wasn't a big risk to book the hotel to attend a conference. The location was quite good and had free parking, which is a huge advantage in California. Wifi is included, which is sometimes hard to find in a tourist area. Many hotels and every conference venue... More
