We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at this little treasure right in the middle of all there is to do in Santa Barbara. Our room faced poolside, was enormous, beautifully decorated and modern, with a large bathroom and sitting area. The free continental breakfast was very nice, but there is also the option to eat at the delicious market right across... More

Don't let the front of the building deceive you! The interior of all hotel spaces is completely up to date. The Executive King Room was a great size, super comfy bed, large bathroom, and a larger size fridge. We had a 2nd floor room facing State Street but did not hear any noise. The A/C unit worked well. The pool... More

Lovely refurbished room at the end of State Street so ideal for shopping and the walk to the beach. Good fridge, wifi provided, nice shower room and spacious pool with lots of fresh towels provided. We booked at short notice and got a good rate. Staff were really helpful. Breakfast, which was included, was a great selection to choose from.

Old-style motel, upgraded pool and lobby areas, white and rattan vibe. Super-friendly staff but room was just ok - noisier-than-usual a/c and dark. Breakfast was appalling which means "average" by American hotel standards - we preferred IHOP for waffles, pancakes and scrambles, just 100m up the road.

We booked 2 rooms at this hotel, we had asked for adjoining rooms so when we arrived early to check in they very kindly upgraded one room to ensure we were next to each other and could go straight to our rooms. The rooms themselves were big, spacious, clean and very modern. The pool was kept lovely and clean and... More

We were visiting friends in Santa Barbara and I was looking for an updated place to stay. I read reviews on Trip Advisor and all of them for this hotel were good. I booked for three nights and wasn't disappointed. The room was small but very clean. The bathroom had a huge shower and nice vanity. Everything was updated and... More
