There's graffiti on the furniture, there were a whole bunch of drunk guys hanging out on the balcony upstairs when we got back from dinner, the bathroom is full of rusty bits, and from the sounds of the doors opening and closing, cars leaving regularly, and... other noises, we strongly suspect there's a hooker operation going on upstairs. Really really... More

My husband and I booked a room and the photos shown on the website are definitely not what you get. There was a washer and dryer outside by our room. The broken down ice machine was right next to the trash bin and who knows what lerks in there. There are no blankets on the bed only sheets. The lock... More

We do NOT recommend this motel. We stayed one night. Our 32-year-old, five-months-pregnant daughter was with us and was bitten by at least two bed bugs. This is a more run-down property that the photos and description online would suggest. There is no elevator to 2nd floor rooms. No pool. No amenities to justify $150/night price. There WAS a small...

One night stay. We arrived to be given an excellent welcome by the receptionist who throughout our stay provided us with advice and support. This level of involvement is what one would expect all hotels/motels to provide. The location was good, but some distance fro the harbour. The surroundings were pleasant but the large waste bins needed emptying as they... More

Non Smoking Rooms smell like smoke. The outside was dirty and smelled awful. Looks as if they don't have a gardener. A real dump for what your paying. It is located in a nice area, but really needs to put some effort into cleaning it up. Seems like the owners don't really care.

We were hesitant to stay at the Hacienda last fall based on the rating, but our son's extra bed was unavailable and it was the weekend of the Santa Barbara Marathon so nothing was available at a reasonable cost. After reading some more recent reviews on another site we booked a room at the Hacienda, and were pleasantly surprised. We... More

We were awakened at 3:30am by loud, gunfire/firework sounds. Our room happened to be adjacent to a boiler room that housed 3 large hot water heaters. It seems that one of the heaters was malfunctioning and spouted-off for hours in the middle of the night. When I talked to the clerk, he acted as though he did not know what... More

I discovered the Hacienda back in 2006, and they just get better and better. They are family-owned, so you get more for the money than with a chain. I like the fridge and microwave, because Whole Foods is a half-block away (plus 2 other grocery stores, Peet's Coffee, Macy's and Ross in the area). I can fill up the fridge... More

Room needs upgrading overstuffed chair is dirty furniture is outdated. Refridgerator never is pulled out and cleaned around the area. Just odds and end of furniture. WiFi didn't work for me and when I got home my WiFi was just fine. This room for the price is too much for the look of the room. I won't be staying there... More

My daughter and I stayed one night in a somewhat small room with two queen beds. We checked in at almost 11 pm (family matters took up most of the day) after picking up food at Taco Bell. OK room, not nearly as large as the one we stayed in the night before (Parkside Inn) for the same price ($123... More
