I am a new Santa Barbara Forester fan/parent, and was told that Drew Wakefield could help me find lodging when coming up for games....I called him on rather short notice, and he was able to accomodate me at a very competiive price. He went beyond the call of duty, and he and his staff were very helpful and friendly.....I have... More

Don't let the location fool you, it's only a few exits to downtown Santa Barbara or Goleta/UCSB and the price was much lower than staying in the middle of things. The courtyard area has a great lagoon and pool with ducks, koi fish, and is very relaxing. I stayed for business but would highly recommend it for families as well.

Its not the hampton but the rooms are clean and the beds are comfortable. The price is typical for the area. The service is great front desk can give you directions to just about anything you need from food to auto service stations. Don't forget the discounts at local resteraunts that you get for staying.

We had confirmed reservation for a room with "garden view", but when we requested a second floor room rather than a ground floor room, we were given a "mountain view" (parking lot view) room. The room is smaller than what we expected. The refrigerator and microwave is a nice feature. The coffee machine which is on top of the dresser... More

An old hotel from the 70s or 80s that has been fairly well kept. Everything was spotlessly clean and although many of the features seem dated, everything was pretty good. The breakfast was meager, but when isn't continental breakfast disappointing? Conveniently located to the city and university, I would definitely recommend it to anyone traveling this way on business and... More

My wife and I were extremely pleased with all the staff and our accommodations which overlooked the beautiful garden and pool area. It was very tropical feeling---something you don't normally find in a motel setting. The rooms were well appointed, the bed very comfortable, and the continental breakfast had lots of choices. We have stayed in other motels in SB... More

We enjoyed the beautiful lagoon that was right outside of our patio door. The sound of the water fall near by was very relaxing. The entire staff was friendly and accommodating, and made us feel right at home. The room was clean, and our king size bed was very comfortable. I usually don't sleep well in hotels, but slept quite... More

Good location, especially if headed West or North (through the San Marcos Pass); about a 5 minute drive into downtown Santa Barbara on the 101. Very clean. King bed was very comfortable. In room fridge and microwave was handy. I'd have preferred a little table to share breakfast instead of the desk table. Breakfast was very good. I didn't have... More

This hotel was average all round. Decor very 70's like a Columbo set but clean and amenities all working and acceptable. Pool was nice and breakfast standard was reasonable with choices of cereal, pastries, bagels, boiled eggs, juice and coffee. I think it's more decent motel standard. We've stayed in cheaper motel chains in the US which have been same... More
