Great location for UCSB parents who want to be close to campus, but otherwise the area has absolutely niothing to offer. Basically in the middle of a nowhere gas station stop off freeway. BGetter off driving a few miles from Santa Barbara proper and having activities, restaurants, etc nearby.

We chose this hotel purely because it was just off Highway One and was about halfway on our road trip. The price was very good and although the view from the room wasn't great - we just needed somewhere to sleep. The room was very clean, bed fantastically comfortable and clean and a great shower. The staff were friendly and... More

Our stay here shows how little decisions by the staff can make a big difference in a guest's experience. Ours could have been terrific, but was just ok. The hotel is 6 miles outside of Santa Barbara, but an easy drive to the center of town, and convenient to the highway. To be fair, the hotel does a lot of... More

I stayed here for two nights before going on to Los Angeles. I wish I could have stayed longer. This hotel is certainly NOT overrated. It's in the middle of town, with a lagoon! How perfect is that?? Easy to find, right off the freeway. A restaurant right next door. There is a lagoon! All of the staff we encountered... More

You will enjoy your patio overlooking the lagoon and garden area and of course the ducks with hats! Room was comfortable and breakfast in the morning was very nice. Pool and hot tub were very enticing but alas we didnt have enough time to enjoy~
