Unfortunately just about every Hotel, Motel and Inn are sky high in Santa Barbara. This hotel was clean, the front staff was friendly and it was reasonably priced. I would definitely stay here again. I stayed here with a youth sports team and the hotel was able to accomidate us. The beakfast was your basic muffins, juice, coffee and tea.

Room was clean and nice sized. Pool area decent. Off the beach but not far from the shopping area. I felt safe, it was quiet, and staff was friendly

We stayed here for one night, the hotel was clean, staff friendly, rooms comfortable and plenty big enough for 3 of us. We stopped in Santa Barbara after a day in the winelands and it was easy to find. I would have preferred a location further along State Street closer to the main shops and restaurants. We took a taxi... More

Everything was perfect, ^particularly the service. However if you really want to improve the hotel you should think of a romm for the breakfast. As a matter of fact, only 4 table in the lobby for the enire hotel cannot make it and we were all packed in the lobby at 9.30 which was a bit unpleasant. I noticed that... More

We landed in this place by accident - our traveling plans got interrupted with our son's high fever. At first I was hesitant - it is a place with windows facing parking lot and rooms accessed from the street. Yet, the little hotel exceeded expectations. The customer service was very welcoming and responsive - unexpectedly high standard of service, rooms... More

This hotel surprised us! Everything was clean, attractive and well kept. The room had enough space for an after graduation get-to-gether for 7 people. We ordered pizza from across the street. The pictures do not do this property justice. The pool and spa area were awesome. The pool temperature was perfect. You can walk to grocery stores, restaurants, and clothing... More

Location is great, near all SB attractions if you have a car. Room is comfy, but not very clean, the air conditioner in our room was covered in dust. Their site tells you they offer fridges in all rooms but our room had no fridge. Breakfast very poor, only coffe, juices and bagels. Finding reasonable priced accomodations in this city... More

Recenly stayed here for one week; in town for a family wedding. We found the rooms to be very clean and comfortable. Blow dryer, iron and board, and room safe were nice to have. Plenty of drawer space. The staff were all friendly (housekeeping graciously handled our requests for things without question). The bed was comfortable. We enjoyed the free... More

We paid £60 for one night so wasn't expecting much, was a little weary from all the negative reviews but I can honestly say there isn't really anything wrong that I could complain about. the room is clean and the bed is comfortable, I am extremely prone to bites when I sleep in hotel beds but I didn't get any...
