We chose this hotel based on the great reviews from others. We were not disappointed. It was a lovely stay in Santa Barbara. The positives are the breakfast, free parking and free WiFi. It is always annoying to pay a large hotel fee and then add to it with the small things. This hotel includes everything in the price and to us that was a huge plus. The location is outstanding. You can walk to most restaurants and the main shopping is only two blocks away. We were in a second floor room overlooking the pool. It was very quiet and we had coffee every morning on the deck outside. The rooms was clean and the bathroom was great. It included a large soaking tub and a separate shower and very clean. The bed was comfortable. There was turn down service every night. The staff was very helpful, pleasant and friendly. And they seemed to genuinely want to help. We loved the breakfast. It was mostly continental but they served a wonderful quiche each morning. There was ice tea and hot tea and coffee available all day.
We would highly recommend this hotel.
