Took a last minute spontaneous trip to Santa Barbara. I thought I got a good deal on Expedia.com till I arrived there. The parking was extra $18, plus $12 mandatory resort fee: still have no clue why that price is billed for breakfast and the other facilities in the hotel. Why don't they simply charge everything from the beginning? Not quite happy with such business model.
Plus, I've never seen a hotel which offers so many booze, wine, gadgets, nuts, and water for sale in your room. You literally have a small convenience/liquor store next to your bed. This might be fantastic if you are stuck in the middle of nowhere hotel during winter snow storm. But, in Santa Barbara...right next to Ocean?
Rooms are a bit out dated, but they have certain boutique hotel feeling. Overall it's a decent place, but I am not quite sure whether I would stay there again.
