“Clean and pretty hotel”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 8, 2013

We stayed at this hotel for a business meeting and it is a very attractive older hotel with pretty landscaping, and nice patios. it is just across the street from shopping and not far from down town. The room was a clean, nice size with great bedding and comfortable beds. I'd stay here again.

Hotel is conviently located nearby shops and restaurants. The hotel itself has a nice layout, with a swimming pool and hot tub. The room was a decent size with complimentary biscuits and hot drinks. Unfortunately our room was on the ground floor, next to a room where building work was taking place. The builders had an electric saw right outside our window, and where drilling and banging next door from around 7:30am. I would have expected the hotel to let us know this was the case so that we knew what to expect, or changed our room to a quieter part of the hotel. There was a lot of parking, and complimentary tea and coffee at reception which was good.

I booked this hotel for business associates and they said the hotel is cute, clean, attention to detail for your every need and staff is very attentive. Easy access off 101 and no traffic noise. The hotel itself is an old Spanish style. The grounds are large and very well kept. Two pools and two hot tubs. Only a 10 minute drive to downtown.

Room Tip: Standard King Room was nice for a discounted price! Ask for a room facing the mountains or pool.

Just stayed 1 night, had a bunch of kids with us we had a perfect room with the patio right In the grass and pool. The kids got to run around and jump in the pool. Rooms were neat and pet friendly, had 2 pools wasn't very crowded and restaurants near by within walking distance, about 10 min from state street and beach.

Front desk gentleman was very nice, offered wine, and gave us a room with a great view. The hotel is close to attractions and restaurants. The cold springs trail is close by and is a wonderful place to hike. Will definitely come back to this hotel.

This is our third time at this hotel . we like the easy access off 101 and that it has no traffic noise .
The hotel is old style Spanish two story with no elevators . The rooms are very clean , lots of towels , new TV with the latest movie channels and a quiet fridge , don't you hate the growling sound of an overworked fridge when you are tired . the grounds are large and nicely landscaped , with 2 pools and two hot tubs , ice machines are beside the pool . There are three buildings . our choice is the garden view interior buildings on the second floor. All rooms have a covered balcony . There is a Restaurant on site that is ok for breakfast and lunch , the menu was too small for dinner . Down town is only 10 minutes along State street and at the waterfront on the right is tourist info .We were there 3 days and staff treated us well and were very knowledgeable about the area and the sights of Santa Barbara .

Stayed here for one night as part of our honeymoon. This is a small property and the room decor is outdated however it does have everything you could need for a short stay. we were given a room with a pool view which was nice, we had stayed in some big & pricey hotels in the week before staying here & it was the only hotel who had a welcoming bottle of champagne waiting in the room for us. We had a car which was needed as the main shopping street with restaurants etc is a bit of a distance away from the hotel.
