“It used to be better”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 22, 2013

This was my fourth stay, not the best. I need to warm the room but the A/C equipment makes a lot of noise and does allow to a good sleep.
The bathroom was not cleaned two days out of 4 of my stay and the hair dryer was not working.
In general my bad feeling is regarding what I was expecting since in previous opportunities did not have this kind of problems; I have to say I do not remember if I tray to use the A/C before but for sure the bathroom was clean every day since this is one of my main requirements to go back to a hotel.

Dear Olga Lucia C,

We are sorry that your fourth time was not a charm and will look into the noise of the AC and the cleaning of the room. We sure hope you will give us another try in the future since this is not up to our standards of operation. We care about our hotel and the guests that choose to stay with us and will do everything possible to fix these issues for you and any other prospective guests.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 7, 2013

We only stayed one night because we were visiting friends in Goleta. The hotel staff was very friendly as we made reservations directly with them. We had a gift certificate for one night in a garden suite, and there was no problem redeeming it. We had a pool side view set in a garden area. Although we didn't use the pool, it was larger than most. Breakfast was fine--except the door didn't automatically close, and it happened to be a cold morning. This is right off the freeway. We found it quiet. If you want to stay in the city, this isn't for you.

Room Tip: There is no elevator to the second floor.

Dear Adrizin,

Thank you for mentioning how friendly our staff was to you and your family during your stay with us. It is our goal to always offer VIP Service to all of our guests, and it sounds like we did just that. It sounds like you were able stay in one of our Superior Gardenside guest rooms which over look our lush gardens and freshwater lagoons with the Ducks, Turtles, Koi, Goldfish, and Sticks the Egret.

Hopefully when you return to beautiful Santa Barbara, you will choose to stay with us again.
