“Great Value and Charming Courtyard and Pool Area”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 6, 2013

What a value! Santa Barbara is an expensive city so to find a place like this for a reasonable rate was a pleasant surprise. I had a King room facing the landscaped courtyard and pool area. This area was beautiful. It was very large and lush. There was also a large duck pond and it was occupied by healthy and happy ducks. It was so relaxing to sit on my patio and take in the fresh air .
I am a solo traveler so security is top on my priority list. I felt very safe and secure here. Access to the rooms was limited and required a card which also was your room key.
Great continental breakfast with both warm and hot items.
All of the staff were smiling, happy and polite. They provided great information about surfing and beach areas very close to the hotel.
I enjoyed this a as destination for a solo traveler and I know families would also love it here. Close to attractions and lots to do and enjoy.

Room Tip: Ask for a room that faces the beautiful courtyard and pool area.
