Staff is nice. Rooms are clean. Facilities are clean. Breakfast was great. If you want to enjoy time with your friends and family, go here! When we had some silly requests, they absolutely made sure to take care of them.

I have been a fan of Hampton Hotels, but not this one. I am disappointed at the quality of the service and the rooms. We barely got any rest during our four-night stay because the air conditioner rattled and moaned all night. The area around the hotel is industrial/fast food; not a place to wander around and see the sights.... More

This is a standard Hampton Inn, located close to UCSB. The breakfast is the standard crap of these places. The rest is functional. Some rooms are really big but there is quite a bit of variation. Decent.

This property is a Hampton Inn-branded hotel, and so if you have been to one of those you know what you should expect to find here (including the possibility of making your own tasty waffles at breakfast, hehe).

Staff and hotel accommodations very nice. Remodel very nice. The only issue, I had requested a roll away and extra pillows before arrival but then had to ask for it several times after arrival. Too pricey.

They charged $399 per night. A Hampton isn't worth that, regardless of location. For that much, it needs to be more than a Hampton. I got gouged. They feel content taking advantage of loyal customers. Not a good thing.

We stayed here for college orientation for my son. It was easy to find. Rooms were clean and quiet. The hot breakfast is nice when you are in a hurry in the morning. In an older part of town, so a car is necessary to get to Santa Barbara and some of the nicer restaurants. We will stay here again... More

Took my daughter for UCSB freshman orientation. Location was great. Around 3 minutes from school. Variety of foods for breakfast. Rooms were clean and beds were comfortable. Suggest staying in the rooms facing toward the pool.

We had a pleasant stay. The minor things we experienced was be internet let cutting out, there were no towels available at the pool and there was only one waffle maker at breakfast so there was a long wait for to make waffles. Other than that the staff was friendly and the facility is nice and sclean
