Terrible. Old, needs renovation. Allows dogs but does not do a deep clean after. Carpets smelled, rooms were musty. My son and I both attempted staying there, we tried 3 rooms between us. They all smelled. I asked for a refund with calls, email and speaking to the front desk on my way out. Nothing from the manger, no response. For the same price I went to the Hyatt at State ST, that also allows dogs, had a new, sparkling clean room. Terrible customer service experience.

We had a great visit. The room was clean. While we knew there would not be air conditioning, there was a large fan in the closet that was sufficient to keep us cool, along with the ceiling fan. We had no problems reserving the pool when we wanted (1 family at a time). Front desk staff was super friendly and helpful. Breakfast was simple but is better than nothing. Location was great - close to beach, walking distance to the zoo. No elevator, so plan accordingly. No great restaurants in walking distance (a Mexican Food Truck, Habit Burgers, and a couple of fancier hotel restaurants that were booked at dinner time.) Hotel seemed full — you would not know there is a pandemic going on, but a very pleasant stay!

There were many nice things about this hotel. It was very clean and they take their COVID protocols very seriously. I appreciated that they still made breakfast available. Yes, everything was prepackaged, but many other hotels simply cancelled their breakfast completely. The free bike rentals were great. We rode around for nearly 4 hours--a really great way to see Santa Barbara. Everyone is very nice and service was efficient. However, 2 problems kept me from giving this hotel a higher rating. The beds were awful. They were very soft, and anytime the other person moved even slightly, you would feel it and be woken up. The internet service was extremely unreliable. It would work for a minute and go out for a couple of minutes, then work another minute or two before failing again. Very frustrating.

Excellent location, quiet & friendly staff. Reasonably priced for Santa Barbara. Clean room. Would have preferred a standard coffee maker opposed to a single cup Kuerig. Comfortable bed. No air conditioning, room was stuffy in the afternoon.
