“Huge!”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 1, 2013

We stayed at this property as it was the closest to Santa Barbara. It is in a really nice location overlooking a golf course. They have tennis courts (5) but for whatever reason, all the nets were down. In any case, this property has over 200 rooms all done in little buildings holding 8 rooms, most of which are studios. All are nice and look recently refurbed. We stayed in room 1124 which is tucked away, overlooking the tennis courts and golf course. The room on first glance looked nice and clean. And for the most part it was. However, my husband used the toilet and it was clogged (and this was prior to his using it). TMI? Maybe but it makes one wonder. Also, the towel bar fell off the minute we took a towel off it. The carpet is in desperate need of cleaning as we walked in our socks and they were black by the evening. Also, no bar soap for either hands or body. Makes one wonder exactly how clean it was and why wasn't it checked? How can a housekeeper miss a clogged toilet if she cleaned it and why wasn't the broken towel rack reported to maintenance? However on the plus side, the toilet was fixed quickly but we never did get soap! Also, the hot water is VERY hot and the cold water is VERY cold so be careful.
On the plus side, the hearth room where they sefve breakfast is big enough for the number of rooms. I mention this because in the majority of Residence Inns we stay at, this is not the case. Ususally the breakfast area looks like an afterthought. Also, the location is nice. We are planning on returning and hope the rooms are cleaners and better maintained.

I have never stayed in a Residence Inn before. It was like our own little condo. There was a huge variety for breakfast with waffles, cereal, eggs, potatoes, pastries, and sausage. I would definitely stay there again!

We partly picked this hotel because it was advertised as having a full kitchen. We were disappointed to find no oven. Just a cook-top and microwave. The garbage disposal was broken, when we tried to call the front desk the phone would just ring with no answer. We called with our cell phone and they answered right away. They promptly sent out someone and as soon as he came in the door he started blaming us. We had by this time already cooked our dinner and so there was a bit of food from our plates in the sink in the water that wouldn't drain. He said you can't put vegetable down there it won't chop them, say what, soft cooked vegetables and it was just bits left from our plates. He fixed it but was rude and made us feel like jerks. The doors are loud and stick. We couldn't even open one of the closet doors. Otherwise the place was clean. We were given a room in the back far from the parking. Which surprised us since we had asked for a first floor room, saying we had trouble walking. The best part of our stay was the breakfast buffet, with lots of choices and keep clean and stocked. Will not stay here again.

Fine room, quiet location, great breakfast. Room was huge with fireplace. Only problem we had was herd of elephants above us. Go for the second floor if you want quiet. Hot breakfast was very good, even had real eggs. Great value in December, might be pricey in summer. Adjacent to golf course and a few miles from the beach. Trees full of birds.

We visit Santa Barbara every year and trying to find a dog friendly hotel at the right price is impossible. We found the hotel to be perfect for us. Great room, friendly staff, great food and just a short 20 minute ride to the Santa Barbara Polo club.. Plus there is plenty of shopping and restaurants near by.

I would recommend if you are in Oxnard you stay here. They have a golf course, offer free breakfast, have kitchens, and the penthouses are very cozy. The service is great. Last time we were there we were upgraded to a penthouse for free they were really nice about, of course we stay they every time we are out that way. Would suggest you stay here

We took our new LBD (little black dog) to this awesome Inn. This place boasts a full breakfast, golf course views and is pet-friendly! Parking was close to our room, and breakfast was amazing. We sat out on the patio with our LBD and enjoyed a hot breakfast and coffee along with the gorgeous view. The town and beach are close enough for a nice walk.

The room was clean, and the bed was comfy. We had a fireplace (not used) and a full mini-kitchen. The price was very reasonable with our AAA discount. This was truly a hidden gem!

Room Tip: Use the AAA discount if you have it--less than $100 per night!
