We stayed here for 5 days in May for our babymoon, in a wonderful luxury deluxe suite, thanks to an upgrade from the manager Jim. We got a good rate on a travelzoo special. The room and service were wonderful. We enjoyed having the continental breakfast delivered to our room many days at no additional cost, and the valet parking was very convenient, especially as I was on activity restriction in my pregnancy. We enjoyed the feeling of pampered luxury these services added to our stay, and of course our room was a treat- 2 TV's, fireplace viewable from bedroom and living room, huge marble bathroom with whirlpool tub. Very comfortable bed. The pool was heated to the absolute perfect temperature. My husband enjoyed the gym. The location was great with several good restaurants within easy walking distance, we especially liked the Montecito Grill in the hotel and a nice mexican restaurant across the street. It was an easy drive to Santa Barbara proper, and we enjoyed the quiet relaxed atmosphere in Montecito. Some friends stayed in a standard room for a couple days of our stay and they enjoyed their stay as well. The continental breakfast is served in the Montecito grill, and we joined them there while they were staying at the hotel. Not a huge a selection but more than adequate, with nice quality bakery pastries, bananas, cereal and milk, juice, coffee and tea, bagels and cream cheese, etc... We would definitely stay here again.
