We stayed here for two nights. Our room was upgraded as it was a special birthday, we were also greeted with a bottle of champagne, box of chocolates and a happy birthday banner which was a lovely touch. (Thank you Josh)

On check in we were greeted by a handsome, polite and helpful gentleman as our room wasn't ready (our fault we were very early) gave us directions, map etc. to go into town.

Every time we went into reception we were greeted by friendly and helpful staff.

Thank you for making our stay so good.

This hotel is one of our favourites on the Pacific Highway Coast. It's a friendly, clean and very accommodating place. The rooms are of a good size and the one we had this time opened straight onto the pool and hot tub area. All rooms have complimentary water, coffee, fruit and sweets as does the reception area. It's location, on State Street, is good if you are doing a drive holiday, and it's only a short drive into main centre of Santa Barbara which is also well worth a visit. It has a small restaurant attached to it which is ok if you don't fancy venturing outside of the complex, but since there is a multitude of restaurants and eating places in Santa Barbara centre, we'd recommend you only use this as a last resort.

Although not in a particularly nice location, the staff and the facilities were excellent, especially the room.
Nice little pool and spa outside the patio doors and an excellent restaurant next door. Friendly staff and the car windscreen had been cleaned when we left in the morning - would definitely recommend it!

Hotel is nice with fairly big rooms and a lovely courtyard with a swimming pool. The rooms have wifi, a big tv, microwave, fridge, tv and coffee making facilities with free water and fruit in the room too. The beds are very big and lovely and comfy. The house keeping staff need a big well done too as its spotless every where. The hotel also has a gym and laundry room. The staff are so helpful and polite, especially Cindy. I would recommend requesting a courtyard and pool view these are the best rooms. The only bad thing is the location it is quite far from Santa Barbara Beach and the main shops. It is lovely by the beach and at the bottom of state street there are so many nice restaurants and shops its such a shame this is too far out to walk too.

The room was fine for the rate. The hotel certainly has some age, but the interiors seemed to be updated. Nothing fancy, but you'll want to be sightseeing anyways. The location is fairly close to the downtown area. Very clean and the staff was excellent.

Clean rooms. Very small room. Not much room for suitcases. Friendly, helpful staff. High priced for type of room. Nice grounds and pool. Kids were having fun in pool. Restaurant next door. Beds were OK. Needs updating. But fruit in room and water were a nice touch.

A lovely place to stay for a one night stay in Santa Barbara. Very comfortable hotel with a lovely pool area surrounded by nice lawn. Watched Hummingbirds visiting the lovely flowers as we sat by the pool. Rooms are very comfortable and the hotel although a little way out of time is handy for visiting the mission. Breakfast was very nice with a wide variety of options from simple toast to big meals to start the day.
