This was our first stay at this hotel. We visit SB often (almost monthly). We use our car while there so we always stay away from the beach, shopping...so we can afford to buy good wine on our trips:)
This hotel was clean, spacious, very accommodating. Parking was fine, check in/out quick and friendly. Fruit/candy in the room. Nice shampoo/etc.
We ate at the restaurant across the parking lot for breakfast...I didn't care for the service or the food. If we stay at this hotel again we won't eat at the on site restaurant....although I love the outdoor aviary...beautiful, clean...I'm partial to zebra finches so I enjoyed watching them.
Nice pool, jacuzzi although we didn't use...
Oh..although we were extremely happy with our stay...request to not stay in 236..under stairs and is quite noisy with late check ins and early check outs..lots of banging suitcases and stomping throughout the night...
