lovely rooms surrounding a little pond with ducks, very peaceful. Each room on the inside had a balcony overlooking the pond. I had a suite and the rest of my family had regular rooms and the suite was quite comfortable for the entire family to assemble in. It had a balcony with table and umbrella. The staff was great.
Only negative comment is that the breakfast was mediocre. The citrus fruit was terrible. I suspect it was canned or something but certainly NOT up to Santa Barbara standards. The bananas were bananas...not much that can be done to ruin them. Yogurt was only one kind. They could have mixed regular with lofat...but as there was a House of Pancakes across the street, I guess they didn't want to compete.
Overall the location was great, the ambiance with the water and ducks could not have been better. The office staff was knowledgeable and welcoming.
Good job! I hope to be able to plan another trip there.
