We really enjoyed our stay here - the room was lovely - but the bathroom was amazing! Great balcony and the beds are wonderful.
Breakfast in the restaurant is a must - and as a Mum I really appreciate the kids menu - really high stand of choice and the meals are beautifully presented (not always the case with childrens meals)
The location is perfect - beachfront, and an easy walk to State St where all the stores are - fabulous shopping to be had!
The only downside (and not the hotel's fault) is all the homeless people in State Street - it's unbelievable.
Some just keep to themselves, some call out , some follow you and others are just abusive. I saw an older couple get verbally abused by a young feral type girl - it was quite distressing. As we were travelling with our 2 young daughters, I guess I was hyper aware of this - and also not being from the US, I think I notice it more. Sadly I think it changed my opinion of Santa Barbara - not sure I'd hurry back.
