Husband and I stayed in Island Vista for a few days in early June. We were able to check in early when we arrived at 1:00 in the afternoon. We had a one bedroom suite on the 12th floor. The room was nice and large, with a big bedroom with two queen beds, good size bathroom and living room/dining room/kitchen combo. Perfect size for two people. There was a murphy bed in the living room (which we didn't use of course) The furniture was in good shape but not modern or up to date at all. The kitchen didn't have much in the way of small appliances or little kitchen gadgets. Just the basics for maybe 4 people. Tiny dishwasher too...I would imagine it would be running non-stop to keep up. We didn't use it, as we ate out every evening...and lunch a few days. Still..it worked for us for the few days we were there. The beds were way too soft though. When we checked out on Saturday morning a huge 18-wheel truck was outside and they were unloading what seemed to be hundreds of new mattresses. Maybe we will get a nice, new firm mattress next time we go there.
Anyway...everyone was very nice and helpful at Island Vista. I was impress with how the maintenance crew and grounds people were constantly working...keeping things running and the grounds super clean. We were able to park on the first or second floor of the parking garage so that wasn't an issue for us even with our SUV. We loved that this hotel sits by itself with no hotels on either side. That makes it so nice and not crowded at all. It's in a nice, quiet, but still convenient residential area..not far from stores, resturants and all the attractions. Perfect location in my opinion.
We had dinner one night in the hotel restaurant the Cypress Room. Great service, great music (wonderful guitarist with a James Taylor-ish voice...very good!!) and the food!! YUM!! (I've written a separate review)
We were very impressed with everything overall and look forward to staying in Island Vista on our next visit.
