“Charlotte's Birthday Celebration”
Reviewed 23 December 2013

We arrived early and were given the courtesy of early check-in.

We expected the complimentary breakfast to be danish, juice and coffee. We were pleasantly surprised that it consisted of a full prepared-to-order hot breakfast.

When we returned to our room at the end of the day I was delighted to find chocolates and a complimentary bottle of wine in honor of my birthday. The staff was extremely helpful in assisting us with directions and recommendations to local attractions and restaurants.

This is a very nice property in Santa Barbara with friendly staff. The price of the room was very reasonable to start off, and even more so when you consider that a free breakfast was included for both myself and my wife. I would definitely return again.

We stayed here while my son was attending a program at UCSB. The hotel is no more that 10 minutes from campus, so it is really convenient if you are in town for something having to do with the university. The room was clean and extremely comfortable. The cook to order breakfast was fine and the front desk staff extremely friendly and helpful. I highly recommend this hotel if you need to be near the university. It's about a 15-20 minute drive to downtown Santa Barbara, but it's very easy on and off the freeway.

I actually love this Hotel. The value is amazing - complimentary cooked-to-order breakfast, spacious suites, comfy beds. The property is amazing with the Historic Home and beautiful gardens. Quiet, peaceful and completely secure. One of the best places for Business Travel.

The grounds of this place are really sweet! Tucked away in some trees, the exterior of the building is actually quite pretty! Check in was simple. I don't know if there were elevators somewhere that we just didn't see, but we had to lug our bags up a couple flights of stairs (only downside, really). Everything else was just fine. We paid $167.20 for a one bedroom suite with a pull out sleeper in the living room. The bathroom was shared, but for one night, it was tolerable for the four of us. If you're looking for something within walking distance to State Street in Santa Barbara, this is not for you, but if you don't mind a 10 minute drive, this is the place! This is my second time staying there, and because it's a nice, clean place, I would definitely stay there again!

This hotel is on an attractively landscaped property. it is an older property ut has been maintained well. The rooms are clean and fresh and comfortable. The free cooked to order breakfast was fast and pleasing. Friendly and helpful staff. A comfortable nights rest!

If you are looking for more space and amenities than a typical hotel at a great value and don't mind being away from the downtown area, this property is for you!

Our family of four recently stayed here for four nights, and enjoyed having two separate rooms - one bedroom in which we selected two double beds (yes, small beds, but nice) and another living room with a sleeper sofa bed, a small round table, a sitting chair, a mini fridge, and cabinet space. Both rooms were decent size, but not huge, and had flat screen TVs. There are no doors between either the rooms or the sink area; the only interior door is to the bathroom with the toilet/shower, which wasn't a problem for us, but could be if you have light sleepers. The rooms are nice and bright; the bedroom has windows with shutters to the outside, and the living room has a slider with curtains. The rooms are pretty nicely furnished, and the bathroom was very clean and neat, but a bit dated (not old and yucky, but also not the latest style).

This hotel is not cheap, but Santa Barbara area hotels are very expensive, and this property is a great value if you don't mind being located at the northern edge of Santa Barbara close to UCSB. It is between UCSB (5-10 minute drive) and downtown Santa Barbara (10-15 minute drive). We brought our bicycles and loved biking to UCSB; there is a trail close to the hotel that passes by Goleta beach on the way to UCSB, which is less than five miles each way. The hotel has tons of amenities included in the room rate, which makes it a good value: free parking, wi-fi, daily full cooked-to-order breakfast, Monday through Thursday happy hour in a formal-feeling "sitting room" with wine, soda, and appetizers, and a pool and hot tub.

I give this property 5-stars due to its being an excellent choice and value: tastefully appointed, clean, great amenities, and pleasant, spacious suites. But understand that this is NOT a 5-star luxury property, (probably more like 3.5 stars), but in terms of value for what you'd expect in this price range in Santa Barbara, it's an excellent choice.
