There was a separate living area with couches, table and TV. Mattresses were soft in my opinion. The room looks clean but the overall hotel seems a little tired especially the bathroom/sink areas. Rooms are spread out in the property like a resort.

Morning breakfast was cooked to order. You check the options you want on an order form and hand it to the cook. There's the usual pastries, yogurt, fruits, juices and coffee.

I would stay there again if I was in the Santa Barbara area again.

Just returned from a 2-night stay here. We loved the location: tucked away yet right next to 101. The rooms were really clean and the beds were comfortable. The best things was both kids slept well. Also, the breakfast was great with the hot made-to-order format. Never seen that before. The only glitch was we had to sit outside on a cold morning with the kids to eat the first day we were there. We figured that we were probably a little late and the dining room was full. So if you travel during winter and want to sit in the cozy dining room instead of outside, plan to get there by 7am or 8am max. To be fair, one of the outdoor seating did have a patio heater but we were not lucky enough to sit by it. Oh and the next morning we did sit inside and loved our breakfast! Their awesome coffee machine made the perfect latte and amazing hot chocolate. :-)

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!
