“Beautiful grounds, friendly service”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 24 February 2012

We enjoyed our one night's stay here and would imagine a family with kids would love it. The grounds are beautiful and the pool area is very pretty. Breakfast was very nice and the rooms are clean and comfortable. I don't think you could go wrong staying here. It is not directly on the highway and we found it to be very quiet.

Room Tip: Avoid a room with a connecting door, unless it's someone you know. Noise travels through the do...

Stayed here 2/18-2/10 and stayed in one of their suites. Consisted of a separate bedroom with queenbed and tv and a sofabed, sitting area kitchenette and another tv. Room worked well and did not have any problem with freeway noise as some previous reviewers mentioned. Very clean and well maintained property with good breakfast consisting of hard-boiled eggs, bagels, cereal, coffee, juice etc. The grounds are immaculately maintained with a heated pool and hot tub. Would recommend for families on vacation...

Room Tip: we stayed in room 105 which faced the freeway but we did not have any problems with noise. If you ar...

stayed here one night and arrived late, so we did not get to sample all the ammenities, but my impression is favourable. Front desk staff were polite and helpful at check in. the rooms were clean and the bed comfy. free wifi, which is as expected. pretty quiet on the side (west) of the building where are room was.

The complementary breakfast was good, with quite a bit of variety - including some hot choices, and fruit and yogurt. it was crowded in the breakfast area, but we were fine sitting outside (although it might be chilly for some).

I did make use of the complementary shuttle (to the airport). it was a wee bit late, but the driver was pleasant and effecient - no problems.

overall i would definitely stay again if i was in the area - it would probably make a decent base for a vacation if you were staying in the Sta Barbara area.

I never write reviews, but I thought I should since I relied on them so much for this quick mini-vacation. This hotel was perfect for us! We came up for one night and wanted clean, comfortable and the kids wanted a pool (in January!!) We got it all - The gentleman at the front desk - Troy, I think - was friendly, let us check in early and was helpful with dinner plans. The room was clean, the beds were so comfy!! and the pool and spa were perfect (even in January)! We ended up using the dvd lending service and really enjoyed the breakfast. It was more than we had expected!

Thanks for helping make a great little trip!

Enjoyed staying here over the weekend. The front desk was very accommodating and friendly. Great breakfast but get there early (not enough seats); wonderful coffee machine (24/7). We even got some warm chocolate chip cookies in the afternoon. In this day and age, it's nice to have free internet, free parking and free breakfast in a pleasant environment. The only thing I didn't really like was rollaway sofa bed for my daughter - it was so bad she ended up putting the sofa back and sleeping on top of the cushions.

Dear Guest,
Thank you for taking the time to post feedback about your stay with us! We are so glad that you enjoyed the many amenities we have to offer, including our warm cookies and wonderful latte and mocha coffee machine. So many of our guests find that machine a frequent stop on their stay here. We are sorry that the sofa bed was uncomfortable for your daughter. We hope on your next visit that we can accommodate you into a more comfortable room with two queen beds. Please call me, and I will personally help you with your next reservation.
Sincerely,
Nicole Weland
