Loved our stay here in Santa Barbara! Modern decor, very clean, comfortable bed, excellent customer service, and pet friendly. Located on State St, just blocks from restaurants, dining, entertainment. Will definitely be back!

Overall we couldn't fault this place. We had been on the road for a while staying at at times quite 'so so' motels and to find this place that wasn't really much more expensive was a relief. We just walked in late on a weds night. After about ten minutes of being in the room we got a curtsey call from the front desk to check we liked the room. Although this is such a basic thing to do it has very rarely happened to us even in hotels at twice the price.

Its in the right place, got a fair price for a modern swish room. The bed was fantastic. The breakfast buffet was good.

Bright cheerful place. Very friendly, helpful, efficient staff. Good location. We had pets and this hotel is pet friendly with a good pet area. Pool area is nice but no jacuzzi. That would be a nice addition.

Recently remodeled with a new name and what a difference this makes. Pleasing to the eye, tummy, and sleeping arrangements. Walk to your choice of restaurants as well as to museums and parks. Parking is secure too.

The hotel has great, helpful desk staff, a great continental breakfast and nice lady who maintains the breakfast room and foods. WE stayed on 2nd floor, and out room had been "remodeled," but...the walls are thin, slamming doors from surrounding noisy/carless guests are heard when you are sleeping (or trying to sleep) and the windows are ancient, and sounds pass through the readily. Also, the bed is placed beside the windows so that you hear street noises easier (just what you do not want to hear) versus away from these windows. The bathroom is nice size but apparently the latest "design" is to have a sliding glass door at the bathroom entry....a poor choice, since if a person awakes and wants to use the bathroom the light shines out into the sleeping person's area. Bed is nice firmness. Pillows good also. Overall great location, convenient to walking State Street to shops, restaurants, etc. Wish they would replace the sliding glass door with solid door, move bed away from windows. Would stay again.

Room Tip: Anywhere in a quiet place, but....there is NO quiet location.
