Clean property stayed one night. Staff is very friendly. Rooms are spacious and beds are very comfortable. Nice pool area with plenty of seating. Enjoyed our time here as we traveled up the coast. Would stay here again.

On a road trip down California Coast. Loved the open lobby with ocean breezes and view of the pool. Large room, no bathtub. Toilet seat didn't fit toilet and refrigerator had to be turned off because of loud shrill noise. Reported the refrigerator to manager and he said they were new and would have it replaced. Good location, friendly staff. Breakfast bar not designed well and too crowded. Overall good hotel.

Room Tip: Second floor was nice.

I appreciate your comments regarding the ocean breezes and lovely pool. Yes, the rooms have been renovated and modern as we completed our renovation of the hotel in April. We have replaced the noisy refrigerator in your room. I'm please you found the location convenient and the staff helpful. We look forward to having you as our guest the next time you visit Santa Barbara!

Clean, comfortable, large room. Breakfast was great, never seemed crowded even though hotel was fully booked. A little far to walk to the beach (20 mins, but much longer if you get distracted by the shopping!). There's a cheap shuttle bus that takes you up and down State street and along the whole beach front (transfer required). It costs only 50 cents, but beware it stops running at 6pm! Also the bus stop is tricky to find from hotel: to go South on State street towards beach, you actually have to take the shuttle going North (it circles around a back street).

We did a booking with booking.com. But when arrived they had overbooket. Booking.com said that it was the hotel. In the reception they told us servel times that they would pay for our stay at a other hotel. But when we came to our new hotel they would not pay.

I apologize that we were overbooked when you arrived at the hotel. It is our policy to pay for guests that we relocate for one night's stay. I'm confident we honored our policy. If for some reason that is not the case please contact me personally so I can assist in resolving this matter.

Kind regards,

Scott Nevius
General Manager

Stayed here one night. Rooms were spacious and clean. Nice little pool. Free, but basic, continental breakfast. Close to shops and restaurants. Dog-friendly hotel (ie lots of dogs in the parking lot!).

Thank you for taking time to write a review of our hotel. Next time - come stay for longer! You'll find that our hotel is convenient to all the things you didn't get to enjoy in just one day. :)
