The outside doesn't really look like much, however the room was a real pleasant surprise. The rooms are similar to a really nice Court Yard or Holiday Inn. Santa Barbara hotels are really expensive and not that great, so we were impressed with the value with this hotel. However, I am sure it is way more expensive during high season.
- Location- on Cabrillo St., just a handful of blocks from State Street. Some of the rooms have great ocean views.
- Free Wifi and Free Breakfast.
- Has a hot tub and pool.
- Plenty of Parking; they just charge $3.
- Pretty Quiet Hotel, Friendly Staff.
- Renovated Rooms with comfy bed, flat screen TV, and pretty decor. Bathrooms would just need granite to call it a 4 star interior.
- It is located across from a large park where a lot of homeless like to hangout.
- Exterior is very motel-ish, with outside stairs and entrances (they have elevators too.)
- No fancy amenities, just a basic pool and spa and small breakfast area.
- We got this on Hotwire for around $120 a night thursday in October. It was one of their 3 star mystery hotels.
-Ask for a room on the top floor, so no one is above you. The view of the park also has a small ocean view.
