Loved this hotel with its lovely staff - Peter was very helpful and knowledgeable helping us settle in when we checked in. We had a lovely large room towards the back of the hotel site, which was quiet and spacious. There was plenty of storage space, with a large dressing area next to a bright airey bathroom. The bed was lovely and large, very comfortable with pleasant bedding, there was a radio with ipod/iphone docking station.
This hotel is not situated in the main centre of Santa Barbara but is located near the marina with many shops and restaurants, definately within walking distance to both the marina and the main street. Although there is a large supply of various bicycles if you wished to cycle to the main street or surrounding areas, Santa Barbara is fairly spread out to the bikes are a nice way to see it all.
There is a small gym a hot tub and a lovely pool area with loungers which we enjoyed using; a lovely suntrap for topping up your tan. There is plenty of parking, with some bays covered and shaded.
Breakfast consisted of fresh fruit, pastries, cereals, yoghurts, tea, coffee and fresh fruit juice,its all laid out buffet style and you can choose to sit inside or outside on one of the patioed areas.
We enjoyed our stay here, everyone was friendly and hospitable, we loved the free wine and hors d'oevres during late afternoon after a hectic day shopping and sightseeing. However, the only thing that disappointed us, and this is only a small issue, but the wifi access was not great, very intermittent or slow. We found this frustrating and and advised reception but I think that perhaps our location within the hotel worked against us, maybe some sort of booster is needed.
Otherwise, I would not hesitate to recommend this hotel and would definately return, we enjoyed our honeymoon stay - thanks!
