“Bad Location, Noisy”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 13 November 2013

It is located across the street from a baseball park and when we arrived around 10pm there was still a baseball game going on. I had to turn up the tv just to drown out the noise of people yelling across the street. It only has a small stand up shower. The breakfast is bad. Everything is pre-package high-fructose corn syrup garbage. There is nothing to do in Santa Barbara, so I would not stay here again.

I enjoyed my one night stay here on 15 October. I note the comment of the other reviewer that it was noisy but put that down to the loud family that stood outside for ages talking incessantly and going in and out of their unit. I don't think that is typical and I don't think it is the fault of thin dooors - just bad timing!

It's in a good location, a few blocks away from the sea and State Street. May not look fantastic from outside but perfectly functional. I felt quite safe in the area at night. The room was more than adequate, clean and had all the facilities I needed, including free wi-fi. I don't expect motels to provide a good breakfast so usually go somewhere else to eat.

The owners were perfectly friendly, and check in and out were both completed efficiently.

No bad marks from me, so I'd go back - just hope the chattering family won't be there again!

Very clean for an old building but they need to solve the parking problem. A little more choices for breakfast.

Stayed here because it is close to the Amtrak station, the beach and great dining options. Also am familiar with Days Inn. The room was clean and more than adequate for one person. However the doors seem to be thin because I could easily hear conversations outside. Other guests seemed to be slamming their doors. Breakfast was not much better than a cup of coffee. The cheap pastries were inadequate. The lobby is too small for more than two people trying to serve themselves. Bagels and fresh fruit would be a much better choice. On day two I walked a couple blocks to a service station and ended up with a much more satisfying breakfast. Did not notice the unsavory people hanging out like other reviewers mentioned. Over all this is a good place to spend a night or two if you're not looking for luxury.

This hotel was adequate for our stay. We could walk to most locations, it had free wifi and staff were helpful with information on the area and restaurants. The complimentary breakfast offered was tea/coffee and pastries only. This is adequate for a 1 night stay, but we were craving something fresher and healthy, like cereal and fruit. An update to the beds would also be recommended. Our 2 double beds in room 111 were very uncomfortable. Decent mattress toppers at least.
