I was happy to find a hotel that was part of the Hilton chain in Santa Barbara. We were able to use Hilton Honors points and cash for a two night stay Sun.-Tues. before Thanksgiving. The staff is very accommodating. Many of the rooms have been refurbished and we were in one of those. The bathroom door needed a coat of paint, though, and the floor grout needed a good cleaning. Much of the resort was being upgraded so there were construction workers and debris, and there were closed areas. The gym had to be accessed from outside. I would have liked newer floor mats to work out on and lighter weights - in the 8 lb. range. The outside bar area is nice with fire pits and they have happy hour 5-7 M-F. Train noise and nearby quarry ?machinery noise were a bit of a nuisance. Though we didn't bring our dog, I would next time. They are dog friendly and I loved seeing happy owners vacationing with their happy, well-behaved, furry friends.
