Rooms are great. The one we had was quiet and not facing the courtyard. Balconies are cute, but cold during winter. Friendly staff. Good proximity to city and many things. Room service small menu and amazing mini bar available, don’t need to pack anything with you- they have it!

Charming hotel with a friendly staff. The hotel was accommodating to our requests for early check in. They have clean, spacious rooms. Hotel is “pet-friendly” but it is NOT cat friendly. Lesson learned.

Wonderful boutique style hotel within walking distance to many great restaurants, the beach, downtown...The staff and overall hospitality exceeded our expectations. Palihouse has a charming, lovely aesthetic. Our room was on the second floor overlooking the pool. It was quiet and very spacious. We will definitely return.

Such a great experience. The boutique hotel is tucked away at the quiet end of downtown Santa Barbara, close to the restaurants and theaters as well as the beach. The hotel was brimming with gorgeous vignettes and fun details that were beautiful during the day and elegantly lit at night. The room we stayed in was perfect. Staff was super friendly and accommodating. They took special care of us for our anniversary weekend and spoiled us with little surprises and sweet treats. The free Cocktail hour during 5-6 was exciting, where our mixologist made special complimentary cocktails for us. Overall it was a great experience. Loved staying here and look forward to our next trip.

I booked this property because it seemed stylish and a good value. When i arrived my room was DARK and unwelcoming despite paying for a premium room with balcony and fireplace. The hotel was void of any staff besides the one receptionist. My tv and AC didnt work in my room.

Responded 14 Dec 2021
Hi Z1129VRdavid, Thank you for your review of Palihouse Santa Barbara. I sincerely apologize that your experience at our hotel felt unwelcoming upon arrival. In the evening time, our lights are dimly lit creating an ambiance geared towards having a relaxing drink around the fireplace, or deep connecting with close friends or family in our living room area. In regards to your TV and AC unit not functioning properly, I'm deeply sorry for this inconvenience, as your TV and AC unit should have been fully functional at check in. If you're willing to give Palihouse Santa Barbara another try, I would love the opportunity to welcome you back to the hotel in the near future. Please do not hesitate to reach out if I may be of any further assistance. Best regards, Andrew M. andrewm@palisociety.com
