The room was very clean, good pillows, comfortable Bed, lovely large towels, and my husband loved the double shower head , looking for one to buy! Poolside, room was small but ok for the price. Santa Barbara is one of the loveliest cities in California, should not be missed

Rooms are spacious. Staff was courteous. Free breakfast had a good variety even for vegetarians. The location is convenient to highway. That should make a traveler ready for highway or road noise. The advantage is that there is a public park across the street where people can walk, stretch, etc.

Property features a small heated pool in the center courtyard, with plenty of chaises, seating and towels available for guests poolside. The breakfast area... More

Location-wise this hotel is perfect. With a coffee to go from the lobby you can walk over to two beaches. Right around the corner is a bar frequented by students since from the side rooms you look over the baseball field where the college team prepares for their games :) The rooms are nice and clean and the breakfast is...

Excellent location for the pier, harbour and beachside. Walking distance to State street which is the main drag for food, bars. If the other end of State suggest a taxi/uber at least a couple of miles; we walked back to the hotel. Room was clean, normal issues for hotels with the remote needed squeezed to get it to work properly.... More

Pros: 1. Good location. It's right across the street from the harbor and beach. 2. Free breakfast. Nothing fancy but it's one less hassle at 6am. 3. Decent size room if you're traveling with pets. 4. Rain shower. 5. Several covered parking spots. 6. Microwave and mini frig. Cons: 1. No king size bed for pet friendly rooms. 2. Parking... More
