Check in was easy, room was clean and nice, hotel is at a good location from downtown Santa Barbara, the breakfast in the morning had a wide variety of selection! Would go there again!
Welcoming, immaculate and great staff; thank you. I came during the evacuation in S.B. and found it perfect for my needs.
A pleasant and unexpected surprise, close to everything. Very clean and we were upgraded to a junior suite, thank you. Breakfast was good.
Quiet, clean, remodeled modern and great breakfast. Perfect. Beds very comfy too.
We loved the hotel and the little Danish town of Solvang. The room was a loft. Nice but bathroom was on ground level and bed on the upper level. Breakfast was cvery good. The hotel within walking distance to restaurants and main street. We felt in Europe for a day...!
