  • Disliked: Cleanliness, staff & service, amenities, property conditions & facilities

Many amenities closed. Free breakfast was a joke. 40 mins to get a cup of OJ. This property is not adapting well to COVID.

  • Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service, amenities, property conditions & facilities

Beautiful rooms, lounge areas, fire pit, and pool. Perfect location, close enough to state street but still quiet. Directly across from East Beach where you can watch sunset and volleyball games. I will absolutely be staying here next time I am in SB!

The Hotel is right across from the Beach, street parking was easy to find and Stearns Wharf is a 10 minute walk . We had a Mountain View room and the staff let us change to a ocean view without any trouble . The room is simple and not very modern but u go to Santa Barbara for the Beach not the room . I gave it a 4 because the maid left hair in the room . Other then that the stay was nice .

  • Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service

I wasn't really impressed by it especially for that price, I expected way more, but location is great. Room is small. The hotel doesn't even have a little hotel shop with goodies. I think everything was clean so that was good. We infected everything anyways. People were nice and cordial, no problems at all there. I just wasn't impressed with the rooms; it's kind of old looking. I like more modern hotels. We stayed in the main bldg. facing the beach. That was a nice upgrade no extra charge when we got there.
