"Nice hotel, but definitely dated. However, wi-fi worked fine, and it was very close to downtown Santa Barbara, so for the money I'd recommend it to anyone."

Customer service was also awesome so for us it’s a ten out of ten!"

"Great place and always priced reasonably. Great staff. The hotel could use a little bit of an upgrade at this point, and the food was not what I would expect from this hotel. But the staff was excellent and accommodating and you can't beat being across the street from the beach with amazing views from the grounds and your room. Got married here over 9 year ago and the venue was the best Ive seen around!"

"My wife and I were visiting our daughter in SB, and decided to spend the night rather than drive back to OC. The hotel was nice and comfortable. It is reasonably close to State Street and just off the 101. I gave it 3 stars for value for value for money only because I find hotels in SB to be higher priced than comparable CA cities. Overall, clean, comfortable, friendly staff and affordable accommodation in SB. "

"We loved Santa Barbara and this place was perfect for us. It was well located only about a 2 min walk from the waterfront. State street is probably a 10-15 min walk so super easy to get to. Although quickest route involves quite a few dark roads but even so, very easy to get everywhere. The man and woman on reception were so lovely. We loved them!! Room was nice and clean and spacious. Bed was so comfy and big. Shower wasn't so great but we made do. Breakfast was also surprising tasty! Car parking was really easy and they let you leave your car after checkout if you want to spend the day there. Competitive price compares to other places we looked at - still seems expensive to me but I think that's the exchange range to be honest. Would definitely stay here again and also recommend them. Thanks for a lovely stay! See you again. "
