    The location was excellent and the breakfast most enjoyable. Best Danishes so far and the cereal offered was a very nice touch! A good experience. Just noisy guests.

    Nothing to do with the hotel - just very inconsiderate guests arriving late and banging and shouting outside in the parking area. The staff on duty should remind them that they should be quite and consider the guest who are akready trying to sleep (we talking 11h30 pm) Found the place to be noisy.

  • Older travelers
    8.2

    Location- It was close to the museum, the mission, State St. shopping & restaurants, and only a short drive to the beach.

    The bed was not comfortable.....need new mattresses.

  • Older travelers
    3.8

    This hotel should be considered a last resort. It is far from the downtown area, and although clean, it badly needs upgrading. Non- existent sound insulation so you hear every sound around you and above you. It is basically a Quality Inn/Motel 6 despite the folksy name. Outrageously priced considering the amenities and location. Very limited continental breakfast served in cramped conditions in lobby. Can not recommend.

  • Family with children
    3.2

    dirty and bad smell , lot spots and torn carpet. It need renovate immediatly. Hotel staff not have service mind.

  • Older travelers
    8.2

    Nice reception staff. Room clean and comfortable. Complimentary breakfast choice was good.

    Air conditionong unit was noisy as was the refrigerator placed inside a drawer/cabinet.

  • Older travelers
    5.0

    Nothing, we changed hotels at our first opportunity

    They more than double the prices for w/e reservations and @ $270/night plus 12% occupancy tax, the accommodation is severely overpriced

  • Family with children
    6.2

    Liked the fact that the rooms were divided so 5 of us were accommodated in 2 areas.

    Carpets could have been cleaner.

  • Group of friends
    9.6

    The staff was fabulous, very helpful and friendly. The room was extremely clean, well-maintained, and had a microwave and refridgerator.with nice amenities, such as coffee pot, hairdryer, great bath gel, soaps, shampoo, etc. Housekeeping staff was so friendly; they always had a smile and a "hello." There is a designated smoking area, which is smoker-friendly with tables and umbrellas. The general manager was on-site one day and was so very interested in our comfort and enjoyment of the facilities. There is also a pool and gym, vending machines and newspapers. I would definitely choose this hotel for my next stay in Santa Barbara. A+a+a+a+a+

    One of the two queen beds was next to the air conditioner and blew on the bed. Problem solved by placing an extra pillow over half the vent.

  • Family with children

    I played a tennis tournament, took my family and was able to afford a suite with 2 rooms , great value.

  • Older travelers
    7.0

    Very clean. Our room felt private and quiet. It was nice to be able to open a window for ventilation in the bathroom (although there was no other ventilation). Free parking. Nice pastries for breakfast. Convenient free parking. It is near a municipal golf course. We stumbled into a very nice restaurant that is frequented by locals.

    Although it was one of the lowest prices we could find for a holiday weekend it is not particularly special for the price paid. It is not close to the beach and the main tourist area although it's not too hard to reach those locations from this property.

  • Couple
    5.0

    I liked that it was cheap

    I hated the smell - it was so musty smelling

  • Family with children
    7.4

    Tidy rooms, well equiped (fridge, heating,cooling, hairdryer), helpful staff, restorants, fast foods and shoppings centres just nearby.

    slow wifi, far from the city center and from the beach by walking, by car 10 mins.

  • Family with children
    3.2

    Swimming pool

    Too expensive for motel comparable to motel 6.

  • Family with children
    7.4

    Easy to find, nice staff.

    We had a two bedroom suite with a shared bath, except the bathroom was only accessible from one of the two bedrooms.

  • Older travelers
    9.2

    It was a good room at a good value (I got a deal by booking late). The bed was comfortable. The staff was courteous and helpful. I appreciate that the coffee, orange juice, and croissant were of good quality and that the continental breakfast was available to late risers.
