    Very good

    Little traffic noise in the rear unit we stayed in.Room was comfortable and the bed excellent.Internet use was very slow on ocasions.

    Some guests seemed to like slamming their room doors.The towels we had in our rooom were small and thin.Would liked to have had use of a microwave in reception area to heat up food from the local Gleson and other market shops

    Convenient to access, very clean, quiet, and the staff was friendly. I had unfortunately left my cell phone recharge unit in the room on checking out and they mailed it to me. I would stay again when in the city of Santa Barbara

    The bathroom was good.

    The service was very bad. One person of the group had problems to enter in hotel when she arrived and she was not treated properly. The room was not cleaned every day and had bad smell.

    Great

    The staff are very friendly & helpful. Attention to a leaky fixture was handled promptly. The continental breakfast offered many choices & the pasteries were fresh.

    Parking is limited so if sharing a room with a friend & you have 2 cars you may have to park off site. We did not have to thank goodness. The room was clean & comfy but dark.

    The location.

    The rooms and furnishings are dismal, and the bathrooms outdated and semi clean. I had a first floor room and the noise from the foot traffic from the rooms above was annoying at times. We could not use the shower the morning we left until the persons in the neighboring room turned off their shower and allowed hot water to be available in ours. I have stayed in hundreds of hotels and this was a first for me.

    There was nothing I liked I was very disappointed.

    The room smelt musty, damp and felt cold. The carpet felt sticky...and stained. It was also worn at the edges. The bed , matress and pillows were lumpy and the linen and towels old..The decore was terible. This hotel is sooooo over priced its crazy.

    Perfect

    The breakfast is simple but good quality. The almond and chocolate croissant usually cost a lot but they had them at the breakfast. The coffee was great. We had a suite that our other family member get a separate room; this is perfect to have a family vacation together. The Lodge is right on the State Street and very easy to get to any place we wish. The price is very reasonable compared from other places in Santa Barbara.

    The second floor was quite slippery from the morning dew; they should put down some carpet to prevent from people falling down. This is an important safety issue.
