HOTEL’S FAVOURITE REVIEW
Reviewed 30 January 2017 via mobile

Oh my word! This hotel beats all. I am a student and was trying to keep it cheap by going with air bnb and that went wrong so I ended up staying at this pretty pricey hotel. I was in for a treat! Check in was easy and was entreated to this beautifully landscaped courtyard as I walked to my...

Dirty room, smelly towels, toilet ran all night, shower next to us sounded like a freight train coming. Woke us all up immediately and terrified my son. No place to set clothes or bags on. Repirted it to staff in the morning and never heard back from management. Left after the one night of a three night reservation and slept...

We were able to get a discount for our stay thus we were able to afford our 5-day stay. We really love the atmosphere there. We had a room facing the pond, that was very special to us. The continental breakfast and staff were great. Great location for us to visit both Goleta and Santa Barbara. I really recommend this...

Extreamly good customer service and care for the customer. A big shout out to Leti for helping with the reservation on a super busy night in Santa Barbara/Goleta. She made everything so simple as I called in a panic to find a room. I had tried 15 plus hotels but she had a room available and really helped us out...

I booked a two night stay after reading such great reviews. I paid over $300 a night, and it definitely is not an upscale hotel for that price. The bathroom has not been upgraded since the 80s. Painted wallpaper, old cabinet, rusted pipes in shower, old door fixtures. Walls really thin, popcorn ceiling. Elevator was broken. Grounds are beautiful though,...

Dear 95678, Thank you for choosing to stay with us and for mentioning how beautiful our lush tropical gardens and lagoons are. That is one place where time can slip away because of the serenity it provides our guests. Every room has a private patio or balcony and if you selected a Superior Room, there is a good chance that...
