This hotel is a well kept secret just 4 minutes outside Santa Barbara. Half the price of where we usually stay, quieter, bigger pool warmed to 85 degrees, koi ponds, and hot breakfast in the morning! We will be back.

We stayed at this hotel on a weekend. The staff at the front desk was very friendly. Our room was a double queen, very spacious and clean. Our balcony was facing the garden, the view was quite good. Free continental breakfast had a good variety of choices. Overall pretty good experience at this hotel.

PROS: - easy check-in process, friendly staff - proximity to highway and eating options CONS: - everything was outdated. Decor, furniture, carpets, etc... - the 'continental breakfast' was among the worst I have seen for any...
