We stayed here for two nights (mid-week) in April 2016. The hotel is located outside the downtown core -- about a 10-15 mins drive to the wharf. Check-in was smooth. Front desk and the restaurant looks modern, bright and welcoming. This was a stark contrast to our room. Our room was right next to the housekeeping room, and there was...

Great for a Motel. Very nice room with a balcony overlooking the pool area. Free parking and free WiFi. Nice bar and friendly staff. Downside: did not have a fridge and around the pool it can get a bit noisy when youngsters are partying. As I arrived late, I only had a drink a the bar and went straight to...

Lovely hotel with nice pool area. Ate in the crocodile restaurant which is part of the hotel and had good food. This was the only accommodation during our trip which didn't come with a complimentary breakfast however there is a supermarket directly behind so we bought croissants and fruit for breakfast.

As I say we didn't explore locally so not sure how its location works out if you are staying a while. Rooms were great really spacious and clean. Loads of...

Attended a concert at the Santa Barbara Bowl and spent the night here afterward. The staff at the desk were very pleasant and helpful We asked if we could walk the 1.4 miles to the bowl and they suggested ubering instead. They were right. The room was clean and spacious. The bed was okay in terms of comfort and bedding....

The online photos were better than the actual hotel. The room was very old and it had a musty smell, especially in the bathroom. There was dust visible everywhere. The floors did not seem clean. Also, you can hear everything from rooms above and next door. The grounds are pretty and the restaurant was good. For the money, I'd rather...

Not what they advertised, smell of detergent and not clean. It is hard to pay $300 for this quality of room. They claimed all units were remember Seles and quality is great. It was not obviously remodeled. We saw lots of vacancy near by and they are all in same quality for less price. I do not recommend, before check...
