    This was a great place to stay in Santa Barbara . Close to all attractions and the beach. Clean, nice staff, and very large room. Continental breakfast in morning was just what we needed. Fruit, rolls, coffee and juice. Perfect.

    Yes - there was a small coffee machine in our room with a pack each of weak regular and bland decaf. The lobby coffee (available between 7:00 am and 10:00 am) is much better, though.
