Great staff, poor restoration
Staff was great and restaurant had great food.
Hair in sink opon arrival, killed 2 spiders in room, 1 on floor, 1 on ceiling, beds were uncomfortable, bad shower head effected water pressure, bad weathstripping on door created breeze through crack, watered down coffee. Not typical of the quality I'm used to with Kimpton properties. Seems they bought motel and gave it a boutique look, but failed to go the extra mile to make it great, the reason I choose over other hotels was great past experiences with Kimpton. This one failed to live up to my expectations and was pricey for what we received.
This hotel, has a very comfortable and relaxed feel about it. They have a great attention to detail throughout the hotel, from the furnishings to the complimentary toiletries. The record player in the room, was also a great touch.
We was also given a free room upgrade too, as we was staying there as part of our honeymoon, which was greatly appreciated. We would definitely recommend this hotel to anyone.
Funky modern hotel
I liked the style of the hotel, sorta a funky vintage modern. I appreciated the record player abd Beach Boys vinyl in the room. The large shower was also welcome.
Room was really quite small with no desk. This wasnt a working trip, so not a big deal. Also the cool armchair in my room had ropes across the armrests, which were really uncomfortable.
The restaurant had a solid chestnut soup.
From other's reviews, this seems to have been a decent hotel at some point in time. It no longer is. Insects in the room, dusty, dirty bathroom, etc.
Love the vibe and decoration
did not like the noise level
Loved the in room entertainment - a turntable with an album collection library - happy hour a bonus pool towels gym all adequate staff super freindly and helpful...eager to meet needs..service at its best...accompdations perfectly adequate - basic if you need a true description - but all you need in a beach town...
Hotel was quirky & fun!
Doors to room were not sealed all the way-you could see light coming in from gaps
location was decent
346 for a motel?
Beautiful and hip
Loved the decor and design of the rooms. The staff was also quite friendly.
Decent value for the style and location.
Excellent customer service in all aspects of the hotel. Checkin was awesome. Service at the restaurant and bar was great. It's a decent value in the Santa Barbara area. I've never been to a Kimpton prior but from my friends descriptions of other Kimptons this one is their budget friendly version where there's still a lot of style for the money though.
It feels like a re-vamped 70's hotel that it is. I wish they had spent a little more money on replacing the door and window to something more sound proof and secure. You can see the outside between the door and the doorframe. For some reason you have to pull up on the door handle to open the door which made us think that the door was malfunctioning when it would open the normal way. For a new remodel there seems to be a bit more wear and tear than expected but maybe that's part of the 70's modern industrial design. The restaurant manager was berating his employees in front of the customers, which was really sad as the employees were super nice and helpful.
Great place to stay
The record player in the room was awesome.
There was nothing that I didn't like
I stayed there only one night but me and my family planed to have another trip there with our friends. It had a unique design and professional staffs.
