10.0 Wonderful
I loved the location. The price was a bit steep for the hotel that looked like a motel in the rooms.
9.4 Wonderful
Pros:The star was incredibly nice and welcoming. The location was also so perfect. Easily walkable to all of the cute shops, restaurants and wine tasting rooms. The complimentary breakfast was also a great surprise. Overall a really wonderful place and staff in the heart of the action!
Cons:Maybe a little updating. We had a cracked mirror on the closet. The ac unit was very old as well.
5.4 Fair
Pros:Location is good . Front desk staff are rude and unhelpful. I stayed once before but I'd forgotten how rude she was. If I would have remembered I would have never returned .
6.0 Okay
Cons:Reception wasn't friendly Very poor shower, almost no running water
9.1 Wonderful
Pros:Clean rooms, friendly staff, nice sized room with a balcony. TV not much good, although there were probably 50 channels listed on the guide next to the TV only about a dozen came in. Seems like they cancelled cable and put up an over the air antenna.
8.2 Very good
Pros:It was a super clean and very modern. Having a microwave and a frig in the room was extremely useful! The shower was spacious and the bathroom was tighty! Would stay here again!
Cons:I did not like the fact that for both check-in and check-out I was waiting five plus minutes for someone to help me. They have a button that you press for service and I pressed it several times for service. No one came till I had pushed it four times.
5.4 Fair
Pros:Nice location, close to the beach, but has a baseball field across from the hotel which I was not too crazy about. Quiet area. Free breakfast
Cons:The place could use some updating. Nasty old carpets in the hallways. The room was somewhat dusty. The whole place can use a facelift. Was not overall impressed with the place, thought it could be cleaner and better kept in shape.
9.1 Wonderful
Pros:The location is amazing. We took the train into Santa Barbara and the hotel was only about a 5 min walk away. It's one block from the beach, close to the breakwater and a short walk to the peir or downtown. Rooms are clean, comfortable and modern.
