Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Phoenician2015 Great location but tiny bathrooms!
Overall, this is a very good hotel. Great location, very nice hotel rooms and public areas. The exercise facility is very, very small (about half the size of a hotel room) - but it has good quality equipment. My biggest concern was the bathroom - it was tiny! So tiny that you have to fold back the shower door to use the toilet.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Momtobe2015 Pricey Sized Dorm Room with Great Service/Location
Everything about this hotel is great except the size of the room/bathroom. Had I been the one to choose a hotel in Santa Barbara, I probably would have looked at other accommodations based on the reviews of others. Don't get me wrong, the service, location and cleanliness of the hotel was amazing but the price did not justify the size of the room/bathroom. We only stayed for a night so it wasn't that bad but I would have changed hotels if we stayed longer.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by brisky Quaint and querky hotel but tiny rooms
Overall experience was good. We loved the ambience and decor of the hotel and the staff were helpful and friendly. Down side is that the rooms are small and the hotel is right next to the railway tracks (trains blow their horns as they pass). Design of the bathroom was strange in that the toilet is virtually in the shower recess so watch out for getting wet. Not a cheap hotel given the size of the rooms.

This is a great hotel for a couple staying in Santa Barbara. The rooms are very small but very comfortable. With so much to do and see in town this room is all you need. Hotel also has beautiful lounges and a modern art library!

The hotel is cheery and bright, and so are the rooms, although they are incredibly small. The real issue was the bathroom, with the shower that wasn't closed off. I felt like I was showering on the toilet and even though there were shower curtains creating a barrier between the rest of the bathroom, water managed to get all over. In an already tiny bathroom, it was cramped and awkward.
The patio outside my window played music that I could hear into my room until 2 am, when I called the front desk to request it to stop. The light outside, however, was never turned off and my drapes didn't close all the way. Needless to say, I didn't get a good sleep.
The staff was friendly and I enjoyed the complementary wine hour. The location near the beach is awesome, but I would definitely look elsewhere before staying here again.
