Latest Santa Barbara Hotel Reviews

Excelent experience
Great overall experience. Service is outstanding, from the check in preferences matched by Javier and Lorenzo at the front desk, all the way thru the check out and the help of Yennifer, Margarita and [More] Maribel, who arrange all the check out for me. This hotel has one of the best staff I've seen. [Less]
Business trip to Oxnard
By Ajc87
Good hotel and clean and tidy. Train line is so loud it lowered overall score [Less]
Nice Room Great Staff
By Spectrum
Stayed for 3 nights on business. The was very clean and nice. The bed kind of sucked and felt broke down. The hotel breakfast was horrible and overpriced. Started going to a local coffee shop/diner [More] for food. Staff was awesome and very helpful. [Less]

In addition to the rooms being comfortable and clean (I have been in 3 now), the staff are always very welcoming and approachable. I truely felt like a guest. The location is also covenient to [More] shopping, resturants, and the beach. [Less]
Great Hotel, Unimpressive Staff
By Luka
The hotel is an adopted old building that used to house a much older hotel. Instead of renovating it to fit a cardboard cut-out format, the owners used the existing style while cleaning things up [More] and updating all the amenities. The overall cleanliness, amenities and room quality was beyond excellent. The front-desk staff (one receptionist in particular) were helpful, but not very receptive to the issues we had making sure our bill was accurate (we were double-billed and in the end, never received an accurate print-out of our bill, despite being charged the proper amount in the end). Without the manager's diligence and desire to communicate personally with us the next morning, it is unlikely I'd want to stay again in spite of the phenomenal experience otherwise. The location is fantastic and the value for what you get is unbelievable; this hotel is worth your while if you are in Downtown Santa Barbara for any reason!! [Less]
Best hotel in Carp
By Bill
Business traveler to Carp here. Don't stay anywhere else, this is the best hotel in Carp. [Less]
Pet-friendly and clean.
By Ann123
I have stayed here three or four times, now, each time with my dogs. It is a clean and attractive place, especially considering that it is pet friendly. Breakfast is good here, with a good [More] selection. There is always coffee available in the lobby, as well as snacks for purchase. There are grassy areas for your pets. We shortened our stay here because we decided to visit another town at the last minute. There was no problem doing this. Staff was very accommodating. Regarding pets: the first time we stayed here, I had to pay the pet fee for only the first night. On subsequent visits, I had to pay every night. However, the pet fee is very reasonable compared to many other locations. Also, the pet rules have become more strict over time. This last time, I had to sign an agreement to comply with many rules concerning my dog, including that if it were found that I had left my dogs in the room alone, I would be asked to leave the motel immediately with no refund. This rule is not as bad as another motel's that I stayed in, where they threaten to have the dog picked up by Animal Control if left alone in the room. I guess these motels have had some bad experiences with pets and their owners in the past. People with pets should be responsible so that motels will continue to accommodate our pets. Lastly, my dogs loved the room and the motel! [Less]
Mother's Day Treat!
By Sharie
The hotel is close to everything, walking distance to the beach and very comfortable. It was my mother's Day treat... Had all three kids and love that yours is only hotel in the area that allows 5 [More] people in a room!! Thank you for that. Only complaint is the price... Nightly rate makes it basically unaffordable for us except for rare occasions like Mothers Day. And it isn't even on the water like most beach hotels are! But the amenities are TOP NOTCH for sure! Gym was outstanding, pool small but clean. Landscaping beautiful. Attention to details... Love coffee and apples available all day! [Less]
