We stayed for 2 nights in this very comfortable hotel, The staff were very friendly and helpful, Its also very reasonably priced and has a nice small swimming pool. Its ideally placed for a stay in Santa Barbara, walking distance from all the sites and the pier. It is very quiet, and we slept really well, having ridden over 2000...

The room I had was large, cold feeling and very dated. The sliding balcony door rattled loudly in the wind all day and night, waking me constantly whenever a blast of wind would hit it. Only one slat window was functioning so that it could be opened. Bathroom fan was over the top obnoxiously noisy. The help at the front...

First the good. It was a room with two beds and a bathroom. Was quite and peaceful. Now the not so good. The room we had smelled like cheap cologne (room 220). The exhauat shower window sill had a used bandaid and a really old price of used soap stuck on it. One of the beds had a couple of...

My room was very comfortable, reasonably priced and even had a nice view of the mountains behind SB. The pool area is very nice. Room didn't have a microwave and the bathroom was very small but the onsite orange trees were in bloom, and orange blossoms smell fantastic, which is why I give the property 4 stars instead of 3.

I was looking for an inexpensive place not far from the main tourist area of Santa Barbara. This served the purpose. It wasn't anything fancy, but it was convenient. My google maps took me to another location & I had to call for directions.

We booked a two bedroom room, really weird layout it had a mirror and vanity with two queen beds in one larger room and one queen bed with full bathroom in adjoining bedroom. Carpet was stained, room was dirty no well cleaned. No signal on TV. There was only a wall A/C unit in the larger bedroom, at night smaller...

Great rooms, comfy beds, clean, professional, competent staff, booked online made this a very affordable option for my business trip. So glad I booked here. 7-11 mart and Subway next door, Garrett's for breakfast or lunch on the corner, AM/PM mini mart across the street, Mobil gas station in walking distance on corner, close to the 101 N and S....

We stayed here for one night during a road trip along the California coast. A comfortable and clean motel, not too far from the sea front. I would say it was a little expensive for what you get, but I think that's just Santa Barbara!
