Expect to pay way too much in Santa Barbara. But if you're on a budget and can afford about $75 for a queen size bed, this place isn't too bad. It was fairly clean, however had a bad stain on a lamp shade and some hardware left on a bathroom wall. No fridge or microwave, but there was a hairdryer... More

The room was comfortable but there were some tiny ants in the bathroom. The bed was decent but the Iron was poor. The back patio by the pool was a comical afterthought. The shower head was too low for me.

The staff was nice. The rooms were alright with an acces outside just by the pool. We had a great location for our rooms but the bathrooms were so tiny. And the hotel was far away from the city center which we knew and that's why it was less expensive. The pool area was nice.

The hotel has a great location at the corner of Mission and State St. You are located 5 minutes away from the old mission and easy access to the freeway. The rooms are well kept and modern. Very clean and comfortable for a night

I read reviews on booking dotcom and they were ok but this place is not. It's terrible and I do not recommend. First, when we arrived at 130 pm, they clearly had cleaned rooms available but told us they did not and said we had to come back at 3 pm. When we returned, we were given room 201, directly... More

I wasn't sure what to expect with this accommodation as I had read mixed reviews. We only needed 1 night of accommodation in Santa Barbara, but it was a Saturday night and our options were limited for a family of 5. The motel was easy to find and located only a short walk from downtown. The room itself was great,... More

Hotel is quite modern, good equipped. Staff is friendly and skilled. Room was clean and very comfortable with small private terrace. We had room with direct access to the pool. Pool is big and deep. That was great!

I was really happy to be able to stay here again. The grounds are nice, and rooms look like they were recently redone. Overall this is a very pleasant place to stay. Checkin was easy and the staff very helpful. I don't know when, but I would really like to stay here again.
