While this hotel is not fancy or on the water, the rooms are comfortable, clean and quiet. Santa Barbara offers cheap parking around town. So parking was free at this hotel, and it was easy and cheap around town. We were greeted by Ramon who was so kind, welcoming and informative. He gave us milk & cookies at 5:30 after our check in. The lobby always had fresh coffee. The on-site Restaurant offered a unique cuisine with an Asian flair, and great desserts. Ramon gave us Restaurant recommendations for Brophys on the harbor which was perfect. Everyone we encountered at this hotel was friendly. This hotel is a cluster of 2 story buildings and each room has its own entry from outside.

I have stayed at this property 3 times recently. I am typically a hotel snob and prefer the higher end properties. I feel that for the area and accommodations this is a good value. Clean rooms, nicely appointed and friendly staff.

Have stayed here several times, as my daughter attends UCSB. Each time we have stayed we've been pleased with the cleanliness of rooms, location and the attentive staff. We will definitely be staying here again and I would recommend this place to friends and family

Nice and convenient place to stay if u have cottage hospital business. Very close to hospital and affliated rehabilitation facility. I would stay here again for proximity to hospital and quite poolside respite

I have to say of all the places we've stayed, this room had by far the cleanest-smelling bed sheets we've ever experienced. What bliss!! Great location in down-town, walking distance from coffee shops and restaurants.
