  • 6.6

    Location was great and staff were very nice.

    It's an older hotel that just hasn't been kept up. The room felt dark and dingy and we could hear everything the folks next door were saying.

  • 9.2

    Breakfast was nice. Room was nice. Easy access.

    It would be nice to have a microwave.

  • 10.0

    Nice, clean rooms. Location and staff are fantastic!!!

    Breakfast hours; There should be no need to rise early on vacation.

  • 8.4

    Great location and friendly staff. Nice breakfast to start the day.

  • 9.6

    Great location, clean room, nice decor. Walking distance to lots of good restaurants.

  • 8.2

    Nothing

  • 5.8

    the room was noisy.not as good as shown in the picture. the room we stayed in was on the ground floor right next to the sidewalk. the wall to the sidewalk as a glass wall so it was very noisy. could hear all the noise from the street. there was lot of noise from above our room i think it was their laudry room. the way to the room was from outside the lobby through their parking

  • 10.0

    Beautiful and clean hotel in the perfect location.

  • 9.6

    Staff, location, clean room, comfortable beds. I have stayed here several times while visiting my son who attends UCSB.

    Room rates in Santa Barbara is 100% higher for UCSB graduation weekend.

  • 8.8

    The room and decor we're amazing!

    The bed seemed old and lumpy.

  • 9.2

    Only thing I didn't like was that you had to pay for parking.

  • 8.2

    Location is great - close to restaurants, shopping, short jog to wharf and beach. Staff very kind and attentive. Clean and smartly decorated room, crisply painted, with a lovely authentic exposed brick wall.

    Some kinds of "charm" that I'd rather do without, especially on a biz trip: sounds of snoring, coughing, and other body functions, floors creaking above my room. No gym onsite. No micro in room, making a cup of tea at night was a journey. Even at breakfast, tea selection and hot water supply was inadequate.

  • 6.2

    Most of the staff were really nice and helpful. Breakfast was good. Tiles and look of the hotel was beautiful.

    It was extremely noisy and you could hear people in every room as well as the early morning landscapers. The bed was squeaky. There should be a rubber mat transitioning from the tile to the carpet in the hallway for the rooms so that the rooms near the entry door don't hear all the rolling luggage entering the hallway.
