Hi Maria, Glad you enjoyed your trip to Santa Barbara and found our hotel convenient and comfortable for you. As for the noise, glad you were able to experience one of our brand new rooms, facing the harbor, but occasionally Cabrillo Blvd gets very busy with so many people some noise is heard. We even installed specialty windows to reduce any noise, but obviously it gets loud periodically. I understand the 1 star was entered in error, but we still can't wait to have you return. See you soon I heard :) HJRobbins - GM

Very disappointed

14/09/2019 Rachel P, Phoenix, Arizona

Many issues with this hotel. The pictures are very misleading. We booked a king bed harbor view. Checked in and went up to our room, we were given two queens and the view is BARELY of the harbor. Not ... more

Hi Rachel, I'm so sorry you had to deal with a collection of errors we made causing you to be so displeased. As you can see from most of our reviews, things are done quite well on a regular basis and most guests enjoy their time with us. However, we did find one picture that inaccurately reflected our rooms and made that correction on our website. Unfortunately, had you received the room you were originally promised, you would have seen that many of our harborside rooms offer the views, EXACTLY as seen on our website. We have NO intent to mislead anyone ever. That is why we indicate "harborside" instead of "harborview" as some views here are partially obstructed. Please contact me if you see this so we can do something special for you to make up for your horrendous experience. The contact info on your booking was unable to be used to contact you directly. Hope to speak with you soon. Harvey Robbins GM

Our sincerest apologies for your unpleasant stay with us. We did find a stained shower curtain, as well as a little grout that needed some cleaning, but we are pleased to say, no mold is or was present in the room. We are confident the sheets were changed, but since we do not iron/press our sheets they may seem slightly wrinkled if not pulled tight enough when making the bed. We are sorry you felt so uncomfortable, but please know everything you mentioned has been addressed and corrected. Thank you for bringing a few of our deficiencies to our attention. It just makes us want to work harder. We might have gotten a bit complacent while dealing the busy summer here in Beautiful Santa Barbara. HJRobbins - GM
