Pros - The hotel is near the freeway and beautiful Santa Barbara is only a few miles away. The front desk staff is friendly and helpful. The hotel entry and the courtyard are well decorated and inviting.
Cons - Hotel needs serious upgrades. Cracks in the bathroom and bugs coming through. Hotel charges over $16 a day for fees above the $135 a day weekend rate paid for via the living social deal...
The are surrounding the hotel is a bit sketchy and there are no immediate amenities in the area such as gas, food, etc.
The breakfast voucher only allow for one item and just getting a cup of coffee was a challenge at the sunset grill inside the restaurant.
There was so much noise coming from the room above we were awakened in the night and early morning.. sounded like an office or yoga studio above the room.
The spa tub aka jacuzzi is tiny and has a limit of 3 persons.
I would not recommend this location even for a short getaway. less

We agree, our hotel provides an outstanding location, with close proximity to Santa Barbara, family friendly Carpinteria and area beaches. Thank you for taking the time to recognize our friendly staff as well as mentioning our inviting tropical courtyard. The fees you mentioned are actually Tax still owed on a pre paid room. In addition to 3 restaurants, as well as our own onsite, Sunset Grille, there is a gas station less than 1/2 a mile away. We encourage our guests to notify our Front Office team if there should be any excessive noise levels after hours. We hope you will have the opportunity to stay with us again.
