I stayed at this hotel last week and had a pretty good experience. However, the price was high. It is located in a very quiet neighborhood of Santa Barbara, it’s mostly business so there isn’t much noise at night. The lobby is nice and checking in was easy. The lobby had a little gift shop also. This hotel is very large but there isn’t that much parking, my room was on the 2nd floor right above the lobby. The exterior of the hotel is very well kept up. Upon entering my room I was very happy with it, there were two beds and a recliner chair, a desk and tv with a DVD player. Everything inside the room was spotless and nice. The bed was comfortable. The ac/heater was kinda funny it was either too hot or too cold, but I didn’t really need it. The only thing that I noticed was the bathroom was kinda funny and not quite as clean as I had expected since everything else was super clean but it wasn’t bad. There is no free breakfast like most bed westerns have but there is a restaurant on site. Overall this hotel was very nice and I would probably stay there again if I was ever in need of a hotel in Santa Barbara. less
