Great location

This hotel is definitely more like a 3 star, not a 4 star. There were no 4 star amenities in my opinion. The entire property was old, weathered, and outdated.

My room had a broken sliding door, the sofa smelled like FEET, the shower curtain was torn, the ceiling had a messily drilled hole (yes, HOLE)... I could go on and on! Internet is also NOT free. Food/beverage service at the pool was slow and we had to call the front desk to bring towels to the pool area. If you are looking for a luxurious romantic getaway, this is definitely NOT the place.

Lovely rooms, super location, useful and enjoyable public spaces. Breakfast was everything you'd want and more. Bed and room were very comfortable except for the lack of air conditioning on a hot hot day.

No air conditioner, no hair dryer. Room was hot and suffocating when we arrived. Should have been aired. A bit spendy weekends.

Quaint older property full of charm. Location can't be beat for Santa Barbara beach access, pier and State street shopping all within walking distance. Staff is really, really good.

Location was great, right across from the wharf. Easy walk along water front, a bit of a long walk into town, restaurants but do-able if you are a walker

Much more dated room than expected. Bathroom layout and lighting odd

The room was spacious.

The room was VERY grimy and poorly maintained. The mattresses sagged, and the bathroom door was chipped and splintering on the bottom. Everything was very old and run-down. The pool had algae growing in it.

I will not stay at this hotel again. Although the lobby was lovely and appeared to be freshly renovated, I have never seen a dirtier or more poorly-maintained hotel room. Although the towels and bed linens were new and sparkling, the walls and bathroom door were covered in decades worth of visible grime. The bottom of the bathroom door was chipped and splintering. The bathtub and base of toilet were very inexpertly and messily caulked, with about an inch thickness of caulking all around anywhere mildew might grow (which led me to think that the bad caulking job was intentional, to hide existing mildew). The room smelled musty and the sofa and cocktail table looked very old, like pre-1970. The AC unit was so loud I...

I came up to Santa Barbara with my mom who wanted to stay at the beach. She picked the hotel and we were both extremely satisfied. The room had 2 queen beds and was large enough and very spacious, The room was complete with all the amenities mentioned in the hotel description. Beds were super comfortable. The only bad part of the trip was that it rained the first day. We will definitely return again! Shopping was great & we had a fabulous brunch at The Anderson's Danish Cafe.

It's location

Poor amenities in the room.

It was very overpriced for what I got. No fridge in the room, a bathroom that felt like a public swimming pool locker room, thin towels, and no pool towels at all.

Service and front desk were very welcoming and helpful.

Walls are thin.

It looks like it's being really renovated. Excited to see what it turns out to be. It was just me and a girl friend of mine, we ended up in a nifty suite looking place that had a king bed, and two queens in a separate room. Could be good for families.

We loved the hotel. Our had an amazing view, amazing patio with flowers and the view, did I already say amazing. For the price, you cannot beat this place for the location to everything and the view.

The only thing I would change is the rooms are outdated. They did update their windows, but they could update the décor and furnishings.

Clean, big enough, minimal but not lacking, free bikes to use, price was reasonable, especially for Santa Barbara

The room had zero sound proofing, so we heard every conversation of people who walked by, an hour long yelling and cursing and door slamming by a neighboring guest, and 8 AM trash trucks dumping, all as though they were IN our room!

I wouldn't stay again because it's important to be able to sleep in a hotel. That's my #1 priority. And if you can't sleep (and I'm a heavy sleeper) because of all the racket, to me, the hotel is a failure, in spite of everything they're doing well. They had louvered windows that didn't even close all the way, both in the back and front of the room. Back let in sounds from the alley (trash trucks and loud dumpsters), front let in loud neighbors.

Prices are average price per night of stay and may not include taxes and fees. "Total" includes our estimate of the taxes and fees. Please verify the total cost on the provider's site before you complete your reservation. Prices and availability are not guaranteed.

Here's why:

We’re not the seller
At KAYAK we don’t set prices, so it’s not possible for us to guarantee what other companies are selling.

We aggregate tonnes of data for you
Our service lets you quickly and easily compare results from hundreds of travel sites at once. In this sense, KAYAK is a search engine and we don't guarantee prices we find.

Why aren’t prices accurate 100% of the time?
Prices on airline seats, hotel rooms and car hires can change frequently. Several people may also be trying to buy the same travel option simultaneously. As a result, you may find on occasion that certain prices are no longer available.
