The location was across the beach from the waterfront and a block from the main drag of downtown SB so it was a perfect location. The hotel grounds, the main lobby, and the areas open to the public were very nice. That being said, that was the only nice part about this hotel. Oh, and the valet were extremely polite. And a 12pm checkout.

The hotel is very large and we walked around for quite a while with our luggage in hand to find the entrance to our building. We we were asked upon check-in if we had a map, but never actually shown where on the map our room was. When we did finally locate the room, adjacent to the elevators (very noisy), the room was horrible. Why we were placed in the disabled accessible room was beyond me for my family of four. At least if there were no more rooms, please let me know upon check-in. I started to make a fuss, but we were only there for one night and to be honest, the lobby was super far and my fiance and I had just carried all the luggage to the room ourselves and were sweating and we had to meet our family for dinner soon. There was no rod to hang our clothes in the closet, but there were several hangars on a hook that I have no clue what I was supposed to do with. The entire bathroom looked like one giant shower with a drain in the middle and the grout looked so dirty, I felt uncomfortable walking in the room at all without my flip flops. The room itself looked as modern/updated as a Motel 6 (no offense Motel 6) but for the cost of the Ritz-Carlton. I was totally unimpressed. I was told there was a free continental breakfast so we headed there the next morning but when my eighteen year old daughter asked the host if this is where we the "free breakfast was," the host corrected her and said, "It's not free-it's complimentary and you need vouchers from the front-desk." Last time I checked, those two words meant the same thing. We all walked over to the concierge desk and I told him we didn't receive vouchers and he responded, "That room doesn't usually qualify for the breakfast. It's only for the upper tiers and Hilton Honors." Shocked by his tone and disbelieving, I repeated the room number and I asked if he were sure. His response was identical and he looked down and continued doing whatever menial task he was doing before. We were dismissed. Never would I stay in this hotel again, no matter what the cost. Unattractive rooms and the worst customer service ever. I loved the Doubletree until this.

We stayed one night and weren't in the room very much but when we were there it was very pleasant if a bit cramped. They put a lot of furniture in a rather small space but the big wall of window and sliding glass door helped make the room feel brighter and the breeze the door let in kept away the weird, antiseptic hotel smell some places just can't get rid of. I really liked the louvered windows set up high on the bathroom walls. Left open during a shower, the window kept the bathroom from getting stuffy. I also liked that the quilt on the bed was a cotton quilt rather than one of those strange scratchy polyester wonders I run into in most other hotels I stay in. We were on the ground floor with a large sliding glass door facing the pool courtyard. There were a couple of patio chairs and a little table on a small patio outside the sliding glass door and we did sit there at one point, watching as our 16 month old son piled rocks on the table. One thing to be aware of, they have old fash...

The hotel staff was very friendly and helpful. The hotel itself is very well kept and the remodel was nicely done. Very good location, close to dining and shopping. You cant beat a 1 min walk to the beach! My wife and I enjoyed our stay and will be returning soon. Maybe next time we will borrow a couple of the beach cruisers and ride along the beach.

In heart of downtown SB, walking distance to Granada Theatre and dining/retail, beautiful Spanish Mission styling. Excellent service at valet parking, front desk, restaurant, and housekeeping. Wonderful canopy bed but definitely used the step stool. Only thing missing was a ottoman to put up your feet.

Absolutely nothing. Expensive but worth the splurge.

Like the setting, the style, the outdoor lounge areas

Poor maintenance -- electrical problems with bathroom fan, bedroom fan, and lighting. Apparently these problems are known and property managers have chosen not to fix them. Desk staff knew about them and just sort of shrugged when we reported the overhead bedroom light randomly turning on during the night. Also, general daily grounds clean up was deficient -- trash not picked up by staff as they walk around; leaves and debris not swept in common areas. Great property but disappointing maintenance and attention to detail -- especially for the price!

Great location. Great breakfast. Room was classy and well decorated. Grounds were beautiful. Walking path along beach is just across the street.

This charming B&B offers lots of quiet spots to get away from it all --- and that quiet time is a little bit sweeter when you are enjoying a homemade treat or two. Breakfast, too, is a lovely, and hearty, affair. We stayed in the Partridge Room, which has the additional charm of offering a private entrance and a small balcony --- making it a favorite among many guests. I would, however, suggest that it is not the best choice for the less agile since enjoying your balcony requires you to climb out your bathroom window. But, there are lots or other less challenging rooms to choose from. The inn is peaceful and immaculate while being located just a few blocks from the heart of Santa Barbara. P.S: If you are looking for a full length mirror, something almost impossible to find in most B&Bs, climb to the third floor. There's also a video library up there.

I looked at reviews by others which suggested an ok place. The place is strange with a clear effort by owners to make the place superficially clean, but the reality is different. It is an old and cheap style place with outdated amenities. Mostly very young couples seemed to be renting the place probably because the rates are relatively cheaper than other places in Santa Barbara. After walking into the room I spotted blood drops on the bathroom floor and on the bed sheet which clearly indicated it had not been changed prior to a new person renting the room! I had rented for 3 nights and left after 1 night and didn't even bother for asking for money back. The front desk was nice and responsive, the place itself is just a crummy place. Don't be fooled by the cheep rates and the raving reviewes

the staff was great, we were greeted with wine, we had to change rooms and they were very accommodating.

there were little gnats or fruitflies in our rooms (we changed rooms and the fruitflies were there too)- the bathrooms could've been cleaner- the tub had hair in it and could use a little bleach in the corners

I liked the proximity to East Beach where the Santa Barbara triathlon was held since I was a participant.

The sliding glass door was heavy and needed to be oiled so it can slide open easier.

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.
