The hotel is not really in a convienient spot.

Posted Mar 29, 2014
You have to drive if you want to go to any of the places on State Street or restaurants. The room was musty and cold, toilet was low and the floors were not flat, they were on a slope. Nothing special, the price was too high for what it was.

Disappointed

Posted Mar 27, 2014 on Hotels.com
We have stayed in this hotel many, many times when it was Country Inn By the Sea & loved everything about it. When ownership changed we continued to stay there but it's never been the same! The manager/owner is not a hospitable person. We last had stayed there in 2010 & had booked several rooms. I don't remember the details but it didn't go well. We needed to go back to Santa Barbara this week & because of the location & price decided to give it another chance! We won't go back! Couldn't check in early, room looked clean but didn't feel clean, coffee not available before 7:30am, lounge area not available until 7:30am, and the same inhospitable attitude at the front desk. Oh how I wish for the days of Country Inn By the Sea!

Cute boutique hotel

Posted Mar 24, 2014 on Hotels.com
This was a last minute booking that worked out perfectly as it was around the corner from a dinner meeting. The front desk attendant was really sweet and helpful. The room decor is trendy, cute, comfortable, and most importantly, clean. The room and bathroom were each quite spacious...If you're in Santa Barbara on business or on a trip where you don't require resort style amenities, then this hotel is perfect.

Normal, and that's a good thing.
