Must confess I loved the Fess

Posted Jun 30, 2015
Stayed here for two nights coming back from a trip to San Francisco. Was upgraded to an ocean view room during check-in. What a great way to start the trip. The hotels proximity to the ocean was awesome. Right across the street from a nice not crowded beach. Each day went to the ocean and then from the ocean to the pool and from the pool to the jacuzzi. Because the hotel was so nicely placed near everything we didn't get to eat at any of the hotel restaurants as i yelped the places we wanted to eat. The hotel had tennis, basketball and shuffle board. Each for free and you could rent bikes if you needed. It was walking distance to the wharf where we had an incredible lunch. It seems the hotel recently went through renovation but I thought the bathroom in our room was a little dated. Other than that, it was a perfect place to stay and a great way to end a vacation.

Nice close to ocean

Posted Jun 27, 2015
I had a partial ocean view I want expecting. I like how close it is to everything. You can take a trolly for 50 cents to State street, where all the shopping and entertainment is. The restaurants food is yummy too.

Great place for the whole family

Spacious is the word that comes to mind... Rooms, grounds, pool, etc. love having the balcony and what a view! Water pressure was an issue but we stayed one night so it didn't hinder our stay. Kids want to stay again and so do we.

Service from the staff was excellent. They went out of their way to help us and welcome us to Santa Barbara. Would definitely recommend a stay in this hotel.

Overpriced

Posted Jun 15, 2015
Pros: Location
Cons: Spartan amenities in bathrooms which are also just average at best. Limited room service options
Location: Beach is across the street and State street, where the shops are, is about a mile away. Nice walk
Phenomenal location and good facilities. Try to get a second floor room or at least one removed from the lounge area. We were literally next door so it was a bit noisy. Beds are very comfortable.
