2/10 Terrible


Traveled with family and small children
Disliked: Cleanliness, staff & service, amenities, property conditions & facilities
Filthy room with worn furniture (chips at the base of the dresser), dirt on the floor, pipes not working and no hot water upon arrival, thin walls, no gym (golds gym that they provide access to is gross), no attendees present in parking/having to wait 15 minutes or more for someone to show up, inappropriately hosting a business event over the weekend making the roof inaccessible. This hotel is also not particularly child friendly or accessible — very little safe place to maneuver a wheelchair or stroller at the entrance, and no changing table in either public gender bathroom (before their extremely relatively late check in time of 4p, I ended up changing my five month in public on a bench in the mezzanine because there was no safe and private place to do so). Unimaginably rude staff including a front desk asst manager who said my best option was to cut my vacation short and “just go home” if I didn’t like the hotel. Really sad and pathetic what’s passing for four star these days.

Ok but probably our only visit here.
This place is nice but very expensive for what it is. We splurged on a suite and it still felt crammed and kind of old fashioned. The rooftop is super nice but there's no service up there so you're just on your own without drinks or food service. Nice views though. Pool could be warmer. No hot tub. Valet parking only.

What I liked most about the hotel was its unique moorish architectural style with historical details. The use of natural wood, stones, and tiles are not only beautiful but also healthy for our bodies. Our room was sunny and airy with a high ceiling. I also liked very much the rooftop swimming pool with fantastic mountain views close by and ocean views faraway. There was some problem with its heavy curtains' iron rings; they won't move smoothly when we open and close them. Initially, the vacuum cleaning of the wooden floor was not thoroughly done but upon my request, it was promptly done. What I did not like was the apparent absence of recycling. There were no recycling bins in the room and hotel building.

We were in Santa Barbara for our anniversary. The hotel is nice and the location is awesome. Only two issues: -The gentleman that checked us in was not very nice and it felt like he was just rattling off his regular spiel to get it over with. - The second is that there were so many added fees! I knew there were going to be some, but it was a lot!
