Amazing outdoor area with fire pit overlooking the ocean. Great sidewalks to walk near beach area. Santa Barbara was clean, quaint, and beautiful!!! I only had the one night to stay, but will definitely return to further explore the Santa Barbara area!

The views from the balcony were AMAZING! We love visiting Santa Barbara for it's beauty and vibes. I almost didn't want to leave the room it was so awesome...we got to see the sun rise and fall right from our room. We had a normal looking King size bed room facing the ocean of course, the bathrooms seemed to be in descent working order (we did have an issue with the toilet in our room, but the staff was on it and fixed it right away). I don't have anything special to say about the room...other than that BALCONY! LOL. The staff was great, helpful and attentive, no issues there. It's certainly more costly for a room with a view, but you're in Santa Barbara...YOLO

Poor customer service. Lowest quality food at the restaurant and no parking available which was really shocking and inconvenient. They gave us a room right above the cafe at $500/night but people were seating in the cafe till 2 am talking out loud, so my wife couldn’t sleep because of noise. The room wasn’t really worth more than 150/night and if I knew these issues I would never ever stay at this property. I’m planning to call the bank and dispute the charge on my card
