Stay here!
We had a great, clean room. Everything was comfortable, nice and the staff took great precautions during the COVID crisis. Would highly recommend! Amazing location! We were able to walk everywhere the entire trip.

Great Visit to Santa Barbara
The staff was friendly and helpful. The location was perfect as my husband and I wanted to walk on State St. and find a restaurant for lunch. The hotel is also close to the Funk Zone—many opportunities for wine tasting. We will definitely return to Santa Barbara!

Fair 4.0
The price for parking! And then no parking! The bed was NOT comfortable. The air didn't work! I dont plan on staying there again!

Great location
It's a little noisy, but that depends on who's staying there. Their Covid setup has changed the breakfast buffet to a sack breakfast, but if you pick it up as you check out you're stuck with a cold burrito or a cold egg sandwich so opt for the bagel if you're planning to grab & go. Nice size room. Close to lots of restaurants. Good parking. Great for a stopover.
Lauri, us1 night trip
Fair 4.0
Even though no "stay at home" order was issued, the hotel staff took it upon themselves to oust us by waking everyone at 6 a.m. and telling us we had to be out by 7 a.m. Oh and conveniently no breakfast either day. Excuse was covid, even though there was not 1 confirmed case anywhere in Santa Barbara at that time.

Five star at 3 star pricing.
Five star at 3 star prices! Awesome. Thank you for preserving a part of our country’s history!

Worth the price.
This is a great hotel if you want to be in the middle of the night life, close to State Street and the harbor for a very reasonable price. Not so great if you don't want to hear loud drunks and revelers walking by and yelling at three in the morning. Hotel staff was great, breakfast is mediocre, room was recently remodeled but because it was first floor street side it is loud and the windows are blocked out.

We always stay here when possible when we travel to Santa Barbara. Great hotel in a great location. Walking distance to all the fun.

Very shocked and disappointed customer!
The 1st night our room was on 1st floor with windows painted and locked. Could not see out and could not open for fresh air. Groups of people walked by and sang and partied all night long. Turned out we were situated directly on the back parking lot. I was woken up at 12:30am, 3:39am and 6:15am from loud talking and partying. Also, the furnace kept starting up with a loud hum all night. This is by far the worst room we’ve ever had the misfortune to stay in, and we paid $279 + tax + fees for it. Yes, you heard right and this was their Senior Citizen rate. We were given a different room on the 2nd floor for our 2nd night when I complained to the front desk the next morning. When I got back home, I called Hotels.com to ask for a complete CASH refund for that 1st devastating and outrageous night, but all they could come up with was a coupon for $152 to use at another Hotels.com hotel! Yes, we are a very shocked and disappointed Hotels.com customer!!
