Fair 4.0
5 stars for the exterior but 1 star for interior
The hotel looks charming on the outside but as soon as we entered the room, we were let down by one disappointment after another. Before coming here, I already knew this was an older property so wasn’t expecting much, but it was even worst than my expectations. The interior and furniture are extremely outdated. The smell was musky and the carpet just felt filthy. Several lights in the room were either burnt or weren’t located near an outlet so they were useless. Being an older hotel, the locations of the outlets were not convenient and some of them were so loose we couldn’t plug in our phones. The bathroom door couldn’t even lock and we had to constantly tell our kids not to open it when someone was inside. The heaters were so loud we all couldn’t sleep the first night and woke up with a headache. Worst of all, there were ants in the bathroom! On our first day, I saw 2 or 3 ants and just tried to ignore them, but on the second day I woke up in the middle of the night to use the bathroom and they were all over sink. Gross! I almost never leave bad reviews but this time I just had to so the management can address those issues. We travel a lot and have stayed in several hotels over the world but this is probably our worst experience. It’s such a shame because this hotel has a lovely grounds and so much potential. I’ll give it some credits: the front desk was quick to respond to our requests and the breakfast at Live Oak Restaurant was satisfying.

Musky smell!
The room is in much need of updating. Very musky smell in the room and needed to be aired out or the carpet replaced.
Mary, us2 night family trip
Good 6.0
We had room 335 it’s next The the elevator. Because of the sliding glass door and the thin walls you can hear everything that is going on outside. Including people pulling their luggage on the tile walkway or housekeeping vacuum running in the morning. You can also hear the road noise when inside. The beds are firm & the pillows are just ok at best. The room had automatic Motion sensors so the lights kept turning on in the middle of the night until you actually had to turned off the light.

Poor 2.0
RUN AWAY
WOW. What waste of money. The outdated room from the 70's has not been changed or remodeled. The bed was horrifically hard and lumpy- might as well sleep on the floor or in my car. The wall paper in the bathroom was crumbling, the ugly brown tile and shower doors had to go. The AC unit will keep you up all night with its loud VROOM. No breakfast, no parking. STAY AWAY.

This is a MUST location. Hidden GEM

Exceptional 10.0
Very good hotel in a nice location. You can walk to Mission Santa Barbara, as we did, if you don't mind the uphill incline. The restaurant attached to the hotel has exceptional dining choices and is reasonably-priced, Our one frustration is that the hotel advertises a guest laundry, but there is only one washer and one dryer, which is insufficient for a place of this size. Otherwise, we enjoyed our stay here very much.
