Very clean rooms. Walking distance to Sterns Wharf and State Street. Rooms are very comfortable and breakfast is a nice added bonus. Great location, park across the street. Pool area looks very inviting.

HOTEL’S FAVOURITE REVIEW
Reviewed 3 weeks ago

This hotel is awesome! You can't beat the location. We got a nice large room since it was a handicapped accessible room with a roll in shower. The one complaint is there is no barrier in the shower so water gets all over the floor. I would suggest adding some type of rubber barrier or something just to corral the...

Not a good value. 2nd floor rooms have mediocre view of the water and should be cheaper than 3rd floor rooms. I appreciated real glass glasses for evening drinks. And decent coffee! Even fresh coffee 24 hours a day in the lobby!

Hi Agnes, Thanks so much for the kind words about a few of our amenities. Glad you enjoyed them. As for the view/value concern you mentioned, we fully understand the partial obstruction created by the "Protected" bird roosting trees, however, most of our king bedded harbor side rooms offer magnificent views of the harbor from the balconies. See you next...

You can see work going on at the hotel for continuing improvement. Wonderfully located across the harbor in Santa Barbara. Nice pier you can drive out on for shopping and food. First 90 minutes free when we were there. Very nice and helpful staff. Good breakfast. You won't go wrong here.

Hi Pam, It was great to meet you and thanks for the kind words. We hopefully only have a few months left of our renovation program, and then we'll have a brand new hotel sitting here on the waterfront. See you next time I'm sure!! HJRobbins - GM

This location is awesome. The rooms are clean. There is an elevator. The temperature in the room is cool and hard to maintain. Found an extra blanket in the closet. Hot water does not always work. Breakfast is top notch. Service at front desk is super.

I've always been curious about this property, after so many times I've driven/walked past it, whenever I'd visit Santa Barbara; well, the time has finally come. I had booked a one-bedroom suite, since hotels.com had a great bargain for that type of room. I went ahead and checked in, the receptionist was very articulate about the property amenities, services, and...

I was excited to stay in Santa Barbara and thought I would give this hotel a try, since the price was okay. The room was small but clean. Around 4:30 AM I found a leak in my room that was coming in from the walls.

Hi Amanda, Thanks for giving us a chance, and glad to resolve that leak issue for you. Those rains that we so badly needed, also help us find a few little problems like yours, that we were able to correct. We'll see you again after the renovations are complete, and can't wait to hear your feedback. Enjoy Mammoth, and happy...

The room rate was less than I expected to pay for the hotel's location. Christian and Citiali at the front desk were very professional, always a smile and very helpful with our requests. We visited with a large group of friends and the hotel was very accommodating. Francisco (parking/security) even left cones out for some of our special cars. Breakfast...

Loved the hotel and it's closeness to waterfront. Checked in, put on sandals and was strolling beach within minutes. Surprisingly sunset was over mountains behind us and sunrise was over ocean. Loved it! Staff were very friendly and helpful.
