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.

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!More

We drove in and parked. I didn’t see a hotel van that could serve as a shuttle. The airport is near UCSB, about 10 miles from downtown. An Uber would be your best bet.
