This hotel is gorgeous. Rooms are beautifully decorated and have comfortable beds. The rooftop terrace with pool is really wonderful. Overall service has been excellent and I cannot wait to return to Santa Barbara for another excuse to stay here. Would definitely recommend this hotel to anyone.

What a great find. Pool on roof (which is a bonus as swimming in the sea comes with the disadvantage of oil!! Bugger to get off) friendly staff good service and a chilled glass by the pool. Everything is on the door step and the marina is a short uber away. Many thanks will come back next time in town....

Stayed here for two nights with our family of four in a junior suite. Customer service exceeded expectations. Property is charming and close to everything downtown. Clean and lovely.

What a spectacular place! Awesome staff and prefect location! Don't forget to check out the great rooftop pool! We spent 4 days in Santa Barbara and Canary made it special! We came into Santa Barbara 2 days early and found our place at the Canary. Quick walk to state street and prefect place to find plenty to do and eat.
