Excellent, friendly knowledgeable staff, from front desk to maids to pool service man. Clean, well appointed room with nice lagoon view. Good breakfast with a much appreciated 6am opening time. Will return for another stay.

Last minute plans to Santa Barbara, CA. I actually helped supply the rebar steel for this hotel back in the 1980's when it was built. This was a wonderful stay, 2 nights during the heat wave on the coast October 3rd-5th. The staff was very pleasant and professional. The breakfast had a nice selection of items to satisfy anyone.

I asked for a quiet room but my room was in a wing perpendicular to the nearby freeway. I would have preferred a room in the wing that faced away from the freeway. Maybe I did not make reservations early enough... One other thing: There were five pillows in the room, but all were too large for me. Why not...

This property is super clean - rooms and the grounds. It is fun because there is a small swimming with tables and chairs. There is a large pond on the ground that is viewable from the inside rooms and the swimming pool - the pond provides endless entertainment if you like to watch the ducks, turtles and fish!

We booked a night here at the last minute using an Expedia app. We were given the worst small room on the end of the hotel, and had to endure the noise of a major road adjacent the room all night. It was clean, but the bed was broken and made major noises with the slightest move. I have a...

The misses are a few: When a neighbor turns on their shower, it is loud. The breakfast is lacking a few more hot items like waffles and eggs, etc. It isn't as convenient to the city as the hotels on Upper State. Only In N Out is within walking distance (don't care for IHOP). However, this one does have charm....
