Nice place but way too expensive for what I would classify as a 3 star hotel. The service was solid and the rooms were clean. Much of the hotel feels dated. The rate was about two to three times what one would expect to pay for such a hotel.

Hotel's Favourite
This hotel is so beautiful and cozy. The staff is above and beyond exceptional!!! We were greeted outside as soon as we pulled up. The front desk took their time, explained our stay and all amenities that were included. We had an issue with our room and they did not hesitate to make it right. Breakfast is served at The Round Table and our server Stacy was the nicest person we met on the whole trip. We also dined at The Set and the food and service was no disappointment. Short walk to the beach and the hotel grounds are delightful to walk around too. Ping pong table, cornhole and foosball table for entertainment. We will be coming back with our kiddos.

Though located in a prime location, the rooms were seriously outdated. My balcony with partial ocean view consisted of an uneven narrow balcony, with a view of the parking lot, unless I was able to get a glimpse of the ocean through the trees. I am a Hilton Honors member and with resort fees for 2, upgrade to partial ocean view, and my dog fee… it came out to $800 for one night. Also, they had scheduled maintenance so the water was cut off at 10am, an hour before checkout.

We enjoyed our stay here very much. Our room had a wonderful balcony overlooking the Pacific Ocean. It is a bout a 15 minute walk to the wharf along the the sea front. We ate breakfast at the hotel and it was delicious. Everything about our stay was wonderful

Stayed in a king size suite with a relative and found the room to be comfortable. It was sparse lacking an extra chair and/or sofa which it was supposed to have. We had one chair, not including the office chair over the desk. I personally felt the price of the room was extremely high for the lack of luxury, although the view was beautiful after walking out onto the balcony. The room service was good, the staff always there to please. We had brunch on Sunday and it was not what I would classify as great, it was simply average. I would have like to have seen more variety, waffles, pastries, fruit, variety of yogurt. All in all, the hotel is on beautiful grounds, scenery from the balcony is lovely. The rooms definitely need to be updated as well as the showers which I found difficult to start, then told at front desk they are in the process of updating. The markings on the shower were off through use and did indeed need to be updated. Do I think the hotel needs some TLC updating, yes.

Nancy S. Thank you for selecting Hilton Santa Barbara Beachfront Resort for your visit to Santa Barbara. We are very pleased to know you enjoyed the beautiful view from the balcony. However, it's disappointing to learn the furnishings in the guestroom did not meet your expectations and the shower was difficult to operate. Patio Furniture, Sofa Beds and other enhancements have been put on hold until now due to the strains of Covid. The team is very pleased that the 2022 Budget includes a variety of exciting projects. We appreciate your business and hope you will consider returning to the resort, if and when your plans include a return visit to the area.
