We loved everything about our stay from the pleasant staff at the front desk to the valet that provided us waters before we drove away. We were promptly greeted by the valet, he handled our bags and showed us to the front desk. There the staff checked us in and offered recommendations for our stay. When we got to our...

Had to go out and buy my own tea bags this morning , the hotel having every flavour tea bag , but no English breakfast. Having stayed in San Francisco , Monterey, pismo beach and in Santa Barbara they seamed that they have never seen basic tea bags . If you like tea don't stay here

Stayed here with my two sons last weekend, very friendly staff and the hotel was very nice for the price. Good location and great view. I do think the breakfast is lacking, I know it's only slated as being "continental" but if they could add eggs and bacon/sausage it would be fantastic. I can't imagine that being much more of...

I would have given this hotel a 4.5 if it was possible....Just a few small suggestions, but first, the positives... This newly renovated hotel is even more gorgeous than the pictures suggest...Inside and out. The decor is quality. The rooms are gorgeous, spacious and comfortable. All staff we encountered were helpful, courteous and welcoming, especially the cleaning/maintenance & restaurant staff....

The Hotel was very comfortable as well as the very accommodating Staff. Quentin, Gwen Jimmy, Dakota all went out of their way to make our stay very nice although it was only for one night. I highly recommend this Hotel and its staff.

I stayed here once for business purposes, and I got an ocean view room on the top floor. The hotel was recently renovated, so everything looks new and clean. There was also free wifi (not as fast) in every room, so that was a plus. They also gave me a free breakfast, but the options was limited: oatmeal, granola, yogurt,...

Not cheap, but you get what you pay for. Classy hotel right across from East Beach. Friendly and helpful staff, clean, well appointed rooms. Hot tub and pool area were really nice. (I'm very picky about hotel hot tubs, and I had no reservations getting in this one). Great breakfast in the morning--loved the oatmeal :) I'd definitely go back...when...

Hidden fees. Full disclosure: I booked through Orbitz. And my $260 night room was $350 after taxes and extra person fee. Extra person fee of $70/night! Hotel said they don't charge that. But Orbitz sure did. We had two adults and two kids in double queen room. Seemed unreasonable. Just saying- pay attention We've been going to Santa Barbara a...
