I didn't know what to expect which made our stay that much better. The room was nice sized and the staff very helpful. The location had perfect access to State Street, the pier and warf. We walked to shoreline park and to the top of City College Staduim (great view). Take a 15 minute drive the the Douglas Family Preserve. Great town and a great little hotel.

We stayed for 2 nights and we had room 241 on the second floor. It was an offered upgrade, which we had to pay for, and it overlooked the sand and water. It was worth it though. Nice big blacony. The room itself was very well appointed. Great bed and pillows. Bathroom was very spacious and the complimentary shampoo, etc., was top class. There was a shower cap included, which is great. It's quite a long walk to town, but worth it. Wear comfortable shoes. There are so many fabulous shops and restaurants. Staff very friendly, room spotlessly clean and it was very quiet, considering there was a street out front. The pier is just across the street and worth investigating. We would stay there again for sure.

Room Tip: make sure the room is far enough away from the elevators and ice machine.

We spent a weekend away and enjoyed this hotel very much. It is located right across from the water & the pier, and just off State Street. You can walk everywhere. The rooms are nicely appointed, and the service is very good.

Room Tip: We didn't have an ocean view, but one that looked up the channel. It was quite nice and saved so...

Stayed two nights in this beautiful property that's perfectly located near many of Santa Barbara's popular attractions: State Street shopping and dining, the Santa Barbara Courthouse, Stearns Wharf, Shoreline Park, etc. and just a short, scenic drive to Mission Santa Barbara and the lovely town of Montecito.The hotel staff was helpful, the room was wonderful (upgraded to an oceanfront room and we were glad we did), and the food at the hotel was great as well. We also had several great meals in the downtown area and just loved staying at a really nice hotel that was close to everything. Didn't do any of the wine tasting since it was a family trip, but the Santa Barbara wine trail looked fantastic. Would definitely recommend this hotel to families or couples.

This place was perfect. We went during a slow season (Feb.) so I'm not sure, but parking may be an issue if it's busy. There was plenty of parking while we were here though. The breakfast at their restaurant was the best breakfast I've ever had. They even make their own fresh handmade jelly. It was all very good and pretty reasonably priced. Also, the tons of options for food on the nearby wharf was fantastic and the food at all of the places we ate at were great. The hotel will mention some to you if you ask. We really enjoyed the large space of the rooms and also the balcony was enjoyable to use and everything was kept immaculate on the grounds and in the hotel and rooms. We will definitely stay there again when we are in Santa Barbara and recommend it to everyone.
