“Manager was SO helpful.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 14 February 2012

The hotel itself isn't the most modern, however very adequate and good for the price. The restaurant/bar was surprising nice and the food was delicious. I stayed over New Year's Eve and could hear people closing doors outside..the walls aren't the thickest. But, most places are loud on NYE anyway.

BUTTTT, I ended up leaving a necklace in the room and didn't notice for 2 days after I left. I had taken it off and put it on the nightstand so I'm assuming it fell behind the nightstand. I called the front desk and they put me in contact with the manager. He called me an hour later and said they had the necklace and would send it to me. I got it in the mail 2 days later. You don't find this type of service everywhere. Very happy with the staff and overall I had a great time!!

3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 5 January 2012

Adequate, no more/no less. Everything tends to be expensive in Santa Barbara, so I can't blame the price on the place. Beds reasonably comfortable, rooms clean. No breakfast, no gym or exercise room, and the pool was beautiful but apparently not cleaned during our early January stay there. It was warm enough to swim, which made the floating bugs all the more annoying. The receptionists were very nice, but not always available--I was on gold with a question from my room for so long, I hung up.

Got into town around sunset...did some people watching on the PCH and Old Downtown Sate Street...what an amazing show and nonstop action area! Enjoyed the area then backtracked up State Street to the "nice looking Lemon Tree place."
Solid performer each time at the front desk. Helpful and friendly!
Older property that has had a full renovation...spacious grounds and superior pool area...great place to hang out.
We did not try the restaurant/bar area but it looked semi popular at Happy Hour (5-7PM).
Towels were a bit rough (I like 'em that way) and beds were very comfy. Typical Southern California lousy water pressure in the shower...
On State Street away from the crowds!
I will stay again in a heartbeat!

Room Tip: Back lower rooms are nice and quiet...back up to gardens!
