The rooms were supposed to be non smoking but all the pillows smelled like cigarettes and cigarette butts were found on the rooms patio. The jacuzzi hours could be extended so guest who are out sightseeing can enjoy them. Also gusts should be reminded to please keep early morning noise down until after 7 am. We’re were constantly awakened starting at 4 am by multiple guests talking in the next rooms, slamming room doors, cars starting etc.

They gave us a very nice welcome and a good bottle of pinot noir from the person checking us in. The room was quiet and very nice if a bit dated but overall, was a very good value. Will definitely return to this hotel.

A wonderful little oasis in Santa Barbara, so easy to get in and out of the State St area and then enjoy the peace and greenery of our hotel. Loved the garden atmosphere and the two pools/hot tubs. The staff was completely lovely and helped us figure out exactly where to visit. Would definitely come back!

The deal that was offered. They had no idea what we were talking about when I asked them about the chocolate tour. The sparkling bottle of wine was wyclef (4.99 $retail). Two mini chocolate bars and the wine tasting we never got too because it’s not close to the hotel at all. I thought the deal was Going to be more personal.... my fault I guess for expecting better.

The wall air conditioner was extremely noisy, so this is not a place for light sleepers. Lovely pool and garden area surrounded by the buildings. However our experience was spoiled by a man smoking continuously on his patio area which was very close to the pool where people were trying to enjoy a relaxing afternoon. The hotel definitely needs to have a designated smoking area and not where the rest of the guests are relaxing and do not enjoy second hand smoke!
