Property has been a highlight in Santa Barbara for decades. Very clean throughout. Though it is not near the beach, it is a great starting point for anything in the area-UCSB, downtown, oceanfront, shopping, etc. Only minutes from airport or Amtrak.

On a trip from San Diego to SF you need a good nights rest. This place meets this requirement perfectly. Great check in, central location and plenty of parking plus two swimming pools. The rooms are clean, practical but outdated by 10-15 years. Not essential!...More
