Located in the uber-hip Funk Zone, Hotel Indigo scores high marks for location. But guests should not be allowed to use the rooms until the ludicrous shower situation is remedied. The "shower" in the hip bathroom has a curtain, but no physical wall to drain the water. Our bathroom flooded both nights, the water pooled out to the entire room, and we used every towel to prevent the water from reaching our bed. It was a safety issue for us. This is such an easy engineering exercise that it's ridiculous to actually have guests stay until this changes. On the plus side, staff was upbeat and professional, and the added treat of Stearns Wharf salt water taffy eased the uncomfortable physical challenges of the room.

Dear Devo18,
Thank you for providing valuable feedback following your recent stay; we appreciate your suggestions and do have a positive solution. Currently the hotel is in the process of remodeling each bathroom with a new design to greatly improve the water slope efficiency of the showers. The European standing shower bathroom size will remain compact to continue operating with a small ecological footprint as a certified Green Engage business. Your comments have been shared with the appropriate department since this particular case seems more extreme than usual. We are happy you enjoyed our central location and explored a bit of our neighborhood. Please contact me directly at the hotel if you have any further questions or if you would like to make a reservation when the bathroom remodel is complete. Thank you again for the review!

Wonderful staff, cute room, and great location!!! The concierge was very helpful in directing us to fun local places and providing us with coupons for two for one wine tastings. Overall a really awesome experience at this hotel.

We recently stayed at the beautiful , modern Hotel Indigo in Santa Barbara. 500' from the beach, pier and lots of great Resturaunt's. They had the best WiFi at 30mb up and down and have some of the nicest staff anywhere, including the valet and front desk staff. Lots of modern glass, white and grey decor and one of the prettiest garden patios anywhere. Super comfy bed and quiet.
Only one tiny issue, it has a tiny bathroom 5-6" x 5'-6" wide; the shower door swings open to use the toilet. It worked for us but if you are a person who needs lots of space, you might reconsider. Fortunately the room has good lighting for the girls to do their makeup, nice tv, plenty of wall outlets and in room coffee.

Good location for shopping, wine tasting and beach going. Room and restroom were small, but functional. Neat outdoor communal spaces on clear days/nights. Friendly and helpful staff who offered perfect suggestions.

Great front desk service-- professional and personal. Ciela was awesome. She even made dinner reservations for us and the restaurant was top notch.

Great location, easy to walk to stores, restaurants and the beach.

Our room had a small patio off of the back side and it was quiet and clean.

Finally, we took advantage of the hotel bicycles and took them out for a ride one afternoon. Wonderful time.

We would stay here again in a heartbeat.
