Great place to relax and enjoy the Santa Barbara "beat."

Pros: Free breakfast, Close restaurants, Free Internet, Quiet
Loved that they had 24-hour coffee available,free bottled-water in rooms, the morning breakfast in the lobby, and "quiet time" from 10pm to 8am. The hotel is conveniently located on State St close to the train station, beach, and downtown shopping. I will definitely recommend this place to friends.

Hotel Santa Barbara is AWESOME

Pros: Free breakfast, Close restaurants, Free Internet, Quiet, close shopping
Right in the middle of the State St life. Hotel is old and charming and super clean. Our room had a queen bed and was pretty small but I didn't come to SB to hang out in my room. Breakfast in the morning helped save money but it wasn't anything special. You can make your own waffles, that was cool. Overall I would stay there again for the price.

Spent a kids-free weekend here with my best friend. Great location, easy walking to see the sights of Santa Barbara and super cute room. We also loved the free breakfast. I would definitely go back.

Great location

Pros: Free breakfast, Close restaurants, Free Internet, Quiet
This hotel was picked for it's location and because I was celebrating my Birthday in March. The hotel staff was very friendly and the hotel was very clean and the room clean with a view of the street. I liked the view of State street and their was never any problem with noise! I would stay again and I am pretty picky when it comes to hotel's friendlyness and cleaniness...they win with me.

ENJOYBLE EXPERIENCE

Wonderful boutique hotel. Classic elevator straight out of old Paris or San Fran. Excellent location in the middle of restaurants, night life, shopping. Short walk to waterfront. Valet parking was cheap compared to LA. Room size just right and quiet. All the staff helpful and full of smiles.

Big room

I asked for a King upgrade and the room was huge. The people were very nice, and you can't beat the location. Could beat the price though. The elevator is awesome.

Love the Location!

Great location! Out the front door is the heart of Santa Barbara. You are walking distance to the beach, to coffee, restaurants, shopping and night life. You can rent a bike from a bicycle shop a block away and experience even more of Santa Barbara without spending any money on gas (I don't like public transit). Not that you need to except for the exercise. Everything Santa Barbara is within a 10 minute walk from the front lobby. The room was clean and the staff was very friendly. The bed was comfy and I slept like a baby. Service was friendly and responsive. Very good value for the money. This was the most complete Santa Barbara vacation experience I’ve had. I will definitely be back next year. TravisG
