Nice room. Great location. Very walkable to beach and shopping. They even have free bike rental. Pretty noisy place. That part of Santa Monica is loud so be prepared.

2/10 Poor

Bad communication between hotels.com and hotel
The stay was okay. The reservation process was lacking. Told I did not have a reservation on my way to hotel. Called back, told they checked the hotels.com portal and the reservation was there. Mind you, my first call was several hours after the reservation was made so plenty of time for them to see it. Thought is was all figured out until I saw my credit card statement. Charged by hotels.com for the stay and then charged again by the hotel even though I prepaid. Spent quite a bit of time trying to resolve this with the hotel. Still not sure if it is. Have to wait for credit card to show charges reversed. Very stressful. This is actually the second time I have had this happen. The first time around, several years ago, reservation was not made and had to find last minute lodging.

Satisfactory in Santa Barbara
Dated hotel, with comfortable rooms and friendly, professional staff. Valet parking efficient, but very costly. Well located and comparably priced.

Over exceeded our expectation
When I say each and every employee was friendly, I mean it. Everyone had amazing iContact and they made sure that we felt comfortable and welcome. We encounter not only the front desk help but the house cleaning and maintenance guy. Thank you for an amazing trip/stay… We will be back! ♥️

Busy location, mediocre lobby and security. Expensive for what is provided. No food service. Three Star is fair rating.
