10/10 Exceptional

Great one night stay in Santa Barbara.
When we checked it about 7pm Ben was very nice and great to talk to. He showed and offered us coffee, fresh fruit, and fresh baked cookies! Of course, we couldn't resist those cookies. At checkout this morning about 7:30am the person at the front desk was also very helpful and gave us detailed walking directions to the SB Amtrak Station. Our room was very clean and well kept up. Everything in the room worked fine, and the shower had plenty of hot water and a good strong shower flow. The large outdoor pool looked very nice, but since we arrived late and left early today we didn't get to get in the pool this time. We're going to be coming back to this hotel in February so we hope to spend a couple nights at the hotel and get to use their pool and hot tub.

Comfort cleanliness value
This was the perfect central location for a week stay in Santa Barbara. It’s close to the Harbor, downtown and the freeway. A room was clean, the bed was comfortable, the air conditioner worked great, and the service was good. In addition, it offers good value for an expensive city.

Great spot in Santa Barbara
The Franciscan Inn has all the basics I enjoy when visiting in Santa Barbara. Great location ... walking distance to many restaurants, beach and other areas. Nice pool, rooms are comfortable and clean, and it's reasonably quiet too!
