4/10 Fair

Way overpriced but that's California
A great location...right across the street from the ocean...and the building was gorgeous. However, the walls were paper thin (could hear people upstairs and in the hallway), lots of noise in the interior parking lot at 7 AM that woke us up, and the restaurant was so "fufu" (a menu that we couldn't recognize 90 percent of the dishes or ingredients) that we didn't know what to order. Way overpriced but that's California.

I can't say enough good things about this property. All the staff were very friendly and helpful. Our room was clean, and the property was in great shape. The ocean view was excellent. This has to be one of the best hotels we have ever stayed at. We would not hesitate staying here again when returning back to Santa Barbara.

10/10 Exceptional

This is a first class property in nearly every way. The staff were very nice and helpful, the location across from the beach was unbeatable and the facilities were very well maintained, both in and out of the actual rooms. It was very quiet and the bed was comfortable. There was a lovely little balcony and, although mine overlooked a parking lot, it was still nice to be able to throw open a door and have a place to sit in what turned out to be lovely weather during my visit. The sort of "classical" style of the place may not be to everyone's taste, but you can't fault it for this. The clientele seemed a bit older, so it seems to fit with a stereotypical idea of what that age group might consider upscale. My only true minor ding on this hotel is that, while it's a beautiful location, one has to walk over to the Hilton across the way to get simple snacks/food. There's no vending machine, only the restaurant, which, again, is fine, but pretty limited in scope e.g. no bag of chips or other snacks. They do provide to go and room service, though, so that's a plus. This omission seems very odd given that the rest of the property is so nice. It seems like it wouldn't be that hard to setup a little some small space at the front desk. But, again, this is minor. The place is a lovely place and the Hilton is less than a 5 min walk away.
