"Will not be coming back"
Other then the great location of being right across from the beachand close to state street nothing else to like, not enough parking for guests, hear neighbors talking. could hear neighbor below snor. stairs extremely loud. very dark trying to drive around alleys trying to find parking. Extremely overpriced for what you get. Would not recommened to […] others or come back, highly disappointing Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
bright cheery rooms, excellent location, friendly helpful staff, would stay again!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Nice hotel close to the beach"
I booked my trip through Expedia, however at time of checkout I was charged again in my credit card. I called the hotel to let them know I was double billed. They said they would take the charge off teturn the money back to my acct. That was on March 28th, it is now April 4th and my acct is still double billed.Genuine Expedia guest review
"stay upstairs if you can"
I've been a few times. Some of the rooms downstairs are pretty lame. I swear people getting in their car were in the bathroom with me. Great rooms upstairs and great vibesGenuine Hotels.com guest review
Quality as promised with a great location. Rate was competitive but still a lil high.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Very nice place just too much $$"
I loved the place and the staff was great but it was way over priced and charged for parking.. The price was way to high and the room was tiny.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Santa Barbara Weekend getaway"
Great location. Walking distance to tons of cool nightlife.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Not worth the money"
Dirty, outdated. Does not match the description or photos on the Expedia web-site. We stayed at 6 different hotels during a trip through California and this was the only one that disappointed. This place was such a let-down the family wanted to escape Santa Barbara at the crack of dawn. Less than 2 minutes after my girls left the room, someone from […] housekeeping let themselves in and shut the door behind them. Their cart was no where in sight. I walked in on them going through bags left on the dresser. We had not check out yet. I'm a frequent business traveler and had not ever experienced this level of brazen poaching. Not only is it a sad image to put on a such a dismal place it is not a safe practice for their employees. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
Loved this place. perfect location and view plus the workers were really helpful and nice. Only thing I didn't like was there breakfast other than that I loved it =)Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Not the easiest hotel to stay at"
The hotel was very clean. But I am not sure what some hotels think that guests do in the bathrooms. There was not a place to set anything down in the bathroom. I had to put all my things in the sink and keep moving them. The stairs and doors to get into the room were very tight. But the location is very nice.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Excellent location, cozy hotel"
Perfect location - right on the beach and close to everything you need to see in downtown Santa Barbara (restaurants, the pier etc). Cute, cozy and very comfortable rooms for a good price!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Unfortunately somewhat out of date. You have to pay for parking which is crazy. They had a continental breakfast but never told us such at check-in. Was nice though to be right on the beachGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Need serious update, old dated."
1) Hotel really needs update, it is very dated. 2) Gym is terrible, one out of five equipment was broken, the other two equipment made loud noise, not a gym. 3) Breakfast included unless you want eggs then it is $5 4) Charged twice for the stay, we paid Expedia, the computer system made mistake ????? 5) Balcony had two plastic chairs that you can buy […] at Home Depot for $10. 5) Overall this is a very old dated hotel, Sorry I can not recommend this hotel.

"Disappointing and Overpriced"
I was looking for a room with an ocean view to relax for a one-night getaway on a budget. I found this to be the only hotel with a room left so I spent the extra money for the ocean view. The parking situation is horrible - I had to park on the street almost a block away, walk to the lobby to check in, the receptionist had me pay for parking then said […] "If you can find parking this is where you'd park" as she pointed to a map. Luckily there was one parking spot left in a different parking lot. I start walking to the room and I was immediately disappointed. It looked just like an apartment building and my "ocean view" was more of a street view with the ocean in the distance. The room was very stuffy, old, and just tacky. All the colors made it look like a kid's room and the smell + the noise of the cars made it hard to relax or sleep. I thought I'd watch TV until I knock out by the none of the channels were in HD as described and the TV kept flickering. It was like watching TV in the 80's. Ultimately, this would've been a nice motel stay or even a low-end hotel. But I paid luxury hotel prices for an experience worth a quarter of the cost - that's the rub.

"Fabulous location, attentive staff"
A wonderful location across from the beach. A very quaint hotel with a cool vibe. We loved the fact that we could rent bikes for free, which my niece and I enjoyed. There was a delightful restaraunt around the corner called Toma. I'll be certainly returning to this gem of a hotel.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Better than Motel 6..."
For the price the rooms need remodeling especially the bathrooms. Great location though. Walking distance from tasting rooms and restaurants.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Great location& free bikes"
This was a great find especially if you are not going to spend a lot of time in your room. Great location and excellent service. Rooms are nothing special and quite small but appear clean.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
It was a awesome place to stay, centrally located and clean and quiet town.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Beautiful hotel across the street from the beach."
friendly helpful staff, GREAT continental breakfast. Walking distance to restaurants, shopping and Stearns Wharf.Genuine Expedia guest review
I was very surprised to learn at checkout that Hotel Oceania was going to charge an additional $50+ dollars a night for bicycles, wi-fi and self parking. We didn't use the bikes or wi-fi. The self-parking I expected however it was not a secured lot. Additionally, I thought breakfast could have been a lot better. The location is awesome but that was […] it. The first night ( we paid top dollar thru Hotels.com for an ocean view room). There was construction going on across the street at the beach all night! I think the staff should have told us up front. They would have refunded our "top dollar" for the first night but could not as I booked through hotels.com. The staff did comp the "additional fees" to make up for being unable to comp the first night due to the excessive noise. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
Nice place by the ocean. A little too much traffic noise but a hotel supplied fan covered it well.Genuine Expedia guest review
"It was a nice looking Spanish setting"
Historic "old Santa Barbara" hotel located a cross from the water front, nice and clean but noisy... Floors, pluming.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Overpriced and disorganized"
Hotel was poorly disorganized and poorly managed by staff and management. New ownership transition wasn't planned well and led to check-in confusion and delay. Facilities are outdated. Price for facility definitely not worth what you get.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Average but expansive hotel"
Our room had a sea view but over a four lane highway. It was small with little room around the bed. We were disappointed that there was no restaurant. The gym was excellent.Overall our stay. was not value for money.Genuine Expedia guest review
We enjoyed the complimentary beach cruiser bikes; such a great service. The staff was very friendly and you can't beat the beachfront location!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Nice, quaint and cozy"
Nicely maintained and very nice continental breakfast.Genuine Expedia guest review
Location was great. Found dirty clothes in hotel room from previous guests. Hated the fact that I pairs 400 bucks and didn't have a balcony or anything to enjoy the fact that it's on the ocean. Overall the stay was fine. Staff was helpful and accommodating. Giving me $50 off my room. I suppose that works right?Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Close to beach and State Street"
It was a great, beautiful, quaint location and the photos did not lie. Would definitely go back again. Across from the beach and close to many shops and restaurants. Loved it! Continental breakfast that came with the stay was great as well :-)Genuine Hotels.com guest review
This hotel is ideally located with beach access across the street, & a easy walk to the heart of State St. Lovely pool setting with birds chirping, & peaceful. Unfortunately the walls are indeed paper thin, & this room faced the back parking lot, plus southbound traffic down Cabrillo starts @ 7 a.m. on a Sunday morning..The pillows smelled less than […] fresh. Parking overnight on the surrounding streets is safe & free. Lived 1 street over after college..nice to see this neighborhood has maintained a clean & safe vibe after 20 yrs.

"Great location,room was spacious."
We had 1 night free without kids,this was an easy adult get away.The drive was less than 2 hours from home,wine tasting and restaurants within walking distance.The weather was amazing,sitting on the beach at 4pm watching the sunset in shorts and T-shirt,temps in high 60's.Genuine Expedia guest review
"right on the ocean"
lovely hotel...we will return.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Noisy room but good location"
The rooms are very noisy - I spent only one night at the hotel, but I could hear my neighbours having a "romantic" evening. Fair play to them, but not exactly what you want to experience. The breakfast is nothing to write home about, and the hotel will charge you a "resort fee" for breakfast and amenities, even though breakfast is advertised as being […] included in the room price. The location is great if you want to go to the beach, but if you're looking to spend time shopping, you should look for something closer to State St., and if you're going to be driving around to see the sights, you can probably find something cheaper and better elsewhere.

"Great location within walking distance of beach"
Got a reservation on expedia within hours of our arrival. Comfortable bed, clean room, fireplace, frig. Walked to dinner at Stearn's Wharf, slept well, had lovely breakfast before we left.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Ok hotel, way overpriced"
It was overall ok. Front desk staff was great, friendly and helpful. $18 for parking per day. You had to pay for the coffee in the room, which I have never heard of. If you wanted free coffee, then you could walk to the lobby in the morning or you could get it at the continental breakfast that was "included" with the room rate. Upon checkout I was charged […] an extra $10 for a service fee. When I asked what this charge was, she proceeded to tell me that it covers the continental breakfast, pool and other amenities that are so called "free". Wouldn't stay here again.

I am obsessed with hotel oceana. I've stayed here many times with my family so I decided to take my boyfriend for valentines day and it was amazing. Such a perfect hotel- super unique and cool looking as well as clean and classy! I absolutely love it here.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
The very best part was the location. Would stay there again for that reason alone. It was definitely an older hotel - but we were upgraded to a "mini-suite" which was basically just a little bigger room. The noise from the heater and other rooms was definitely annoying. While the bike rental (2 hours), WiFi and breakfast were advertised as free, there […] was a $10 a day service charge for the bike rental, WiFi and breakfast whether you used those services or not. It was pricey for the quality of the hotel; however, we felt it was worth it for the location. Woould stay there again but only for a night or two. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Fun weekend with my college daughter!!"
Great location. We had a partial ocean view room that was nice and clean. Good bed and nice tub in the bathroom. The breakfast could have been better, the fruit was quite bad, no good coffee. We loved the location of this hotel.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Entry key would not work. It took an hr. To get into room. No free coffee, no glass for water. Shower very small. I remember staying here on business trips over the past 6 years, it has never been this poor until last week. Hotel attendant offered a bottle of wine for the inconvenience, then forgot to deliver it.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"With in walking distance to beach and state street"
Was a really nice getaway location for the weekendGenuine Expedia guest review
"Nice hotel with good sized rooms"
Great location with the beach and boardwalk just across the street. Within walking distance to several restaurants, shopping, or to just cruise the beach. Bike and boat rentals are also close.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Wonderful place to stay"
Large clean room with nice patio in front to sip your morning coffee. Excellent location. Couldn't be happier with our stay. Excellent value. We will defiantly be back to beautiful Santa Barbara and this sweet hotel again!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Great beach view"
Nice hotel located right across the street from the beach and around the corner from State Street (the main shopping and dining Street in SB). The only negatives were the noise from the rooms either side and above me (lots of kids screaming) and some road noise. They also charge for the coffee in the room. I would definitely stay here again however […] . Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

"Nice sea side hotel close to state street"
Hotel was very nice, clean, friendly staff, good breakfast. Loved the location. the bathroom could use some updating but over all we were very pleased with our stay there!Genuine Expedia guest review
"Wonderful hotel to stay at"
Well my family was very happy with the hotel. We got the Deluxe Double Room. We paid a little more for the deluxe but we feel as if it was well worth it. The room was definetly bigger and it felt spacious. I would also recommend getting the 2nd floor room. I feel that it may be brighter than the first floor. The staff was wonderful. They even extended […] our stay an extra hour at no charge so we could clear our room. The breakfast was wonderful. Enough to fill us up. Coffee, Orange Juice everything was fresh. The bathroom was clean and had good items (shampoos, conditioners etc.). I would definitely come back to this hotel. Also, if you come to Santa Barbara on a sunny warm day, you will feel like you are in Hawaii almost. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
Right where you want to be. Food , shopping, and the beach.Genuine Expedia guest review
Had a wonderful surprise, close to the beach, clean and spacious rooms, friendly staff and excellent breakfast with freshly pressed orange juice and fruit salad - 10 out of 10...Genuine Expedia guest review
Even joyed my stay. The three things I had a problem with we're, TV outdated with very pour picture, TV controller did not function properly, and and noise from the next door shower was the loudest I have ever heard.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Pretty decent hotel"
It's a pretty nice hotel. Nothing special. But it was clean and comfortable. I would recommend it to someone staying in Santa Barbara for a night.Genuine Expedia guest review
This is a nice hotel, but the rooms appear to have been done up on the cheap. The bath had been repainted and it was peeling off in places - fittings were a bit dated. The bedroom was nice though and the room we had looked out onto a pool.Genuine Expedia guest review
