8/10 Very good

Lovely restored hotel in the middle of Santa Barbara, surrounded by excellent restaurants, including the one associated with the hotel. Staff provides outstanding service to compensate for basic issues with structure of hotel - vintage elevator, for example, and could not get hot water for a shower. Lovely hot tub though, as well as swimming pool.

Great hotel, Charlie Chaplin built in 1928
Great trip. Stayed for a wedding. Hotel is lovely. Some of the rooms and bathrooms could use a little updating. Would definitely stay there again though.

Small but convenient
Very convenient location. Older hotel so rooms and especially bathrooms are outdated. No desk area to work in standard king rooms but otherwise cozy.
