The staff were helpful and very courteous. The hotel is very clean and convenient. Unfortunately, it is located in the old downtown of Santa Barbara which is sadly crumbling due to city fathers' neglect.

Nice Hotel and area - enjoyable breakfast
We were in town for a wedding and thought the local area and waterfront were nicer than we were expecting. The hotel rooms were small but this is an historic building and is maintained as lovely as can be. The breakfast lacked meat options but pastries were scrumptious. My only complaint is the unexpected number of homeless persons all over the area, including right outside the hotel. It was quite a juxtaposition to the meticulous and consistent architecture and upscale restaurants of the area. Perhaps this is just Cali....
