great reasonably priced hotel in downtown SB (nearer to upper state). Gracious staff, great pool and very family friendly.

Very nice room!
Very nice room! It was pretty big and had a King size bed as well as a recliner and another arm chair. We were on the top floor and the room had a small cathedral ceiling so it really felt nice and big. we did face the road at the back of the property - it wasn't a busy road, but when cars went by they were pretty loud. The bed was comfortable and had plenty of covers and pillows. The room was very clean, and the apples, water, coffee and jolly ranchers in the room were a very nice touch! The Live Oak restaurant was nice though it didn't have a full bar which was a little odd ... they made some cocktails, but didn't have basics like gin. There were 3 wines to choose from and it looked like quite a few choices for beer. The BBQ Chicken quesadilla was excellent. Breakfast was decent. The only thing that I wasn't crazy about was how pricey it was for the location. We came in on the train so we didn't have a car, and the hotel isn't really near anything - it's about a mile to downtown ... not a terrible walk, but not exactly convenient. The room was more expensive than a recent trip to NYC when we stayed right across the street from Lincoln Center.

Overall a comfortable stay.
Our stay was very comfortable. We were able to check-in early and our room was spacious if a little dated in decor. The decor honestly didn't bother me our my teenage sons. We actually found it kind of charming and retro. Our only complaint was that we were able to hear a lot of movement from the upstairs room, we were on the lower floor. Also, at around 2:30 a.m. there was a very loud drunk woman causing a disturbance. I don't know is she was on the property or in the space between the hotel property and their neighbors. The noise did wake me and one of my sons.

Poor1.0 / 5
It was a very quiet location, which was nice, but a hotel room without a working shower is a definite NO. For $375 a night, I should be able to take a shower. When I complained to the front desk, the response was "I didn't know it didn't work", but you could tell be her face that she did know. No move to remedy the problem. DO NOT BOOK HERE!
