Good 6.0
some bathrooms updated some outdated
This was my second stay in a month. I chose this place because my first stay was excellent. This time I got a room with a dated bathroom, much to my disappointment. My first trip was solo and thought I was going to treat my wife to a nice little place with updated style for good value. I did not know that some rooms were updated and some were old. Overall good location and nice place, just make sure you know which room you are getting. Overall good value but I would have paid the extra for nicer amenities for the room.

This is has been our Santa Barbara weekend place for many years. In a quieter residential area close to the beach, but off the busy Cabrillo Blvd.

I have stayed at this inn before and really enjoyed it however, was quite disappointed this time around, especially with the cleaning service (used towel on the back of the bathroom door upon check in) A/C unit went out in the middle of the night and more - we called front desk three times with no answer. We told the front desk the next day. He said he would relay to his GM, we never heard back and paid full price for the room. Bad experience, bad customer service. Sad to say I likely won’t be back there.

Santa Barbara is a super fun getaway, even for a business trip

Very Good 8.0
There was absolutely no toilet paper, no soap and only one washcloth in the room. The coffee in the room was more like brown water. They are taking full advantage of not having to offer any amenities through this pandemic. Hot tub was closed and laundry was closed. The only ice that was open was by the pool. If you want ice you can only get it when the pool is open. The location was the best thing about this place. We loved the short walk to the piers and the water. The balcony was worth the little extra money, although there wasn’t much of a view.
