    Beautiful accommodations, amazing location, comfortable bed, friendly housekeeping staff.

    Desk staff wasn't as welcoming or as helpful as in many of the other luxury hotels we've stayed at. The check-in seemed rushed even though no one was in the lobby. This was my 35th birthday trip and no one went out of their way to recognize it.

    Excellent facilities, very helpful staff, terrific location

    A more powerful hair dryer would have been nice

  • Couple

    The Inn was beautiful and luxurious. The staff was friendly, the rooms were spacious and tastefully decorated. The bathrooms were amazing!

    The room was a bit pricey.

    I was close to the ocean and central to the city so we could do what we wanted to do easily and without long car trips

  • Family with children

    The room was very large and comfortable with double qeen bed and living zone both inside the room and outdoor in a small garden. Position of the hotel is perfect, in the best zone of Santa Barbara, near all attractions.

    Loved the proximity to the beach and the room was awesome. Clean, nicely decorated and very comfortable.

    The room keys deactivated 3 times. We had to keep returning to the front desk to have them reactivated. Very frustrating! We were not the only ones, as we overheard other guests experiencing the same issues. Obviously the hotel needs to invest in a new system. The front desk staff were apologetic and told us to keep them away from our cell phones as this could demagnetize them. We followed their instructions, but it still kept happening.

    Meticulously maintained and in a great location--would return

    It's location is superb and the beds are probably the best I have ever slept in - well ous was anyway. But it was expensive for what you got

  • Older travelers

    Beautiful view. Walking distance to many shops and right on trolley line so moving about is easy.

    I had a problem with the bath tub, and it was not fixed during my stay. I had taken a bath (the tub is huge and great for soaking). But the stopper was stuck and I couldn't release the water. My husband notified housekeeping, who came and unplugged the stopper to let the water out, then cleaned the tub. But the stopper was left out and not fixed so I could not use the tub again.

    Easy location on the Santa Barbara waterfront, nice stroll to restaurants, a clean and comfortable hotel.

  • Older travelers
    6.0

    Great location across from the Wharf and Harbor.

    The air condition was not working in our room, and it was uncomfortably hot and stuffy. The maintenance staff adjusted the thermostat, but it did not fix the problem. Next morning, we heard the air conditioning in our building was broken. We checked out a day early. Otherwise, the room was nice. Bathroom very nice. Restaurant on the corner was average at best.

  • Older travelers
    9.6

    Pleasant & Central beach location with easy access to town, restaurants, etc. Well appointed & quiet room with easy access to pool & spa. Good parking.

    No criticism at all. It was perfect for a short,non-business trip to Sta. Barbara.

  • Older travelers
    9.2

    location, service, quality of food, show and big bath!

    Found matress a little "soft and soggy" for my taste
