We decided to go to Santa Barbara for a weekend and the check in was 3pm which means your day is gone. We are locals and to check our at 1100am means you havent maximized your stay. We did not the room till almost three and cancelled our outinhs that day. We asked for room to be cleaned at 9pm and before leaving at 0900am. No one came/ i had to get the cleaning lady to ask for amenities and throw our trash. Check in was unfriendly like we were doing them a favor. We arrived at 0900am That was probably asking too much. I am a frequent traveller ad even in New York city I have been given a room at 0900am everything is about customer service busy or not.

Staff was wonderful, especially Jarrod!! They went out of their way to make it a pleasant stay. The lounge area and courtyard are pretty. The on-site restaurant is excellent with great food and staff! Although the exercise room was disappointing, I would definitely stay here again!

We needed a place to stay last minute. Check in early or you are stuck in the way back with limited parking. That was had with 2 children and baggage.

This hotel was so cute and clean that I didn’t even feel like I was staying at a best western…it felt so much nicer than that! The little cafe/restaurant that was located by the pool was extremely convenient and really tasty too! Great experience!
