                    • Lovely pool area adjacent to the las aves cafe and nice Stay. The staff were very friendly, bathrooms were well kept, and the beds/bedding was really comfortable, the restaurant was also very good.

                      The price was way too expensive for the room/hotel.

                    • Location is ideal amidst a residential area, the hotel is close to state street we liked and the staff are kind and friendly. The internet is very fast and restaurant is very good.

                      Small rooms and a little expensive, old sofas.

                    • Nice quiet location and comfortable stay. The staff were friendly and the room was clean, in good shape and everything worked.

                      Hotels in Santa Barbara are not cheap.

                    • The kitchen was well equipped, and the small dining area seats four, the hotel room was clean. The staff were fabulous, the balcony was also a BIG plus and the restaurant, A Capella had very nice ambiance. Pool was good.

                      The bed was uncomfortable.
