              • The location was perfect, 2hrs free ocean cruiser bicycle hire was also good and old Santa Barbara Hotel located near the beach. The staff were superb and room was clean. The breakfast had delicious fresh orange juice and yummy local pastries as well as other items, spa was great.

                The place is awful and the toilet in the tiny bathroom is the size of a childs potty chair. The gardens seemed badly in need of tlc.

              • Very nice location and room, convenient Stop for Rail Travelers, manager couldnt even give us decent directions to a nearby beach. Santa barbara is beautiful, staff is friendly and the nightstands and TV console looked very cheap. The continental breakfast is $10 a person.

                This place is awful and also the bathroom lighting is very bad for old eyes. At night the cruisers blaring loud music and skreeching are disturbing.

              • The site is perfect, i liked the location of the hotel being right on the beach and wonderful accomodation, room close to the pool and jacuzzi.

                Poor value, noisy street and the front desk staff did not find any reservation for the additional first day. The bathroom fan was broken, the breakfast the following morning was not good.

              • Great location friendly staff and cost effective. Overpriced and not worth the money, fantastic service. The bathroom was big and good selection of food included in continental breakfast.

                For an ocean view room, was decorated very cheaply and the carpet was stained, the quality of the sheets and towels were very poor. The actual toilet had trouble flushing.

                Wifi signal is weak in some part of the hotel.

              • The location is fantastic, room decor is lovely and the bathroom could have been cleaned better.

                Not the kind in normal good hotels, not worth the price and we loved the old California style, plantings and design touches. Loud street and upon arrival, the office staff were rude. The fridge mad too much noise during the night as did the heater air con unit, the fruit at the Contenential Breakfast was not fresh.

              • Location was very good and hotel was clean we were there for Thanksgiving family get together. Staff were friendly and helpful, room was very comfortable, the pool was very nice.

                Charges for extras were way too much and the furniture was cheap 1980's style and dirty and chipped. Maid service was awful, the light switches in the bathroom were filthy and the toilet seat was old and scratched, and you sat on the toilet was wobbly. Breakfast was just ok.

              • Good location, best Stay Ever and staff were very friendly and helpful. The bed was super comfortable.

                This hotel is way overpriced for the little that offers and the complementary breakfast room is always too crowded.

              • Convenient location and awesome Hotel. The staff were excellent and courteous to us as guest, my room was clean.

              • The location across from the beach was awesome, our stay was wonderful and the staff were friendly and helpful. The room was clean.

                This place is a poor poor excuse for a hotel and be warned.

              • The location, and the fact that you had a couple of pools and jacuzzi available, hotel Oceana staff were wonderful. Attendants at the front desk was very courteous and helpful, the breakfast room was sunny and cheerful and the offerings were more than ample.

                No modern heating system, small and very low toilet.

              • Location was perfect close to beach and toiletries and decor in the room was good. Customer service was just fine and the best bed I ever slept in.

                The staff is friendly and the hotel itself was not noisy.
