Love the garden view the fact that I could walk out and not in room so much. Nice
Great location, across the street from the beach and easy to walk to downtown for dinner.
The pool is a little small if the hotel is full. Sound bounces off the stucco buildings, but every night it got quiet so sleeping wasn't a problem.

The pool & location we're good
The room was smelly, carpets throughout hotel were not vacuumed, air on was leaking a wet puddle on our floor, bed was lumpy & uncomfortable, no towels provided - and this was an upgraded suite! We complained and got most of our money back.
Location near the waterfront
The rooms are deteriorating and smell musty. They need a renovation.
The food was very good especially the breakfast buffet.
The rooms need redecorating and renovation.
Not being told the price of WII in advance.
No free wifi in the rooms Noisy house keeping they start vacuuming near the rooms as early as 7 am
Location is superb. Pool is very nice, fitness is good, rooms are fine. Great breakfast buffet
Personel is really nog good enough for a hotel like this. Breakfast service is very slow. We were very lucky to have a special offer via booking.com but in general you pay (a lot) for the location.
I liked a lot about this place, staff and all, very good.
I can't stand a hotel that these days charges for WiFi, I think it's painfully negative and, from a sales point of view, just bad thinking. They charge 12.95 per day. I also find it terrible when a hotel puts bottles of water in the room and tells you they cost you 7.50 ... these little things could easily be incorporated into the room rate - but charging them like this just makes the hotel look petty. Get with the time, folks - free WiFi is a must.
Large rooms, comfortable beds, beautiful grounds
Meals and drinks very expensive for the atomosphere/location...$15 for a pool side glass of wine! Also, wait staff was slow in getting menus and drinks out. One watier actually suggested we eat at a different restaurant because he was so busy!
rooms are renovated rooms are big
This was our third stay in the fess parker. It became a family tradition for us. But this time we had bad experiences.We stayed 5 nights with a high rate between July 26-31. Our room was looking at the pool. One night at 1:10 am I woke up with noise from the pool. Two drunk young couples just jumped into the pool with extreme noise. One of the young men get totally naked and jumped into the pool and they began making love in the pool.There is no security on the pool side and anyone can come to the pool after 8:00 pm. The hotel is not a safe place definitely. The laundry is not renovated. The machines are very old and some of them does not work properly. The staff who tried to fix the machinery on early morning on the 27th of July was rude.
Good location, big property with a nice pool. Bikes on location, and friendly staff.
The room wasn't the best, stains on the furniture and sheets.
The location and the facilities were good.
The rooms and corridors were a bit tired and shabby. It is in dire need of a refurbishment. Not what you would expect from a four star resort.
Super outdoor pool, room a great size for a family of 3. Not happy with original room offered - staff changed us to another room with no problem at all took on board our concerns straight away.
No problem with the hotel Santa Barbara however not as lively as I expected. We did take the time to totally relax by a fantastic pool.
The Staff was very accommodating and the facilities was centrally located
The location cannot be beat. The grounds were beautiful. The room was nice but could have used some TLC.
The pool was a disaster in the late afternoon when we went to visit. Our college visit was done and we had eaten and wanted to do something fun. There were literally 100s of towels every where! No clean ones, all dirty. To the point where it was hard to find chairs. The next day, a child had a #2 accident in the pool and it had to be closed. As a parent, I would never take my kids into a pool unprotected. The pool was a huge fail for us.
Parking fees and added charges
Room wasn't ready at already late 4pm check in - got free parking though
Location to beach and Main St
During check in we received no offer of help getting our luggage to the room. The elevators are not marked visibly, so we walked up stairs to 3rd floor.
Separate area with sofa and bed area. Walking beach is great Roadhouse Buffet
pay for parking pay for internet no shower cap in bath
