The location was excellent. Wholefoods was across the road and powells bookstore was one block away. Main downtown area and all features including voodoo donuts and food carts about 10 minutes walk. Staff were friendly and knowledgable. Our favourite part of the hotel though would have to be the soaking pool in the basement was a great way to unwind after a long day! We had a room that had a shared bathroom however as our room had a sink it did not affect us at all and we never had to wait to use the bathroom. There were also 3 bars located on the property and each had its own cool vibe the live music in als den is a must see !
We are on a road trip adventure around the US and Santa Barbara was our 3rd stop. We've stayed in some amazing hotels and some more expensive but we both absolutely loved this one. Incredible location and very cool hotel. Love the design and decor. Loved our room. Fabulous staff. Took the bikes out for a cycle. Loved Santa Barbara too. Hotel is in an amazing location. We only booked for one night and it should have been at least 2 or 3. We didn't want to leave and didn't even have time to explore most of the other facilities.
Great email instructions as to how to access the property, etc. Thoughtful welcome basket upon arrival including tea, coffee, olive oil, candy, and nice handwritten welcome note. Very nice and relaxing property, well appointed and just steps from the center of town. Very quiet and secure.
It was so nice to have all the space of a 1 bedroom condo to relax in. The view a East Bay from the balcony was wonderful. It was our choice to come in May instead of during the summer but I would imagine that this place would be even better in July.
