Nice location on outskirts of Santa Barbara, good stop over.
Bath plug did not work - all water drained out! Reported to reception on leaving. Restaurant closed for refurbishment during our stay
Everything was great- very accommodating. My only complaint was the quality of the bed. Replacing mattresses with higher quality beds should be a priority at this property. Otherwise, good value during the winter months.
The hotel is old, and built by Charlie Chaplin, that ambiance was very enjoyable and well taken care of an exceptional place to stay.
The location is ideal and you can walk to shops & restaurants!
The restaurant downstairs is still closed and unavailable.
The staff was friendly and the accommodations were amazing.
