                          Good location, close to State St and centre of town

                          Whilst its a nice enough motel, I didn't think it great value for money and I was not staying at peak season either

                          We were very happy that they had smoking rooms!!! It's getting harder and harder to find hotels that accommodate smokers.

                          The room was very spacious and nicely decorated!

                          There were no elevators to bring your luggage upstairs

                          Quiet, centrally located, reasonable price (for Santa Barbara), provided snacks and waters daily

                          The room seemed adequate in its layout.

                          No hot water, only lukewarm showers!!! Paid for kitchenette type room and had no utensils, dinnerware, cooking pots, etc. and no key to enter locked cabinet where they might have been located. Single pane old windows that allowed lots of noise and cold air in. Loud refrigerator-- so loud we had to turn off the refrig in order to hear the tv. Poor insulation between floors--could hear people above heat their room hear their tv, hear them pound across the floor. Don't ever expect to stay at a Best Western hotel again, if these above problems fit into the BW criteria.

                          Location and proximity to freeway. Hotel is in a quite neighborhood with minimal traffic with a nearby coffee shop and restaurant.

                          Found ants in the room, which was addressed. Following afternoon there was a massive water leak. Hotel manager comped the room when I checked out. Feel the staff could have been more proactive with the situation by either communicating to us what had happened and had a backup plan in place rather than us having to enter the room to find water everywhere and then going to the front desk to complain.

                          Lovely hotel nice rooms which were very clean. We paid $250 for one night stay not sure if this is just a weekend rate but a bit pricy as we have stayed in other hotels wich were as nice with breakfast included for half he price. Would recommend if you get it for a good price.

                          We were suprised that the room was a converted one bedroom apartment. We would definately stay here again.

                          Good value for the price. Nice full service restaurant.

                          It was a very clean hotel with an amazingly friendly and helpful staff.

                          I enjoyed having the restaurant on site, the food was very good. And my son enjoyed the pool.

                          I booked five rooms and they did not bill me right.

                          Relatively quiet hotel away from the hustle and bustle of it all. restaurant on site. parking is near room.

                          hotel was out of towels for pool area. had to wait 30 minutes for them to go and pick some laundered ones up. hotel is really outdated....wallpaper was peeling and ripped in the bathrooms...dingy green carpet was not appealing, nor was the dark old furniture. receptionist took a phone call as she saw me walking to counter to check in and i was left standing for well over 5 minutes. then, she wasn't apologetic at all and a bit cold.

                          Liked the overall niceness of the hotel, from the rooms to the staff to the restaurant.

                          Small rooms and a little expensive.

                          It was a short ride to shopping and the beach. It is quiet. When we got there they allowed us to choose from the available rooms so we could be either upstairs or by the pool. The staff was friendly. The rooms were clean and nice, the bathrooms in the rooms were up to date and clean.
