The room was clean, great view of the ocean. I would have liked more room for your toiletries next to the sink. Food was great too, we ate at both locations in the hotel. But when we asked for room service we got everything in boxes instead of plates. Overall we had a great time here.

Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service, property conditions & facilities
I liked the convenience to the Cabrillo Pavilion which is right across the street where our daughter got married the weekend we stayed in Santa Barbara. The bathrooms did not have towel bars to hang wet towels. The bathroom door was glass and light spilled out onto the bed at night when in bathroom was in use. There wasn't any glassware in the bathroom or near coffee machine/refrigerator. The room we stayed in was quite small. The valet was expensive but self parking was on the street and wasn't always available.

The balcony rooms with ocean view are great. One building on the property has no ocean view, in fact we had a great view of the adjacent building before we changed rooms. An upgrade was not expensive. I recommend it!

Great location right across from the beach with restaurants and shops within a mile. Loved the complimentary beach cruisers. Rooms a little small, but otherwise very clean and comfortable. Staff very friendly and helpful.
