      Bed too hard. No amenities in the room like shampoo or laundry bag. Annoying to have to pay extra for wi-fi given the expense of the room. Front desk personnel were seemingly irritable in addressing questions.

    • Group of friends
      8.0

      Easy access to freeway and eating places.

    • Family with children
      7.0

      Modern, updated decor. Euro mixed with Ikea. Pleasing color palette.

      Loudness of water running through the pipes. Needs more insulation. Wakes you up at night. Smell of bathroom when doing "constitutional" permeates the whole room. Needs either another door or better exhaust. No shampoo. Walls have dated rough, cottage cheese surface. Smoother walls would be more updated & pleasing.

    • Older travelers

      The price was excellent, the room was clean and modern and the location was very convenient. It was what I look for in a hotel; clean, safe and convenient with a low price for the area.

    • Group of friends
      8.8

      1 block to shopping center with good restaurants. Quiet, clean, contemporary styling.

      Beds do not have box springs and are hard. Not a lot of room for stuff except on the floor.

    • Group of friends
      5.4

      It was quite.

      They weren't to helpful checking in.

    • Older travelers

      the cleanliness of the hotel and the centralized location close proximity to shops/restaurants & the beach

    • Older travelers

      no breakfast availalable not even a kettle in the room.

      Well, it is a fair place, nice, clean and honest.

      In my trip to America it was the only place I had to pay for the internet (US$2.99 a day) and did not have a continental breakfast included in the price.

      Good position tobeach and visiting S.Barbara

      Really basic! Only soap, no coffee machine, small towels, ... Smoking room instead of non-smoking as we choose at reservation.

    • Couple
      8.2

      Simple and clean room.

      Outside area wasn't very clean (cig butts around the walkways). The shower current also leaked some water so our bathroom got kinda wet.

    • Single
      8.2

      Stylish accommodations for the money. Room very clean. Lighting in main room and bath area both very good, something seldom seen these days even at upscale properties. I'd heard walls were thin and noise a problem, but in my location (I asked for quietest) on the second floor, not close to the road and facing the southernmost parking it was most very quiet even on Friday and Saturday nights.

      Main complaint was slow service on check-in. Arriving Thursday evening with reservations and with a meeting to catch I had to wait nearly 30 minutes while several walk-ins were for drop-in folks bartered for best rates. Though there was only one person at the desk, I feel someone with reservations should take priority over someone without (a person already being served is ok, but I then had to wait for a 2nd to barter even though staff knew I had reservations and that person did not). Is this your policy? Made me late for my meeting.

    • Couple
      8.8

      The renewed modern rooms really nice and comfortable.

      The internet is very cheap, but would be better if it were for free.

    • Single
      4.6

      It's cheap but not clean and the room was very small!

    • Couple
      7.8

      This was one of our stops as we travelled down Route 1 and found that it's in a great location close to Santa Barbara and Montecito. The rooms are also modern which is a refreshing change from most motels!

      It looked clean on the surface but I was disturbed by hair in the shower!
