Somewhere to Stay in Santa Barbara.
We had booked a Junior Suite but the first room we were shown was terrible, small and overlooking the parking lot and the works depot and the railway line. After a discussion with the Duty Manager, we got the sort of room that we had booked. There was also a problem with the check-out when we were charged with someone else's bar bill, so check your expenses before you agree to pay your bill.

Poor 2.0
disappointing stay for a supposedly luxury hotel
website said mountain view; we got parking lot view. The room did not look clean for a supposed covid19 crisis. called down to the front desk on the first night since the next door guest had children that were running around with no supervision till very late and early morning hours. toilet got clogged and no one answered the housekeeping phone for service. Will not be staying again!

Ji, us1 night trip
Exceptional 10.0
such a beautiful stay
The room was excellent and very clean. It was unfortunate that the covid outbreak was taking place or else I would’ve loved to have used the pool. We also got complimentary wine and complimentary bike rentals. Took full advantage of those perks. The property was beautiful as well. Across the way from the beach.
