Dated rooms, non existant "breakfast"!
This is by far the worst hotel we have stayed at during our 3 week trip around California. The hotel is dated and the walls are paper thin. Our kids were kept awake until 3am by the guests upstairs then myself and my wife were wakened by guests at 6:30 am. The bed felt like it was on a slope and I was about to roll off. The toilet dribbled continuously (they did try to fix it without success). The air conditioning only blew at Tornado level whether on high or low. The wifi was so slow I used my mobile instead. I booked this hotel specifically for the included breakfast to make it easy as we are a family of 6 with 4 young kids. At 9:10 am we entered the breakfast room (tiny) which was crammed full of people with a queue and people eating breakfast standing. The breakfast consisted of a few croissants and some sugary cereals and that was it. I immediately complained to reception that we couldn't have breakfast and asked for a refund of the breakfast component which the nice asian boy said he'd take up with his manager before a grumpy bearded man came out and refused any refund. He said that breakfast was available since 6:30 so we weren't entitled to a refund. I asked him if he'd be up at 6:30 am if he'd been kept awake until 3am like my kids had. He suggested we eat breakfast in our room. We went back to the breakfast room (still a queue) and promptly left in disgust.

Exceptional 10.0
Great experience. No issues with the area it's located and staff were friendly and helpful. Breakfest was great as well. WiFi was a tad slow and kept trying to reconnect with the way it's setup there. But overall would highly recommend.

Nice stay
Nice hotel in Santa Barbara. Away from the harbour area - about 4 miles. Checkin staff very helpful and courteous. Room was large and clean and comfortable. Breakfast was satisfactory - nothing special but fresh fruit and yoghurt available. Only downside is you have to drive to the harbour area of Santa Barbara

Good 6.0
Pretty old and worn but maybe that’s the norm for a $100 a night hotel in Santa Barbara?!

Fair 4.0
Check in was good and staff was pleasant. Had room next to group of noisy, drinking men. Tried to change room but none available. Spent till 10 oclock hearing them.. Walls were paper thin and could hear everyword they were screaming. Called at 10 for security and then it got quiet. Don't know if security came or they just went to sleep.
