Great customer service! Nice heated pool and beautiful grounds. Nicely redone rooms with ample USB plugins for devices. Great breakfast spread. Perfect place to stay while in the Santa Barbara/Goleta area.

This property deserves recognition at every level from landscaping to cleanliness to modern room amenities to free breakfast to staff. I was on a driving business trip that included 5 hotel nights and this was clearly the highlight.

Hotel ticks most boxes, great service, nice rooms ( if a little dark), good breakfast, free shuttle bus, but no bar. Fortunately they sell wine by the bottle, and there is a bar at the hotel next door
