Thanks Robinsy, Part of our refurbishment project is a much larger breakfast area and a keep upgrade of the entire hotel. Can you imagine how great things will be down here afterwards. I can! Thank you! HJRobbins - GM

We stayed on Fri and Sunday for Labor Day weekend. Everything seemed to be updated/remodeled. The rooms were clean and so were the hotel grounds. The staff was friendly, attentive, and knowledgable. My husband and I would stay here again.

Hi Simon, What more can I say than "Thank you so much". And all that even before our upgrades are complete. We'll see you afterwards, and can't wait to hear your feedback then! All the best. HJRobbins - GM

Nice location in Santa Barbara where one can stroll the boulevard along the waterfront. Plenty of parking, nice reception, good continental breakfast in the lobby, great little courtyard pool and clean, well-appointed rooms.
