Rooms were SO small. Smaller than new york hotel rooms. The bathroom wasn't functional at all...drawer didn't even open. Hotel is also a hostel which they don't tell you so there were grimy people walking around the whole time. There was also a creepy janitor...More
The pictures you see are a great representation of what the property is really like. This was my first time in Santa Barbara and for my quick single night stay it was nicely priced for the quality and everything that was included. The staff was...More

Clean, comfortable, and funky at a very reasonable price. I'd stay here every time I visit Santa Barbara. My friend recommended it and didn't steer me wrong. "Alexa" was fun and surprising. Pool was perfect place for some early morning Yoga.More

Samantha - Right in front of the hotel, there are bikes that are labeled "Wayfarer." Not sure if there's a cost, but ask the staff. The hope is that you can use for free.
