Our room was very close to the pool,people were so loud. The hotel doesnt close the pool area at night. A couple were arguing about their stupid problems at pool, very rude. Called the office to stop this awful conversation, somebody came and they stoped. The guy didnt ask the couple leave the pool. After he left AGAIN STARTED AND didnt shot their mouth.

We've been here twice, with a great experience both times. The location is perfect! It's a big property right on the bay in Santa Barbara. The grounds are very well landscaped, with beautiful courtyards, fire pits and peaceful spaces. We miss the post pandemic afternoon wine tasting and breakfast room. We will be back!

We were pretty disappointed because the room was really small and old considering the price. Water ran very weakly, and the shower did not drain well either. The most disappointing was the fact that they required us to pay with a credit card on our own name. I had one room reserved in my name and the other with my husband's name, but they required that I pay for the room with my credit card and did not allow us to pay for both rooms with my husband's credit card. That was just a weird rule that we've never encountered before.
