SB Down Town Get Away

The hotel and staff was amazing, the ease of getting around was great and still tucked away from the hustle and madness of the down town noise and traffic. I would highly recommend this hotel to anybody want to enjoy a romantic, or Business trip or just to get away and enjoy city life with a small town feel.

Nice hotel, but...

Pros: This hotel is quaint, cute and clean with a very polite staff. Small, but nice rooms with comfortable beds.
Cons: This hotel allows pets, and the pets are often barking at any and all hours - including at night.
Location: Convenient location for shopping and dining on or around State Street.
This is a nice clean hotel with very good customer service. We booked this hotel because it's close to State Street shopping - no car needed for shopping or dining. The only issue was the noise due to it's location near downtown Santa Barbara. Police, ambulance and fire truck sirens were going until the early morning hours. Book a room away from the street unless sleep is secondary on your agenda.

Perfect!

Love, love, love this hotel! Your experience starts with the amazingly friendly and efficient valet service. The location is easy walking distance from fabulous shopping and restaurants on State Street. And the rooftop terrace is perfect for enjoying the pool, Jacuzzi, fireplace, sunshine and fresh air. Order some appetizers and a cocktail while up there! They are wonderfully dog friendly, too, which puts this place over the top for us. Can't wait to go back!
