"Group Friendly property"
Overall Score3.5/ 5
A nice two story property with rooms with interior corridors, an outdoor pool & jacuzzi, free hot breakfast, free wifi and ample parking. Group friendly hotel, with everything a group is searching for rooms with some extra living room space, mini fridge, laundry on-site, fitness rooms, quiet location, etc. It is close to the 101 freeway, just 10 miles from Santa Barbara, close to the local beach, close to shopping, fast food restaurants, grocery stores and quaint beautiful old town Carpinteria. What makes this such a great location is how much you can save just for staying outside of pricey Santa Barbara.

"Great place to stay if you're traveling through pacific one highway."
Overall Score5.0/ 5
Very clean hotel at a good location, near to Santa barbara. Very pleased with the cleanliness and the safety precautions they are maintaining during Covid 19. There's grab and go breakfast with so many options which you can heat up in the microwave of your room and there's free parking too. We really enjoyed our stay.

"Meh"
Overall Score2.0/ 5
We asked for an early check in at 10:00AM and we were under the impression that it was confirmed, but when we arrived we were told that our room was in fact not ready. We were there at 2:20PM. We needed to change our clothes for a wedding that was in town at 3:00PM. We were told we could change in the restroom which we did, but we were disappointed as we had been driving for several hours and were hoping to freshen up. Then, my booking was for fire adults, but we did not have four towels in our room. We needed to ask housekeeping for an additional towel. My daughter was there the day before and her room was not ready at 3:00 which is chech in time. It just seems not very professional. I’ve had much better stays before. Breakfast was great though!
