Don't stay at Jr. Suite

It sounded very nice idea on description. It's a corner unit so there is less air circulation. So room smells horrible. Worst part is, there is electrical transformer right next to the bedroom window... Noise was so bad... I only noticed after I took shower and went to bed, I couldn't ask them to change the room. When I told them about it during check out, the employee couldn't hide laughing internally... Looks like they know about it... Nice location, but it's not worth the trouble..

Nice hotel, very close to beach.

Pros: Location
Cons: Rooms in need of redo, had a plumbing issue with our bathroom.
Location: Beach, downtown and restaurants.
Hotel very well located such that one can easily walk to the beach or downtown. Rooms are large and comfortable and the staff is very friendly and helpful. Breakfast was very good. Would stay there again.

great value near the harbor!

Pros: Free breakfast, Close restaurants
the staff was exceptional, gave great dining recommendations and tips. Room was comfortable, looking over the pool and away from the street. The street can be noisy with lots of traffic, so if that might bother you and you have a choice, choose the side farthest from the street over the pool. Only noises we heard were of occasional guests passing by the hallway. we also enjoyed our dining experiences at the shoreline and rusty's pizza.

Good family place to stay in Santa Barbara

Pros: Close restaurants, great location
It's not a luxury hotel, but it's a nice place to stay. The kids had a blast in the pool, and we loved the proximity to the beach and bike path. The only con: we had a room overlooking the park, so it was not-so-nice to have a view of its homeless residents, or should I say their view of us?
