Good

Perfect location! Directly across the street was a Target and Costco for all our needs! Also right off the freeway, making our drive to Santa Barbara just under 15 minutes! The fitness center only allowed one person per reservation for one hour. So, you are required to book in advance. The swimming pool was sectioned off in two so two parties could be at the pool per reservation. Happy to see these amenities available but you definitely had to plan in advance

Loved this hotel! Rooftop is currently closed due to pandemic which is understandable. Room was spacious and very clean

Terrible staff. Front desk girl was impatient, charged my debit card twice. Then tried covering it up as a bank issue. My funds got locked, spent hours on the phone with the bank trying to release it, while I was supposed to be enjoying my vacation, to then find out from the bank it was her fault. She tried canceling the transaction on her end when the computer was taking too long, but at that point it was already charged and pending on my account, she didn’t take any responsibility for it. Went back to talk to the manager, who was absolutely no help at all, didn’t even bother making a call to check on the issue and just told me “there’s nothing we can do, it’s our systems” without even looking at the computer all based on what I told him. Terrible customer service. Will never be coming back. The room door did not have the sticker seal for COVID cleanliness protocol when we got to the room. Manager said they ran out of stickers, but it should be clean not to worry. Completely careless and unconcerned. Terrible experience, would not recommend.

Great location within driving distance to downtown SB and near a convenient shopping center and Target store. Front desk staff was friendly and rooms were neat and clean. Excellent Covid precautions in the building also!

This was our third stay at this hotel. It is nicely located to shopping and several different attractions. The hotel is very clean and offers a comfortable nights sleep.

The hotel is clean, the personnel is well trained and pleasant. The hotel implemented measures regarding covid, I don’t see what else they could do, other then checking the temperature.

It was close to the airport. And an easy drive to friends in Port Hueneme

Good location, nice property, spacious room, friendly stuff.

Seemed new, clean and close to the best parts of town.

Liked: Very clean. Nice Staff. Convenient breakfast buffet for a fee; ok food and variety. Snacks available. Nice staff. 3 floors with outdoor roof top restaurant with ok food. More of a cocktail lounge than restaurant. Not liked: We stayed on the 3rd floor and the music from the roof top restaurant Thursday - Saturday begins at 6p and end at 8p or 9p. VERY Loud and pounded our room. Having teens, we were not that bothered by it and just kept TV on. But would not recommend for light early sleepers or the elderly. Also, breakfast restaurant staff seemed very new as they seemed a little unorganized.
