"We were pleasantly surprised by the hotel. We made a mistake and booked for a day later than we would arrive and the staff there worked it all out without a hitch even gave us a free upgrade....now that's service The rooms are so cool, with a a legit record player and several records to choose from, the entire hotel was well thought through. The air controls actually work, we walked in and it was beginning to get that Santa Barbara cold but the heater kicked in and the nigt was perfect. Overall a perfect throwback style hotel that is really well designed for tiday. A must stay in the Santa Barbara area"

"The hotel is nice but need some update. The reason I am not recommending because it happened during our stay, the power went out caused by the older tree snapped and fell on the powerline. We left for dinner at 7pm and came back at 9ish. The fire truck blocked the entrance to the hotel and ar that time there were 3 cars in front of us. The fire department said they are waiting for the tree people. We waited for an hour and left to my daughter 's apartment. I have trying to call the hotel all night and early in the morning but the phone is busy. We ended up sleeping at my daughter's apartment. "
