John, gb1 night family trip
Fair 4.0
Easy check in and front desk was nice. Room smelled like smoke and wasn’t very clean. Lots of noise and loud music in the middle of the night, around 3am. Jazuzzi was closed, but we werent informed. Wouldn’t stay again.

Ok, but strong cig smell in room.
The front desk man was nice, clear, and helpful. When we walked into the room is smelled really strong of cigarettes. I was surprised. That part was a tough challenge. I didn't want to change rooms, so we didn't. I just know that I probably won't stay there again, because of that rough smell. The bed was ok. AC worked great. WE stayed in room 135, fyi.

Went to Santa Barbara for the day. This hotel was in the Main Street where things are happening yet still calm. Place was clean, and tidy. Great for the price! Great breakfast spot across the street.

Very pleasant stay
Room was nice, bathroom was ok kind of older seemed like a renovated older hotel. Having said that everything was completely acceptable and a nice stay. We did not have the breakfast mostly because I'm disabled and the food was on the second floor. The only real complaint was the wifi was very weak for the room we were in we were way at the back of the property. Wouldn't trust staying over for work.
