Location right on the beach was perfect. It was nice to pick up a free cup of coffee in the reception and take a stroll on the beach to watch seals and birds before breakfast. The beachwalk is perfect for jogging. The rooms are clean but for the price I would expect an upgrade on the furniture and beds. It was a lot of space in and around the hotel with a big lawn and lots of parking. The pool area was not spacious. This is a nice hotel for a family, breakfast is good and I will come back on later visits to Santa Barbara.
